Make Your Spark: Chevy Bolt EV Performance

Taking you from 0 to 60 MPH in only 6.5 seconds, you'll be shocked by how quiet yet powerful this compact car is.

The 2021 Bolt is also armed with One Pedal Driving, a unique system that increases the regenerative braking effect. As you would in any car, press down on the accelerator pedal to speed up. To slow down, simply lift your foot off of the accelerator pedal. By doing so, the Bolt doesn't waste any energy when slowing down and captures more energy to send back to the battery. For sudden stops, you should still use the brake pedal!
