Long Awaited 2017 Chevrolet Bolt Debut Takes Place at Vegas Show

Chevy Bolt

After months of anticipation, the official 2017 Chevrolet Bolt debut finally took place at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, with many details on the remarkable vehicle.

Not only will the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt be able to travel up to 200 miles on a single charge, but also, it’s astonishingly affordable. At $37,500, the Bolt is nearly half the price of the Tesla Model S 70, which has a range of 240 miles but costs $70,000.

And after tax incentives, the Chevy Bolt could be up to $7,500 cheaper, the specifics of which should be revealed soon.

Unfortunately, the Chevy Bolt isn’t set to go into production until later this year. It’s safe to say that in the meantime, other automakers will be doing their best to catch up with this game-changer.

Fact or Myth: Should You Warm Up Your Car in the Morning?

Now that it’s really starting to get cold, it’s tempting to head outside a bit earlier than usual to “warm up” your car before it’s time to go.

But is this practice as necessary as many believe? Is it the fastest way to get your warm up your car? And is it safe?Warm up your car

Despite widely held belief, vehicles are designed with cold temperatures in mind and don’t need more than about 30 seconds to get ready. Driving your car will warm up the various components (like the oil and engine) faster than idling would.

Plus, idling your car not only wastes gasoline and precious money, but also, frequent, prolonged idling can be severely damaging to the engine and more, or lead to failure of the catalytic converter.

Plus, warming up your car for the sake of a cozy interior can contribute significantly to air pollution.

As long as your car isn’t more than 20 years old, it’s safe to assume that it will warm up just fine on its own, once you start driving. For more winter tips, visit us at Joe Holland Chevrolet.
