The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt is an all-electric vehicle known for its impressive 238-mile range. The popular electric model has earned a reputation for comfort and reliability. Now Chevrolet can add safety to the list. The Chevrolet Bolt recently earned the Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
According to the IIHS, the Chevrolet Bolt is the first all-electric vehicle to earn the honor. The Bolt scored a top “Good” rating in all five crash tests. Its advanced safety technologies brought it even closer to the top score with a “Superior” rating.
The active safety technologies helped the Chevrolet Bolt stop and avoid collisions as both 12 mph and 25 mph.
The only thing that stopped the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt from achieving the highest Top Safety Pick+ rating was its headlights. While many vehicles feature headlights that are generally rated as too dim, the Chevrolet Bolt’s headlights were the exact opposite. Its headlights were so bright that they could cause glare for oncoming drivers.
Had the Chevrolet Bolt dimmed the headlights a little, it would have earned the Top Safety Pick+ rating with ease.
We here at Fairground Auto Plaza are happy to see the advanced Chevrolet Bolt raises the bar with an abundance of safety features!
