Chevy Bolt Praised For Dynamic Driver-Assist Tech As 2021 AAA Car Guide Winner

2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV

Locating a new vehicle that has the most modern and useful driver-assist technologies has long been at the top of customers’ priority list here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis, with Automatic Emergency Braking as a top-ranking wish. The AAA found last year that 67 percent of drivers had it listed as their highest priority, while Reverse Automatic Emergency Braking ranks second for those ready to purchase. 

AAA does its auto-feature focused duty annually by releasing a car guide providing thorough ratings and reviews to help shoppers find the exact and most fitting match for them. The 2021 Chevy Bolt EV Premier took first place in this year’s Guide’s ranking for the small vehicle category. Another top concern among those looking for an EV is the driving range, and the 2021 Chevy Bolt EV Premier delivers a robust 259 miles, also earning a 5-star safety rating from the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration. 

Cars powered by electricity are in the well-illuminated loop for offering abundant technology features that are class-leading and saving lives every day. The 2021 Bolt EV Premier includes HD Surround Vision, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Rear Park Assist. You’ll also be fully equipped with Teen Driver, which lets you closely monitor the performance and habits of those in your home who just got their new license! Long gone are the days when you are left without a clue as to how far your teen is driving, how fast, and most importantly, how reckless. 

Report cards gleaned from apps such as Teen Driver are also a great aid in lowering your insurance bills as well! With instant acceleration, the fantastic driving range, and spacious cabin, and very popular standard features make it one of this year’s best options for mainstream-brand shoppers. With the fast-charging option, you can gain up to 100 miles in range in just 30 minutes, and the one-pedal-driving option has been appreciated by numerous test drivers and review professionals. The Premier trim adds the extra-cool features of ambient interior lighting, leather seats, and heated rear seats.

The Bolt’s steering has been rated as appropriately quick and accurate, and the brake pedal provides ample and very firm stopping power. The digital instrument cluster display and central touchscreen have a modern and sharp appearance, and the interior is large enough to fit five adults. On top of winning many awards and enjoying placement on multiple lists such as this AAA ranking, the brand-new Bolt EV Premier owner will also enjoy premium warranty and maintenance coverage, with a powertrain warranty covering 8 years or 100,000 miles.
