General Motors Shocks the Industry with Bolt EUV's Record-Breaking 560-Mile Range
General Motors is set to halt production of the Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV by the end of this year.
The Bolt EUV electric crossover is making its debut in Brazil.
General Motors achieved a range record of 560 miles (901.8 kilometers) on a full battery charge for the Bolt EUV.
The Bolt EUV's range is almost double the WLTP range for the Brazilian market and more than double the EPA-estimated range.
Over 70 individuals participated in an efficiency challenge, driving the Bolt EUV for 28 hours and 30 minutes.
The challenge took place at GM Brazil's Proving Grounds and tested the Bolt EUV's energy efficiency.
Participants drove the Bolt EUV at low speeds and used techniques to minimize energy consumption.
The Bolt EUV set a world record for the longest range achieved by the model and any EV in its category.
General Motors plans to introduce next-generation EVs, including the Blazer EV and Equinox EV, to Brazil after discontinuing the Bolt EV and EUV.
