Chevy has got something new that is making highlights. The Chevrolet Bolt, General Motors’ electric hatchback. It will be proficient to go 238 miles (383 kilometers) on a single charge. Talk about fast. If we’re going to talk about competition, the car beats the base rear-wheel-drive Tesla Model S, which can go 210 miles (336 kilometers) per charge, but costs a hell of a lot more. How much exactly? Yahoo Finance says Approximately $28,500 more. So who won the contest here folks?
The Bolt will go on sale soon after this year for about $37,500. It’s acclaimed to be the opening mass-market electric vehicle to traverse the 200-mile (322-kilometer) range. This range should surpass and succeed almost every driver’s daily driving desires. But I’m sure they hope people don’t take advantage of this luxury, as speeding is always a red flag on the roads. I’m sure responsible drivers will use it cautiously. Are faster cars what we really even need thought?
In terms of how long it takes to fully charge the vehicle, it takes 9.3 hours to recharge it. With technological repairs, the Bolt will be able to get software fixes over the Internet.
Late next year, Tesla plans to start selling a more reasonably priced Model 3, at $35,000. Evidently, it will cost less than the Bolt and is expected to go 215 miles (346 kilometers) per charge. Still not as fast as the bolt, but it’s clear that Tesla is trying to compete with it in terms of price, cause people will do anything to save money.
But is that what companies are all about? Competition? There’s an old saying by Edward Bono that goes something along the lines of “Companies that solely focus on competition will ultimately die. Those that focus on value creation will thrive.” I guess we shall see what happens in the long run.
I think what’s most important in a vehicle is it’s safety features. At the end of the day safety first and it seems that the more people speed the higher percentage of accidents and unfortunately deaths. Canada Safety Council claims that researchers discovered places that had amplified their speed limits to 75 mph (120 km/h) experienced an appalling 38 per cent increase in deaths per million vehicle miles than anticipated.
