Chevy Bolt Production

Two-Hundred-Mile, Electric Chevy Bolt Production to Begin This October

After months and months of anticipation, the much-awaited 2017 Chevrolet Bolt is finally going into production in October, according to Automotive News. A production version of the model was first revealed back in January at the Detroit Auto Show.

 

The Chevy Bolt electric vehicle – which will get an estimated 200 miles on a single charge – will easily be one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the road, raising the bar for the entire industry.

 

This rigorous production schedule will put the release of the Chevy Bolt ahead of both the Tesla Model 3 and the next-generation of the Nissan Leaf. Rumor also has it that some of the Chevy Bolt models will go to Lyft drivers.

 

But do not worry – there will be plenty of 2017 Chevy Bolt production models to go around. To learn more or to “get in line” for a Chevy Bolt, contact us or visit us anytime here at El Dorado Chevrolet.

Prepare Your Car for College With These 5 Easy Steps

Are you planning to take you car to college this year? Whether you are starting your freshman year or you’re a “fifth year senior,” there are some steps you should take ahead of time to keep your car safe and in good shape.

 

Here are some tips to prepare your car for college:

 

  • Make sure that your vehicle is up-to-date on any inspections and oil changes. If you have been annoying any dashboard lights, now is the time to address them.
  • Check out your tires – looking for air pressure, tread, and alignment – and see that they are in good shape before you go.
  • Write a list of all the regular, routine maintenance that your owner’s manual indicates you should follow, and put those dates in your calendar.
  • Also, if you are going to school in a different state, familiarize yourself with any differences in their driving-related laws.
  • Lastly – visit your school ahead of time to secure a parking pass or otherwise confirm that you will be able to park somewhere.
