Electric cars are becoming more popular. Even though most remain expensive, it is inevitable that electric cars come as the search for a more environmental transport continues. The electric Chevrolet Bolt production starts, and there are five must-know facts about it.

One of the things about the Chevrolet Bolt is that it is a game changer. Though Tesla is out there with its electric cars, many also see that it is priced much more than most could afford. That is where the second fact about the Chevrolet Bolt comes in, and that it has a price that would be much lower than that of a Tesla.

The Chevrolet Bolt is seen as a more affordable electric car. Its price is $37,495, and that's before a tax break. On average it might sell for around $30,000. That's compared to an average car with a price of around $34,000. With that price, it can then be seen that the Chevrolet Bolt is really a game changer.

Another fact that people need to know is that the Chevy Bolt has a great range. For those who might be afraid that it might run out of power soon, the Chevy Bolt will have a range of 238 miles, according to Phys Org. That would be more than enough for most people.

Another one that people might want to know is how fast the Chevy Bolt would go. Its acceleration is quite fast. It can go from zero to 6o mph in just 6.5 seconds. That is much faster than many cars out there today. It is even faster than muscle cars in the 70s and 80s, as ABC News reports.

With its price tag and other features comes some compromises, though. One fact that should be noted is that interior might not be to everyone's liking. Car and Driver notes that its interior doesn't feel like that of a $30,000 car. This is something that chief engineer Josh Tavel admits, as he said that the Bolt is focused more on its tech than it does on interior design.

All in all, the Chevy Bolt is a car that is highly anticipated. It will first be on sale in California and Oregon before others will get it. Sale of the Bolt will start early next year. The electric Chevrolet Bolt production starts, and people would want to know five must-know facts about it. As environmental concerns mount, there is much concern as scientists say Arctic ice might disappear by 2050.
