Despite having similar names and a similar reliance on electricity, the Chevy Bolt and Volt are not at all the same car. To highlight the differences between these two vehicles, we compared them across several categories, allowing us to get a feel for the technology and features driving each model.
Bolt, Volt. Chevrolet’s two electrified models sound a lot alike but they’re completely different cars. The Bolt is an all-electric car, meaning it does not run on gasoline and relies exclusively on electricity to move forward.
Now in its second generation, the Volt is a plug-in hybrid car equipped with a four-cylinder engine that takes over when the battery runs out of electricity. If you’re not sure which one to choose, read on for our Chevy Bolt vs. Volt comparison highlighting design, technology, performance, and safety.
An electric car is, by definition, a high-tech vehicle. To that end, even the base version of the Bolt comes with a 10.2-inch touchscreen integrated in the dashboard, Bluetooth connectivity, and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay compatibility. Music plays through a six-speaker sound system.
Chevrolet also bundles in a 4G LTE connection, though it’s only active if users pay extra for a data plan, and Chevrolet Connected Access, which gives the driver access to an array of useful information including vehicle diagnostics and dealer maintenance notifications.
The Volt offers the same level of standard equipment, though its touchscreen is a smaller eight-inch unit. In terms of tech features, both models stand proud near the top of their respective segments.
PERFORMANCE AND FUEL ECONOMY
All electric, the Bolt uses a 60-kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a 150-kW motor. In more familiar terms, the hatchback produces 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Its 3,580-pound weight makes it rather portly for a compact car, though it’s on the lighter side of the spectrum for an electric car. Chevrolet quotes a range of up to 238 miles but your mileage will vary depending on how you drive, where you live, and what you routinely carry.
Chevrolet quotes a range of up to 238 miles in the all-electric Bolt but your mileage will vary depending on how you drive, where you live, and what you routinely carry. The hybrid Volt provides a useful 420-mile range before needing to fill up or stop for a charge.
Charging times are ballpark estimates, too. Chevrolet says a full charge takes approximately nine hours when using a 240-volt home charger but about 24 hours when the Bolt draws electricity at the rate of four drivable miles per hour through a standard 120-volt outlet. Fast-charging stations can zap the battery pack with about 90 miles of range in 30 minutes.
The main part of the Volt’s plug-in hybrid drivetrain consists of a pair of electric motors that jointly deliver 149 hp and 294 lb-ft. of torque to the front wheels. They draw electricity from a 18.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that stores enough juice to power the car for up to 53 miles. If your commute is shorter than that, you could theoretically never have to put gasoline in it.

Hate having to fumble for your wallet or plastic payment card just to get some gas in your tank? Chevrolet and Shell know your pain and have developed a solution. You can now pay for gas without even touching your wallet, but you still have to step outside to fill up your car’s gas tank.
That means you won’t have to dig out cash or your credit card and insert it into the smelly gas pump when you fill up. All you have to do is press the Shell logo within the Marketplace suite on the car’s infotainment touchscreen, then select the nearest station for fill-up. The app generates an activation code that the user punches in at the pump. Then, all one has to do is begin pumping gas, and the payment is automatically charged using the method on file. And it even keeps track of your Shell Fuel Rewards savings!
Sounds pretty convenient. And although it’s one less step for the user to do outside of the vehicle, one still has to brave the outdoors to actually pump gas into the vehicle. That is, unless you live in a full-service gas station state like New Jersey or Oregon.
“We introduced Marketplace to deliver value, productivity and convenience to our customers,” said Rick Ruskin, Chevrolet’s senior manager for Online Commerce, in an official statement. “Bringing the Shell Pay & Save functionality right on the touchscreen of our vehicles is the latest advancement of this platform, allowing drivers to simply access Fuel Rewards and pay for gas while inside their car.”
The Shell Pay & Save feature joins Chevrolet MyLink Marketplace and other convenient features such as integrated services for ordering at food establishments, dinner reservation assistance, hotel and parking accommodation services, and more.
The in-dash payment system is currently only available through Shell-branded gas stations in select markets. A nationwide rollout is expected over the next several months and will be available on all Chevrolet models from model year 2017 and newer. This feature is only available in the United States.
It’s called “conquest cash” for a reason, after all.
Last month, we here at The Drive highlighted Chevrolet’s attempts at pulling buyers away from performance rivals by knocking up to $15,000off the price of a brand-new Corvette. But now the automaker has a different enemy in its sights; Chevy, as it turns out is offering a substantial discount to owners of every Asian car brand in America.
Appropriately known as “conquest cash” in the sales business, the $2,500 incentive is available for buyers who own a Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, Hyundai, Kia, Scion, Suzuki, Isuzu, or Daewoo. (Yes, Daewoo.) The only catch is that the car must be from model year 1999 or newer.
Want to know more about “conquest cash”? Call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630 for details. Or, visit our website anytime.
(Note: We also have GM Loyalty Cash Back available on most new models in the month of March)
While $2,500 might not sound like a whole lot, it can be applied to any car or truck (base models excluded) and stacked on other available discounts, including the substantial Flex Cash program that provided the bulk of the big Corvette price cut in February. And you don’t even have to trade in your qualifying vehicle, according to Cars Direct.
As GM Authority points out, the Asian car discount also helps bring the price of a new Chevrolet Sonic down to under $12,000, making it one of the cheapest new cars on sale today.
Sales across the industry have plateaued or fallen this year, so it’s no surprise that Chevy would take such an aggressive approach in targeting its Japanese and Korean rivals. The automaker is also offering a slightly-less-sweet discount for owners of a whole host of other brands, including all domestic manufacturers, supercar makers like Ferrari and Lamborghini, and discontinued oddballs like Fisker, Panoz, and Saab.
