2022 chevrolet bolt EUV vs tesla model 3

2022 chevrolet bolt EUV vs tesla model 3

Most people automatically think of Tesla when thinking of electric cars, even though all motor manufacturers produce fantastic electric vehicles.

 

There are good reasons for this as Tesla vehicles are high-performance, stylish, and have impressive range but is this enough? 

 

If you live in Ottawa and are looking for an electric vehicle, consider the Chevy Bolt EUV. Chevrolet dealers all have the 2022 Chevy Bolt in Ottawa.

 

Let's look at a few pertinent points. 

 

Point #1: Price

Point-1-Price

 

2022 Chevy Bolt EUV $33,995 vs. Tesla 3 at $46,190. 

 

The price on the Tesla reflects its premium label. But do you get a lot more for your money? In the Tesla, you will find faux-leather seats, navigation systems, fancy wheels, heated seats, and hands-free driving. 

 

The top of the range Bolt EUV will give you all of these things for $38,495, still leaving $7,000 in your pocket. 

 

Point #2: Cargo Space

Point-2-Cargo-Space

 

2022 Chevy Bolt EUV with 16.3 cubic feet vs. Tesla 3 with 15 cubic feet.

 

These may look remarkably similar, but how usable is the cargo space in each vehicle. The Bolt comes in a hatchback design that is very cargo friendly, while the Tesla retains its sedan shape, so the cargo space is in the hood.

 

Point #3: Real-World Range

Point-3-Real-World-Range

 

The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV has an EPA-estimated range of 247 miles (400 km), vs. Tesla 3 has an EPA-estimated range of 263 miles (423km). 

 

These two vehicles compare favourably on battery range. In the real world, when the air conditioner is being used and the driver's attentiveness to economic driving comes into play, these results can be very different.

 

Tests carried out by reputable journalists claim that it is relatively simple to exceed the EPA quoted range.

 

Point #4: Dealer Network

 

2022 Chevy Bolt EUV with 3 in Ottawa and 132 in Ontario, 451 in Canada, vs. Tesla 3 with 3 in Ottawa and 9 in Ontario and 21 in Canada.

 

This is a significant fact. You do not want to go on a trip and find that the closest help is hours away. With the Chevrolet network of dealers, help is always close at hand.

 

Final Thoughts

Final-Thoughts

 

The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV may lack the coolness factor of the Tesla, but that is no reason to discount it. This is a lot of car wrapped in a small SUV package. 

 

The Bolt EUV meets and exceeds Tesla in many areas and if you are looking for an electric vehicle in Ottawa, consider the Chevy Bolt EUV.
