Among the several brands that produce electric vehicles, Chevrolet is a worthy contender. Its parent company, General Motors, manufactured and sold the first mass-produced electric car back in 1996. While the EV1 from General Motors is no longer available, Chevrolet has used its experience as a reliable auto manufacturer to create an excellent lineup of electric vehicles.

Here at Apple Chevrolet, we want to help you find the perfect electric vehicle. Check out this guide to learn about the brand's four electric models. In addition to their key specs, we'll discuss why each one might be right for you.

Chevrolet Bolt EV

The first electric vehicle in Chevrolet's lineup is the Bolt EV. This model debuted in 2016 and has become a staple among consumers ever since. Consumers can currently buy brand-new 2022 and 2023 models, but know that we're focusing on the latest version when we mention exact specifications. The Bolt EV's MSRP (manufacturer's suggested retail price) of $25,600 makes it an economical option for any driver looking to reduce their ecological footprint. The vehicle has a compact hatchback body style and can seat up to five passengers, with rear passengers enjoying 36 inches of legroom.

A fully charged battery provides the Bolt EV with an estimated range of 259 miles, giving you plenty of charge for long commutes and short road trips. The vehicle is fun to drive thanks to the ability to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 6.5 seconds. It also provides 200 hp and offers Sport Mode for when you need an extra boost. Drivers also appreciate the standard Chevy Safety Assist suite, with key features including front pedestrian braking, forward collision alerts, and automatic emergency braking.

Chevrolet Bolt EUV

Next up in Chevrolet's lineup of electric vehicles is the Bolt EUV. This vehicle hit the Mexican market in 2021 and became available for sale in the U.S. a little less than a year later. Despite the Bolt EUV having 2022 and 2023 models, we'll focus on the latest version as we did for the Bolt EV. The Bolt EUV has more of an SUV body style and offers a maximum cargo volume of 56.9 cubic feet, making it an excellent option for families who need plenty of storage space.

It also provides slightly more legroom for rear passengers (39.1 inches), resulting in more comfortable rides. The larger vehicle is naturally going to result in slower acceleration speeds and a shorter driving range with a fully charged battery, but the numbers are still impressive. You can get from zero to 60 miles per hour in seven seconds and drive up to 247 miles before needing to recharge. Other highlights include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and real-time energy and charging stats.

Chevrolet Blazer EV

If you're looking for a more traditional SUV without sacrificing the benefits of an electric vehicle, consider the Chevrolet Blazer EV. Two trim levels are set to come out in the summer of 2023, with subsequent trims launching in the fall of 2023 and winter of 2024. The four options ensure you get all the features you want and nothing you don't. For instance, you might opt for the 1LT trim level if you want the most affordable option that still provides essentials like a 17.7-inch diagonal touch-screen display.

The next trim level, the 2LT, offers perks like increased battery capacity and available advanced safety features. You might also opt for the available Super Cruise driver assistance technology to experience hands-free driving. The RS trim level is ideal for those who want an impressive driving range of up to 320 miles on a fully charged battery. You can also benefit from the available rear-wheel drive or electric all-wheel drive to improve traction. If you get the SS trim level, you'll see just how fast an electric vehicle can be thanks to zero-to-60 acceleration in under four seconds.

Chevrolet Silverado EV

The Chevrolet Silverado is making its debut in the fall of 2023 and plans to revolutionize what we know about not only electric vehicles but also trucks. You can expect this unconventional truck to combine power with speed, agility, and aerodynamics. For instance, consider that it provides over 660 hp and up to 780 lb-ft of torque. The maximum towing capacity is 10,000 pounds, and this number increases to an available 20,000 pounds on the future WT model. Additional power is available thanks to the Four-Wheel Steer system and Four-Corner Air Ride Adaptive Suspension.

You'll also appreciate its 400-mile range on a full charge and ability to accelerate from zero to 60 in under 4.5 seconds. Despite the truck being bigger than what you might be used to driving, you'll be glad to hear that it's relatively easy to handle. Drivers love the 14 available camera views and overall enhanced handling. Whenever you make sharp turns or pull into tight parking spaces, you can count on the four wheels working together to create a more-than-manageable turning radius.

Chevrolet Equinox EV

The final electric vehicle in Chevrolet's lineup is the Equinox EV. This model is electrifying much of what we know and love about the traditional Equinox and will roll out its first available trim level in the fall of 2023. Information is still limited, but we know the Equinox EV will feature a sleek new design and inviting walk-up lighting. Chevrolet has also announced that the LT trim level will have a starting MSRP of $30,000, meaning the model will likely retain the traditional Equinox's affordability.

We hope this guide on the Chevrolet electric vehicle lineup helps you decide which is right for you. Whether you're looking for an affordable car, family SUV, or powerful truck, you can trust that this manufacturer has a reliable electric version.
