Performance and charging

Behind the wheel, you can expect 200 horsepower, 266 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 time of 6.5 seconds from your 2023 Bolt EV. It can travel up to 259 miles when its 65-kilowatt-hour battery pack is fully charged, and features like One Pedal Driving and Regen on Demand braking allow for maximum efficiency. Using a public DC fast charger adds 100 miles of range to the Bolt in 30 minutes. If you’re charging at home, the onboard overnight charger draws about 39 miles of range per hour from a 240-volt outlet.
