Electric cars provide an eco-friendly alternative to the road, and with recent innovations, the range of electric vehicles has improved giving drivers more time on the road and less time spent charging. If you’re in the market for an EV, consider the 2019 Chevy Bolt, as it just made U.S. News & World Report’s list of the Electric Cars with The Longest Range in 2019.

“The Chevrolet Bolt EV is practical, fun to drive, and offers more range than a majority of electric vehicles,” writes U.S. News & World Report writer Steven Loveday. “It delivers lively acceleration, agile handling, good road grip, and strong braking.”

Safety features and a long list of standard features also impressed the experts at U.S. News.

“This Chevy earns good crash test scores and an above-average rating for predicted reliability,” Loveday writes. “It comes equipped with a laudable array of standard features, including an intuitive infotainment interface, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and GM’s Teen driver safety system.”

The 2019 Bolt EV is available at two trim levels — LT and Premier. Its powertrain of an electric drive unit and single-speed direct-drive transmission generates 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. It earns a rating of 128 MPGe in the city, 110 MPGe on the highway, and a 119 MPGe combined rating with an estimated 238-mile range.
