Why a Hobbit Would Appreciate the Chevy Bolt EV

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

September 22 is Hobbit Day. It’s the joint birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, as avid Tolkien fans will recall. In honor of this unique holiday, we’ve gathered just a few reasons that a hobbit would choose a Chevy Bolt EV as their personal vehicle.


The average hobbit height is three feet six inches tall. Thus, a hobbit would prefer a concise car model to a larger sedan, crossover, or SUV. The dimensions of the 2019 Chevy Bolt EV would provide just enough space for a hobbit (and a few of their friends) without overwhelming them with too much interior volume. This ride boasts 39.7 inches of headroom in the first row, and 37.9 inches in the back. The front seat yields 41.6 inches of legroom, while the back seat yields 36.5 inches.


Eco-friendly performance

Keeping the world fair and green — especially The Shire — is a hobbit’s top priority. So, purchasing a car with superb efficiency ranks high on their list. The 2019 Chevy Bolt EV has an MPGe of 128 in the city and 110 on the highway. That mileage rating should put a smile on any hobbit’s face.


Storage features

The 2019 Chevy Bolt EV incorporates storage details that would help a hobbit stay organized on trips. The seatback map pocket will accommodate maps a hobbit would need for their next adventure. 

Additional storage, such as the front console, glovebox, and trunk, will provide additional room to stow second breakfasts, mushrooms, and other food items they’ll likely insist on bringing. And with six cup holders throughout the cabin, hobbit passengers can relax with their favorite drink as they follow wherever the road takes them.
