Senior citizens have unique vehicle needs, just as every age group does, and not all new models are ideal for more experienced drivers. To help senior drivers find a car that works for their lifestyle, Kiplinger created The 10 Best Cars for Senior Drivers list. The 2020 Chevrolet Bolt earned a coveted spot on the list for its creature comforts, intuitive technologies and all-electric power.
Vehicles on Kiplinger’s list need to perform well in the
areas of accessibility, active safety features and visibility, and the 2020
Bolt EV does just that. The car’s cabin is relatively easy for drivers of all
ages to access, thanks to its flat floor and large doors. In addition, you
don’t have to raise your feet over a sill when entering or exiting the

If you own a Chevrolet Bolt EV, you’re likely familiar with the myChevrolet mobile app’s Energy Assist feature. Chevrolet recently tweaked this great feature to increase its usefulness.
Now, when you use Energy Assist, the
feature will pull on data from your Bolt EV as well as specific charging
networks. This means that you can more quickly locate a charging station with
an available slot. It’s also easier to pay for the charge since you can make a
payment directly from the myChevrolet app. Lastly, you can rate and review
stations to help out other app users.
Energy Assist’s enhancements are
meant to give Chevrolet Bolt EV owners a more holistic charging experience,
both for daily commutes and occasional road trips. It’s also the brand’s way of
rewarding Chevrolet owners for owning eco-friendly models, as the company moves
closer to its zero-emissions vision for the future.
The Energy Assist feature is available to U.S. Bolt EV drivers via the myChevrolet mobile app — and you can use it for the first five years of ownership at no additional cost. Call us at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet for more information about the Energy Assist feature. If you’re interested in purchasing the 2020 Bolt EV, you can browse our website to view the models we currently have in stock.
Before winter arrives, it’s important to prepare your vehicle for the cold weather. Follow these fall vehicle maintenance tips to help take proper care of your vehicle.
Check your battery
The last thing you want is a dead battery on a snowy day. That’s
why you should check the connections to make sure they are clear of dirt. If
you see some corrosion, disconnect the connections and use a wire brush to clean
Replace your wipers
Usually, you should replace your windshield wipers every six
to 12 months. They also need to be replaced if they leave behind streaks of
water. You can typically clean the wiper blades with glass cleaner and a paper
towel to prolong their life for a few extra weeks if necessary.
Inspect your tires
Stick a penny in the tread groove on your tire. When placing
the penny headfirst, if you can still view the top of Lincoln’s head, then you
need to invest in new tires. You may also want to consider purchasing winter
tires for more traction on the snow.
If you discover that you need replacements, repairs or general maintenance for your vehicle, stop by our service department at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet, and we’ll be happy to get your vehicle ready for winter.
Chevrolet has established itself as a leader in the SUV and
electric vehicle segments. Popular SUVs and crossovers like the Equinox and the
Traverse provide modern families with the comfort, versatility, and performance
that they crave. Exceptionally-efficient EVs like the Volt and the Bolt
consistently push the boundaries of eco-friendly driving.
Word on the street has it that Chevrolet intends to offer a
best-of-both-worlds offering in the form of the Bolt EUV,
which the automaker recently registered as a trademark. While many details
remain a mystery, the newly-coined moniker suggests that the automaker might
expand the EV nameplate to Electric Utility Vehicle. This hints that it is
developing a brand-new electric crossover vehicle.
If this speculation proves true, it would be the first-ever
electric SUV from Chevrolet and would expand the brand’s EV lineup. It would also
confirm the automaker’s intention to prioritize new powertrain technologies,
like those found in the 2019 Bolt EV, in the days ahead.
As more consumers demand efficiency and clean energy when
it comes to their next vehicle, it’s likely that the new Chevy EUV will attract
a noteworthy fan base. Contact us at Vann Gannaway Chevy for more news about
the anticipated EUV model. Or, stop by to test drive one of the brand’s current
offerings, like the 2019 Traverse or Equinox.
General Motors recently donated a pre-production model of the self-driving Chevy Bolt, an all-electric hatchback that boasts one of the highest electric driving ranges in the auto industry, to the Henry Ford Museum’s “Driving America” exhibit.
This exhibit shows the growth of innovation in the auto industry over the last 150 years, from the oldest surviving American-made car, the 1865 Ford Roper, to the earliest racing cars of the 1960s. It also has more modern additions such as the first hybrids dating from the early 2000s. As one of the first fully electric cars to incorporate self-driving tech, the Chevy Bolt definitely enhances the vehicle’s “green car” models on display.
GM and Ford may be fierce rivals, but as America’s two biggest native automakers, in many ways they’re partners. GM donated $5 million to the Henry Ford Museum back in 2017, recognizing the value of a museum in preserving American auto history in the Motor City.
Ford plans to display the self-driving Chevrolet Bolt at the very front of the “Driving America” exhibit, according to museum curator Matt Anderson. The Bolt will be the first vehicle the Henry Ford Museum displays that uses self-driving technology, making its inclusion even more special.
Stop by Vann Gannaway Chevy to test-drive the Chevy Bolt for yourself. Or take one of our other shiny new 2019 models for a whirl.
