The windows are large and at the roof, there is a full-length frosted glass allowing sufficient light to come in the vehicle. The dashboard follows the typical dual cockpit style employed by Chevrolet on all their cars, the only difference being that the in the 2018 Chevy Bolt, a touchscreen control interface is also included.
Unlike other electric-powered vehicles expected on the market, the Bolt EV also comes with a connected app. The app allows you to use your smart phone as a key fob for the vehicle. With the app, you are in a position to access ride sharing opportunities that could be available. The app also makes it possible for the car to park itself in a parking garage, and go to the owner when summoned. You can also connect to your smartphone by using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Chevrolet has gone out of its way to ensure that the occupants will not only be safe while in the vehicle, but they will also be comfortable. 2018 Bolt comes with custom leather seats and anti-collision airbags, cruise control, seat belts in each and every seat and also includes satellite navigation. All these are crucial elements to have in any modern-day vehicle.
