2017 Chevy Bolt Versus 2016 Tesla Model S 75D

1-pa270244-1 Tesla Model S

The 2017 Chevy Bolt just bested Tesla Model S 75D in its own game. While the Chevy Bolt only has an EPA-estimated range of 238 miles of driving on a single charge, the Tesla Model S 75D has a rate of 259 miles. The specifications would point to Tesla as the better between the two, but Consumer Reports made a head-to-head comparison that just put Tesla to shame.

According to the results of the study, the Bolt outperformed the Tesla by not only reaching its 238 range, but surpassing it by 12 miles to reach 250 miles. The 2016 Tesla Model S 75D, on the other hand, went 235 miles, a lot less than its 259-mile rating and even Bolt’s original range of 238 miles.

The 2016 Tesla Model X 90D, which has a rating of 257 miles, also died at just 230 miles, proving once and for all that you can never trust these electric cars on paper. Consumer Reports has yet to test the 100D variants of the Model S and the Model X, but there are high expectations for these variants. Experts, in fact, agree that the 100D variants would be better than the Chevy Bolt.

But the contention remains on the price. The 100D variants of the Model S and the Model X better give you a rating of more than 250 miles since the starting price is at $100,000 (before the federal tax credit) while the Bolt only has a selling tag of $37,495.

The testing confirmed that the Chevy Bolt should be ranked as the second best all-electric vehicle, next to the Tesla Model S. Aside from the range, the Bolt bested the Tesla Model S 75D in terms of agility and quietness too. It only fell on the categories of having a “squishy” brake, uncomfortable seats, bumpy ride, and the longer charging time. All these, of course, can easily be remedied, but the range remains to be the deal breaker.
