An attractive alternative to gas powered cars, electric vehicles offer optimal efficiency, enterprising performance, and innovative technologies to promote an environmentally friendly lifestyle. LaFontaine Chevrolet Dexter has a comprehensive inventory of electric vehicles, each with exceptional electric car range ratings.

In case you require some explanation as to what electric range entails, here is our complete breakdown and guide of everything you need to know about electric mile ranges.

Electric Range Defined

Electric cars plug into a charge point and take in electricity from the grid. That electricity is then stored in rechargeable batteries that power an electric motor.

Electric range is the estimated number of miles your car can travel while charged before the battery runs out of juice. Whereas the fuel economy for gas powered Chevrolet vehicles is measured by how many miles your vehicle can travel on a specific amount of fuel, i.e., miles per gallon (mpg).

What is the Range of an Electric Vehicle?

This is a point of concern for those who are weary of adopting the all-electric lifestyle. Notable worries include range anxiety and not being able to find a charging station when driving long distances. What really makes it difficult to answer this question is the fact that the total range for an electric vehicle will vary from model to model.

For example, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV has an estimated electric range of 259 miles on a full charge, while the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV has a total range of 247 miles. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV and the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV are two exciting models that give you the kind of performance capability you expect from Chevrolet, in addition to heightened efficiency.
