Should I Buy an Electric Chevrolet SUV in Dixon, IL?

Should I Buy an Electric Chevrolet SUV in Dixon, IL?

The Chevrolet lineup of all-electric vehicles at Ken Nelson Chevrolet is growing, and one of the newest arrivals is the 2022 Bolt EUV. This innovative model is designed to meet the needs of many SUV buyers, so here’s a guide to help you decide if it’s the right choice for you in Dixon, Illinois.

Efficiency and emissions

If efficiency and eco-friendliness are top priorities for you, it’s hard to do better than the Bolt EUV. This electric SUV could potentially save you thousands of dollars in gasoline costs over the years, and its zero-emissions performance is a huge plus for keeping Dixon green and beautiful.

Range and charging

The Bolt EUV boasts a driving range of up to 247 miles and can be charged at home or at a public station.[1] If you commute from Dixon to Rockford or Chicago’s western suburbs where there are numerous charging stations to choose from, staying powered up will be easy. However, if you’re mainly driving long distances in rural Illinois where no charging stations are available, a gas-powered SUV like the Chevy Equinox or Trailblazer might be the better choice.

Size and seating

If a compact SUV is what you need, an electric SUV like the Bolt EUV delivers. This model has room for five passengers across its two rows, including more than 39 inches of rear legroom. It can also hold up to 56.9 cubic feet of cargo. That’s far more than what an electric car offers! However, if you need to carry more passengers or need more cargo space, you’re better off with a three-row Chevy model like the Traverse or Tahoe.

Still have questions about choosing the 2022 Bolt EUV or any upcoming electric SUV from Chevrolet? Visit us here at Ken Nelson Chevrolet in Dixon and we’ll be happy to provide the answers you need.

Chevrolet made a huge splash at SEMA 2021. From high-performance off-road trucks to athletic SUVs, the bowtie brand showcased an array of cool, customized vehicles.

The new 2022 Silverado ZR2 is ready to go from the showroom to the trails, with built-in features like Multimatic 40mm DSSV spool-valve dampers, high-approach bumpers, and 33-inch off-road tires. The Colorado, on the other hand, boasts the Trail Boss Package. This package lives up to its name by providing skid plates, a 1-inch suspension leveling kit, and red tow hooks.

Other stylish and capable models on display as SEMA this year included the 2022 Tahoe Z71 Overlanding concept, which rides on 33-inch off-road wheels, boasts an Off-Road Recovery Kit, and a variety of enhancements available via Chevrolet Accessories.
