With the rising crisis of natural resources and fuel price, buying a car without considering its owning cost isn’t a feasible option even for the Richie Rich people. So, when it is time to get a new car, people who also care a bit about the environment will also try to reduce the burden of the running cost of the next vehicle. Hence green cars are the best option considering all these factors. For me it is the 2019 Bolt EV from Chevrolet among the list of green cars that always tops my list of favorites, and here’s why.
It all started when we visited the Smelterville Chevrolet dealer showroom for the first time. There, the 2019 Chevy Bolt EV electric hatchback was standing with a great stance, and after knowing and test driving it, I knew this was the one, I longed to own.
