2017 Virginia Auto Show Was a Success

Auto shows are an ideal place for those interested in expanding their knowledge about cars, SUVs, and trucks. It’s nice to be able to ask questions in a pressure-free environment. Auto shows provide that, thanks to their educational nature.

The Virginia Motor Trend International Auto Show, which took place in Richmond February 17-19, was one of many international auto shows in the country. The Virginia Auto Show presented hundreds of new vehicles, from the latest designs to classic automobiles, even including custom cars. Visitors spent the weekend browsing the versatile displays, and they had time to take in everything from exterior design details to different engine options.

There were plenty of experts on hand at the Virginia Auto Show, so visitors could ask questions and get to know each vehicle. Auto shows, such as this one, are a great place to do some research before buying a new car.  They’re also a nice opportunity to see—or even test drive—some of the newest models in the automobile market.

One of the most exciting new displays at the 2017 Virginia Auto Show was the new Chevrolet Bolt EV. The Bolt EV, which offers around 238 miles of range and accommodating features, won the Motor Trend Car of the Year. Visitors were able to explore all that the Bolt has to offer and learn how it’s doing its part to lead the way toward greener driving options.

North American Car of the Year is 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV

Every year at the North American International Auto Show held in Detroit, a panel of automotive experts and journalists choose what they believe to be the best new car of the year. At this year’s show, held last month, the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV was named the North American Car of the Year.

This award is considered one of the most prestigious awards in the automotive industry. It is the Bolt EV’s latest award in a long list of accolades that includes the Motor Trend 2017 Car of the Year, a spot on Car and Driver’s 10Best Cars list, and more.

“The Bolt EV fulfills Chevrolet’s promise to offer an affordable, long-range electric,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president, GM Global Product Development. “It is a game-changer that is not only a great electric vehicle; it’s a great vehicle — period.”

With the all-new Bolt EV, buyers across the country will get to experience an electric car unlike any other. It offers an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range when fully charged. It has a starting price of $37,495; however, many buyers may be able to qualify for a federal tax incentive up to $7,500, making the Bolt EV cost less than $30,000.

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV has already started arriving at dealerships and will be available nationwide by mid-2017.
