2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Named NACOTY

As the show-starter for the annual Detroit Auto Show, the North American Car and Truck of the Year awards have been announced. This year the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV rather unexpectedly took the crown.

The Bolt EV marks the first mass-market electric vehicle to achieve over 200 miles of range for $30,000 after tax incentives. Such a landmark achievement made the Bolt EV sort of a shoe-in for top honors. This award joins numerous other industry accolades the Bolt EV has been awarded.

While Bolt EV took the car award, the Chrysler Pacifica took the North American Utility of the Year award, a new category this year to reflect an evolving market. The Pacifica recently launched as Chrysler’s new minivan to much fanfare.

The award love was spread further with the Honda Ridgeline taking the honors in the truck category. The Ridgeline recently relaunched for its second generation.
