The Chevy Bolt is as modern as they come. This compact electric car is appealing to any driver who is looking to go green. But choosing a car that’s friendly towards the environment doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice other redeeming qualities, like style or technology. The Chevy Bolt has plenty of all of these things, and recent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing has proved that the Chevy Bolt is well-equipped when it comes to safety, too.
The IIHS performs different crash tests on vehicles to determine how they will handle potential collisions. These crash tests are divided into five categories. The Chevy Bolt earned a rating of “Good” (the highest possible) in all five, as well as a rating of “Superior” in front crash prevention when equipped with forward collision warning and automatic braking technology. These are the ratings required to earn the IIHS Top Safety Pick award, which now belongs to the Chevy Bolt.
Forward collision warning and automatic braking are just two of a handful of advanced safety features that provide peace of mind when driving the Chevy Bolt.
