A fast, unplanned Independence Day jaunt to central Massachusetts from Boston gave us the chance to check the effectivity and charging capabilities of our 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV (FWD, Premier) and 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 (AWD, Restricted).
We already know from earlier comparisons (watch right here: https://youtu.be/gWkH8RUfoQc) that the lighter and smaller Bolt makes use of its smaller battery pack extra effectively than the heavy Hyundai, however how a lot distinction will it make once they drive the identical roads in the identical situations?
We additionally dropped in a fast cease at Electrify America on the best way again to emphasise the gulf in quick charging capabilities between these two very totally different electrical vehicles.
