2020 Chevy Bolt EV range increased to 259 miles on a full charge

The 2020 Chevy Bolt EV is getting more electric range, with the official EPA rating rising to 259 miles, up from 238 miles for the 2019 model year. Car and Driver initially noticed the change on the EPA’s fuel economy reporting website. Nothing much has changed as far as the Bolt’s design, so all the efficiency gains must be coming from improvements to the powertrain.
