I took the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV on a 621.4 mile loop to test how quickly it can travel. I’m hoping this can provide a good data point and comparison to Bjorn Nyland’s 1,000 km speed challenges, where he tests how quickly he can travel in modern EVs.
For this trip, I did stick to the posted speed limits; however, I selected a route that would enable me to drive faster than the posted speed limits in many regions. The route also presented additional challenges, such as massive elevation increases, wind, and near freezing temperatures.
I hope this provides a helpful data point, and I might make this trip in other EVs in the future.
