The Chevy Bolt EV's large central touchscreen is well organized and easy to operate, but it isn't as quick to respond as we'd like. Still, every model has the same set of features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Bolt's infotainment system isn't perfect, but it has enough standard features to satisfy buyers. Likewise, its expansive screen and easy-to-understand controls are simple to operate. While virtually nothing has changed on the infotainment front, a closer inspection reveals that the controls for heat and air conditioning have been separated so they are now individual buttons.

Infotainment Performance

We measure the electrical current that each USB port provides. All USB ports found in a vehicle provide 5.0 volts, per the USB standard. Current, measured in amps, varies and dictates the charge times of devices. The higher the amps, the quicker a device's charge time. Not all USB devices are created equal. Most modern smartphones can charge at 2.0 amps, while slow or stagnant charging can result from using current at 1.0 amp or lower when the device is in use.

Test Results: USB Performance
