It'S calling the euv and ford also has come in with the mustang maki electric suv. Now, while these two might technically not be in the same class, i can see some cross shopping going on it's ford versus ferrar. I mean chevy in the battle of the electric suvs. Now first, we need to get these two electron gobblers on an even playing field. Price wise, so i'm gon na go with the launch edition of the bolt euv at 43 495, including destination the base mustang machi that's. The select trim that can be had starting at 43 995 dollars pretty evenly matched Music. The front wheel, drive bolt. Euv gets a 65 kilowatt hour battery good for 250 miles of range, while the mach e can get up to 305 miles of range. Remember we are talking about the base model here. The rear wheel, drive select, has a 68 kilowatt hour battery with a range of 230 miles. The select is also available in all wheel drive, something not offered on the volt euv dropping the range to 211 miles so when it comes to range 0.1 for chevy. As for charging, the bolt gets 95 miles of range in 30 minutes on a dc fast charger. The mach e can also accept fast charging and it can go from 10 to 80 of a charge in 45 minutes or 184 miles. Now. Remember that ev charging times aren't linear, so i can't just do the math here and tell you how many miles the mach e would get in 30 minutes.
Electricity. Just is really finicky like that. Now, if you're charging at home on a 240 volt outlet, the bolt euv would take 7 hours for a full charge or about 36 miles per charging hour. The maki. Meanwhile, on that same 240, volt outlet, it can only shove 20 miles per charging hour into its battery, so it would take 11 and a half hours to fully charge. Damn chevy takes it again. The bolt euvs motor pushes out 200 horsepower and while the mach e can go much higher than that, but we're talking about the select trim here so we're. Looking at 266 horsepower, the bolt also gets 266 pound feet of torque, while the mach e does much better. At 317, pound feet of torque option that up to all wheel, drive and the mock ease. Torque goes to 428 pound feet of twist, and finally, we get a point for the mustang. Now when it comes to size, the bolt euv is much smaller than the maki. As to be expected, the wheelbase is 12 inches shorter and it's 16 inches shorter overall height of the two is about the same, but the front and rear track on the volt uv is about four inches narrower than the maki. As for cargo, the bolt euv can hold 16.3 cubic feet of stuff behind the rear seat. The bigger machi is at 29.7 cubes. Surprisingly, they both even out a bit when the rear seat is folded.
56.7 cubes for the bolt euv and 59.7 cubes for the mach e. The maki also has 4.7 cubic feet of space in the frunk. Something that's not even offered on the bolt euv now i'm tempted to give it to the bolt here for providing almost the same amount of overall cargo space with a smaller footprint. But i just love a good frunk, so point mustang score so far, we're tied at two, the chevy bolt euv in this launch edition, gets the hands free, supercruise driving assistance technology. This will also be offered on the top premiere trim and it works on over 200 thousand miles of roads in the us and canada. This system has previously mapped roads in its brain, and then it uses real time. Gps information, lidar cameras and sensors to safely navigate those roadways. You still have to pay attention, of course, but man i really dig supercruise. The maki gets adaptive cruise control with lane centering, but the technology is just not nearly as robust as supercrews chevy, plus one for super cruise Music. All right, it looks like we have a winner coming in with three points versus two points: the 2022 chevy bolt launch edition. Euv beats the mustang machi select trim. Of course, if you want to spend more money on a maki, you can of course get more power and range, but honestly i'm really surprised that these two cars can compete at all, even if it is top trim versus bottom trim.
Applause all right. What do you think you're gon na spend 43 grand on an electric suv you going for the bolt you going for the maki.
