The Chevy Bolt, an all-electric car coming to US dealerships this year, has Tesla beat in at least one big way: It can go 238 miles on one charge; the Tesla Model S only goes 208, and Elon Musk says the forthcoming Model 3 is aiming to be able to drive 215 miles on a single charge. Both the Bolt (not to be confused with the Volt, Chevy's gas-electric hybrid) and the Model S use a 60 kw/h battery, Mashable reports. The Bolt will cost $37,500 before federal and state tax credit deductions of around $7,500; the Model 3, whose waiting list has more than 300,000 people on it, will cost $35,000 and won't be out until about a year after the Bolt.
