Motor Trend Car of the Year Evaluation Criteria

Each vehicle evaluated by Motor Trend for their Car of the Year award is assessed according to six basic categories: striking design, quality engineering, fuel efficiency, safe construction and features, buyer value, and how well it performs as intended. The 2017 Chevy Bolt excelled in all of these criteria, offering an engaging and attractive style and excellent safety features.
