George Bussey is already sold on electric vehicles. On a gray winter day, he navigates the snow-covered streets of Bayfield in his 2021 Chevy Bolt. Bussey, who lives just south of Ashland, said he’s already put about 17,000 miles on the four-door hatchback since he and his wife Dorota bought it two years ago.
“I just love this car,” Bussey said. “This is my favorite car of all the cars I’ve had … going all the way back to my used 1957 Cadillac.”
Compared to a gas-powered engine, it runs quietly. And Bussey, 74, has also been happy with its range. At its best, the Bolt can go about 250 miles on a full charge. It also was the right price, he said, at about $30,000.
