LOS ANGELES, CA: The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV (electric vehicle) was named Green Car of the Year at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Given annually by U.S. publication, Green Car Journal, it won the award by boasting an estimated range of 238 miles in all electric driving with zero emissions.

The Bolt is credited with being the first production EV with a 200-mile plus range thanks to its large 288-cell lithium-ion battery with a 12-hour charging time on the standard household outlet,

This is the second year in a row Chevrolet has won the Green Car award. Last year the second-generation Volt plug in hybrid with its 53-mile all-electric range took the honours.

In the U.S. it will have a starting price of (US) $37,495 (not counting rebates) making it the first mid-price all-electric on the market.

Canadian pricing, rebates and availability have not been announced.
