General Motors' Chevrolet Bolt rated as best among electric vehicles

The Chevrolet Bolt, GM's first mass-market electric car, won Car of the Year at the Detroit Auto Show Monday.

It was the third significant honor for the breakthrough car. The Bolt had already won the Motor Trend Car of the Year honor in November, as well as the Green Car of the Year award given out at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Bolt is estimated to go 238 miles on a single charge. At a sticker price of about $30,000 after tax breaks, the plug-in Bolt will be less than half the price of the only other cars go more than 200 miles on a charge -- the Tesla Model S and Model X. The first of the Bolts were sold in California last month, with a national roll out anticipated later this year.

The Bolt beat out the Genesis G90, the key to Hyundai's attempt to establish a new luxury brand. It also beat the Volvo S90.
