Has Tesla met its match? This new car is a top contender

Has Tesla met its match? This new car is a top contender

Ask anyone to name an electric car, and they'll probably say "Tesla." It's true that Tesla is currently the king of the electric car market, both in performance and popularity.

However, its vehicles aren't really for everyone. That's why the Tesla needs some healthy competition, like Coke versus Pepsi. Now, it's Tesla versus the Chevy Bolt.

The Bolt, unveiled at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, is an electric car that features blind-spot detection, parallel parking assistance and the ability to stay in a lane. Plus, it has rearview cameras that feed images to the rearview mirror and can go 200 miles on a single charge.
It sports a 10.2-inch infotainment screen, 4G cellular and smart Bluetooth pairing with smartphones. Plus, it can tell who is driving it based on the key and adjusts its settings to match.

On top of that, it looks pretty cool too. Click here to see photos of the Chevy Bolt.

Not bad features for the price. The Bolt starts at $37,495. On top of that, there's a federal tax initiative which is good for a $7,500 credit, which puts the Chevy Bolt at just under $30,000.

Conversely, the Tesla Model 3 sedan will sell for $35,000 and is eligible for the same tax credit, which pushes the Tesla down to $27,500.

Which car would you rather drive? The Tesla or the Chevy? The battle of the electric cars has begun!
