More likely a typo. Look where B and V are on the keyboard.
But, not likely they would type "Bolt EV" by mistake. And the details/photos all clearly apply to the Bolt EV. Someone at this dealer, who probably took years to understand that the Volt has both electric and gas propulsion, now needs to be schooled on the fact that the Bolt EV does not!

Now there's something, who will be the first manufacturer to get 420 miles on a full charge? 4w0 miles would easily allow me to go to Chicago and back without having to sit and wait for the car to recharge. Put that 420 mile battery into a suburban and I'd be happy to get 200 miles

The new Model S 100D is EPA rated for 335 miles. The next big jump will be 2170 cells. That will probably allow about a 130 kWh maximum pack on current chemistries - which would give something in the 430 mile range if the efficiency is similar.

Getting there isn't Tesla's first priority right now, but I'd expect to see it by late next year if not sooner - Tesla probably won't let the press release folks (Audi, Jaguar, Lucid, etc.) out do them.

Given what I've seen so far in the Bolt EV, I wouldn't be surprised if GM was the first to build a 400-mile EV.

Wait, how far does the 2017 Volt go without refueling? ... ahhh :p
