You can choose one of three modes on the Multi-drive system - Eco, City or Sport. In the normal or City mode, the turbocharged engine responds really nicely to taps on the accelerator. 'Sport' is plenty of fun. You feel a distinct bump up in power when you hit the switch and there is a bit more punch in the top end too. As a result, overtaking on the highway is quite easy and the Bolt has plenty of power in reserve in this mode. 'Eco' - a step down from 'City' - reduces fuel delivery in an effort to improve fuel consumption.
