The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV – building a better future
Chevrolet’s second-ever all-electric vehicle is the 2022 Bolt EUV, a small-sized crossover SUV built on the frame of its predecessor, the compact Bolt EV. With a wheelbase stretched 2.9 inches and longer by 6.3 inches in total, the EUV comes with added legroom for backseat passengers as well as a suite of extra standard and optional tech features.
With a spacious interior, more options, and a lower price tag, the EUV is sure to draw lots of attention in the coming year. Having had the experience of building the EV and taking feedback from its customer base, Chevrolet improved both vehicles for their 2022 model years and for the EUV that spells more legroom for passengers in the backseat, a redesigned, more comfortable pair of front seats, and a cargo area of 16.3 cubic feet behind the second row that can stretch to 57 behind the first row of seats.
With squinting headlights and a minimalistic, futuristic exterior look, it's clear that there's no gas motor under the EUV's hood. Instead, the car is propelled by an electric motor that takes its power from a 65-kWh lithium-ion battery that's situated underneath the car to help maximize cargo and legroom up above. The engine can produce 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque and you won't find any small, gas-powered crossover come anywhere near those numbers.
With a maximum estimated range of 247 miles, if fully charged, the EUV comes with a dual-level charge cord that can be plugged into both 120- and 240-volts outlets. A full charge will take you around nine hours but that can be lowered to seven hours if you own a level 2 home charging station, a feature that GM will fully pay for for certain customers.
A trip to any of the fast-charging stations from the ever-expanding DC network will get you an extra 95 miles of range in just 30 minutes.
On the inside, the dash is dominated by a huge 10.2-inch color touch that will give you access to one of the most user-friendly and responsive infotainment systems on the market. All EUVs also come with standard Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth audio and video streaming.
More importantly, they're also equipped with a long list of safety features that include Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.
As far as optional equipment goes, future owners can choose between luxury and comfort-enhancing features such as a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, heated back seats, and wireless charging. The EUV also comes with a Chevrolet first which is the availability of GM’s hands-free assistance technology dubbed the Super Cruise. No other Chevrolet has ever had this option before but we expect that many will from this point on.
