What to Look For From the Chevy Bolt EUV
The Chevy Bolt EUV is an all-electric, SUV-inspired vehicle that is set to hit the auto market for the 2022 model year. Its addition to Chevrolet’s lineup has been eagerly awaited in the auto industry since it was first announced. Chevrolet already has electric vehicles in its vehicle lineup, but the Bolt EUV is special because it introduces an all-new segment of vehicles—electric utility vehicles.
Although the Chevy Bolt EUV has not yet hit the mainstream auto market and will likely not be available for purchase until at least the third quarter of 2021, that doesn’t mean there isn’t already plenty of information out there about this eagerly-awaited vehicle. If you’re in the market for an all-electric SUV, keep reading to learn 5 things you can expect from the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV.
1. Impressive Drive Performance
The Chevrolet Bolt EUV is an all-electric vehicle, which means that it does not source its power from a gasoline-powered engine. Instead, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is powered by an electric motor that delivers 200 horsepower on the road and pairs with a 65.0-kWh battery pack.
This SUV-inspired electric vehicle can drive up to 250 miles on a single battery charge, which is an impressive range among modern all-electric vehicle models. The Bolt EUV’s battery is compatible with both a 120-volt outlet and a 240-volt outlet—the 240-volt connection allows for a faster charge. When connected to a DC charger, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV can drive for up to 95 miles after just 30 minutes of charging.
2. Futuristic Styling
The interior and exterior styling of the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV is unique and looks very futuristic. The exterior of this SUV-inspired electric vehicle is classy and stands out on the road in all the best ways. It is also available with a unique wheel design that gives it a more futuristic look.
On the inside, the 2022 Bolt EUV features a flat-bottom steering wheel, a push-button gear selector, and seat upholstery that is adorned with a futuristic-looking geometric pattern. Its interior also provides plenty of space for both drivers and passengers, offering more than three inches of additional legroom for rear passengers when compared with the Chevy Bolt hatchback.
3. Unique Amenities
The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is available with a host of unique amenities. It comes standard with a digital gauge display, a large 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen, and integrated climate controls.
Other available amenities include a WiFi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto connectivity, a light-up charge port, a sunroof, and a wide variety of advanced and high-tech safety and driver-assist features.
4. Semi-Autonomous Driving System
The premium Launch Edition of the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV is available with an exclusive semi-autonomous driving system that is very convenient and can significantly improve drivers’ enjoyment of their Bolt EUV.
This semi-autonomous driving system is the Super Cruise hands-free driver-assistance feature, and the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV will be the first Chevrolet model to include this system.
The Super Cruise hands-free feature allows drivers to take their hands off the wheel and let their Bolt EUV do the work on the road for them without any assistance on the part of the driver—although drivers must pay attention to the road at all times in order to supplement or intervene in the Super Cruise hands-free feature’s functionality if necessary.
5. Affordable Starting Price
Chevrolet is one of the major automakers in the world, and they are renowned for their relatively affordable starting prices. In most cases, Chevrolet offers a versatile range of model options to their customers so that drivers can choose which model fits their needs, preferences, priorities, and desired price range.
When it comes to choosing which Chevrolet Bolt EUV model to purchase, Chevy makes it very simple for drivers. While most vehicles are available in at least three or four different trim levels, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV only comes in a Base model or a premium Launch Edition.
The starting price for the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV Base model is just under $34,000 at $33,995. When compared with the starting prices of other all-electric vehicles that offer similar high performance on the road, this starting price of the 2022 Chevy EUV Base model is impressively low.
There is a significant discrepancy between the prices of the 2022 EUV Base model and the Chevy EUV Launch Edition model. The 2022 Chevrolet EUV Launch Edition has a starting price of almost $43,500 at $43,495. This means that there is almost a $10,000 difference between the starting price of the 2022 Chevy EUV Base model and that of the EUV Launch Edition.
However, considering the special exclusive amenities that the Launch Edition features—including a semi-autonomous driving system—the higher price of this model is not unreasonably high and is in fact still relatively affordable when compared with other all-electric vehicles of its caliber.
