Chevrolet is splitting its Bolt range in two, with the new 2022 Bolt EUV adding a crossover to the electric line-up. The “Electric Utility Vehicle” is, the automaker says, a direct response to one of the most common requests from Bolt EV owners: more rear seat space. So, as well as being more upright, the Bolt EUV is about 6-inches longer, with half of that going into extra rear legroom.
What’s the same is the single-motor electric drivetrain, with its 200 horsepower (150 kW) and 266 lb-ft of torque (360 Nm). No AWD option will be offered. Range is estimated at 250 miles on a full charge; with a DC fast charger, you’re looking at around 95 miles of range added per 30 minutes.
Inside, along with the bump in rear legroom there’s a new 10.2-inch infotainment system. The driver gets a new steering wheel design, and an 8-inch instrumentation display. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, as is a wireless phone charger, while Super Cruise is optional. The 2022 Bolt EUV goes on sale from summer 2021, priced from $33,995 including destination.
