Chevrolet expanded its electric vehicle portfolio with the introduction of the new, all-electric 2022 Bolt EUV, alongside the redesigned 2022 Bolt EV.
Powering the EVs is an advanced 65 kilowatt-hour, lithium-ion battery pack helps the Bolt EV deliver up to a GM-estimated 259 miles of range (416 km) on a full charge. With the slightly larger Bolt EUV, the GM-estimated range on a full charge is 250 miles (402 km).
The battery system features Chevy’s proven active thermal management system, which uses coolant to maintain the battery at its ideal operating temperature. This technology is a primary enabler of Chevrolet’s 8-year/100,000-mile limited battery system warranty.
Additionally, standard DC fast public charging capability enables the Bolt EV to add up to 100 miles (160 km) of range in 30 minutes and 95 miles (152 km) for Bolt EUV.
With the Chevrolet EV Access package, customers can remotely view their current charging status and battery charge level, customize their charge settings and set up charge notifications via the myChevrolet Mobile App. The Energy feature within the myChevrolet Mobile App can help plan road trips by locating charging stations — including real-time availability — and start a charge session with participating charging networks.
Additional propulsion system highlights include:
- Single-motor drive unit that delivers 200 horsepower (150 kW) and 266 lb-ft (360 Nm) of near-instant torque.
- Regen on Demand that allows the driver to convert kinetic energy into energy stored within the battery for future use by simply pulling on a steering wheel-mounted paddle.
- One Pedal Driving lets the driver speed up, slow down and even come to a complete stop using only the accelerator pedal.
Chevrolet is also making charging more convenient with a new Dual Level Charge Cord, which, for many customers, will eliminate the need to purchase a separate charger for their home. It has a changeable plug that allows the customer to plug into a standard 120-volt three-prong outlet for Level 1 charging and a 240-volt outlet for Level 2 charging up to 7.2 kilowatts.
The new Dual Level Charge Cord is standard with Bolt EUV and is available for Bolt EV. For maximum Level 2 charging speed, both vehicles are now capable of 11 kW Level 2 charging, but separate charging equipment (not included) is required.
Additionally, Chevrolet will cover standard installation of Level 2 charging capability for eligible customers who purchase or lease a 2022 Bolt EUV or Bolt EV, helping even more people experience how easy it is to live electric. In collaboration with Qmerit, the offer gives customers access to faster charging right where they want it — at home — and with the new available Dual Level Charge Cord, a standalone charging station is not required.
When it comes to on-the-go public charging, General Motors is providing customers with convenient and expanded access. GM and EVgo are collaborating to triple the number of fast chargers, with the addition of more than 2,700 chargers around the US by the end of 2025.
Chevrolet customers also have location access to more than 80,000 chargers in North America through the Energy feature within their myChevrolet app. It enables owners to plan and manage their routes more efficiently, locate available charging stations along their route, receive real-time alerts about range and easily pay for public charging through the click-to-charge feature.
The starting price for both vehicles is less than the 2021 Bolt EV. The 2022 Bolt EUV is priced from $33,995 (including destination freight charge), and the 2022 Bolt EV starts at $31,995 (including DFC), before any available state, local or utility incentives. Both will be available this summer.
A special, limited-production Launch Edition of the Bolt EUV is also available, offering the Super Cruise driver assistance feature, sunroof, unique wheels, special badging and an illuminated charge port for $43,495 (including DFC). Customers can reserve the Launch Edition now at www.chevrolet.com.
Inside, both vehicles feature new instrument panels, vehicle controls and seats, with a 10.2-inch-diagonal infotainment color touchscreen and integrated climate controls common to both for clean, intuitive interfaces. The infotainment screen features real-time displays with more details available on the 8-inch-diagonal reconfigurable color gauge cluster.
