The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV vehicles reintroduces a reliable electrified option, with more to come.
Staying true to their commitment to bring electric vehicles (EVs) to the mainstream, GM launched two new EVs; the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV and 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV.
Consumers may be familiar with the Bolt EV, which GM originally released in 2017. The Bolt EUV (electric utility vehicle) introduces an EV version of the popular cross over category.
Along with much-improved looks for its 2022 Bolt name plate, Chevrolet has made the two models much more affordable.
The two electric Chevrolets will offer low starting prices and an impressive all-electric range. Surprisingly, neither vehicle utilizes the Ultium battery technology that GM has highly touted.
2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV Make Charging Easier
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.
2022 Chevrolet Bolt Cost Less Than 2021 Predecessor
The starting price for both vehicles is less than the 2021 Bolt EV. The 2022 Bolt EUV is priced from $33,9953 (including destination freight charge), and the 2022 Bolt EV starts at $31,995, before any available state, local or utility incentives. Both will be available this summer.
“We’ve lowered Bolt EV’s base price by more than $5,000 from the 2021 model, proving our commitment to make EVs attainable for everyone,” ~ Steve Hill, vice president of Chevrolet.
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.
2022 Bolt EUV First Super Cruise Equipped Chevy
The 2022 Bolt EUV will be the first Chevrolet offered with Super Cruise, the industry’s first true hands-free driver assistance technology. It can be used on more than 200,000 miles (320,000 km) of enabled roads in the U.S. and Canada.
Super Cruise employs many advanced technology features, including a Driver Attention System. The Driver Attention System detects the driver’s gaze has turned away from the road ahead for too long, the steering wheel light bar will prompt the driver to return their attention to the road. If the system determines continued inattentiveness, it will use visible and audible alerts to notify the driver to take back control of the wheel.
Super Cruise is available on Bolt EUV Premier.
Other standard safety features include Chevy Safety Assist which includes safety and advanced driver assistance technologies, such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator, IntelliBeam and Front Pedestrian Braking.
