The Chevy Bolt EV became a big hit since its first released 3 years ago. Many people have loved this car since it has a fresh design with an electric utility. Chevrolet will also be releasing another vehicle they call the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt SUV to repeat the successful sales. But what will be the difference between the EV and SUV?
Well, one thing for sure, Chevrolet is making its way to all-electric cars. After releasing the 2017 Bolt EV, this time, they are targeting the SUV category. Even though they are not using EUV as the name, but this car will be electric.
What will the Bolt EUV look like?
Chevrolet has not yet released the car’s official picture, but the prototype pictures have been released. At first sight, people can see a midsize car, a bit bigger than the Chevrolet Bolt EV. Compared to its sibling, it has an additional 8-12 inches over the standard Bolt EV. However, it doesn’t change the overall size and makes it look mini compared to another SUV.
From the front side, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt SUV looks a bit like the 2020 Chevrolet Menlo. This car was released last year, also with a new battery-electric compact. However, the SUV Bolt length is shorter, making it look more mini from the Menlo EV.
Despite the size, this Chevrolet SUV has sharp lines designs on both sides of the car. It has drawn-back upper lighting elements to make it look bold to support the look. However, these designs are almost the same as the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer made in the calmer design.
2022 Chevrolet Bolt SUV Interior
Peaking the inside of the 2022 Bolt, there is not too much change in the design. You will still see the same design as the current Chevrolet EV. However, to upgrade this car, they made small but important changes for technology and access.
One of the biggest changes they have is the larger LCD inside the car. The previous car was an only 8-inch screen; however, they upgraded it to a 10.2-inch LCD. The screen’s position is also made a bit different, a bit lower to ease its accessibility. So, once you need your screen, you can access it easily.
Other than the screen, Chevrolet has also designed different locations for some physical buttons inside. This is due to give a bigger screen to the passengers and drivers but also better access. People will see most of them on the driver’s side edge rather than on the tap boards. As for the hazard button, it is front of the passengers’ side of the display.
The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt SUV will have a different style and design from the previous one for the cockpit. The cockpit used in this car will be smoother and integrated with the technology too. It is also located on top of the dash, making it easier to see and control.
As for space inside, you won’t need to worry. Because just like other Chevrolet cars, the space is wide and comfortable. Both the front and a second row will have wide space so you can relax your feet.
2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV Battery Range & Performance
Surprisingly, the Bolt EUV will not be available in all-wheel drive. It will also not be using the new proprietary Ultrium battery, the new technology from Chevrolet. So, don’t expect a new machine for the upcoming EUV.
The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV will be coming with a 66kWh battery pack and a BEV2 platform. With this set, the car is expected to go up to 259 miles without additional charging. Even though it is not new, but it is good enough to compete with its existing competitor.
Another great thing about the 2020 EUV is that it can charge faster than the previous model. It has a 2 faster level charging make it faster to charge the whole battery set fully.
The new EUV will include new upgrades that the regular Bolt will not have. One of the features is a sunroof and highlighting Super Cruise. With the sunroof, people can feel the fresh air and the sunlight from inside the room. They can control the sunroof from the bottom buttons that are available on the boards.
The cruise control system allows drivers to drive without having their hands on the wheel. You can say that this is a hand freewheel, especially if you are on the freeway.
2022 Chevrolet Bolt SUV Release Date & Price
The price will start around $37,000 up to $42,000 for the basic type of car. This is quite affordable as other types of cars in the market are a bit more expensive.
To enjoy all the features and technology in the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt SUV, you will have to wait around December 2021. Ford has been trying the car on the road, and if there is no big issue, they will release it soon.
