Chevrolet expanded its electric vehicle lineup for 2022 with the introduction of the all-electric 2022 Bolt EUV – Electric Utility Vehicle — alongside the redesigned Bolt EV.
For 2023, prices have been dropped significantly, with the Bolt EUV starting at $27,200 (plus $995 freight) for the base LT model, and ranging as high as $32,195 for the top-of-the-line Premier Redline model.
In between are the LT Redline model ($27,695) and Premier ($31,700). The Premier price is down $5,800 from the price of the 2022 Premier model we tested for this report.
EPA ratings show an estimated range of 247 miles on a full charge, with a charging time of 7.5 hours at 240 volts. GM’s own statistics indicate a charging time of 10 hours with the provided dual-voltage charging cord at 32 amps. With a Level 3 fast charger, GM says the Bolt EUV can be charged to up to 95 miles of range in just 30 minutes.
The Bolt EUV’s 150kW electric motor is rated at 200 horsepower and 266 foot-pounds of torque. The car has a 65kWh (kilowatt-hour) lithium-ion battery pack.
There is Electronic Precision Shift with one-pedal drive mode, which slows and can fully stop the vehicle when the driver moves the foot off the accelerator pedal.
While the regular Bolt EV has a hatchback car design, the Bolt EUV takes on the proportions of a small crossover utility vehicle, with only electric drive available.
General Motors says the new Bolt EUV carries the same “proven technology that helped make the Bolt EV the industry’s first affordable, long-range electric vehicle.”
