This year, in 2022, we see some significant changes in the Chevrolet lineup. It includes the expansion of its EV lineup, where the automaker has introduced a EUV form of its best-selling Bolt series. Those who have already seen the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt, say it is a new version of the same Bolt Hatchback, but comes mostly with an SUV-like stance.
According to the interpretation of the Sandpoint Chevrolet dealer, it is the constant rise in the demand for SUVs that has encouraged all the auto manufacturers, including Chevrolet to make more of them, and thus we see a new EUV version of the E-Crossover SUV model, the Bolt.
Greener Utility Vehicle
The 2022 model year version of the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, which is also its launch edition, shares the same name as the much-known model Bolt, but as an Electric Utility Vehicle. Hence, the intention of Chevrolet behind manufacturing and releasing yet another EV, without a different name becomes clear that the automaker is more concerned about nature conservation than building up its EV profile.
In other words, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV is aimed to reach a greater number of people and encourage them in using a greener utility vehicle, than the costly fuel-guzzling and nature-unfriendly SUVs. The 2022 Chevrolet EUV does not even try to overtake the popularity of its big brother Bolt EV, or other EVs manufactured by other brands.
So, you get a humble 200 hp and 266 lb. Ft of torque making electric motor, working for the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV, which is much similar to the Bolt Hatchback model, but with a single motor setup and a front-wheel-drive setup. To be truthful enough, Chevrolet has kept the 2022 Bolt EUV pretty simple to use, and good enough practical features loaded in it.
With this motor and power setup, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV is not really appearing as a strong contender against the Nissan Leaf, but surely makes the first-time EV buyers happy with its utility score.
The 2022 Bolt EUV carries under its hood a 65-kWh battery pack, which is a figure similar to that of the regular version of Bolt. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV however looks slightly more elongated and weighs nearly eighty pounds more than the hatchback version. This extra-long design of the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV has helped it in maintain the coefficient drag like the EV, so the loss of range is very minimal. Therefore, the 2022 Chevrolet is expected to deliver a range to cross 247 miles, reducing 12 miles lesser than the hatchback version.
Moreover, the 2022 model year edition of the Chevrolet Bolt EUV is made for fast charging, which is just like the Bolt EV version, having a peak power of 55 kW taking only 30 mins to charge fully. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV can cross 95 miles of range and takes nearly 7 hours to be charged from a 240 V charging unit, analyzed the EV experts of the Sandpoint Chevrolet dealership.
