Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV 2022: new hatchback and Bolt SUV.

On February 14, two new electric cars were presented in the United States. One of them is the restyled Chevrolet Bolt EV hatchback, which is an improved version of the 2017 model.

The second one is a completely new crossover Chevrolet Bolt EUV, which is built on the basis of the usual Bolt, but differs from it in the form factor and partly in the package. The expansion of the family should help to attract additional customers who prefer SUV vehicles.

Both models will go on sale in the US this summer. The Chevrolet Bolt EV hatchback after restyling has fallen in price by $ 5 thousand and now costs at least $ 31,995 (2.36 million rubles).

Its counterpart with the prefix EUV (stands for Electric Utility Vehicle) is offered at a price of $ 33,995 (2.5 million rubles).

Design and dimensions

The base five-door Bolt EV has acquired a new face during modernization with narrow headlights and a body-colored plug in place of the radiator grill.

At the stern, the lights and bumper received a different design. The dimensions of the hatchback were 4145x1765x1611 mm with a wheelbase of 2600 mm.

The Chevrolet Bolt EUV crossover has a similar body design, so from some angles the cars can be confused.

However, the newcomer of the family is given out by different proportions, a higher belt line, a different configuration of the roof pillars and the presence of roof rails.

The SUV is slightly longer than the hatchback: its wheelbase is increased by 75 mm (up to 2675 mm), and the overall length — by 161 mm (up to 4306 mm).

The width and height are almost identical — 1770 and 1616 mm (both there and there +5 mm).

Restyled Bolt has got a new front panel, as well as other seats and steering wheel. On the central tunnel, the transmission control joystick has been replaced with a keypad, and in addition to this, a one-pedal driving button has been added to enhance the degree of recuperation when braking with the accelerator pedal released.

There are two information screens: the virtual instrument cluster has a size of 8 inches, the screen of the main media center is 10.2 inches.

The Bolt EUV crossover got almost the same interior as the hatchback. However, there are original door cards, and even more spacious rear seats, because the rows are 76 mm apart compared to the original model.

The trunk turned out to be less spacious: 462 liters versus 470 liters for the base EV version.
