When it was launched four years ago, the Chevy Bolt began its legacy as GM’s first all-electric vehicle for the everyday driver. A range above 200 miles, reasonable price, and spacious interior have all been attractive features, and the 2022 Bolt is bringing even more to the party!
First off, the Bolt EUV has a six-inch increase in overall length in the backseat, making it roomier inside than Ford’s EV SUV. The material quality and feel have been upgraded, and what began as an eco-friendly urban commuting model has now been updated with the brandished interior touches that are aligned a bit more with what the best luxury crossovers offer.
The regenerative braking system in the Bolt EUV captures kinetic energy during deceleration, storing it in the battery so it can later be used as electric power. Drivers love this system, as it feels more natural than similar types in other EVs, and the one-pedal functionality makes for smooth stops without the need to touch the brake pedal.
Using the 65 kilowatt/hour lithium-ion battery used in the Bolt EV, the EUV has a predicted range of 250 miles, adequately equipping most urban commuters with enough juice to get through the week! Drivers also love that the Bolt EUV is easy to operate, and you don’t have to constantly take your eyes off the road to make changes to the infotainment or climate controls.
At a cost much lower than competitors like the Tesla Model 3 and Mustang Mach-E, the Bolt EUV has now added standard fast-charging capability, with a full recharge on 240 volts taking around seven hours. To sweeten the deal and encourage eco-safe driving, Chevy will now help to cover the cost of installing a convenient Level 2 home charger to qualified customers who purchase or lease a 2022 Bolt!
The purchase of an EV could even qualify you for some state tax incentives. Charging your vehicle is as simple as plugging in your smartphone, and with 266 lb-ft of torque, the Earth-friendly and efficient power is there for you when you need it most!
