GM has unveiled its 2022 Chevy Bolt, including a larger EUV crossover model.
The Chevy Bolt is one of the most popular all-electric vehicles that doesn’t carry the Tesla badge. Thanks to GM’s lineage, the Bolt is often seen as a more mainstream alternative to Tesla, and has the price point to match.
GM is building on that success with the 2022 Bolt, adding a larger crossover variant alongside the familiar hatchback Bolt EV. The EV model maintains the 259-mile range it’s had for the last couple of years, while the EUV comes in at 250 miles. The starting price for the Bolt EUV is $33,995, while the Bolt EV starts at $31,995.
“We’ve lowered Bolt EV’s base price by more than $5,000 from the 2021 model, proving our commitment to make EVs attainable for everyone,” said Steve Hill, vice president of Chevrolet.
The new models are part of GM’s aggressive EV plans. The company has previously committed to phasing out fossil fuels in light duty vehicles by 2035, and plans to launch 30 EVs by 2025.
“We want to put everyone in an EV and the new Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV are crucial to doing so,” said GM President Mark Reuss. “Together, they enable mainstream customers to be part of our vison of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion.”
“The new Bolt EUV is the best of the Bolt EV packaged in an SUV-like vehicle with more technology and features, giving customers more choices and reasons to switch to electric,” added Hill. “This is an opportunity for Chevy to capitalize on the success we’ve built with the Bolt EV and bring new customers into the Chevy family.”
Providing consumers a choice between a hatchback and an SUV-style EUV is sure to be a winning combination with what is already one of the most popular EV platforms on the market.
