2023 Chevy Bolt EUV – The new Chevy Bolt EUV looks very similar to the Bolt EV hatchback. These twins are paternal and fraternal. Some of the differences that make the chevy compact EV different are quite significant. We expect that Chevy 2023 will still be the same design as the previous model, with very few changes. Both Bolts share the same platform and the same electric motor train. Although their exteriors are almost identical, Chevy claims that the bolts have no sheet metal in common.
The EUV is much sleeker than Bolt’s previous Bolt. It features LED lights at the front that double as turn signals and standard LED headlights. Bolt’s hatch has a Bowtie badge flanked by sleek taillights. However, this serves only as a light on. The actual brake lights and blindfolds are located below the hatch opening.
2023 Chevy Bolt EUV Specs
The EUV is 6.2ins longer than the Bolt EV and has a wheelbase that is 3.9ins longer. Although the EUV is 0.2 inches taller than the Bolt and 0.2 inches wider, it doesn’t make any real difference. Only the EUV roof’s side rail circuit is the other distinctive feature. Both models use 17-inch wheels. The main benefit of a longer wheelbase is the increased legroom. The EUV offers riders an extra 3.1 inches of legroom in the back seats, and thanks to the flat floor of EV architecture, plenty of space to lie down. Bolt’s upright design means that there is plenty of headroom, but that has never been an issue in that car. Even with the narrower stance, you will find yourself occasionally wiping elbows and shoulders with passengers, especially if there are heavier carriages.
Bolt EUVs come with the same powertrain, a 200 horsepower electric motor, and front-wheel driving. All-wheel drive is not an option. The instantaneous power distribution associated with the electric motor should allow for good acceleration. Regenerative brake allows you to steer with one pedal, while the Bolt EUV takes back energy. Although the Bolt EUV’s acceleration is not the fastest, it can reach 60 mph in just 7.0 seconds. Even on damaged sidewalks, the handling is good, but not thrilling. This compact powertrain provides cubic footage for passengers and cargo comparable to the Bolt EUV Trailblazer, but in a smaller body than the Trax. The Blazer is more expensive than the Blazer and Bolt buyers don’t have all-wheel drive. Salespeople will need to come up with new arguments about convenience, care, and charging at home. If they plan to move the BOLT EUVs.
Battery Life, Charging, Range
Chevrolet estimates that the Bolt EUVs will travel 250 miles on a single charge. This figure is comparable to most electric SUVs. However, the Model Y from Tesla has a bigger battery pack and offers a 326-mile range. Bolt EUV can charge at standard 120-volt household outlets, but buyers may want to look into a 240-volt connection to speed up home charging. Chevy claims that the SUV can also fast charge DC and provide up to 95 miles of range in 30 minutes.
Bolt EUV Cab looks elegant and well-trimmed. All models come standard with flat-bottom steering wheels, push-button gear selectors, and mischievous geometric patterns in the upholstery. Bolt EUV is taller, wider, and longer than regular Bolt hatchbacks. The rear seats have more space than normal, with legroom increasing by over three inches. While EUV is slightly longer than regular Bolt hatchbacks, it offers more cargo space. However, most drivers will still have enough room for groceries and luggage. A Premier trim with a 2-color interior makes a great first impression. It has a luxurious appearance thanks to the contrast of yellow stitching and white seats.
The dashboard and doors have soft-touch stitching materials that feel and look great. The ambient lighting is excellent under the accent lines at each door and on the dashboard. In a car as small as this, the center screen is as large as practical. Although the Bolt EUV is larger than either, it has a smaller cargo capacity. When the rear seat is upright, the EUV holds 16.3 cubic feet of cargo space. If folded down, it can hold 56.9 cubic yards. Bolt EV has 16.6 cubic feet and Bolt EV has 57.0 cubic feet. This is a small difference. Bolt still has more luggage space than the Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia Niro Electric, and Nissan Leaf. The Bolt EV 2023 and EUV 2023 will have nice interior updates. We are particularly pleased with the new dashboard design and the use of better materials throughout. The new console features a push-button electronic shifter and more comfortable seats.
Connectivity and Infotainment
Both a large 10.2-inch digital gauge display and a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen are standard features. There are many connectivity options available including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, Wi-Fi hotspots, and integrated WiFi hotspots. Bolt EUV can communicate with the driver via the smartphone app. This can be used to send charging alerts to nearby charging networks.
From the driver’s seat, an extra 6.3 inches and 90 lbs relative to the junior Bolt are unknown. The floor was uneven, and the front tires (Michelin Energy Saver S in size 215/50R17) were not as grippy, particularly when turning. The car travels at speeds that seem faster than the recommended time of 6.5 seconds 0-60. One-pedal driving mode is activated by pressing a button. This mode provides sufficient deceleration for normal driving conditions. However, most people will not appreciate the 214 percent greater retardation in Normal mode. Too little? To increase the regen paddle’s value by more than 300 percent, drag it to the left side.
Even in Sport mode, the steering is as responsive as ever. However, the simple front strut/torsion beam rear suspension responds with confidence and reasonable vigor. Bolt’s smooth handling and toned body feel are undoubtedly due to the rigidity and mass of the low-mounted battery. This price range seems to be well-suited for the quality of driving: strong, flexible, but not too flashy. Is Will moving the motor backward improve the Bolt’s dynamics? Definitely. The supercruise, which was first introduced on the Cadillac CT6 sedan (now defunct), is a hands-free technology that allows for driver assistance. Bolt EUV is the first Chevrolet vehicle to offer a Super Cruise. It can be used on more than 200,000 miles of highway in the United States and Canada. The Super Cruise Bolt EUV version of the Super Cruise Bolt won’t change lanes as the new Cadillac Escalade. But it is one technology that separates the Bolt EUV from other electric cars. Tesla’s Autopilot was the closest, although it was quite a bit more expensive than its name suggests.
Super Cruise at Bolt EUV is great fun. To activate adaptive cruise control, simply tap the steering wheel icon and GM technology will take the steering, braking, and throttle inputs. Sensors are attached to the steering column to make sure you pay attention. The Super Cruise is very compatible with the bolt EUV’s smooth electric motor train. It can easily apply more torque to accelerate and use the available regeneration to slow down. The Bolt EUV also has a paddle located on the left-hand side of the steering wheel. This paddle acts as an on-demand regen switch to braking. You can also switch on or off a one-pedal driving mode by using the buttons in the center console. A Bolt EUV’s longer wheelbases have a great advantage: it offers a better ride quality than standard hatches. The wobble-bobby feeling many city-bound cars feel when they are short-haul or have to travel over the highway expansion connection has been reduced by having more space between the wheels. EUV is a lot more fun than driving in the traffic jams of Los Angeles. Bolt will not move as fast on twisting roads if there isn’t light steering or narrow tracks. But that’s not why people bought this stuff.
The New Bolt EUV uses the same electric powertrain that the Bolt EV has, and the same powertrain as the older model. The electric motor at the front axle is powered by a 65-kilowatt hour battery, which produces a total output power of 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet. Chevy doesn’t offer dual-motor, all-wheel-drive configurations. You will need to get into a Ford Mustang Mach-E or Tesla Model 3 or Model Y. Bolt EUVs come with two-level charging cables. The cable has a replaceable connector and can be connected to either a 120 volt Level 1 or Level 2 charger. It is capable of charging up to 7.2 kW. This cable can be purchased at the Base Bolt E-V. Chevy claims that it takes 7 hours to fully charge the Level 2 charger. The Bolts can also charge dc quickly and the Bolt EUV can consume 95 miles of electricity in 30 minutes. Concerning the critical range question: The Bolt EV/EUV is still competitive with compact electric hatchbacks. The smaller EV will return a range between 259 and 250 miles on a full battery charge. However, the larger EUV can still provide a respectable range of 250 miles. These numbers are comparable to the 258-mile range of the Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia Niro E-EV (239 miles), and 226-mile range of the Nissan Leaf Plus (226).
Although official EPA results will not be available until a later launch this summer, GM’s internal testing indicates that it is only 250 miles away. 75 miles were eliminated from the range by the aggressive investigation of the acceleration limit or gliding at 75 MPH (the speed that causes a warning yellow ring to the speedometer). This was done over a 63-mile test ride. Calculating the distance between the start and the end screens can show that the battery is worth about 175 miles. Bolt’s most well-executed feature is the reconfigurable cluster of instruments. An infotainment screen that can be set up to give the driver all the information they need to maximize range or to better understand the effects of driving habits and additional accessories on the range can be configured.
The standard charging cable included with all 2022 Bolts comes with a twist. It can be plugged into either a standard 110-volt outlet or a NEMA14-50 outlet. These outlets are usually used to power an electric stove, oven, or other appliance. If you don’t have one, the Chevy will pay for the installation. The cable must produce a maximum of 7.2 kW. To do this, the home system should be capable of supporting an 8-gauge and 40-amp fuse. The Bolt EV2022and EUV onboard charger can now receive 11.5 kW of incoming AC energy. So homeowners who can handle 6-gauge cables with a 50-amp fuse may wish to get a Level 2 charger. A Chevy-supplied, 240-volt charger will charge the Bolts for full charging in 7 hours. The Bolts also receive DC fast charging which promises 95-100 miles on a battery that lasts less than half an hour. The dashboard lights (and the Launch Edition charger) blink periodically to keep you updated on charging progress. A blink means 0-25 percent charging. Two blinks indicate 25-50 percent. Three blinks mean 25-50 percent. And so on until the indicator goes out to show 100 percent.
2022 Chevy Bolt EUV Price & Release date
Bolt EUV 2022 is priced at $33,395 with the destination. Tax credits are available at $4,220 less than Bolt EV 2021. The EUV Launch Edition with the most luxurious and full-loaded features (Super Cruise, sunroof, and special wheels) cost $43,495. The Bolt EUV is a small EV that’s reasonably priced, no matter how you slice it. The 2022 Bolt EV regular starts at $31,995 (includes goals but not including available incentives). Although it’s a $2,000 savings, the Bolt EV is smaller and more difficult to drive, has limited space for passengers, and doesn’t come with a dual charging cable. It also locks you out from GM’s amazing Super Cruise technology. Chevy claims there is room in the portfolio for two bolts to coexist. However, I don’t understand why you’ll get an even smaller version. With its superior technology and low price, the new EUV is an improved version of the Bolt. It makes electricity very appealing.
