The Chevrolet brand has expanded its electric vehicle portfolio with the introduction of the all new, all- electric 2022 Bolt EUV, alongside the redesigned 2022 Bolt EV.
“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,” said Steve Hill, vice president of Chevrolet. “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.”
Along with broadening the brand’s electric vehicle lineup, the Bolt EUV will also be the first Chevrolet vehicle to offer Super Cruise, the industry’s first true hands-free driver assistance system for enabled roads.
Chevrolet is also making charging more convenient with a new Dual Level Charge Cord, which, for many customers, will eliminate the need to purchase a separate charger for their home. It has a changeable plug that allows the customer to plug into a standard 120-volt three-prong outlet for Level 1 charging and a 240-volt outlet for Level 2 charging up to 7.2 kilowatts.
The new Dual Level Charge Cord is standard with Bolt EUV and is available for Bolt EV. For maximum Level 2 charging speed, both vehicles are now capable of 11 kW Level 2 charging, but separate charging equipment (not included) is required.
Additionally, Chevrolet will cover standard installation of Level 2 charging capability for eligible customers who purchase or lease a 2022 Bolt EUV or Bolt EV. In collaboration with Qmerit, the offer gives customers access to faster charging at home and with the new available Dual Level Charge Cord, a standalone charging station is not required.
When it comes to on-the-go public charging, General Motors is providing customers with convenient and expanded access. GM and EVgo, the nation’s largest public fast-charging network, are collaborating to triple the number of fast chargers, with the addition of more than 2,700 chargers around the country by the end of 2025.
Chevrolet customers also have location access to more than 80,000 chargers in North America through the Energy feature within their myChevrolet app. It enables owners to plan and manage their routes more efficiently, locate available charging stations along their route, receive real-time alerts about range and easily pay for public charging through the click-to-charge feature.
“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,” added Hill.
