Each year, hybrid and electric vehicles become more and more popular. That’s why auto manufacturers are dedicating more of their lineups to this type of technology. Chevrolet is currently working on an upgraded version of the Bolt EV and an all-new Bolt EUV to expand its electric vehicle offerings. Both models will make their debuts for the 2022 model year and will go into production next summer.
Chevrolet has not released much information about these new electric vehicles; however, we do know that the Bolt EUV, which stands for “electric utility vehicle”, will be about five inches longer than the standard Bolt EV. This will give it more space for your family and all your gear. The Bolt EUV will also have more SUV-like styling. It’s also possible that the Bolt EUV will offer a roof rack.
Another exciting addition to the Bolt EUV will be the availability of Super Cruise. This will be the first GM model outside of the Cadillac brand to offer this advanced hands-free driving technology.
As for the Bolt EV, it’s getting some significant updates for 2022. These updates will include new gear selector buttons, adaptive cruise control, more comfortable seats, a new infotainment system, and an improved dashboard. For a chance to test drive the current Chevy Bolt EV, pay us a visit at Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC Cadillac in Ruston, Louisiana, today.
The Chevy Bolt has already impressed drivers and critics
worldwide with its amazing range, but the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV range has
reached new heights — or, distances.
Increasing by 21 miles over the outgoing Bolt model, the
2020 Bolt EV will achieve up to 259 miles of range on a single electric
charge.* If any drivers considering the switch to an all-electric car had range
anxiety before, this should certainly quell any concerns.
“The Bolt EV set the benchmark for long-range, affordable electric vehicles, and we’re excited to raise the bar by offering nearly 10 percent more EPA-estimated range for the 2020 model year,” commented Tim Grewe, director of Global Battery Cell Engineering and Strategy. “At Chevrolet we’re constantly listening to customer feedback and we heard the desire for more range.”
The 21-mile improvement was a genius innovation. The
company’s battery-engineering team didn’t need to change the physical battery
pack or the way that pack was integrated into the Bolt EV’s body structure.
Instead, the team was able to manipulate the battery’s cell chemistry slightly.
Even the small tweaks improved the energy of the cell electrodes, enabling the
