Excitement, stability, and fun best describe the all-electric 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV. The larger sub-compact SUV iteration of the Chevy Bolt EV provides drivers and passengers with more room, larger interior space, and some of the most advanced technology available on the market. With new fast charging and more charging stations available across North America, it's now easier than ever to spend more time on the road than at the charge station.
The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV represents a new generation of electric vehicles. One that not only accommodates the expectations of a gasoline-free automobile but also one that is designed to fit the needs of a small family, the hustle and bustle of everyday urban life, and the desires of drivers who want to be on the cutting edge of eco-friendly transportation. With a bigger body and the inclusion of the innovative Super Cruise, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is changing the game for what you can expect from an electric vehicle, and all at an affordable price.
The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is at the forefront of pushing all-electric vehicles to the next level. Powered by 288 lithium-ion battery cells on a battery pack tucked neatly underneath the vehicle, the Bolt EUV affords occupants maximum amounts of interior volume to move around in without worrying about the battery obstructing the passenger or cargo space. The battery pack provides up to 65 kilowatts of power an hour, and thanks to the new active thermal management system for induced cooling, the battery is guaranteed to perform for at least eight years or up to 100,000 miles with warranty coverage on all the battery-related components.
The pack itself powers a single electric motor that operates on a permanent magnetic drive, which utilizes variable frequencies to control the speed output generated by magnets embedded onto the rotor. The current from the battery is moved through the conductor to create a magnetic field based on the voltage, which in turn gives the electric motor the power to create propulsion through the single-speed transmission.
The Chevy Bolt EUV is a front-wheel drive electric vehicle with a 7.05:1 final drive ratio that produces up to 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. And thanks to the modest curb weight of 3,679 pounds, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is capable of achieving up to an estimated 250 miles of travel on a single, full charge. This easily makes the Chevy Bolt EUV one of the best performing all-electric vehicles within the sub-compact SUV category.
Many of the Bolt EUV's functions are built on top of the latest automotive technology, enabling it to achieve the remarkable feat of being able to travel up to 250 miles on a fully charged battery. Additionally, the battery energy is conserved based on regenerative properties applied via the braking system, also known as one-pedal driving. This is achieved with the Regen on Demand paddle on the steering wheel, where the kinetic energy built up from the vehicle slowing down is turned into reserved energy for the battery.
With two driving modes available that can alter the way regenerative braking is performed, drivers have options in how the energy is stored. In the Low Mode, holding down the Regen on Demand paddle on the steering wheel will deliver up to 70 kilowatts of regenerative power, while holding down the Regen on Demand paddle while in Drive Mode will deliver up to 65 kilowatts of regenerative power.
In Low Mode, regenerative braking can be used in conjunction with one-pedal driving, where the driver only has to hold down the accelerator to propel the vehicle forward and use the Regen on Demand paddle along with releasing the accelerator to bring the vehicle to a halt. This technology not only helps with reserving battery power during travels, but it also helps with preserving the quality of the brakes and reduces the amount of particulate matter from friction-based brake pads.
Beyond the regenerative braking capabilities, traditional charging has been improved for the 2022 Bolt EUV. The all-new Dual Level Charge Cord makes it easy to plug-in the Bolt EUV at home and get a full charge in up to 7 hours with the 240-volt charging station. Alternatively, you can gain up to 4 miles of travel with just an hour of charging using a 120-volt station. Best of all is the now standard incorporation of DC fast charging, which enables electric vehicles like the 2022 Bolt EUV to charge up quickly in near record time, such as enabling drivers to gain up to 95 miles worth of travel within just 30 minutes of charge time. And with the Level 2 charging speed, the Bolt EUV is capable of 11 kilowatts an hour charging with ease and efficiency.
Fast charging will also be easier than ever before, with General Motors working with EVgo to produce more than 2,700 fast-charging stations across the country by 2025. So you will be able to quickly put travel miles on the Bolt EUV in just a matter of minutes. Already there are more than 80,000 charging stations available across North America, which can be quickly navigated to using the myChevrolet app. This EV is here to make use of every bit of energy it produces and makes charging anywhere a breeze.
Advancements in both software and hardware technology are at the core of the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV. Working together, the software helps the hardware achieve optimal performance and makes it easy for drivers to access vehicle health, charging information, and safety features. Thanks to the infotainment features and companion apps, you can comfortably use the navigation tools to find routes that best conserve the Bolt EUV's battery charge. With the availability of wireless charging and multiple USB ports, you can always stay connected with your smart devices such as phones and tablets.
4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot compatibility comes standard along with the Chevrolet Infotainment System that contains a 10.2-inch diagonal color touchscreen. You can readily access vehicle-related apps, media streaming, and smart device connectivity right from the center dashboard touchscreen. This also includes available access to SiriusXM Satellite Radio, as well as Bluetooth functionality with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technologies.
On the safety side, a number of driver-assist features come standard, including the very popular Teen Driver mode and the Chevy Safety Assist suite. This includes highly rated safety features such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, IntelliBeam Auto High Beam Assist, Front Pedestrian Braking, and the Following Distance Indicator. Various assists are also made possible thanks to HD rear vision cameras and the HD Surround Vision technology, which features cameras and sensors around the vehicle that allows for systems such as the Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The HD cameras are also useful for the Adaptive Cruise Control and the all-new Super Cruise functionality. Finally available on a Chevy model, Super Cruise is the new semi-autonomous driving software that uses LiDAR map data and cameras in real-time to offer a hands-free driving experience on more than 200,000 miles of compatible roads. Just wait for the bar on your steering wheel to turn green, activate Super Cruise, and let your vehicle handle driving for a little while; just make sure you still keep your eyes on the road. The Bolt EUV isn't just providing new tech; it's innovating the entire driving experience.
With a 105.3-inch wheelbase supported by independent MacPherson suspension and a sleek exterior featuring visually delectable lines and an unmistakably modern fascia, the 2022 Bolt EUV isn't just about impressing with its highly appealing exterior. The interior is where the vehicle really shines, with a flat-bottom steering wheel that makes it convenient to view the all-digital instrument cluster, while infotainment controls and the Regen on Demand paddle keep things simple and handy to control the vehicle and its media information technology without ever having to take your eyes off the road. And with incorporated Alexa voice-activated controls, you can stay in command of the road at all times without the need to remove your hands from the wheel.
The all-new seating for up to 5 passengers is geometrically designed for maximum comfort thanks to a roomy cabin space that provides up to 96.5-cubic feet of passenger volume. This means you have up to 40-inches of headroom, 44.3-inches of legroom, and 51.4-inches of hip room in the front, with 37.8-inches of headroom, 39.1-inches of legroom, and 50.2-inches of hip room in the rear.
