Hybrid vehicles have been around for several years, but it wasn’t until recently that fully electric vehicles have begun to take the world by storm. Chevrolet is trailblazing this new world of automobiles by releasing not only a small and compact electric vehicle sedan, but with the all-new 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV, Chevrolet has entered the world of fully electric SUVs. The automotive world will never be the same again. After all, it’s one thing to turn your work commuter car into an electric-powered vehicle, but it’s quite another to completely transform a family-friendly SUV into a 100% electric wonder.
If you’re looking to save money on gasoline while also making a positive impact on the environment, then it’s high time you looked into one of Chevrolet’s electric vehicles. And if you’re looking to fill your vehicle with several people without making them feel squished and crowded, then the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is absolutely the vehicle for you. Not only does the Bolt EUV run off of nothing but electricity, it does so without sacrificing comfort and sophistication. When you drive away in the Chevy Bolt EUV, prepare to experience a whole new world of automotive experiences.
With a range of 250 miles on one charge, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is going to get you wherever you need to go. Many major cities offer drivers of electric vehicles and hybrids the convenience of public charging stations where you can go to easily and quickly charge your EUV while you’re out and about. However, with an estimated 250-mile range, the odds of you needing to spend your afternoons at a public charging station are pretty low.
Chevrolet’s 2022 Bolt EUV has the option of being charged with a regular, every 120-volt household outlet or with an upgraded 240-volt outlet. While the 240-volt outlet allows you to charge your Bolt EUV a lot quicker than the 120-volt outlet, the option of charging with the 120-volt outlet allows you to charge your electric SUV without having to mess with any complicated upgrades or connection changes. That being said; however, it’s not that difficult to upgrade your garage outlets to a 240-volt outlet, especially when you consider the fact that Chevrolet is planning to cover the installation of level 2 charging capability, or 240-volt outlets, for eligible customers. For even faster charging, opt for the DC Fast Charge capability, and you will have up to 95 miles of range in just 30 minutes.
The new 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV comes with some pretty cool features. One of the coolest features is what’s known as Super Cruise. Super Cruise is basically the ability to allow your vehicle to drive itself. Not really, you’ll still be behind the wheel, but in a lot of ways, this technology will allow for some seamless and automated driving experiences.
When you drive your Bolt EUV on compatible roads, of which there are more than 200 thousand miles worth in North America, your vehicle will use an advanced mapping technology known as LiDAR. This LiDAR technology gives your vehicle a picture-perfect idea of the road, and then your Bolt EUV will be able to follow along the path while you, the driver, sit back and relax. Experience hands-free driving at its finest with this sophisticated technology. There is even a map on the Chevrolet website that shows you exactly where the compatible roads are so you can determine if there are any close to you.
Another feature that is unique to the Chevy Bolt EUV is the One Pedal Driving. Rather than using your brakes to slow down, merely lifting your foot off of the accelerator pedal will allow you to control the acceleration and deceleration of your vehicle. This is effortless driving at its finest, and before long, you will wonder how you ever did without this technology. Don’t worry, though: the Chevy Bolt EUV still has a brake pedal for times when you really need to stop and quickly.
Your 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV also comes with a partnering smartphone app called Energy Assist. This app allows you to easily calculate the most efficient route to your desired destination so you can save the most energy and the most time. This software allows you to stretch your 250-mile radius as far as humanly possible, with no extra effort on your part. Plus, you can use this app to find charging stations along your route.
Finally, we’ve got the Regen on Demand feature. The Regen on Demand allows you to restore energy to your vehicle with the simple toggle of a paddle. This feature is perfect for those times when you need a little extra power or oomph. What this feature does is store the energy you use when braking or decelerating, using the One Pedal Driving and stores it until you pull the paddle. This gives you just a little extra energy to stretch your range.
As of now, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is slated to have 3 trim options. These options will ensure you get exactly the vehicle you want. Just choose the trim that best fits your price range and lifestyle.
Starting With the Basics: The LT
First up is the lowest Bolt EUV trim level, the LT. The Chevy Bolt EUV LT starts at a price point of $33,995, making this the most affordable EUV in the lineup. It comes with Chevy Safety Assist, which is Chevy’s premier safety system. Chevy Safety Assist comes with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Following Distance Indicator, and IntelliBeam Auto High Beam Assist.
The Bolt EUV LT also comes with a wireless charging station so you can wirelessly charge your device while you’re out and about. This trim level is DC Fast Charging capable and comes with a Dual Level Charge Cord for your charging convenience. You will also get wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto capabilities, so your smart device can connect to your vehicle and provide you with hands-free connectivity no matter where you are.
The next trim in the Chevy Bolt EUV lineup is the Premier. The Chevy Bolt EUV Premier starts at $38,495, landing it comfortably in the middle as far as the EUV price point goes. Drivers of the Chevy Bolt EUV Premier will experience a little bit of an upgrade with premium leather-appointed seats that are all the rage. The Premier also comes with Adaptive Cruise Control, which makes driving on long road trips incredibly easy and a whole lot more comfortable than when using traditional cruise control.
This mid-level trim comes with a Rear Camera Mirror which makes driving and backing an even safer adventure. HD Surround Vision keeps you attuned to everything that’s going on around your vehicle at all times. The Premier trim level even has the option of the Super Cruise driver assistance feature, which gives you a hands-free driving experience that is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.
Finally, we have the highest trim level, the Launch Edition. The Chevy Bolt EUV Launch Edition will start at an MSRP of $43,495, making it the most premium trim level, and you’re going to love what this trim comes with. It’s definitely unlike any of the previous trims.
First of all, you can expect some unique and iconic wheels and badging to come with the Launch Edition trim. Everybody is going to know that you opted for the most sophisticated Bolt EUV driving experience available from the first run of the vehicle, and you’ll be proud to drive a vehicle with these unique markings. Rather than having to pay extra for the Super Cruise driver assistance feature, all Launch Edition trims will automatically come with this sophisticated technology.
The Bolt EUV Launch Edition also comes with an illuminated charging port which adds a certain modern and futuristic aura. Not only is this illuminated charging port beautiful and state of the art, but it’s also highly convenient when you need to charge your vehicle in the dark or see from far away. The Launch Edition of the Chevy Bolt EUV also comes with a panoramic sunroof that takes your driving experience to a whole other level.
