Chevrolet presented the unprecedented Bolt EUV and the 2022 Bolt EV line. Both are part of the manufacturer’s strategy to launch 30 new electric models globally by 2025. Although the two launches have the same architecture, according to the manufacturer, no part of the exterior is shared between them.
Side by side, the Chevrolet Bolt EUV is 15.24 cm longer, totaling a length of 4.306 m against 4.145 m of the Bolt EV. Still talking about measurements, the wheelbase is 2,675 m in the Bolt EUV and 2,600 in the Bolt EV. The trunk of the Bolt EUV accommodates up to 462 liters or 1,611 liters after folding the rear seat – in the Bolt EV, there are 470 and 1,614 liters, in order.
The cabin provides multimedia with a 10.2″ touch screen, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay connectivity, and 4G Wi-Fi “native.” And users can access the Spotify, The Weather Channel, and Alexa apps. The latter makes it possible to carry out voice commands to play music, obtain instructions, make calls, listen to audiobooks and even control the smart home. The induction smartphone charger is also present. A novelty is the keys to select the gear position and the new system button for driving using only one pedal.
Those traveling in the Bolt EUV will find 7.62 cm more legroom and the Chevrolet electric model features ventilated and heated seats (also available in the rear seat). Both cars use 17 ″ wheels fitted with Michelin tires measuring 215/50 R17.
Chevrolet Bolt EUV offers Super Cruise, a driver assistance technology for roads. The Driver Attention System employs a small camera at the top of the steering column. It works with infrared lights to determine where the driver is looking whenever the Super Cruise is in operation.
If the driver is inattentive, a lightbar located on the steering wheel will ask him to return his eyes to the road. If there is no reaction, the vehicle will emit visual/audible alerts to notify the driver. The Super Cruise is found in the Chevrolet Bolt EV Premier option.
The Chevy Safety Assist is standard equipment on both the Bolt EUV and Bolt EV. And it includes advanced driver assistance technologies such as automatic emergency braking, front collision alert, unintended lane departure assistance, and safety distance indicator. There is also reverse traffic fin and an adaptive speed controller in both cars, for example.
