2022 Chevy Bolt EUV: “Fantastic: So Much More Than Just a Halo For Tree Huggers”
David Murray of Inside Evs is one of the leading voices in the world of electric cars. Over the past week, he wrote about his family’s experience trading in their 2019 Chevy Bolt EV for the 2022 Bolt EUV.
The second-generation Bolt EUV has made massive improvements in technology and user-friendliness. It is also faster, goes further, enjoys better fuel economy, and is available for a lesser cost. The Bolt EV was not quite capable and versatile enough to rank as a mass-market vehicle, and that is where the newer model shines: the EUV’s style is much more attractive to the everyday consumer. The rear seats and cargo area both offer more room, and the range weighs in at 247 miles.
The interior is better-equipped with power and ventilated seats, adaptive cruise control, wireless Apple CarPlay, auto-braking, wireless phone charging, and more. Factoring in the cost of fuel and maintenance for the average American driver can easily sway anyone in the market for a new vehicle toward the Bolt EUV.
What do all of us on staff here at Jim Butler Chevy of St. Louis think? We have decided the new EUV makes a strong case as an American family vehicle, as families will not have to worry about range, comfort, speed, or performance. Under the hood is a 200-hp electric motor that is powered by a 65.0 kWh battery pack to deliver up to 250 miles of driving range per charge. We feel that the Bolt EUV will be right in the thick of the competition against other electric cars, such as the Hyundai Kona Electric, Ford Mustang Mach-E, and the Tesla Model Y.
The Bolt EUV’s futuristic styling and on-board semi-autonomous driving system will be huge draws for consumers along with the sunroof, light-up charge port, and unique wheel design. The DC fast charging option is going to be the most attractive for anyone on a particularly busy schedule, which efficiently provides up to 95 miles of range in a mere half-hour. The Bolt EUV also has the ability to communicate with the driver with a smartphone app, notifying you of charging alerts and nearby charging locations to stay fully juiced.
