2022 Chevy Bolt EUV and refreshed Chevy Bolt EV have just debuted.
GM sent teaser clips to their mailing list recently. I have not seen anything other than teasers so far.
Video seems to be blocked, here is the link from Motor 1 with text as well:
EUV gets sunroof, Nav, optional Super Cruise, and a dual voltage portable EVSE (optional on Bolt). Also reduced range (same battery pack as Bolt) @ 250 miles compared to Bolt's 259 miles due to slightly heavier weight.
Here is an additional link to GM website with EUV and Bolt details:
The #BoltEUV is what the @ChevyElectric #BoltEV was supposed to be; not a significant change in size, was expecting to be compatible with the Honda CR-V size wise; the Bolt EUV will canibalize and probably kill the smaller Bolt EV. BTW, the range is also disappointing.

It’s crazy they just don’t make it look like a regular car. They would attract a far larger buyer group.

For those of us who love the Bolt EV, the super cruise on the EUV is the most interesting. The rest is not disappointing, not super exciting, and not unexpected. The drop in range for the EUV is not too bad, given the added size, which I suspect is just right for those of us who might have thought the Bolt EV was a bit too small inside, although actually quite adequate for most jobs. I have never been a big fan of sunroofs, so that is not particularly attractive for me. The charging facilities are not that enticing as I bought all the right accessories for lots of charging options for my 2017 Bolt EV, and I will just keep them for the new vehicle. I await the performance figures for the EUV, as I am sure the EV is probably the same. I don't see any information about towing yet. I will try and dig deeper to see if that is part of what the EUV can do. It it is, I am going straight for the EUV. I have to go through the pre-order stuff to find more details.....
I took a slightly deeper look at the site. I don't find anything about towing, or hitches, or performance yet. Apparently, you can reserve the "launch edition" of the EUV for $100. The money is refundable from your dealer if you change your mind. I reserved it just in case the EUV turns out to be more enticing than at first glance. Right now, only super cruise, automatic emergency braking, and a slightly larger size commends it. Hopefully, the dealer has more specs than can be found on the web right now.
More than $5,000 CAD off the price is nice but there appears to only be one trim now. Dont see a Premier on the Canadian site. I was hoping for a little more than what were getting (range, fog lights, cooled seats being my top 3). But I digress. Its something.
I was really excited when the Bolt EV came out but I was really disappointed when it didn’t have adaptive cruise control. I drive a Niro EV now and I don’t see much difference between the Bolt EUV and the Niro EV. To get me out of my Niro EV the Bolt EUV would have to have AWD and real towing capacity.

I think I heard that neither of those things will happen.
I think the refreshed Bolt EV looks fantastic. I’ve always liked smaller cars and if this Bolt were available last summer I would have picked it over my Kona. One thing I notice on the Bolt EV is that they removed the roof rails. I wonder if they will have a premier version with those? A much faster DC charging rate would make it a winner for sure.
Its all marketing. The EUV is really the Bolt EV but at a higher price to make it slightly bigger and include the Adaptive Cruise control, which we all wanted, emergency braking, finally, and a sunroof, etc., leaving the Bolt as the small car entry level EV. As the EUV seems to be only marginally bigger than the Bolt EV, its a Bolt EV really. We know its the same platform, battery, etc. So, the Bolt EUV IS a Bolt EV and so has adaptive cruise control etc. Manufacturers and their dealers don't change their spots just because they go electric.
The EUV also gets the portable dual 110V/220V charge cable, wireless charging for phones, LED DRLs, and possibly a couple other things that may have slipped my mind: all standard equipment. Optional on the Bolt EV.
*Edit to add: Oh, I believe the roof rails are standard on the EUV as well.
I was hoping for lots more so essentially they’re a big yawn. My attention is now on the mach-e. Sadly I have a pile of GM Card money available.
