Oshawa, Ontario (February 14th, 2021) – Today, Chevrolet expanded its electric vehicle portfolio with the introduction of the new, all-electric 2022 Bolt EUV alongside the redesigned 2022 Bolt EV.

Distinguished by unique exterior designs, including an SUV-like proportion for the new Bolt EUV, each is propelled by the proven technology that helped make the Bolt EV the industry’s first affordable, long-range electric vehicle — and both are part of General Motors’ plan to launch 30 new EVs globally by 2025.

“We are committed to making EVs accessible for everyone and the new Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV are giving customers more choices and reasons to switch to electric,” said Scott Bell, president and managing director, GM Canada, “Canadian teams played an active role in the development and testing of the new Bolt EUV including Canadian Technical Centre engineers who worked on the Super Cruise1 system—a first for Chevrolet and the cold weather durability testing that was done at our Kapuskasing Proving Grounds in northern Ontario.”

The Bolt EV has led the charge in putting more drivers in electric vehicles. Since its market introduction in 2017, global sales have topped 100,000, with over 13,000 Bolt EV sales in Canada.

“The Chevrolet Bolt EV has been changing perceptions of electric vehicles and introducing new customers to the brand”, said Laura Pacey, brand director of Chevrolet. “In Canada, over 70 per cent of EV buyers are new to Chevrolet and with the introduction of the SUV-proportioned Bolt EUV with even more technology and features, Chevrolet is expanding our lineup so that more Canadians can get into an EV.” 

Along with broadening the brand’s electric vehicle lineup, the Bolt EUV Premier will also be the first Chevrolet vehicle to offer Super Cruise1, the industry’s first true hands-free driver assistance system for divided and compatible highways.

Chevrolet is also making charging more convenient with a new Dual Level Charge Cord, which comes standard on the Bolt EUV and is available on Bolt EV and could eliminate the need to purchase a separate level 2 charging unit for their home, for many customers. It has a changeable plug that allows the customer to plug into a standard 120-volt three-prong outlet for Level 1 charging and a 240-volt outlet for Level 2 charging up to 7.2 kW.

The new Dual Level Charge Cord comes standard with Bolt EUV and is available for Bolt EV. For maximum Level 2 charging speed, both vehicles are now capable of 11 kW Level 2 charging, but separate level 2 charging equipment (not included and requires professional installation) is required2.

Chevrolet customers also have location access to more than 10,000 charging outlets in Canada through the Energy Assist feature within their myChevrolet app14. It enables owners to plan and manage their routes more efficiently, locate available charging stations along their route, and receive real-time alerts about range.

The 2022 Bolt EV has a starting at MSRP of $38,1983 and the 2022 Bolt EUV has a starting at MSRP of $40,1983 before federal and available provincial incentives. Both will be available at dealerships this summer.

Design distinctions

The new Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV share an architecture, but their designs are unique. No exterior sheet metal parts are shared between the two vehicles and the EUV is approximately 6 inches longer.

“The new Bolt EUV and Bolt EV build on our bold and athletic Chevrolet SUV design themes, but are executed in a uniquely electric way,” said Phil Zak, executive design director, Chevrolet. “These two designs feature excellent proportions and tech-focused interiors, with more premium materials, which are key to our growing EV portfolio.”

Bolt EUV brings its own character to the growing small SUV segment with a modern, muscular design and a roomier interior and ample rear legroom. It also features a distinctive front-end with a sculpted grille and signature lighting, including standard LED headlamps and Chevrolet’s brand-specific high-eye daytime running lamps, which double as sequential turn-signal indicators.

Additional Chevrolet SUV styling cues on the EUV include a centre crease line that runs from the front fascia through the hood and seamless horizontal body lines that give a sense of motion even when the vehicle is standing still. Standard roof rails also reinforce the SUV aesthetic.

For Bolt EV, the design updates include a new, more upright front fascia and new front and rear lighting signatures — including the signature high-eye daytime running lights in front.

Inside, both vehicles feature new instrument panels, vehicle controls and seats, with a 10.2-inch-diagonal infotainment4 colour touchscreen and integrated climate controls common to both for clean, intuitive interfaces. The infotainment screen features real-time displays with more details available on the 8-inch-diagonal configurable colour gauge cluster.

There’s also a new, electronic gear shift design that uses pull toggles and push buttons to free up more interior space. For increased regenerative braking20, there’s even a new One-Pedal19 Driving button that keeps the system active between drive cycles.

The new interior includes a sporty, flat-bottom steering wheel that incorporates the regen-on-demand20 paddle and a black Chevrolet “bowtie” emblem. Additionally, the redesigned seats feature a triangular geometric pattern and contrasting colour stitching — premium design that gives a consistent and upscale atmosphere, while also complementing the new instrument panel and steering wheel designs.

When it comes to spaciousness, the all-new Bolt EUV expands on the Bolt EV’s already roomy cabin, with nearly three inches of additional rear legroom. Heated steering wheel, and heated front seats are standard. Ventilated front seats and heated rear outboard seats are available on select trims, along with a panoramic power sunroof for Bolt EUV.

Super Cruise1 and additional technologies

The 2022 Bolt EUV Premier is the first Chevrolet offered with Super Cruise1, the industry’s first true hands-free driver assistance system for divided and compatible highways. It can be used on more than 320,000 km (200,000 miles) of enabled highways in Canada and the U.S. 

Super Cruise1 employs many advanced technology features, including a Driver Attention System and precision LiDAR map data. The Driver Attention System uses a small camera located on the top of the steering column and works with infrared lights to determine where the driver is looking whenever Super Cruise1 is in operation.

If the Driver Attention System detects the driver’s gaze has turned away from the road ahead for too long, the steering wheel light bar will prompt the driver to return their attention to the road. If the system determines continued inattentiveness, it will use visible and audible alerts to notify the driver to take back control of the wheel. Super Cruise1 is available on Bolt EUV Premier.

Chevrolet Safety Assist5 is standard on both Bolt EUV and Bolt EV and includes safety and advanced driver assistance technologies, such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator, IntelliBeam and Front Pedestrian Braking. Additionally, Rear Cross Traffic Alert5, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Park Assist, and HD Rear Vision Camera5 also come standard on both models.

The Bolt EUV Premier includes even more driver assistance technology with standard, HD Surround Vision5 and Adaptive Cruise Control5.

Additional connectivity technologies offered in the Bolt EUV and Bolt EV include new wireless Apple® CarPlay6 and Android AutoTM7 phone projection capability, as well as wireless phone charging8 that is standard on Bolt EUV, and an available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot9.

Also, new In-Vehicle Apps10 allow users to browse a list of available apps such as Alexa Built-In11, Spotify®12, The Weather Channel® and many more, and install them on the infotainment system4. With Alexa, drivers can use simple voice commands, while keeping their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. Alexa can play music, get directions, place calls, listen to audiobooks, control your smart home13, access tens of thousands of Alexa skills and more – just ask, and Alexa will respond.

Proven propulsion system

Powering the Bolt EUV and Bolt EV is the proven battery technology that helped make the Bolt EV the industry’s first affordable, long-range electric vehicle.

An advanced 65 kWh lithium-ion battery pack helps the Bolt EV deliver an estimated range of up to 417 km (259 miles) on a full charge14. With the slightly larger Bolt EUV, an estimated range of up to 397 km (247 miles) on a full charge14.

The battery system features Chevrolet’s proven active thermal management system, which uses coolant to maintain the battery at its ideal operating temperature. This technology is a primary enabler of Chevrolet’s 8-year/160,000 km15 limited Electric Vehicle & Propulsion Battery Component Warranty coverage.

Additionally, standard DC Fast charging capability enables the Bolt EV to recharge up to 160 km (100 miles) of range in 30 minutes16 and 154 km (95 miles) for Bolt EUV16.

Customers can remotely view their current charging status and battery charge level, customize their charge settings and setup charge notifications via the myChevrolet mobile app®17. The Energy Assist feature18 within the myChevrolet mobile app®17 can help you plan road trips by locating charging stations — including real-time availability.

Additional propulsion system highlights include:

  • Single-motor drive unit that delivers 200 horsepower (150 kW) and 266 lb.-ft. (360 Nm) of near-instant torque
  • Regen-on-Demand20 that allows the driver to convert kinetic energy into energy stored within the battery for future use, with a simple pull on a steering wheel-mounted paddle
  • One-Pedal Driving19 lets the driver speed up, slow down and even come to a complete stop using only the accelerator pedal19.

The 2022 Bolt EUV and Bolt EV were introduced through a special, 90-second commercial titled “Magic is Electric” made in collaboration with Walt Disney World Resort. It can be viewed at https://www.chevrolet.ca/en/electric/updates
