Back in September, we posted spy shots of the 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV, highlighting the various exterior styling changes expected with the upcoming refresh. In those spy shots, we also got a glimpse of the EV’s interior space, which was covered up by copious black material, indicating that in addition to new exterior styling, the latest Bolt model year enhancement (MCE) will gain an interior makeover as well.
The current Chevrolet Bolt EV offers a clean interior design packed with a modern infotainment interface. However, the electric sub-compact’s materials, build quality, and seats have all been the subject of criticism, and this latest 2021 model year MCE will address those complaints with new seats, a new design, and other updates too.
While the camouflaged interior spotted in these spy shots fails to provide too many clues as to what the new cabin will look like, the surplus of camo used would seem to indicate a substantial change over the current model year.
It makes sense for Chevy to leverage the upcoming 2021 model year facelift for all these new changes, especially when considering that outside a little more range and new exterior colors, the Bolt has soldiered on basically unchanged since 2016. Indeed, with more competition in the all-electric segment, the Chevrolet Bolt EV could do with a significant update.
Further changes for the 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV include styling updates to help differentiate the sub-compact from the slightly larger Chevrolet Bolt EUV, Chevy’s upcoming all-electric compact “utility” vehicle.
The 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV is expected to arrive in the fall of the 2020 calendar year.
