We’ve been patiently waiting for the Chevy Bolt EUV for quite a bit now, learning more and more details about the upcoming electric hatch-crossover along the way, while also bringing you the latest spy photos. Today, we have more details of the Chevy Bolt EUV interior via a set of new spy shots.
Overall, it would appear that the design of the upcoming EV’s cockpit will remain similar to that of the current Chevrolet Bolt EV, but with a few notable changes. For instance, the central display seen in these shots is definitely larger than the 10.2-inch LCD in the current Bolt EV.
Additionally, the Chevy Bolt EUV interior appears to feature a center stack that either removes or repositions the physical buttons for the audio and HVAC controls, as well as the hazard button. Doing so creates more space for the larger infotainment screen.
We can now see three buttons/knobs on the driver’s side edge of the display, and the hazard button on the front passenger-side of the display. The changes result in a more square-shaped space than the narrower, landscape orientation of the current screen on the current Bolt EV.
As GM Authority exclusively reported last August, we fully expect the upcoming Chevrolet Bolt EV refresh to also get these changes, along with new seats and various other updates.
Additionally, it’s worth noting that the Chevy Bolt EUV will have an entirely different cockpit from its corporate platform mate – Buick Velite 7, which will be a China-only affair. The interior of the Velite 7 features an upright, tablet-style display positioned at the top of the dash, while the Bolt EUV’s center display will be more smoothly integrated into the center stack. Both the Velite 7 and Chevy Bolt EUV will share the same version of the GM BEV2 platform, along with the general vehicle shape and electric drivetrains.
Set to launch sometime in 2021 as a 2022 model year vehicle, the Chevy Bolt EUV will be a slightly larger variant of the current Bolt EV, thanks to (roughly) an additional 12 inches of length. The Bolt EUV will also feature a slightly taller ride height and extra plastic cladding around the wheel wells and doors, giving it a more rugged, crossover-like appearance. Both the Bolt EUV and EV will be sold concurrently in the North American market.
