These two teaser images, which show the the silhouettes of the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV from the side, were first shown this week during the GM Fleet Solutions Summit, which was held virtually. The automaker did not provide much information on either vehicle, though it did say the images provide a “sneak peak,” at the upcoming new EVs before they enter production in the summer of 2021.
The refreshed Chevrolet Bolt EV is expected to feature revised exterior styling and an updated interior, along with new available technology.
The Chevrolet Bolt EUV (EUV is an acronym for ‘Electric Utility Vehicle’ by the way), meanwhile, is an all-new offering that will take all the best parts about the Chevrolet Bolt EV and wrap them up in a larger package. While Chevy did refer to the Bolt EV as a crossover when it debuted, the Bolt EUV is expected to have more ground clearance than the regular Bolt EV. That said, the crossover will likely be front-wheel-drive only – similar to rival offerings like the Hyundai Kona EV and Kia Niro EV.
Both the refreshed Bolt EV and the Bolt EUV will ride on GM’s BEV2 electric vehicle platform. The vehicles will also be built alongside one another at the automaker’s Lake Orion Assembly plant in Michigan.
The Chevrolet Bolt EUV will also be the first Chevrolet vehicle to feature GM’s hands-free Super Cruise semi-autonomous system. Super Cruise, which is only offered in certain Cadillac products for the time being, enables hands-free, semi-autonomous driving functionality on over 200,000 miles of divided highways in the United States and Canada. Super Cruise uses LiDAR map data, high-precision GPS and a network of camera and radar sensors to work.
Expect both the refreshed Bolt EV and the all-new Bolt EUV to land for the 2022 model year.
