General Motors first introduced the Chevy Bolt EV for the 2017 model year, offering customers a small, affordable, practical all-electric solution with plenty of room for passengers and cargo. Now, we’re getting a look at the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV as it plies the sun-soaked streets of Dubai.
This particular model is covered in Silver Ice Metallic paint, a classy choice that looks good day or night, regardless of the background. The Chevy Bolt EV slots into a niche segment in terms of body style, looking like both a crossover and a hatchback without falling squarely into either category.
Looking at the front end, we see the styling lines narrow towards a two-tiered grille design, with the headlamps underlined by signature lighting elements and the upper grille housing a gold Bow Tie badge. Black surrounds and trim continue the lines started in the headlamp surrounds, drawing rearwards towards the shoulder line and window line, showing off the Bolt EV badging above the fender.
Viewed from the side, we can see the Chevy Bolt EV’s five-spoke wheel design, with the rollers complementing the silver paint with a silver-finish of their own. The window line comes with a unique U-shape that rises as it moves rearwards, enhancing the crossover-like hatchback’s natural forward-leaning visual rake. Polished window trim above is matched with black trim below, while black cladding rings the side skirts and fender line.
Finally, in the rear, we find the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV’s hatch equipped with further black graphics, feeding into a floating roof design around the rearmost side pillar. Up top, a trailing-edge roof spoiler is done in silver.
As a reminder, the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV rides on the GM BEV2 platform, and is equipped with a 66-kWh lithium-ion battery pack good for 259 miles between plug-ins. The upcoming 2022 Chevy Bolt EV will bring a refresh with revisions to the front and rear styling, as well as a new interior.
