General Motors is gearing up to launch a host of new all-electric vehicle offerings, including the refreshed Chevy Bolt EV and its larger sibling – the all-new Chevy Bolt EUV. While there are a variety of similarities between these two vehicles, there are several exterior differences worth pointing out as well, as seen in the following brief video.
Before we start picking apart the aesthetic differences between these two electric vehicles, let’s quickly go over what makes them similar. For starters, both the refreshed Chevy Bolt EV and the all-new Chevy Bolt EUV roll GM’s second-generation Battery Electric Vehicle architecture, also known as the GM BEVII platform. Both vehicles are also believed to equip the same all-electric powertrain, including a 66-kWh lithium-ion battery and juicing an electric motor good for 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, plus 259 miles between plugs. Finally, both vehicles will go into production in the summer of 2021 at General Motors’ Lake Orion Assembly plant in Michigan.
So then – what makes the refreshed Chevy Bolt EV and the all-new Chevy Bolt EUV different? To begin with, size and styling: the upcoming Chevy Bolt EUV will be physically larger than the Bolt EV crossover-like hatch, gaining several inches in length.
The EUV will also feature a more upright nose, a taller, flatter window line, and a squared-off rear section. The roofline of the EUV will also be flatter and longer, and the rear end will come with well-defined creases around the rear fenders. Interestingly, the refreshed Bolt EV is shown without roof rails in the teaser, making us wonder whether it will delete the feature.
