In a statement released Tuesday, Chevrolet revealed that it has teamed up with Walt Disney World to promote the next month’s unveiling of the new electric vehicles, which will go on sale this summer.
“Realizing the dream of an all-electric future will require more than just technology — it’s about having the desire, imagination and ingenuity to build a better tomorrow,” the release said. “As Chevrolet takes the next steps on its journey to a zero-emissions future, the brand is teaming up with Walt Disney World to reveal the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt EUV and Bolt EV and show how magic can take place when the imagination is electrified.”
Both the 2022 Bolt EUV and refreshed Bolt EV will ride on the latest GM Battery Electric Vehicle architecture, otherwise known as the GM BEVII platform, and are expected to utilize the same electric drive motor. A teaser image GM released of the Bolt EUV’s instrument panel revealed the electric crossover will have a maximum range of 277 miles (or 445 kilometers) which is 18 miles more than the 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV. The current Bolt EV is powered by a single electric motor mounted on the front axle, which produces 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, and a 66 kWh lithium-ion battery.
Chevy has also confirmed the Bolt EUV will be available with the automaker’s hands-free Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving assistant. The technology has so far only been offered on Cadillac vehicles, but GM plans to slowly expand its availability in the coming years, with plans to offer it on 22 different vehicles before the end of 2023.
The 2022 Bolt EUV and refreshed Bolt EV will be built alongside each other at the GM Lake Orion plant in Michigan. General Motors announced a $300 million investment in the plant in 2019 in order to prepare it for increased electric vehicle production.
