The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV will have a maximum real-world range of 277 miles, General Motors confirmed in a recent teaser video for the future electric crossover.
The teaser clip was released to show off the steering wheel for the hands-free Super Cruise driving system that will be available on the Chevrolet Bolt EUV. However, the video also includes a clip of the digital driver’s display, which shows a current battery charge capacity of 235 miles out of a potential maximum of 277 miles. This appears to suggest 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 hatchback.
The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV will be revealed in February and will appear alongside the facelifted 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV hatchback. Both vehicles will ride on the same second-generation Battery Electric Vehicle architecture, otherwise known as the GM BEVII platform, and are expected to utilize the same electric drive motor. The current Bolt EV is powered by a 66-kWh lithium-ion battery, which connects to an electric motor producing 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, and delivers an estimated 259 miles of range on a full charge.
Similar to the Bolt EV, the Bolt EUV will be a five-door hatchback/crossover. It will be a class larger than the Bolt EV, however, and will have more space for both passengers and their cargo thanks to its eight-inch longer overall length. The Bolt EUV will also feature slightly raised suspension and black plastic wheel arch cladding for some additional ground clearance and capability. We got a very clear glimpse of the future electric crossover via spy shots last month, which showed the vehicle without any camouflage as it sat in a shipping container.
Production of the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV is set to begin at the GM Lake Orion Assembly plant in Michigan this summer following its debut next month. In the meantime, check out the teaser video below to see its new Super Cruise-equipped steering wheel and digital dash display.
