2022 Chevy Bolt EUV Introduces Panoramic Sunroof4
The all-new 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV will be offered with a panoramic sunroof when it goes on sale this summer.
The sunroof will sport dual panels, power operation and tilt/sliding functions, and is accompanied by a power sunshade. It was featured briefly in the Magic Is Electric ad for the Bolt EUV produced in association with Walt Disney World.
The sunroof will be optional on the Premier trim level of the Bolt EUV, as part of the Sun & Sound Package. It will not be available separately from the package, and is not offered at all on the lower LT trim level.
In addition the sunroof will also be offered on the Bolt EUV Launch Edition, which will be available only on the Premier trim level.
GM Authority has learned that Chevrolet decided to make a panoramic sunroof available for the Bolt EUV as a result of customer feedback. The decision will not have been taken lightly, as fitting a sunroof to a modern car is a much greater engineering challenge than simply cutting a hole in the roof and filling it with a glass panel. There are structural and safety matters to consider, and wiring has to be routed to the top of the car so that the sunroof’s features can work.
By comparison, the very similar Chevy Bolt EV has never been offered with a panoramic sunroof or a sunroof of any kind, for that matter. What’s more, a sunroof will not be part of the 2022 Bolt EV refresh (aka mid-cycle enhancement or MCE), which introduces new front and rear fascias, a new cockpit and new seats.
Both the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV are built on the same BEV2 platform, and both will launch in the summer of 2021. The EUV will be priced to start at at $33,395, or $2,000 more than the EV. The Bolt EUV will also be offered with the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assistance system. Like the sunroof, Super Cruise will be offered only on the Bolt EUV, and not on the EV.

OK. Build it and they will come?
The Bolt EUV looks like a winner! Unlike Tesla folks, I enjoy seeing a dashboard in front of me, not all controls off to the side. Also, living in Florida, we need moonroofs to quickly cool a car, and ventilated seats, and while we’re at it, lumbar support adjustments for drivers.
I do have a question. Having read about the next generation battery packs in this newsletter, I was wondering if the Bolt EUV will be retrofitted when they go into production? Greater mileage on a faster charge would be a game changer.
Why not a solar panel to help charge the batteries. I think that would make much more sense and maybe increase the range!
A solar panel the side of a car rooftop would barely supply enough juice to power the radio, let alone charge or power the car.
