Just hours after the world debut of the all-new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV on Sunday, February 14 in the United States, General Motors announced the second member of the Bolt family in the Middle East during a special event where the company’s regional subsidiary revealed its business and growth plan for 2021. As such, the 2022 Bolt EUV is a key piece of GM’s future mobility strategy in Southwest Asian countries.
This bold move, practically in tandem with the international reveal from Detroit, shows the relevance of the new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV in expanding GM’s electric vehicle offering in global markets. In fact, as Chevrolet‘s new all-electric crossover will seek to suit customers’ high preference for utility vehicles in the Middle East and beyond.
“We have been in this region for 90 years and plan to be leaders for the next 90 years to come,” said President and Managing Director at GM Middle East, Luay Al Shurafa, in a statement. “GM is flexing its size, scale and expertise like never before, both globally and right here in the region. We already hold a winning position in our core business which has always been to build outstanding vehicles that resonate with our customers. The opportunity for us, as we look towards the future, is to translate this success into electric vehicles, too. With the reveal of the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, we are taking another step toward achieving this,” he added.
The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV is the first global model in GM’s ambitious plan to launch 30 new electric vehicles worldwide by 2025 – unlike the new Chevrolet Menlo EV and Buick Velite 7 EV crossovers that are exclusive to China. The company used the Bolt EV’s platform to create a new model with slightly bigger crossover proportions, giving it greater sales potential.
Powered by the proven battery technology with which GM has democratized access to electric vehicles, the 2022 Bolt EUV will offer the balance of an affordable price with sufficient range everyday use. In this sense, the electric crossover has a range of 250 miles or 402 kilometers, which means that it only needs to be recharged as often as a gasoline-powered car needs to refuel.
The all-new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV will officially arrive in the Middle East later this year, just a few months after its launch in North America next summer. Thanks to its bigger proportions and its competitive price, the Bolt EUV is expected to accelerate the growth rate of electric vehicles and allow the automaker to lead the segment in the Middle East.
