Outside, we find the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV draped in revised styling that’s now more angular, aggressive, and futuristic, with a more upright fascia, plus revised lighting elements front and back
Inside, we find the refreshed 2022 Chevy Bolt EV features a new instrument panel, new controls, and new seats, as well as a 10.2-inch infotainment screen and 8-inch digital gauge cluster. There’s also a new electronic gear shift design, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and a button providing one-pedal driving button for greater regenerative braking.
Tech goodies include the Chevy Safety Assist suite as standard, which includes features like Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Front Pedestrian Braking, and Intellibeam. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless phone charging, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi are also offered.
The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV once again rides on the GM BEV2 platform, with motivation sourced from a single-drive electric motor producing 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The motor is juiced by a 65-kWh lithium-ion battery, providing 259 miles of range per charge.
Standard DC fast public charging provides up to 100 miles of range in 30 minutes, while Chevrolet also says it will cover installation of a Level 2 charger for eligible purchasers and lessees.
“In collaboration with Qmerit, the offer gives customers access to faster charging right where they want it – at home – and with the new available Dual Level Charge Cord, a standalone charging station is not required,” Chevy states.
Further public charging options are provided via EVgo, with more than 2,700 locations around the U.S. opening by 2025. Buyers will also have access to location data on an additional 80,000 chargers throughout North America through the myChevrolet app.
Pricing for the refreshed 2022 Chevy Bolt EV starts at $31,995, including destination, before state, local, or utility incentives. That figure is a $5,000 price drop compared to the 2021 model year vehicle. Availability opens up this summer.
