General Motors has pulled the sheets on the all-new 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV, adding a new, larger body variant to the all-electric Bolt lineup. Offered in two separate trim levels, including the LT and Premier, the Bolt EUV breaks from tradition in that it will not differentiate between the trim levels with any exterior badging.
Chevrolet typically identifies mid- to high-end trim levels with specific badging – for example, the Chevy Silverado High Country comes with multiple badges spread across the pickup’s body panels. The Chevy Bolt EUV, however, is different, and does not come with any unique badging to differentiate the LT trim from the Premier trim.
The exception to this is the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV Launch Edition, a special limited-run package that comes with a “Premier” badge. Notably, the Bolt EUV Premier trim does not come with a Premier badge.
While a break from the norm for Chevrolet, there is some precedent for a lack of trim-level differentiation via badging. The pre-facelift 2017 to 2021 Chevy Bolt EV also followed this strategy, with neither the LT nor the Premier trims offering trim-level differentiation with unique badging. The same holds true for the refreshed 2022 Chevy Bolt EV, as well.
Interestingly, the new all-electric Chevy duo both feature black Chevrolet Bow Ties as standard, which is yet another departure from the norm. Typically, gold Bow Ties are standard, but with the new Bolt EUV and Bolt EUV, gold Bow Ties aren’t even available, as GM Authority covered previously.
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV offers greater rear legroom than the Bolt EV, with an extra 3.1 inches for rear-seated passengers. Providing motivation is a 65-kWh lithium-ion battery pack with enough juice to propel the EUV up to 250 miles per charge.
