The refreshed 2022 Chevy Bolt EV is here, debuting alongside the all-new 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV as the sixth model year for the first-generation Bolt EV. Among the new 2022 Bolt EV’s updates is a complete overhaul for the all-electric hatchback/crossover’s exterior styling, which is now on display in the following real world photos.
Although we’ve seen the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV before in press photos, this is the first time we’ve seen the refreshed Bolt EV out in the wild in full production regalia.
Up front, the new 2022 Chevy Bolt EV arrives with a more upright front fascia, which now includes revised lighting signatures with a sharp, pulled-back shape. The new lighting elements include LEDs, which flow into updated headlights. The front end also features a revised grille section, seen here in a two-tone color treatment with a broad, body-colored center insert outlined in black. The gold Bow Tie badge seen on models past was replaced with a new black Bow Tie badge.
The profile is more familiar, with styling elements from the front end flowing into the window line and roofline.The two side styling lines divide then reunite further towards the rear end, giving the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV a sort of forward-leaning visual rake. Two-tone wheels in a turbine design occupy the corners.
Moving into the rear, we find the 2022-model-year refresh also reshaped the tail section. The hatch glass is now rounder and smoother, flowing horizontally along with reshaped taillights, the latter of which are stretched into the rear fenders and sport two-tiered inner graphics. The lower bumper section is done in black, bookending the black insert higher in the hatch.
Notably, we managed to capture the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV in two colors here, including Silver Flare Metallic and Bright Blue Metallic. Which is your favorite?
