The all-new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV made its debut in February, arriving as the latest expansion to the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt lineup. Now, the new Bolt EUV has been recognized as a top 10 best electric car for the 2021 calendar year.
In a recent release, automotive online marketplace Autotrader named the new Bolt EUV as a top pick among a range of new electric vehicles. The Autotrader list also includes the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, the 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric, the 2021 Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring, and the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4, among others.
The models in the Autotrader Top 10 Electric Cars for 2021 list were selected by Autotrader editors, who based their selections on a variety of criteria. Each model is priced under $75,000, and includes a plug or all-electric mode allowing for pure-EV driving for 15 miles or more. Additionally, each model must be available for sale within the next six months.
“Shopping for an EV in 2021 is an exciting prospect, from the variety of new vehicle options to the range of features offered across multiple price points,” said the executive editor for Autotrader, Brian Moody. “While EVs historically are more expensive than traditional gas-powered vehicles, the rapid advances in battery technology and increased manufacturer efforts to roll out new models are making EVs more accessible to purchase—and more fun to drive—than ever before.”
The all-new 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV arrives as the more-practical model variant of the Chevy Bolt lineup, offering an extra three inches of rear legroom compared to the Bolt EV. Under the skin, the Bolt EUV rides on the GM BEV2 platform, and draws motivation from a 65-kWh lithium-ion battery. Range-per-charge is rated at 250 miles, with upwards of 95 miles of range added after 30 minutes using standard DC fast charging capabilities.
The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is set to arrive this summer, with pricing starting at $33,995, including destination.
