GM Introduces New Chevy Bolt EUT, An All-Electric Utility Truck35
Chevrolet is once again expanding the Chevy Bolt EV lineup, this time with the new Chevy Bolt EUT all-electric utility truck.
Following the introduction of the refreshed 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and all-new 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV, the new Chevy Bolt EUT offers even greater practicality thanks to the addition of a rear bed section, replacing the hatch of the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV.
“The new Chevy Bolt EUT maximizes cargo capacity, offering electric vehicle owners both emissions-free transportation and loads of utility,” said Bolt chief engineer Wesley Loltega. “Even better, the EUT’s rear bed doesn’t hurt rear passenger room, either.”
The Chevy Bolt EUT is powered by single-drive electric motor, with a 65-kWh lithium-ion battery providing the juice, matching the specs of the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV.
However, move around to the rear of the Chevy Bolt EUT, and you’ll find the hatch has been transformed into a bed big enough to fit multiple bags of groceries. Access to the bed section is possible via a fold-down tailgate, while items stored in the rear bed are secured using a plastic tonneau cover, the latter of which fits over the bed and is held in place by a special locking mechanism.
Rear visibility is enhanced thanks to a wide rear glass section connecting the roofline to the new bed section, while a rearview camera makes backing up even easier.
“General Motors is intent on launching 30 new EV models by 2025,” Loltega said during the Chevy Bolt EUT debut. “This latest addition to the Bolt lineup defines yet another segment for GM to take the lead, and we think customers will respond favorably to the EUT’s combination of all-electric efficiency, abundant interior room, and generous rear cargo space.”

Anyone who buys this looses their man card or woman card. This is a toddlers toy. GM vouching for more Toyota buyers who don’t really know what a real car is. Why can’t we have a vehicle like the new Ford maverick? Well because it will actually make sense. Thank you Prius drivers for once again ruining it for everyone else.
Relax bruh. It’s APRIL FOOLS!!!
well the April Fools joke most certainly worked on “Steven” ahahahahahahah good one GM Authority LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOO AHAHAHAHAHAHA
Lemme guess… you just skim the headlines and pretty pictures?
I’m playing the transgender card. Don’t like to be left out.
Seriously, do any of you forum idiots out there even know how to spell lose!
April fools joke
eyes rolling…april fools
You CAN have a vehicle like the new Ford Maverick….it’s called the Ford Maverick. Doesn’t get any easier than that!
HA, so much for the “Hyundai Santa Cruz Pickup Set For Debut April 15, GM Has No U.S. Rival” story!
What day is it? 😆😆😆😆/😆
The Bolt STD engine should also be able to take gas instead of electricity. Gas engines in EVs are faster and more convenient to fill up.
This may be a joke today but GM and Chevy should add a small electric truck, smaller than the Colorado.
I was getting excited for a mini Avalanche. Well maybe next year.
I am excited for this launch
Can’t anyone just be happy. Who gives a crap about April fools. It’s a myth. It’s a joke. I think something unique in the market is what is needed. Why is everytbody so negative? It’s not that difficult to figure out. It’s OK to try new things and be different.
There’s an old saying “If you don’t try, you die”
Right or wrong, Time will tell. But also remember this. And no I don’t claim to be an expert. But sometimes the first failure leads to someone else’s success. And that’s what it’s really all about. Disagree with me if you wish. I don’t care.
Thumbs down don’t hurt my feelings. I don’t give thumbs down to people. Only thumbs up. I just wish people would be more open minded. But that’s not my job to judge. I think it’s a cool example of some thing a little bit unique. I don’t love it and I don’t hate it but I do respect it. And that’s enough Babble for now.
Even if it hadn’t been April Fools Day, this concept wouldn’t have been a bit surprising.
The humor made my day. Those are great renders and I love the special ugly elements added by the artist – the nasty looking crease around the wheel arches and the gaudy arrow head on the chrome accent.
In some ways the joke isn’t all that far off the mark. There are a ton of small and not so small pickup trucks out there with cargo beds too small to be of much use. A four foot cargo bed on a truck?, let’s get serious already. At least the imaginary Bolt EUT comes standard with a nice locking cover for its Lilliputian cargo box. Move over Cyber Truck, here comes the EUT!
That’s funny. Look out cyber truck. I appreciate the humor in your comment!
“There are a ton of small and not so small pickup trucks out there with cargo beds too small…”
My first thought was the Honda Ridgeline (it has no business being called a ‘pickup truck’).
Here is the problem. GMs recent product decisions make this seem plausible.
Sadly each day, all 366 of them at GM are like April fools day..
What is this?
A truck bed for ants!?
Hey. You might be able to get a few little squirrels and a couple rabbits in there!
ALL BEV’s should have a design like this. Makes it easier to get at your golf clubs!
So is the part: “General Motors is intent on launching 30 new EV models by 2025,” also April Fools joke?
I thought GM was serious for a second. Hopefully when they make an electric truck, it looks cool and is fun to drive.
Don’t hold your breath.
Darn it. It’s April 3, 2021 and I get cracked with an April Fool’s JOKE! It was interesting and the EUV with a sunroof is likely coming to a garage near me soon. Would have checked that truck out at the dealership.
Believe me, GM is not that resourceful.
I saw this on the Chevy website. They boasted 8,000 charging stations available…in Canada.🤣🤣🤣 but have no fear Biden/Harris are here to invest billions of dollars in building charging stations. I’m sure GM is also getting a nice tidy sum to build new plants in Mexico. Hang onto your trucks! They have increased in value since GM cannot get the fuel efficiency chip.
