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.”
