The all-new 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV made its debut in February, expanding the Bolt lineup with a focus on greater practicality. Now, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released its official “fuel economy” figures for new Bolt EUV.
According to the EPA, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is rated at 125 MPGe in the city, 104 MPGe on the highway, and 115 MPGe combined.
|Driving Condition||EPA Estimate (MPGe)|
For those readers who may be unfamiliar with electric vehicle “fuel economy” estimates, MPGe stands for miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent, and is similar to traditional MPG ratings, at least in principle. However, rather than providing an estimate of the number of miles a vehicle will travel per gallon of gasoline, MPGe (as applied to EVs) provides an estimate of the number of miles a vehicle will travel on the energy equivalent of one gallon of gasoline (roughly 33.7 kWh of electricity).
MPGe estimates are also used for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and vehicles powered by compressed natural gas (CNG).
In addition to MPGe estimates, the EPA also lists the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV total driving range as 247 miles. This more or less lines up with General Motor’s total driving range estimates of 250 miles.
Providing motivation in the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is a 288-cell lithium-ion battery pack rated at 65 kWh, which sends juice to a front-mounted electric motor. Output is rated at 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Plugged into a 120-volt source, the Bolt EUV will gain 4 miles of range per hour, while a 240-volt source will provide a full charge in about 7 hours. Plugged into a DC Fast Charge source, the Bolt EUV nets 95 miles in 30 minutes.
Pricing starts at $33,995.
