The Chevy Safety Assist Package carries RPO code PED and comes standard on both the 1LT and 2LT trim levels for the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV. This equipment package includes the following content:
- Automatic Emergency Braking (RPO code UHY)
- Front Pedestrian Braking (UKJ)
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning (UHX)
- Following Distance Indicator (UE4)
- Forward Collision Alert (UEU)
- IntelliBeam (TQ5)
These various active safety features are available to order on the 2021 Chevy Bolt EV and are part of the $495 Driver Confidence Package II. On the LT trim, this package also requires the buyer to choose the $495 Driver Confidence Package, the $555 Comfort and Convenience Package and the $750 DC Fast Charging capability for an extra $2,295 over MSRP. On the Premier, Driver Confidence Package II requires the buyer to equip the $595 Infotainment Package on the vehicle. That means it costs an extra $1,090 over the Premier’s MSRP to receive these active safety features.
In 2019, GM CEO Mary Barra was asked by a reporter about the automaker’s lack of standard safety technology in some of its vehicles. Barra said the automaker would work to implement more standard active safety features across its product portfolio, as many of its rivals had already done, so it seems as though GM is making good on her word with the automaker’s next-generation of EVs.
The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV rides on the same GM BEV2 platform as the pre-update model, using a 65-kWh lithium-ion battery and a front-mounted permanent magnet electric motor. The motor drives the front wheels and is rated at 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The 2022 Bolt EV, which can travel up to 259 miles on a full charge, starts at $31,995 in the United States. The facelifted version of the electric crossover will enter production this summer at the GM Lake Orion Assembly plant in Michigan, with customer deliveries set to commence shortly thereafter.
