Chevy Bolt EV Could Be Replaced With Ultium-Based Crossover21
General Motors is moving to release a vast array of all-electric vehicles in the next few years, with a commitment to launch 30 new EVs by 2025. Now, according to one recent report, one of those new models could be a new Ultium-based crossover replacement for the Chevy Bolt EV.
Per Automotive News, General Motors will replace the Chevy Bolt EV with a new Ultium-based crossover model in 2023. The outlet lists several other models in line for replacement with a zero-emission successor, including the Chevy Bolt EUV, which is also said to be in line for replacement with an Ultium-powered crossover in 2024, and the Chevy Camaro, which is said to be in line for replacement by a performance-oriented EV sedan in 2024 as well.
The publication also lists the Cadillac XT4, Cadillac XT5, and Cadillac XT6 as being replaced by the Cadillac Lyriq, Cadillac Optiq, and Cadillac Symboliq. Meanwhile, the Chevy Spark, Chevy Trax, Buick Encore, and Chevy Malibu are listed as being phased out in the next few years to make room for GM’s latest EV models.
The Chevy Bolt EV was recently refreshed for the 2022 model year, dropping cover in February alongside the all-new 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV. The refreshed Bolt EV features revised styling with an all-new front fascia, including new lighting elements, a new grille, and more.
The interior of the Chevy Bolt EV was also refreshed for the 2022 model year, with a new instrument panel, new controls, new seats, and a 10.2-inch infotainment screen paired with an 8-inch digital gauge cluster. The seats were revised to be more comfortable, while the latest safety tech is onboard thanks to the standard Chevy Safety Assist suite.
Under the skin, the current Chevy Bolt EV rides on the GM BEV2 platform, while a single-drive electric motor juiced by a 65-kWh lithium-ion battery provides the motivation with 200 horsepower, 266 pound-feet of torque, and 259 miles of range per charge.

Wish they’d come out before my lease is up but I don’t see that happening
If it isn’t already the plan, GM have messed up.
GM should use the transition to EVs to renter segments they have bin pushed out of.
Instead of replacing the Bolt EV with an EV crossover replace the Bolt with another generation of EV hatchback while adding a EV crossover to the lineup.
You know instead of making new cars why don’t you fix the ones you have out now! So maybe we can all stop worrying about charging our cars at night! We can stop being scared we are going to burn down our houses!! I’m so glad your teams can spend time coming up with NEW car ideas why the people who bought you old “new” car ideas are worried over your messes! Thank you GM for announcing you new car concepts! Big round of applause!
So beautiful car
there is nothing said about fast charging times which are very slow now 30 minutes for 100 miles . the new models do that in 15
I believe this article has been written to DISTRACT the public from the AVALANCHE of recent bad news of the current problems GM has with the Bolt.
They should bring back the Impala and make it all EV. A classic car like that is really missed right now.
As long as the new EV model is a true crossover and not more of a hatchback like the Bolt EV is that would be more popular.
Where there is a demand GM will find it. Small x-over, mid/ large. Sports car, pick-up truck, Lux car. Family car..naah
We will run our VOLT and Cruzes as far as they will go. Economy and range!
Short life cycle to the 2022 Bolts, just read an article from GM the Bolt will either be dropped or given the new plaform and new type of battery by 2026.
Don’t forget these Bolts were suppose to be out last year, but Covid delayed their release. 2023 will be 7 years after the Bolt’s initial release, so a normal time to replace it.
Short life cycle? The “refreshed” Bolt is basically the same exact thing as the old one only it doesn’t catch fire yet. All the Bolts are antiquated and undesirable tech built in a facility that hasn’t been largely retooled in a decade.
Lowercase gm makes mostly uncompetitive garbage right now, with the exception of the Cadillac sedans, C8, and Body on frame trucks/SUVs.
gm really doesn’t get it. The Bolt should be the new VW bug of the EV world. Yes I know that it does not currently sell well but even W only sold two cars the first year that they came out. Only through refinement and improvement will you built a true customer base that will trust you to keep purchasing new gm cars. There is no strategic thinkers at gm only money grubbing prostitutes who don’t care about their customers. I’m sorry to offend anyone with my opinions I just am very disappointed in gm’s management and marketing.
