The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV has been named as a finalist in the 2022 Urban Green Car Of The Year awards hosted by Green Car Journal.
The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is competing against a number of key rivals for the 2022 Urban Green Car Of The Year award, including the Hyundai Kona Electric, Hyundai Venue and Kia Seltos. The battery-electric MINI Cooper SE hatchback is also up for the award.
“Urban environments pose their own unique challenges – tight spaces, often crowded streets, and hard-to-find parking,” Green Car Journal says of the award. “Here, smaller vehicles with a compact physical footprint and easy maneuverability are always top choices”
The electric MINI hatch won last year’s Urban Green Car Of The Award, with Green Car Journal editors praising the vehicle’s compact size and easy maneuverability, along with its efficient battery-electric powertrain.
“Standing out as an ideal vehicle for the city, the Cooper SE is compact in stature and big on features. Its represents what this brand all about: An iconic look, great maneuverability, and driving fun wrapped in a small package,” it said of the MINI SE last year. “Plus, electric power means zero localized emissions and no trips venturing out to the gas station in a crowded urban environment.”
With this criteria in mind, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV should stand a good shot at taking the award. It has a compact footprint and solid all-electric range, along with decent interior/cargo space for a crossover.
The 2022 Urban Green Car Of The Year award is part of a larger Green Car of the Year awards, which includes several different categories including for luxury, commercial and family cars. Finalists for the magazine’s all-encompassing 2022 Green Car of the Year award this year include the Audi Q4 e-tron, BMW i4, Kia EV6, Rivian R1T, and Volvo C40 Recharge.
