In late August, the all-new Chevy Bolt EUV made its public debut in the Middle East during an exclusive event in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Three and a half months after its regional premiere in Southwest Asian countries, General Motors has just introduced the new Chevy Bolt EUV for the first time in Saudi Arabia – the largest country and one of the main markets in the region.
The all-new Chevy Bolt EUV made its first public appearance in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia at the 2021 Jeddah International Motor Show, which began this week in the Saudi city of the same name. GM’s Middle East affiliate introduced the all-electric vehicle in the country with the aim of inspiring and educating the local public by showing them the benefits of zero-emission propulsion, as well as showcasing Chevrolet’s latest EV technology before the official launch.
Notably, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is the first of 13 new electric vehicles GM will launch in Middle East countries through 2025. The automaker reported that Chevrolet’s first global electric crossover will arrive in that region early next year to democratize the next era of mobility, while introducing a body format more in line with the preferences of local buyers.
The new Chevy Bolt EUV builds on the main attributes of the Bolt EV and packages them in a crossover body with greater dimensions, opening more space for passengers and cargo in a region characterized by its love for bigger and bolder vehicles. As such, the Bolt EUV has a better potential to win over Middle East customers by being the entry-level electric vehicle that best suits their tastes.
Additionally, the all-new Chevy Bolt EUV’s battery pack allows for a less traumatic transition from an internal combustion vehicle to the all-electric era. Thanks to its 340 miles or 547 km of pure electric range on a full charge, the Chevy Bolt EUV needs to be recharged as often as a gasoline car needs to refuel, making it the ideal EV for a wide range of customers.
The all-new Chevy Bolt EUV is on display throughout this week at the Jeddah International Motor Show in anticipation of its imminent arrival at dealerships in Saudi Arabia. It is expected that the official launch of the all-new Chevy Bolt EUV in the Middle East will take place in the next few weeks and the vehicle will go on sale in January 2022, as the company itself recently confirmed.
