2022 Chevy Bolt EV Gets New Ice Blue Metallic Color: First Look31
The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV adds five new exterior colors to its palette: Bright Blue Metallic, Cherry Red Tintcoat, Gray Ghost Metallic, Silver Flare Metallic, and Ice Blue Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Ice Blue hue.
Assigned RPO code G7X and touch-up paint code WA-621G, Ice Blue Metallic is one of seven exterior colors offered on the all-electric subcompact crossover/hatch, which include:
- Mosaic Black Metallic
- Summit White
- Bright Blue Metallic (new for 2022)
- Silver Flare Metallic (new for 2022)
- Ice Blue Metallic (new for 2022)
- Gray Ghost Metallic (new for 2022)
- Cherry Red Tintcoat (new for 2022)
The Ice Blue Metallic color is a no-cost item available on both 2022 Bolt EV trim levels – 1LT and 2LT. Jet Black is the only available interior colorway.
The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV represents the sixth model year of the first-generation Bolt EV, for which the electric model receives a refresh that consists of an updated exterior and interior. In addition, the 2022 model year expands the Bolt family by introducing the Bolt EV’s larger sibling, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV.
The refreshed exterior design of the 2022 Bolt EV adds entirely new front and rear fascias, with the most prominent change being a modernized forward lighting configuration that consists of a thin light at the top that represents the Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs) and turn signals. Meanwhile, the actual forward lights are located lower within the front fascia, inside the black vertical section. A reworked front “grille” completes the revised front end appearance.
Inside, the refreshed 2022 Bolt EV features a new cockpit, with a 10.2-inch-diagonal infotainment color touchscreen. Below the new screen are new HVAC controls. The infotainment screen features real-time EV displays with more details available on the eight-inch-diagonal reconfigurable color gauge cluster / instrument panel. The new interior also includes revised seats along with a sporty, flat-bottom steering wheel. Chevy Safety Assist is standard and includes various safety and advanced driver assistance technologies.
The Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV ride on the GM BEV2 platform and utilizes the same single-drive electric motor, which produces 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, fed by the 65 kWh lithium-ion battery, which provides 259 miles of range per charge. Production of both models was down during the past several months past due to a recall and stop-sale associated with battery issues. Luckily, both models have since restarted production on April 4th.

Any idea when these are getting a complete redesign?
It just looks so stupid.
Yeah, agreed, the previous version was better looking.
Agree, beautiful colour, ugly car, horrible EV choice, miss ethanol motor…
more sadness, can only be sad from atrocities seen with animals from you humans.
Others are building real looking EV cars while gm still thinks they need to look like appliances with no soul.
Honestly, I think if it looked more like an appliance it might help. It’s like they tried to shove every possible styling cue onto it that they could.
Many friends have complimented how our 2022 Bolt EUV looks.
Sadly, when I needed some assistance with a health issue in a medical facility parking lot, many who offered help admired the Bolt but mentioned having no knowledge that such an attractive EV with so many features was being produced by Chevrolet.
I am enjoying the commercials running locally.
I forget my 2022 BOLT EUV’s color that I bought over 3/4 of a year ago… I call it “Baby Blue”.
It is at best one slight shade lighter – this ‘blue ice’ looks as though there is a slight black tinge in the paint…
Not sure why they are making such a big deal about such a minuscule change.
Funny until the battery recall only the Tesla Model 3 and Y sold better. Ford’s Mach-e only beat Bolt sales by ~ 2000 vehicles even though the Bolt only sold for 7 months last year.
What’s so funny about limited production during a global pandemic?
Tesla managed it a lot better than everyone else, but even they had issues.
… all EV cars are ugly
Going to need lots of ice to put out that rolling fire hazard.
I second it… LOL Chuck another EV on the fire.. LOL
Pathetic grumpy old uncle joke.
It’s so passé…
You’re probably just mad because twenty years from now, that’s all this car will be remembered for.
“Pathetic”… Yeah where are half the commenters going to go when they finally replace the last battery?
Not sure if any 2022 EUV’s have had battery problems – I know I have not had any with mine, and I discharge mine to zero and recharge it to 100%. I’m due for a brand new battery besides.
THERE IS a point to be made about lousy GM reliability – but that has more to do with the infotainment systems in the expensive trucks, and also huge lifter problems that many seem to be complaining about…. Those are much more commonplace problems – that GM seems to be ignoring….
IN years past there have been very common problems with the Colorado mini truck having starting trouble with the 5 cyl engines that the dealers can not fix… The newer engines being supplied now do not help people who have previously forked over beaucoup CA$H for one of them.
I don’t hear the ‘peanut gallery guys’ complaining about that.
Now that is butt ugly!
Does it come with a fire extinguisher as standard equipment?
Do your ICE vehicles come with extinguishers or aircraft-style fire suppression systems.
Given the number that combust after fuel leaks or following collisions, they really should.
A tiny ugly car that costs $35,000? Nothing to see here.
I think it looks fine, the problem is that GM lowered the price , but the dealers jacked the price up 4 to 5 grand
Show a better EV for the money , it’s not perfect. But like I said , show me a better one for the same price
Yes Jim – The refreshed BOLT ev and euv are much more attractive, and better quality interiors – a Tesla Weak Point.
I’m not wild about GM infotainment systems these days, but then its a bugaboo about all their products.
The cars remain a Stupendous value by comparison with many other EVs… I’m not super-excited about the LYRIQ, but have decided to purchase one – agreeing with Car and Driver that:
“If the $59,900 price holds The Lyriq is a STEAL compared to the competition – namely the Jaguar I-pace and the Audi Etron”.
