The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV adds five new exterior colors to its palette: Ice Blue Metallic, Cherry Red Tintcoat, Gray Ghost Metallic, Silver Flare Metallic, and Bright Blue Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Bright Blue hue.
Assigned RPO code GLT and touch-up paint code WA-327E, Bright 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 Bright Blue Metallic color is an extra-cost item that adds an additional $395 to the vehicle’s price. It is 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 due to a recall and stop-sale associated with battery issues. Luckily, both models have since restarted production on April 4th.
