Drive A Chevrolet Electric Vehicle In The New ‘ChargedUp’ Game15
GM’s latest all-electric efforts include a vast array of new Chevrolet vehicles, and now, fans can take command of five of these Chevrolet electric vehicles (EVs) in the new “Chevrolet Charged Up” mobile game.
The game is relatively simple, employing the phone’s onboard camera to create an augmented reality display that includes the player’s Chevrolet vehicle of choice, cones, mud, and collectable icons. Players direct their vehicle using an on-screen steering wheel to collect green and blue orbs that grant points, all while avoiding the traffic cones and mud. Grab the leaf icon to receive double points for a limited time.
Players have five Chevrolet electric vehicles to choose from, including the Chevy Silverado EV pickup, Chevy Blazer EV crossover, Chevy Equinox EV crossover, Chevy Bolt EUV, and Chevy Bolt EV. The different cars don’t appear to offer any difference in gameplay, but do change the onscreen vehicle icon that is used in-game. The vehicle selection screen also provides a few interesting factoids about each model.
To play the game, simply open the web browser on your mobile phone web and visit chevychargedup.com. From there, players can select their preferred Chevrolet electric vehicle and start racking up the points.
General Motors’ all-electric vehicle efforts extend well beyond the Chevrolet brand, with the automaker aiming to eliminate tailpipe emissions from its new light-duty vehicle lineup by 2035. To that end, GM will offer 30 new all-electric models globally by mid-decade, while 40 percent of GM’s U.S. models will be battery-powered by the end of 2025.
GM’s all-electric efforts include substantial investments into both new technology development and EV production, the latter of which is highlighted by four new battery production facilities in the U.S. under a joint agreement with LG Energy. The joint effort, dubbed Ultium Cells LLC, opened its first battery production facility in September, with two more under construction now, and a fourth planned for the future.

Interesting teaser of some swoopy coupe like car sitting between the Silverado EV and Hummer. Cadilac?
Is GM desperately trying to be Tesla?
That is the Cadillac Celestiq.
Its too low. I’m 6 ft. 2 how would I get into it. Don’t like the front or the glass.
I don’t trust EVs yet
So you still hand crank your gasoline engine to start it?
Silly and irrelevant comment. You forgot to mention the old fallback “horses and buggies” for comparison purposes…
You just can’t deal with Esther’s legitimate concerns about EVs, huh?
She didn’t mention any concerns only trust.
Okay, kretch…trust can’t be someone’s concern….good grief.
I agree. I want to see plenty of real world data on the vehicles and the batteries before I would consider getting one for using as an “around town” vehicle. As for a “road trip” vehicle, forgetaboutit!
So you just came up for air from under your rock? Tesla has been around since 2008. On You Tube you will find probably hundreds of videos on EVs describing real world data. Lots of info on batteries also. Lots of people use them around town and even go on long trips.
I’ve had two EVs now. I had a used Nissan LEAF 2014-2017 and a Chevy Bolt 2017-now. I don’t have any problems with,”trust,” as in reliability. The are issues with quality usability. The Nissan had problems with rapid battery deterioration which is the main reason I got rid of it. Chevy seems to have largely solved the quality problem with batteries which exhibit very little deterioration.
The Chevy Bolt has been a very reliable car and it is relatively fun to drive. The styling could be criticized, but I’m not out to impress people with how the car looks. The largest problem for electric cars is that they take too long too recharge. All manufacturers can be criticized for slow charge rate and there are too few places to charge outside of urban areas. How much charge rate matters depends on whee you live and how you use the car. I use the Bolt mostly near where I live. Charging up at home from a dryer out using the cord supplied with the Bolt has always been plenty fast to have enough energy to go wherever I want. Charge rate would be an issue for renters who can’t charge at home and people who routinely drive more than 200 miles at one time.
After 9 years or owning electric cars, I don’t want to switch back to gas for around town driving. It is great not to have to deal with gas stations. With gas prices currently around. $3 per gallon and electricity around $0.13 per KWH, the driving the Bolt is the cost equivalent of gas powered car which gets around 150 MPG.
I’ve never seen so many con jobs just to get people into EVs. I thought the personality of the car sold itself. That’s why people bought my cars for the last 50 years.
What car did you produce? What con job? Please tell us.
