Chevy Bolt EUV sales, as well as sales for the Chevy Bolt EV, are now rebounding following a stop-sale order and recall issued for a battery-related manufacturing defect affecting both models. The defect was linked to several vehicle fires, leading to nearly non-existent volume a year ago.
The Chevy Bolt EUV was first introduced for the 2022 model year, arriving with a greater focus on utility over the slightly smaller Chevy Bolt EV. Like the Bolt EV, the Chevy Bolt EUV features a 65 kWh battery pack and 200-horsepower Voltec drive motor. The GM BEV2 platform provides the bones, while production takes place at the GM Lake Orion plant in Michigan.
