The current-generation Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV are poised to sunset at the end of the 2023 calendar year, as GM Authority was the first to report in January, and confirmed by General Motors in April. As such, dealerships of customers keen to get their hands on one of the last examples of GM’s affordable entry-level all-electric vehicles will need to act quick. Now, GM Authority has learned when the final Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV orders can be submitted.
According to GM Authority sources, the last order cycle for the Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV begins Thursday, August 17th. Dealers will only have a few days to submit the last orders for the two crossovers, as production is scheduled to end on November 7th, 2023. It was reported that GM will boost Bolt production for global markets to 70,000 units during the 2023 calendar year, as compared to roughly 44,000 units produced during the course of the 2022 calendar year.
The Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV ride on the GM BEV2 platform. Both models feature GM’s second-generation electric vehicle technology, including a front-mounted Voltec drive motor and 65 kWh battery pack. Peak motor output is rated at 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, with range-per-charge estimated at 259 miles for the Bolt EV, and 247 miles for the Bolt EUV.
Both models are currently produced at the GM Lake Orion plant in Michigan. With the discontinuation of the current-generation Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV, the Lake Orion facility will be retooled for production of the all-electric Chevy Silverado EV pickup following a considerable investment from GM.
