Chevrolet Bolt EUV
The Bolt EUV is a new battery electric vehicle (BEV) from General Motors’ Chevrolet brand. The automaker introduced the new model as an expansion of the Bolt lineup, with the intent of offering SUV-like proportions to EV buyers. Notably, the approach is part of General Motors’ plan to launch 30 new EVs globally by 2025.
“We want to put everyone in an EV and the new Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV are crucial to doing so,” said GM President Mark Reuss. “Together, they enable mainstream customers to be part of our vison of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion.”
