Main theme: We discuss the recently announced 2022 Chevrolet Bolt and Bolt EUV. Chevy has given the all-electric Bolt a midcycle refresh with sharper styling, a new interior, and an updated infotainment system, along with a starting price that is $5,000 lower than the 2021 model’s.
The Bolt EUV is an all-new SUV version of the Bolt. It’s a bit longer and taller than the regular Bolt, and it will be the first vehicle outside of GM’s Cadillac division to get the automaker’s Super Cruise active driving assistance technology. Unfortunately, all-wheel drive is not available on the Bolt EUV like it is in most SUVs.
