The upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Bolt has been teased once again. This time, Chevy released a video of the refreshed model. The current Bolt EV will be transformed into the Bolt EUV variant. However, both versions will go on sale, probably later in 2021. GM will deliver a new BEV2 platform for electric vehicles.
Besides that, we should expect various exterior and interior upgrades. A lot of things are yet to be revealed so we don’t know everything about the new Bolt model yet. However, some things are already official and Chevy will probably increase the price of its popular model for 2022.
2022 Bolt Gets Refreshed Styling
The upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Bolt is a subcompact hatchback. While its dimensions shouldn’t change, the new model will ride on a different platform. First reports predicted GM’s Ultium architecture. However, now its official that both Bolt and Bolt EUV will deploy GM’s BEV2 electric platform instead. So far, Chevy released a teaser only. Because of that, we can’t tell how the new model will look like.
However, Bolt will surely arrive with refreshed styling. The five-door hatchback is 164 inches long so it is an adorable model that is easy to maneuver with. A crossover-like appearance is updated and the new model will look more modern. We should expect new exterior paint, modified exterior body parts, and probably some new stuff such as wheels and bumpers.
The upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Bolt will remain a spacious and practical model. We like the build quality inside the current version. And while the current model is modern enough, Chevy will introduce further high-tech updates. That means the 2022 Bolt will be even more modern and we will probably see new and larger touchscreen options.
On top of that, the latest driver-assistance aids will be in the offer too. Overall, Bolt will get important upgrades so comfort and safety are better than ever. Additionally, Bolt should get GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving systems. While this is a rumor for 2021 Bolt, the 2022 variant will certainly get this option.
Bolt Will Offer Better All-Electric Range
The arriving 2022 Chevrolet Bolt will probably get small improvements in terms of driving range. Besides that, this electric hatchback will remain intact in terms of performances. That means the Bolt model will deliver 200 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque once again. According to various reports, the 2021 model will get around 20 additional miles of electric range.
As for the 2022 Bolt, Chevy will probably deliver an even better driving range. Bolt is using a 66-kWh lithium-ion battery pack and the AC synchronous electric motor. You can charge this hatchback in around nine hours via a 240-volt outlet. Fortunately, the fast-charging is an option for this model. The current driving range is rated at 259 miles.
2022 Chevrolet Bolt Price and Release Date
The forthcoming 2022 Chevrolet Bolt will get a small price increase and it will cost around $38,000. Moreover, the Bolt EUV variant will cost slightly above that and it will rival models such as Nissan Ariya. The production will begin next summer so the launch date will be scheduled for the last quarter of 2021.
