Available since 2016, the Chevrolet Bolt will give way to a new generation in 2022. The brand anticipates its arrival and begins stripping.
Popular in the United States, the Chevrolet Bolt is the cornerstone of the General Motors group in the electric car segment. Still in the midst of its career, the city car halfway between a crossover and a minivan will be available under a new generation in 2022.
The Chevrolet Bolt EUV (for Electric Utility Vehicle) will adopt a new interior, as announced by the brand in a first video teaser. The changes will be minimal and the affiliation with the current Bolt obvious. However, the screen will be larger and placed higher. This would allow it to no longer be hidden by part of the right hand on the steering wheel, as was the case with the Opel Ampera-E, the European cousin of the Bolt.
A hands-free driving system for the Bolt EUV
But sometimes hands could let go of the wheel, as Chevrolet has announced the presence of a hands-free semi-autonomous driving system. Thus the car will be able to travel alone on more than 320,000 km of predefined roads in the United States and Canada.
Chevrolet has yet to lift the veil on the Bolt EUV’s bodywork, except for a teaser showing the car lurking in the shadows. But it could easily take up the pencil strokes of the first leaked images on the Web, or of the Buick Velite 7. These two models will also share the same BEV2 platform, dedicated to the group’s electric cars.
The Chevrolet Bolt EUV is likely to offer a 66 kWh battery and 203 hp front engine.
