General Motors (GM) has made an impressive start to 2023 as the automaker charges ahead on its EV strategy. GM plans to push past the competition with seven Ultium-based EVs, in addition to the Bolt EV and EUV, by the end of the year. The Bolt EUV Premier is an excellent choice for those looking for a capable, efficient, and affordable electric vehicle.
The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV Premier is an all-new, small SUV based on the Bolt Hatchback. It is six inches longer and dedicates three inches of that space to rear legroom. It’s powered by a single electric motor and a 65 kWh battery, giving it excellent range and power. Despite its impressive performance, the EUV still manages to achieve an EPA-estimated 259 miles of range on a single charge.
Impressive Safety Features and Convenience Features
The Bolt EUV Premier has impressive safety features, such as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. It also has an available driver assistance package, which adds adaptive cruise control and a surround-view camera.
It comes with plenty of luxury and convenience features. The interior is well-equipped with leather seats, a 10-inch infotainment touchscreen with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and heated front seats. The exterior features 19-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, and a hands-free liftgate.
Super Cruise – First Chevrolet to have this option
Among the extras offered is Super Cruise. It’s General Motors’ hands-free driver assistance technology, and the EUV is the first Chevrolet to have this option. Super Cruise is best used in free-flowing situations like a drive up the 5 or a trip on LA’s other highways at non-peak times. It detects when your attention waivers from the road and alerts you. So don’t think you can nap or read a book. Your attention is needed too.
Retooling the Supply Chain for the Future of Electric
GM began developing its Ultium EV architecture in 2018, an incredibly versatile platform that can be used for a wide range of vehicle sizes and shapes. According to GM’s leader, the company will have seven EVs, all different sizes and segments, on the Ultium platform by the end of 2023, in addition to the Chevy Bolt EV and EUV.
The flexibility allows GM to offer EVs at all different price points or what the company refers to as “EVs for everyone.” GM has said that it will need to offer EVs in the $30,000 to $40,000 range. That said, the upcoming Equinox EV is slated to start around $30,000, while the Blazer EV has an estimated MSRP of $44,995.
Driving the Bolt EUV is a lot of fun. It accelerates quickly and is relatively nimble along curvy roads. The estimated 247 miles on a single charge goes a long way to reducing range anxiety.
