Chevrolet Bolt EUV: test drive coming up…

Last Updated:

 I have been test-driving the new Chevrolet Bolt EUV this week. And will answer any questions you might have about it.

So far, an even better range than expected (just like with the regular Bolt). A very roomy and super fun to drive car. With an excellent Bose system.

  1. The Bolt EUV was new for 2022.
    The only change for 2023 is a new red color. And the $6000 price drop. (Which is already included if you buy a 2022 now)

    This is a 2022 model. The 2023s start production in July.

  2. The $6K price drop isn't Chevy being nice, it's because no one wants one after they had recall all of them because of the battery issues. Not a good look for a company going all in on EV's.

  3. No, they're not "being nice".
    (That's not what car makers usually do) They mostly make room for the larger $30 000 Equinox EV coming in a few months.

    The battery issue actually affected only 19 cars out of over 57 000 sold. GM and LG reacted very well and did what they had to do. I wouldn't be worried at all.

  4. Even though the EUV is only 6" longer and 3" longer inside, it feels so much larger than that compared to the regular Bolt. I'm getting one of these soon so I am looking forward to your experience with the range.

  5. It's crazy roomy inside, yes.

    As for the range, the official 247 miles seems very conservative to me (Just like the 259 miles from the regular Bolt)
    After driving 247 miles, I still had 45 miles to go on the battery.
    I do not have access to a 240 plug at my place, so I plugged it into a super slow 110 plug overnight one time. Which still gave me over 50 miles the next morning. Actually more than most people need every day. (You almost don't need an actual 240 charger…)

    This is a fantastic car. The lower price makes it a no-brainer. Although I would still wait to get one. Dealer prices are crazy these days and cars are hard to get. On top of that, leases are not good at all. (almost $400 a month Vs. under $200 a couple of years ago)
