The Chevrolet Bolt EV vs. Bolt EUV
Leading the way when it comes to electric vehicles, the Chevrolet Bolt offers two exciting and distinct models to power you forward on your daily drive. From the hatchback Bolt EV, to the larger, crossover Bolt EUV, these two Chevy vehicles offer electrifying performance—quite literally. But which of the two models is better, or rather, better for your needs? Read on and let the team at Calgary’s Jack Carter Chev GMC break down the differences and similarities between the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV.
In terms of styling, the Bolt EV and EUV share a distinct and sporty look, with sculpted side panels and a shared C pillar. Of course, there are slight differences between the look of the two models, including the front and rear fascia, wheels, and even between the blunter hatch of the EV compared to the EUV—even as both offer an integrated spoiler.
A unique front grille helps set the Bolt apart from the rest of the Chevy lineup, while the headlights and daytime running lights meet on the EV and are separated on the EUV.
Despite being built on the same platform, the largest difference between the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV comes in terms of size—with the latter being 6.3-inches longer. This leads to the EV falling more into hatchback territory, while the EUV can be considered more of a compact crossover SUV.
These design differences also lead to the EV offering slightly more cargo capacity, while the EUV offers more comfortable seating thanks to more legroom than its hatchback peer.
Not only are the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV built on the same platform, they also offer the same powertrain. This means that both models offer Chevrolet’s revolutionary one pedal driving system, along with power restoration at your fingertips courtesy of Regen On Demand™ technology.
In addition to a powerful electric motor that takes the EUV from 0-100 km/h in just over 7 seconds, both models offer an array of smart, standard driver assistance features like Forward collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Following Distance Indicator, and more.
There are two main differences separating the performance of these two electric vehicles, with the first coming courtesy of their shared powertrain. Because the Bolt EUV is larger than the EV, it actually offers a slightly shorter range and slower acceleration. Second, comes in the form of Chevy’s new Super Cruise™ hands-free driver-assistance feature, available only on the Bolt EUV.
|Model||Powertrain||Horsepower||Range (max)||0-96 km/h|
