When the Chevrolet Bolt EV was launched in 2017, it was the first all-electric vehicle from General Motors since the infamous EV1 of the 1990s.
Chevy got a lot right with the Bolt, including a range well north of 200 miles, a relatively reasonable price and a spacious interior, but it was not without fault. The automaker has evidently been listening to criticism, because the new 2022 Bolt EUV addresses some key shortcomings of the original, and adds some new features.
Six inches longer than the standard Bolt, the 2022 Bolt EUV is roomier, better equipped and has a more comfortable ride. But don’t let the U in EUV fool you, the added length does little to turn the Bolt into more of a utility vehicle; it has less cargo space than the original.
The elephant in the room is that Chevy has issued a massive recall for the Bolt that includes the 2022 EUV. Faulty LG batteries have led to several fires, and GM has begun the process of replacing batteries to address the problem.
Recall aside, we’re impressed overall with the Bolt EUV, but there are still a few things we’d like to see changed. Here are six things we like, and three things that we don’t.
