Chevrolet Bolt EUV

Editors' Review

The Bolt EUV is a bigger version of a better version of the Chevy Bolt EV. Despite the almost-too-similar taxonomy, the Bolt EUV attempts to distance itself from its sibling by way of adding some interior volume, and the result is swell.

If you think the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV looks similar to the Bolt EV (minus the U), U would be correct. The most obvious change between the two is length, where the EUV stretches 6.2 inches longer than the standard Bolt EV. This embiggening adds 3.9 inches of wheelbase and, more importantly, 3.1 inches of rear legroom. The EUV is only 0.2 inches taller and wider than the Bolt EV, though, which means sitting in the middle of the backseat can be a tight affair. Headroom remains ample.

The second-gen Bolt, whether EV or EUV, looks better inside and out. The thin running lights make for more futuristic fasciae, and I dig the texture on the front bumper's "grille." But the real improvement takes place inside, where Chevrolet finally decided to use materials that don't constantly feel cheap. The dash makes use of layers, color and texture, although the gloss black trim throughout can be quite the smudge magnet. The triangle patterns in the Premier's leather seats look nice, and the chairs themselves are sufficiently supportive for longer stretches on the road.

Model Year

The Good ~ Improved interior quality ~ Peppy powertrain ~ Solid cabin tech

The Bad ~ Limited cargo capacity ~ A little tight with three abreast

The Bottom Line GM's great little electric hatchback is much better in its second generation, and the EUV gives owners more space in which to play.
