GM had estimated it at 250 miles.
The 2022 Bolt’s range is rated at 259 miles.
The all-new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV’s arrival is hotly anticipated. The North American market’s desire for SUVs and growing interest in electrification should make it a popular option. And now, the EPA’s released the EUV’s estimated range at 247 miles.
In contrast, the updated 2022 Chevrolet Bolt’s range remains unchanged at 259 miles over the 2021 model year despite the many physical changes. The sleeker EV consumes 28 kWh/100 miles which is a slight improvement over the 2021 model’s 29 kWh/100 miles. The latter figure is the Bolt EUV’s energy consumption rating.
The 2022 Bolt EUV’s range of 247 miles, compared to the Bolt EV’s 259 miles, can be explained by its less aerodynamic shape according to Green Car Reports. As we know, the EUV will not be offered with AWD or a second electric motor. If that were to be the case, the range would drop considerably more.
Finally, with recently adjusted pricing and the lack of the $7,500 federal EV tax credit (which GM is fighting to get back), the likes of the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Volkswagen ID.4 (both offered with larger batteries and the possibility of AWD) are far closer price-wise than one would think.
