Active turn signal DRL for electric crossover
Bolt EUV ready for 2021 summer launch
Chevrolet is getting ready to reveal its first electric crossover, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV, but they’re doing it one piece at a time. Take a look at the LED lighting signature of the new model that’s set to go into production next summer.
It’s a hyper-narrow light, one that we’re not even sure has enough room for a proper headlight inside the small housing. Though with modern LEDs just about anything is possible.
In a short animation included with the photo, Chevrolet showed off that the LED running light also works as the turn signal. In a first for GM, the amber signal LED light illuminates running from the center of the vehicle out, much like what Audi has recently been doing with its own LED signature illumination signals.
We’ve already seen a side view of the Bolt EUV (Electric utility vehicle), that shows a profile much like that of the Bolt EV hatchback but taller and longer. The EUV has Bolt markings engraved into the rear of the headlight trim just like on the existing model.
As part of the announcement, Chevrolet said that upon production starting in the summer, the Bolt EUV will be the first electric vehicle from the brand to feature GM’s hands-free driving assistance system Super Cruise. Though the emphasis on electric is ours, Chevrolet’s word choice implies that one of its gas vehicles will get the feature first. We’re not sure which model, but the presence of Super Cruise on the Cadillac Escalade suggests it could be the Tahoe and Suburban stablemates to the Caddy. Of course, it could also be GM needing to make sure you were aware that the Bolt EUV was electric just one more time.
