Chevrolet Bolt EUV Trademark Could Mean New Fully Electric SUV

A few years ago, GM announced the coming of an electric crossover based on the Chevy Bolt’s platform.

We may now be a step closer as GM has trademarked Chevrolet Bolt EUV. The dust from GM’s plant closing and model shuffling kerfuffle has yet to settle but business goes on. Back in 2017, we suppose while these plans were being built, GM announced that they were to introduce a second fully-electric vehicle based on the Chevrolet Bolt.

Now that General Motors filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)  for the “Bolt EUV” name, according to thetorquereport.com, it would seem we’re one step closer to seeing it on the road.

More than likely, the Chevy Bolt EUV (Electric Utility Vehicle?) will be marginally larger than the Bolt on which it is based, because SUV. We have precious few other details however can extrapolate the following:

The Bolt’s 60-kWh battery, good enough for up to 383 kilometers of range on a single charge for the Bolt, will probably return, and possibly as the base unit for the EUV. The EUV SUV will surely be heavier and thus range will be affected – we expect GM will remedy this with an optional larger battery.

Likewise, the base EUV will rely on the Bolt 150 kW electric drive unit will power the front wheels. To be competitive in the near future, a second drive unit on the rear axle will be necessary and work nicely with a larger battery.

No word yet on exactly what, when and how much but we think the Chevy Bolt EUV isn’t too far off.
