The Chevrolet Bolt EV/EUV could return

  • There could be a second generation of the BoltEV/Bolt EUV duo.

  • The Ultium platform is 40 % less costly.

  • Mary Barra really enjoys her own Bolt EUV.


The forthcoming arrival of the Chevrolet Equinox EV will clearly help GM’s top management to reap more profits from its electric lineup. A compact crossover with a good electric range should, in principle, attract the crowds. However, this will be at the expense of the Bolt EV range.

The electric car – and its utilitarian sibling, the Bolt EUV – are unfortunately on their last legs in this form, not least because the technology bolted under the floor is second-generation, unlike future General Motors models which will all be based on the Ultium platform.

However, the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Chevrolet Bolt EUV could eventually return to the Chevrolet line-up. At least, that’s what Mary Barra said in an interview with the Marketplace podcast on NPR (National Public Radio).

The GM CEO pointed out that costs were reduced by 40% when Ultium technology was used, but that the Bolt EV/Bolt EUV duo was already an important part of the bow-tied brand’s portfolio.

And while the company’s main spokeswoman would not confirm the eventual return of the Bolt EV – or its utility variant for that matter – she was nonetheless in favor of its return, not least because such a product would make Chevrolet’s electric offering even more accessible.

It seems that the massive recall campaign hasn’t done too much damage to the reputation of the two Bolt models, the car that has been successful since 2017 with customers who aren’t ready to invest huge sums for an expensive electric vehicle. With government incentives, the Chevrolet Bolt EV remains one of the best values in the affordable electric segment.
