Chevrolet has sold over 100,000 all-electric Bolts since its introduction in 2017, including 13,000 units in Canada; the little car represents quite a success story for the automaker. For 2022, in addition to upgrading the Bolt we already know, Chevrolet is adding a new variant derived from it, the Bolt EUV, for Electric Utility Vehicle.
At first glance, these two vehicles look virtually identical. Buy GM assures us that no exterior sheet metal parts are shared between the two vehicles.
The more-generous proportions of the Bolt EUV
Not surprisingly, the Bolt EUV offers a little more space and is aimed more at small families. The styling is also that of a small SUV. Here are a few numbers that give a good idea of the size difference between the two models.
The EUV version thus has a longer wheelbase and overall length, which translates into a little more space for the occupants. The EUV version is also slightly heavier at 1,681 kg versus 1,646 for the regular Bolt, which also retains slightly more cargo space at 470 liters and 1,640 (lowered seats) versus 462 liters and 1,611 (lowered seats) for the EUV version.
