The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV not only looks exciting inside out, but the modified electric hatchback also has some added features and a much cheaper asking price. While the most observable changes are its futuristic sheet metal and freshly refinished cabin, it still has a front-drive-only powertrain that generates near-instant acceleration. Chevrolet evaluated that the 2022 Bolt EV can travel up to 259 miles on a full charge. That gives it a little bit of advantage over the excellent Hyundai Kona Electric, but it still falls short of the Tesla Model 3. Moreover, the new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt has an accessible price, roomy interior, and satisfying driving dynamics which should be its selling points.
The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt powertrain and framework are identical to previous models that have been piloted. The electric motor still sends 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque only to the front wheels. This setup provides immediate response to accelerator inputs and ample low-end torque that allow the vehicle to shoot off the line when the light turns green.
Chevrolet calculated that the 2022 model has a driving range of 259 miles on a full charge. That matches the United States Environmental Protection Agency rating for the previous model, and it is competitive with other electric vehicles such as the Hyundai Kona Electric. While the Tesla Model 3 Long Range can have a driving range of 353 miles on a full charge, it costs considerably more.
Chevrolet styled the Bolt EV’s cabin with a more premier design that the company says adds better materials than before and more soft-touch surfaces. The steering wheel now has a flat-bottom, the driver faces a new 8.0-inch fully digital gauge cluster, and the old electronic shifter is replaced by a set of pull and push-buttons. Although the updated 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV has the same passenger space as it was before, including a back seat that has enough room enough for two adults, and it also has a redesigned front seats that are said to be more comfortable.
