The Chevrolet Bolt is an EV model that has been present in the market since the year 2017. The model is often used as a comparison model to other EV models, whenever one enters the market. Hence, it is quite easy to understand why Chevy considers the Bolt EV as its flagship model, boastfully explained the Spruce Pine Chevrolet dealer.

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV runs on a motor tied to a battery pack, with which it can crank 200 horsepower and cover 250 miles in a single full charge.

For the release of its 2022 model year edition, Chevrolet has presented its Bolt EV with an improved styling and a competitive price tag, which surprisingly counts lesser than that of the 2021 model year edition. Hence, as expected the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV looks smarter than ever before while throwing stiff competition to its rivals like the Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model 3, and Hyundai Kona.

Electric Power train Features

The 2022 model year edition of the Chevrolet Bolt EV makes its appearance in two trims, namely the 1LT and 2LT. The base 1LT trim packs in standard exterior features like a pair of LED headlights, an infotainment system including a Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. On the safety side, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV installs an HD rearview camera, which is a part of the Chevy safety assist. However, a few more bucks can get you the advantages of an 8-way adjustable driver’s seat, a leather upholstery, a side blind zone monitor, an HD surround-view camera, a lane change alert, and a rear park assist, to name a few.

Other optional packages Chevrolet offers you when you buy a 2022 Bolt EV model, are an upgraded Infotainment Package, a newly revised Driver Confidence II package, and an Interior Protection package. You can also go for the newly introduced Winter/Summer Floor Mats package to equip your 2022 Bolt model with the right components of comfort.

Driving Dynamics

The 2022 model year edition of the Chevrolet Bolt has also improved all of its electrical items while the mechanical parts continue to be the same. In other words, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV model uses the same combination of motor and battery as we have seen in the 2021 model year edition. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV model carries its permanent magnet electric motor that will send its powers only to the front wheels. The lithium-ion battery pack of 65-kWh capacity empowers the 2022 Bolt models with 200 horsepower when the motor mates a single-speed gearbox.

The 2022 Bolt EV from Chevrolet finally received the much-demanded one-pedal-driving mode and a Regen-mode on-demand. The former one works with the push of a button placed right on the center console, while the latter one needs a pull and hold the system of the paddle to get activated. Both these drive modes help the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV models to cope with the diverse drive conditions, said a professional driver of the Chevrolet Spruce Pine dealership.
