Small but Mighty. The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV.

The saying “good things come in small packages” holds true when it comes to the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV. With a super sleek new design, surprisingly roomy interior and acceleration that gives you an instant endorphin rush, this little 5-seat hatchback EV is a big player when it comes to compact electric vehicles.

The 2022 Bolt EV is super fun to drive, but there’s so much more about this electric vehicle that has us just a little enchanted. Here are a few more things we love about this peppy electric superstar by Chevrolet. 

Power and Performance

The Chevy Bolt EV has a 65-kWh lithium-ion battery that powers a 200-horsepower front-wheel-drive electric engine and 266 lb-ft of torque. This unassuming EV can go 0-100 km/hr in just 7.5 seconds, allowing it to get up to speed just a hair faster than its friendly competitor, the Hyundai Kona EV.

Smooth to drive and well insulated from road and wind noise, the Bolt EV makes driving fun and peaceful at the same time. But make no mistake, there is no lack of punch in this zippy little EV, so no matter how quiet and calm the drive feels, passing on the highway is a breeze, and if you need a little spice off the line, this EV can deliver. 

Range, Battery and Charging

The Chevy Bolt EV has an impressive range of up to 417km on a full charge. To help conserve energy on the fly, the Chevy Bolt EV has something called “One Pedal Driving with Regen on Demand.” The button is conveniently located on the steering wheel and works by using a smaller amount of regenerative braking to slow the vehicle when you lift off the accelerator pedal. This can help add kilometres to your drive without stopping to charge.

The Bolt EV is available with a dual-level charging cord that plugs into both Level 1 (120-volt) and Level 2 (240-volt) outlets. For drivers, it means you won’t need to install an aftermarket EV charger to get Level 2 charging if you already have access to a 240-volt outlet at home.

  • 240V – 9.9 hours
  • 120V – 66 hours
  • DC Fast Charge – 77 minutes (30 minutes for up to 160km)  

Another cool feature to protect battery life is Chevrolet’s active thermal management system, which uses coolant to maintain the battery at its ideal operating temperature.

Interior and Cargo Space

The cabin of the 2022 Chevy Bolt is modern, sporty, and designed with comfort in mind. Along with an 8-inch fully digital gauge cluster, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, pull toggles and push buttons give the Bolt EV a modern-day edge married with convenience. The driver’s seat has an 8-way power system so that you can customize the seat to your body.

Although this EV looks small outside, the interior has room for 5 passengers, including a backseat that is roomy enough for 2 adults. The hatchback’s rear cargo space is 470 L, but with the back seats down, the volume increases to 1,614 L.

Every 2022 Chevy Bolt EV features a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with popular standard features, such as;

  • Wireless Apple CarPlay
  • Wireless Android Auto
  • Multi-touch AM/FM stereo
  • Bluetooth Audio Streaming
  • Subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless smartphone charging

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2022 Bolt EV is loaded with standard and optional driver-assistance technology. Along with standard automatic high beams and front pedestrian detection, the hatchback can be equipped with a 360-degree camera system and rear cross-traffic alert. 

Other key safety features include;

Automatic Emergency Braking
Following Distance Indicator

HD Rear Vision Camera
