When you’re shopping for a new small crossover in Yellowknife or Hay River, how would you like to buy one that meant you never had to visit a gas station again? The 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EUV is a subcompact crossover SUV that would be an excellent vehicle for the town or city, whatever it had under the hood. However, the Bolt EUV is a fully-electric model you can charge at home from a domestic electric supply or on the go at any of the more than 100,000 publicly available charging points across Canada and the USA.
The 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EUV will change how you think about driving forever and for the better. The Bolt EUV can be like having your very own gas pump at your home, except one that provides a much lower price to refuel your vehicle than one at the gas station would. And even when you’re on the go away from home, Chevrolet makes it easy to locate compatible charging stations through the Energy Assist feature on the myChevrolet mobile app you can use with your new Bolt EV.
However, this year’s huge news is the “Charged by Chevrolet” offer. It means Chevrolet is prepared to cover the cost of the standard installation of a Level 2 charging outlet for eligible customers who purchase or lease a new 2023 Bolt EUV. In collaboration with Qmerit, the offer provides customers with the luxury of faster charging right where they want it; at home. And none of this even touches on how amazing the Bolt EUV is to drive once it’s charged.
Powering the Bolt EUV is an electric drivetrain that consists of a 65 kWh battery pack and a single electric motor that exclusively drive the front wheels. Admittedly, the battery pack does add some weight to the Bolt EUV platform, but the 200 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque that the little Chevy develops certainly delivers lively performance. The 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EUV accelerates you to 96 km/h from a standing start in 7.0 seconds, and the estimated driving range on a full charge of the battery is up to 397 km.
Driving the Bolt EUV differs from a conventional vehicle with an internal combustion engine. The Bolt EUV features driving modes that allow for coasting or one-pedal driving almost down to a stop, and the 11-kW onboard charger can fully charge the battery pack in around seven hours using a standard 240-volt home outlet.
Unlike its hatchback sibling, that’s only available in a single specification, the 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EUV is available in an entry-level LT version and a higher-spec Premier trim level. Both models come generously equipped with standard features, and the Bolt EUV Premier trim doesn’t cost much more than the LT. The base model comes with standard DC fast charging capability, the Chevrolet Infotainment System with a 10.2-inch touchscreen, heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, Chevrolet Safety Assist, a dual-level charge cord, and plenty more.
The Premier trim isn’t a giant step up in terms of price or specification. Still, it does add perforated leather-appointed front seats, adaptive cruise control, a rear camera mirror, automatic wipers, heated rear seats, and HD Surround Vision. Several desirable features are available to upgrade your Bolt EUV further. The most exciting is Super Cruise, which lets the Bolt EUV take the wheel for hands-free driver assistance on divided and compatible highways.
The 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EUV would still be considered stylish, spacious, practical, versatile, and desirable with a gas engine onboard, but its super-contemporary fully electric powertrain is the icing on the cake.
