The teaser campaign for the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV continues as the company is giving us a look at the crossover’s front end.
While there isn’t much to see, the model will have distinctive lighting units which combine an LED daytime running light with a sequential front turn signal.
These combination lights are located where the headlights reside on the current Bolt, but previous spy photos have suggested they will be moved to the middle of the fascia. The changes won’t stop there as the Bolt EUV will feature a crossover-inspired beltline, a slightly flatter roof and a thick C-pillar. The model will have a unique rear end with an angular window and new taillights.
The interior was teased last month and it features higher quality materials, an improved design and a more traditional center stack than the standard Bolt. Details are still limited, but we can also expect a digital instrument cluster and a new infotainment system.
Many of these features will likely carryover to the facelifted Bolt, but Chevrolet has already confirmed the Bolt EUV will be their first electric vehicle to offer the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system.
The biggest unknown remains the powertrain, but it could carryover from the current Bolt. If that’s the case, we can expect a 66 kWh battery pack and an electric motor that develops 200 hp (150 kW / 203 PS). This enables the Bolt to travel up to 259 miles (417 km) on a single charge, but the Bolt EUV will likely sacrifice some range in the name of styling and practicality.
The 2022 Bolt EUV will go into production next summer and the model could be unveiled at CES next month. That remains unconfirmed, but GM CEO Mary Barra is giving a keynote address on January 12th and the company used CES 2016 to unveil the original Bolt.
