The latest information related to one of the most interesting electric vehicles is still uncertain. The following data are provided by a source connected to the GM factory. The new model of 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV is still in a process of adjustment but most of the work is done. The new model should be treated as an electric utility vehicle, which is similar to its sibling 2023 Chevy Bolt EV. Although the lineup is fairly similar, the next EV will have some minor changes.
The new generation should not have major differences compared to the current one. Although some redesign changes and infotainment upgrades are definite, we will not be seeing bigger adjustments. However, by the year 2025, it is rumored that one of these series is supposed to be discontinued. Although nothing is confirmed yet, the GM company will probably change the nameplate of add some details which will construct a new lineup.
2023 Chevy Bolt EUV Exterior
The exterior should not be having any major upgrades or greater unrecognizable details. The new 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV will be slightly different compared to the previous model but not too much. The new Bolt will use the same platform and same powertrain. The exterior is at the first glance identical and shabbier, with a new lighting system. the LED lights are sleek with doubled turn signals, and with redesigned brake lights and blindfolds.
Although the overall lineup is similar, the dimensions are quite surprising. The new Bolt is taller and longer no matter for using the same platform. The new Bolt is 6.2 inches longer and 0.2 inches taller and wider as well. The side rail is positioned on the roof which is a nice touch. The 17-inch wheels were also used as with the previous model.
The interior of a new 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV should be more interesting and better equipped. the new Bold will have a longer wheelbase so we are up to more spaciousness. The most comfortable part is between the driver and steering wheel which makes the cabin more relaxed. The steering wheel is easy to use also as a push-button gear selector. Although is taller than the regular hatchback, the inner space is nicely done which is able to receive up to five passengers. although the cargo space is reduced, it is still challenging at some point to fit all the cargo necessary.
The upper trim levels are available in a combination with multiple colors, and the materials are basically mixed with natural materials and hardened fibers. The stitching is made in right angles so it appears to be really luxurious and appealing. However, these are just some details on which we can count. We believe that until the final launching, the redesign will be more notable with better dashboard options and redesign in general. The climate is easy to control and there will be an upgraded electronic push-button shifter.
Electric Drivetrain Range and Specs
The GM company has prepared the same engine battery and powertrain so we can expect a 200 hp electric motor and FWD since the AWD is not an option. The new Bolt may be the fastest SUV but it can reach 60mph in 7.0 seconds. The handling is competent and provides relaxing drives even on uneven surfaces. The compact powertrain delivers cubic footage and cargo similar to Bolt EUV. Comparing it with pricing and with no AWD possibility, the Bolt still has some advantages like home charging or simplified care. Nevertheless, the sale is going to be challenging.
All of these SUVs are equipped with a 65.0-kWh battery. It is able to provide a driving distance of 250 miles on a full charge. This battery makes Bolt competitive even with the Tesla Model Y. It is available with a larger battery and 326 miles range. The new 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV can be charged with a standard 120-volt household outlet. Still, demands are requiring a possibility of a 240-volt connection for faster home charging. Although these data are still intriguing we believe that another twice faster battery charging is possible, it is not likely that it will be adopted for this model. However, the future Bolts may have that feature available.
2023 Chevy Bolt EUV price
The new 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV will tend to be released by the end of 2023 but nothing is confirmed yet. However, during the pandemic, many new launchings are delayed and by that cost, all suffer especially the top markets. This modern EUV will be available mainly for US and China markets.
The estimated price for this vehicle is granted for $34,000. The upper trim levels such as Premier will cost roughly about $38,000. Although it is not confirmed yet, the new Bolt should be replaced by more hatchback series and with dropping the old nameplate. A more expensive option will be Cadillac Lyriq. It will be launched at about the same time as the Chevy Bolt.
