The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV (facelift) has been unveiled, and along with the refresh, GM has introduced a crossover derivate, to keep up with the times – the Chevrolet Bolt EUV. Here’s a Chevrolet Bolt EUV vs. Bolt EV pictorial and spec comparison to understand better, the differences between the hatchback and the crossover, on paper.
The most obvious difference and differentiator is the design. With the two-tier headlamps and black body cladding all around, the Bolt EV itself expresses the robustness of an SUV to some level. The Bolt EUV builds on the tough styling with more SUV-like proportions.
The Bolt EUV has a more dominating front fascia with the addition of a faux skid plate. It features a longer and more muscular hood, a more defined portion between the headlamps with concave surfacing that increases the sharpness, and proper split headlamp arrangement with the main lights positioned separately in the middle section.
On the sides, the longer body and the straighter belt line leading to rear door contribute to the SUV-like styling. At the rear, the edgier design of the tailgate, sharper taillamps and the faux skid plate offers a clean look.
The basic interior design of the two models is the same, with differences observed in the color and patterns of the dashboard, seat and door cards. Both cars offer a 10.2-inch-diagonal infotainment touchscreen and integrated HVAC controls. More details are available on the 8-inch-diagonal reconfigurable instrument cluster. The Bolt EUV gets heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear outboard seats.
Measuring 169.5 inches in length, 69.7 inches in width, and 63.6 inches in height, the Chevrolet Bolt EUV is much longer and a little bit wider and taller than the Bolt. The wheelbase, at 2,675 mm, is also longer.
The Chevrolet Bolt EUV and Chevrolet Bolt EV share a 65 kWh Lithium-ion battery pack. A single motor generating 150 kW/150 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque propels the front wheels. The Bolt crossover can achieve a GM-estimated range of 250 miles, and the Bolt hatchback can go 9 miles further as per GM Estimate – 259 miles.

Despite the extra $2,000 price, a compromise of a 9-mile range, and .1 cu. ft boot volume, the Chevrolet Bolt EUV wins our vote for its spacious cabin and SUV-like design. Moreover, for the tech-savvy customers, the Bolt EUV exclusively offers the comfort of autonomous driving with GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance system on more than 200,000 miles of enabled roads in the U.S. and Canada. The Bolt EUV is also the car in this comparison with a panoramic power sunroof option.
