Slightly larger than its sibling, the Bolt EV, the Bolt EUV is perfect if you’re looking for an SUV that can fit the family and that will save you money. If you’re looking to make the switch to all-electric power but still want a capable SUV, you won’t do much better than the 2023 Bolt EUV. The Bolt EUV can take you up to 247 miles on a single charge.

Charging and Performance

The 2023 Bolt EUV has the power to perform when you need it. With 200 hp and 266 lb-ft of instant torque, the Bolt EUV delivers when it comes to everyday power. If going from 0-60 in 7 seconds isn’t enough, engage the Bolt’s Sport Mode for an increased throttle response and enhanced steering. Simply press the Sport Mode Button to engage the feature; it doesn’t get easier than that!

If you want to get the most out of your battery life, make sure you use the One Pedal Driving and Regen on Demand features. One Pedal Driving has you use only the acceleration pedal to speed up and slow down, allowing the vehicle to capture the kinetic energy that would’ve been lost by braking normally. Regen on Demand is a paddle located behind your steering wheel. When you engage it, it takes the captured kinetic energy and sends it to the battery, giving it a small boost of power.

The idea of having to charge your vehicle is something that might make a potential EV driver hesitate. If you don’t know anything about electric vehicles, you might wonder how long does it take? How far can you go? And most importantly, is it convenient or expensive? Luckily, charging and EVs have come a long way, and the Bolt EUV makes it as convenient as possible to charge up.

With the 2023 Bolt EUV, you can easily charge at home or on the road. To make it even more convenient, Chevrolet offers installation for a home charging station (a 240V outlet) on them for qualified customers! That means with the purchase of your new 2023 Bolt EUV, you get a more powerful charging station conveniently installed at home at no additional cost to you. The 2023 Bolt EUV comes with a Dual Level Charge Cord, meaning you can charge up using a Level 1 (120V) or Level 2 (240V) outlet with just one cord for the ultimate convenience.

On the go? No problem! With the myChevrolet app with Energy Assist, drivers can easily plan their routes and check the availability of charging stations along the way. Now you can enjoy access to more than 40,000 public charging stations. Charging while on the go has never been so simple.

Comfort, Convenience, and Tech

The sporty design of the 2023 Bolt EUV intelligently uses every inch of space, making it sleek and convenient without sacrificing comfort. Drivers fold down the seats and take advantage of the Bolt’s 56.9 cu.ft. of cargo space. The SUV design makes it simple to access the cargo area and load or unload goods. With a false cargo floor, drivers can hide items away from prying eyes for extra safety. Smart under console storage spaces means no space goes to waste, making this a great, practical car that can help keep you organized.

Drivers and passengers can enjoy the spacious five-seater cabin that allows for ample leg and headroom. While adults might often avoid second-row seating, the Bolt EUV offers up to 39.1 inches of legroom, so everyone from kids to adults can feel comfortable, no matter where they’re sitting.

The Bolt EUV’s focus on practicality and easy-to-use features are made apparent with the driver-centered interior that puts the Bolt’s technology at your fingertips. The driver display screen and driver information center can give drivers real-time charging updates, plus make it easy to check battery charge, view an effect history report, or check the efficiency gauge, so you never have to stress about performance.

The 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV allows drivers to seamlessly connect their compatible smartphones so they can take advantage of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto’s wireless technology. Now it’s easier than ever to take your favorite playlists, call or receive texts and messages, plus get real-time drive directions, all without taking your eyes off the road.

Drive Safe

All 2023 Chevy Bolt EUVs come standard with Chevy’s Safety Assist package. The suite offers a range of top-of-the-line features to assist drivers and those they share the road with, creating a safer drive experience for all involved.

Drivers can utilize great modern features like Front Pedestrian Braking and Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Braking to keep themselves and others safe. Front Pedestrian Braking provides drivers with alerts and can assist with emergency braking when a pedestrian is detected directly in front of your vehicle. Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Braking uses camera technology to warn drivers about potential front-end accidents and deliver hard braking to avoid an imminent impact.

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning helps drivers if they become momentarily distracted or fatigued while driving. If you accidentally drift from your lane, the system will send out an audible alert while providing gentle steering reminders to help return you to the lane. However, if you’re purposely changing lanes, the system detects the use of your signal and will not react, making changing lanes safe and smooth.

The Following Distance Indicator is great for drivers that often experience heavy, unpredictable traffic. The Following Distance Indicator displays the gap time between your vehicle and the one in front of you, making it easy to see if you’re getting uncomfortably close. The Bolt EUV’s IntelliBeam Auto High Beam system helps take some of the stress out of night driving. The system detects light changes and will automatically brighten when it grows dark and dim when it senses approaching traffic.

If you find yourself on the road more than usual, you’ll want to make sure you have Super Cruise. Super Cruise uses the latest driver-assist technology to help ease the stress of daily commutes or long journeys. With more than 200,000 compatible roads through America and Canada, the available hands-free technology makes it simple to relax a little and enjoy the trip. The system uses Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane-Centering technology to monitor real-time conditions and react accordingly. It does still require you to pay attention to the road and be ready to take back control if necessary, but for those who have a long commute or like to take long road trips across the country, this technology will be a blessing.

Get Ready to Cruise

Chevy designed the 2023 Bolt EUV with a focus on practicality and dependability, which helps replace the stress of everyday driving with a bit of fun. The user–friendly tech makes it easy to make the transition from your traditional gas engine to new clean electric power. Plus, you get some pretty advanced features, like those found in the Chevy Safety Assist suite and Super Cruise, so you won’t be sacrificing anything by choosing to go electric. The 2023 Bolt EUV is here to deliver an affordable and practical driving experience for those looking to make a change.
