Every Reason to Electrify Your Drive With the 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV

Move aside, Tesla, Chevrolet is here to steal the show, and it’s not making any apologies. This certainly seems to be the case with the 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV, an all-electric SUV celebrating its second year. As the larger version of the best-selling Bolt EV, the Bolt EUV takes everything we love about the most affordable EV in the industry and puts it on a larger scale. But there’s so much more to the 2023 Bolt EUV than just that.

The updated Bolt EUV is laden with cutting-edge technology, a spacious cabin that prioritizes comfort, and a capable powerplant that makes it incredibly fun to drive. Just as impressive is that Chevy shaves several thousand dollars off its starting MSRP, making the 2023 Bolt EUV an incredible deal. So, what else can you expect when you add the 2023 Bolt EUV to your garage? Here’s every reason to invest in Chevy’s newest, well-equipped EUV.

Let’s Talk Money

Prices continue to rise in the automotive industry, but Chevrolet is defying the odds by making models like the 2023 Bolt EUV more affordable than ever. This approach gives new meaning to “sticker shock” and makes the Bolt EUV an incredible value, reducing its overall cost by $6,300 from the previous year. This puts its starting MSRP at $28,195 for the well-equipped LT and gives drivers another reason to choose the electric SUV.

Let’s Talk Power

The 2023 Bolt EUV continues to impress by proving that an EV can be powerful, capable, and incredibly fun to drive. Chevrolet’s all-electric SUV features an electric motor with a 65+ kWh lithium-ion battery pack that makes the EUV incredibly quiet, enhancing your experience in the driver’s seat with a peaceful and luxurious ride. More importantly, this electric power doesn’t come at the cost of capability, with the powerplant delivering 200 hp and 266 lb-ft of instant torque for quick acceleration and immediate responsiveness.

Let’s Talk Range and Recharging

Chevrolet makes it easy to say “yes” to an all-electric lifestyle by ensuring models like the Bolt EUV offer plenty of range and are easy to recharge. With a fully charged battery, the Bolt EUV can travel up to 247 miles. Tools like One Pedal Driving maximize this range by capturing energy using the Bolt EUV’s regenerative braking system, allowing you to use the accelerator pedal to speed up or slow down. You can also activate Regen on Demand via the steering wheel-mounted paddle, which converts kinetic energy into energy for the battery.

When it’s time to recharge, you have little to worry about because Chevrolet makes recharging the Bolt EUV as easy as plugging in your smartphone or tablet. The dual-level charge cord lets you recharge the Bolt EUV using a Level 1 (120-volt) or Level 2 (240-volt) outlet, eliminating the need to purchase a second cord and guaranteeing you have options wherever you go. At the same time, the myChevrolet Mobile app helps you plan your route and locate Chevrolet’s growing network of charging stations across the country. This network includes a vast number of DC fast charging stations that can add up to 95 miles to the EUV’s range in as little as 30 minutes.

At home, recharging the Bolt EUV is just as easy. Chevrolet’s collaboration with Qmerit gives you the opportunity to install a home charging installation at Chevy’s expense. Through the program, Chevrolet will cover the standard installation of a Level 2 charging outlet so that you can easily recharge the Bolt EUV overnight. It’s hassle-free and makes owning an EV like the Bolt EUV effortless and rewarding.

Let’s Talk Cruising

Beyond its all-electric powertrain, the 2023 Bolt EUV’s Super Cruise is one of its greatest selling points. As the industry’s first true hands-free driver-assist technology, Super Cruise is revolutionizing our time in the driver’s seat. It relies on a network of cameras, sensors, and map data to determine the Bolt EUV’s location on one of 200,000 miles of compatible roadways throughout the United States and Canada. Once activated, the system allows you to take your hands off the wheel and enjoy the ride as long as you keep your eyes on the road ahead. It’s that easy!

Let’s Talk Tech

The 2023 Bolt EUV is one of the best-equipped models in the segment because of Chevrolet’s commitment to keeping drivers connected and informed. The heart of this connectivity is the Bolt EUV’s 10.2-inch touchscreen display that features the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus system. Through the system, you can wirelessly sync your smartphone using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and have access to your favorite apps, messages, music, and more. Moving beyond the display, you’ll find the digital driver information center gives you vital driving data, such as battery range and an efficiency gauge to help you maximize the Bolt EUV’s performance wherever the road takes you.

Let’s Talk Safety

Chevrolet engineers are confident anytime you’re in the driver’s seat by equipping the Bolt EUV with a suite of advanced safety and driver-assist tools. The Chevy Safety Assist suite comes standard on every trim and actively minimizes the potential for collisions by optimizing your focus and enhancing awareness of your surroundings. How does it work?

Automatic Emergency Braking works with tools like Forward Collision Alert and the Following Distance Indicator to monitor the road ahead. The Following Distance Indicator notifies you if you’re following too closely or tailgating, while the Forward Collision Alert warns you if traffic ahead is slowing down. In either instance, failing to respond to the alerts can activate the Bolt EUV’s Automatic Emergency Braking system that can bring the SUV to a controlled stop to minimize the impact or likelihood of a collision.

The Chevy Safety Assist suite also equips the SUV with a Lane Keep Assist system with Lane Departure Warning that helps you keep the Bolt EUV in its lane. Additionally, the IntelliBeam automatic high beams constantly optimize your visibility by brightening or dimming based on traffic and lighting conditions. When you opt for the Bolt EUV Premier, the top-tier trim adds advanced technology like Adaptive Cruise Control that actively monitors the flow of traffic and adjusts the SUV’s cruising speed as needed to maintain a safe distance.

Let’s Talk Your Garage

Adding an electric vehicle like the 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EUV to your garage is a win-win. First, you’re investing in a vehicle designed to build a greener future with zero emissions and zero crashes. Its electric powerplant and innovative safety features guarantee as much. Second, you’re investing in an automotive brand that’s constantly improving its lineup to meet the evolving needs of its drivers and exceed their expectations. The Bolt EUV does this on every front, from its spacious cabin and amenities like the heated and ventilated seating to its innovative technology.

But how does this apply in practical terms? Let’s say your current vehicle averages 19 MPG, and you put approximately 14,000 miles on your car each year. Investing in a 2023 Bolt EUV could save you more than $17,000 in five years. How? Chevrolet estimates you could save over $16,000 in fuel and nearly $800 in maintenance and repair, a valid point since electric vehicles don’t require routine oil changes like traditional gas-powered vehicles.

So, will you add the 2023 Bolt EUV to your garage? That’s a question only you can answer by getting behind the wheel for a test drive. Only then can you get a better feel of everything the Bolt EUV has to offer and what it’s like to drive into an all-electric future that doesn’t require you to settle for anything less than extraordinary.
