The EPA has officially rated the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV at 247 miles, which is 3 miles lower than General Motors’estimate. In comparison, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV retains the same 259-mile EPA range rating. Both use the same 65-kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor with 200 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque.
Despite the lower-than-expected rating, the 2022 Bolt EUV still is still on the longer end in terms of range. The Kia Niro EV travels 8 miles less than the Bolt EUV while the Nissan Leaf’s range is between 21 to 32 miles lower depending on the trim. Even the recently discontinued Tesla Model Y Standard Range is rated at 244 miles or 3 miles shorter than the Bolt EUV.
In addition to the Bolt EV, there are several EVs that have more range than the Bolt EUV. The Hyundai Kona Electric and Volkswagen ID.4 are rated at 258 miles and 250 miles respectively while a long-range Ford Mustang Mach-E can travel up between 270 to 305 miles depending on motor and drivetrain configuration. The Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus, on the other hand, is EPA rated at 263 miles or 16 miles more than the Bolt EUV.
The Bolt EUV is the first Chevrolet to feature Super Cruise, a hands-free semi-autonomous driving assistance feature. This combines adaptive cruise control, lane centering, and enhanced steering assist. A light bar embedded on the steering wheel lets you know if you can take your hands off the steering wheel. The car will also let you know if it needs you to take over driving duties.
