This new Chevrolet Bolt has just been unveiled, a sensational electric compact that is now even more interesting, more technological, more spacious … And in the US it will cost about 26,395 euros to change.
General Motors has an ambitious plan to launch no less than 30 new electrified vehicles by 2025. And in that plan this new Chevrolet Bolt has a fundamental role, which promises the latest in technology, very reasonable prices and more than considerable levels of autonomy.
It was in 2017 when the first generation of the Chevrolet Bolt was launched on the market (remember that the Opel Ampera-e arrived in Europe , its twin brother, which is no longer for sale), of which more than 100,000 units have been sold all over the world, which is not bad at all. In addition, it must be taken into account that 75% of Bolt\’s customers were purchasing a company vehicle for the first time .
Grows 16 centimeters long
To keep it as attractive as the first day, its exterior has been completely revised. And when we say completely, it is in its entirety. And if that was not enough, now it is much more car, because it grows considerably. So much so that its length extends 160 millimeters, to 4.32 meters long , while its wheelbase has now also grown 74 millimeters, so that this translates into a more spacious cabin for its occupants and also offers a trunk that reaches 1,614 liters of capacity. Using the five seats could also grow from the previous 381 liters, but Chevrolet has not provided that volume.
That interior also changes considerably, because there is a new dashboard in which Chevrolet has used higher quality materials . It also opts for a floating center console where the gear buttons have been placed, a new steering wheel, new seats … In addition to an 8-inch digital instrument panel and a multimedia system with a 10.2-inch touch screen . This one has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, wireless charger …
One of its biggest advances is its Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system, which enables autonomous driving on more than 200,000 miles (321,000 kilometers) of roads in the United States and Canada . Those who equip it will add a particular steering wheel with some LEDs placed in the upper part of the rim of the same, which, unlike what we had seen so far, do not mark the speed of your engine …
It has 416 kilometers of autonomy
These new Chevrolet Bolts hide a battery pack that has 65 kWh of capacity (previously they were satisfied with 60 kWh) and that feed an electric motor placed on the front axle that provides 150 kW (204 hp) and 360 Nm. Its benefits have not been disclosed, but Chevrolet promises a range of 259 miles, which is about 416 kilometers. Now this Bolt offers a new EUV version with a more adventurous look, which makes up for 250 miles, about 402 kilometers.
Both offer a recharge capacity that ranges between 11 and 600 kW, allowing you to accumulate energy in 30 minutes to travel up to 100 miles (160 kilometers). Now, at home, your recharges are somewhat slower, requiring more than seven hours to have your batteries full.
On the other side of the ocean, this Bolt will go on sale in the summer, but it is already known that its access version is priced at $ 31,995, which is about 26,395 euros at the current exchange rate .
The new EUV version starts at 33,995 dollars, about 28,045 euros, while the launch version of this Bolt will take the basis of this EUV and will have specific details in addition to elements such as the Super Cruise system, panoramic roof, leather upholstery and much more. Of course, this will cost $ 43,495, the equivalent of about 35,880 euros.
