Right before Christmas, Chevrolet showed off the new headlights it’s created for the forthcoming 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV. Now it’s time for another bit of news regarding the model.
The Bolt EUV will be the first Chevrolet offered with Super Cruise, a hands-free driver assistance system that allows for advanced computer-lead driving on over 200,000 miles of North America roads.
Chevy’s newest Bolt will join the already-on-sale Bolt EV, the all-electric car slash hatchback slash crossover that we’ve come accustomed to seeing on the road (in some parts of the country). The Bolt EUV is expected to be more crossover-like and less car-like. The Bolt EV is expected to get a refresh for the 2022 model year with looks to match the EUV.
The 2022 Bolt’s EUV lighting signature features a sequential front turn signal and LED daytime running light. The video was first shared on TikTok by automotive content creator Pushing Pistons.
The company hasn’t let much information about the model slip, but the automotive universe is rife with speculation. The Bolt EUV teaser released by Chevy earlier this year makes the vehicle look a lot like the Buick Velite 7. The what? You’ve probably never heard of the model because it’s built for the Chinese market, but it’s an electric SUV in the General Motors portfolio that could be rebadged as a Bolt EUV for America. It wouldn’t be unprecedented.
Despite low adoption rates for electric vehicles nationwide, sales of the Bolt EV were up in the third quarter of 2020, to 5,682 from 4,830 in 2019.

The Bolt EUV is part of a larger electrified product portfolio General Motors is expected to offer. The company recently detailed their vehicle plans by brand.
General Motors will begin production of the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV this summer.
