The highest-selling electric Bolt twins from Chevrolet will finally part as only the EUV guise will make it when the EV gets updated next.
As per a report by Insideevs, the next-gen Chevrolet Bolt will come solely in the EUV version. Currently, there are two models on sale – Bolt and Bolt EUV. As the name indicates, the latter is a crossover version of the former. Since the trend and popularity of crossovers and SUVs are at an all-time high all across the globe, it will take the legacy of the highest-selling EV from Chevy forward. Note that the Bolt EUV won’t just be an aesthetic update but a rather comprehensive one.

Next-Gen Chevrolet Bolt EUV
In an interview with Insideevs, GM officials confirmed that the next-generation Bolt will be EUV-only, citing the overwhelming popularity of the crossover model over the smaller Bolt EV. This year from January to September, the American auto giant sold 49,494 units of the Bolt twins combined. The breakdown between the two is not available. Nonetheless, this marks a significant 125% rise in comparison to the same timeframe in 2022. That is a testament to the demand for the EV pair.
Part of the reason for this massive boom was the further reduction in the price tag owing to the electric tax benefits as per the new Inflation Reduction Act. As a result, customers were able to get the EVs in the vicinity of an enticing $20,000. This is mighty attractive, especially for an EV which delivers a range of around 259 miles EPA on a single charge.

Note that the original Chevrolet Bolt EV was launched way back in 2016. There is a huge advancement in technology, battery management and competition since then. That is the reason why Chevrolet will also thoroughly update the next-gen Bolt EUV. This will include a brand-new Ultium battery. This battery will use low-cost LFP chemistry. That will ensure that the most attractive aspect of Bolt EVs’ success, cost, remains intact.
This will also provide faster charging rates (the current model offers just 55 kW DC fast charging capabilities), more advanced active safety features, and much more. Obviously, the aesthetics and creature comfort features will surely get a boost. The launch is slated for 2025. We shall keep an eye out for more revelations in this regard.
