For 2022, the Bolt EV comes with a remodeled interior, new technologies, and an exterior facelift. Best of all for customers, its starting MSRP of $31,995 beats the previous model year’s price by more than $5,000.
Bolt EV capability and charging
The Bolt EV maintains an electric motor/65-kWh lithium-ion battery combo that boasts 259 miles of driving range while putting out 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. A push-button electronic shifter, one-pedal drive setting, and Regen on Demand tech are new for 2022.
Also new: an available Dual Level Charge Cord that makes home charging easier for Bolt EV owners. This cord is compatible with 120-volt outlets, and it can also provide faster Level 2 charging with a 240-volt outlet. Chevrolet will also pay for customers to install a home charging setup with even faster Level 2 capabilities. At a public DC fast charging station, the Bolt can achieve 100 miles of driving range in just 30 minutes.
