The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV Is The Least Expensive EV To Hit The Market – Should Tesla Worry Yet?

(By Tom Lohnes) – Starting at $31,000, the new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt is now the least expensive EV on the market, and it has improved greatly, along with bringing in a new crossover model.

Call it a raised hatchback, but the front-drive only Bolt EUV delivers great practicality for far less than any Tesla. Packing a 65 kw-hr motor up front producing a stout 285 horsepower, the Bolt EUV has plenty of punch. Inside, the old Bolt’s dorky interior is replaced with one far better, with a revised steering wheel, a redesigned dashboard, and a standard 10.2-inch touchscreen. Range numbers for the Bolt EUV are a strong 250 miles, and you can spend all of those miles not even driving, because the Bolt EUV is the first non-Cadillac vehicle to have the subscription-based Supercruise system, which some claim to be superior to Tesla’s Autopilot. Another unique feature the Bolt EUV comes with is a patented “Dual-level charging cord”, which can sense what voltage the car is plugged in to and adjust the charging speed accordingly.

So, for a tad over $33,000, the Chevy Bolt EUV seems like a strong buy value-wise. Will it hold up in the real world? Time will tell.

    Somebody should worry but it isn’t Tesla – the number of people shopping both must be a very small number based on cool factor alone

    Based on service being available I would never buy a Tesla. I live in the Northwoods and there are Ford, Chevy and Chrysler dealerships within minutes of my home.
    When your four wheeled computer breaks you want it fixed yesterday.
    Not have to call to have it taken away on a flatbed to return who knows when.

    Been reading reports of Tesla service quality and speed and they’re less than stellar unless you live in the same town as a service center.
    Tesla owners are also complaining that instead of a loaner Tesla gives you Uber credits. No F’in way am I going to put my getting to a job on time in the hands of an Uber driver.
