Trims and Pricing

Chevrolet Bolt Chevrolet Bolt comes in two trims 1LT as well as 2LT. Its 2LT trim is by far the most well-liked trim and is our choice as well. We’ll discuss the reasons why.

1LT

Battery and Performance

The Chevrolet Bolt uses a single electric motor to drive the front wheels. It is said to have 200 horsepower, and 266 pounds-feet of torque, which is a bit less than par for the competition. Nissan Leaf Plus Nissan Leaf Plus leads the group with 214 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque, but it’s heavier and therefore not as fast as the Bolt.

The power source for the Bolt EV’s motor is provided by an externally charged lithium-ion battery. Similar to most EVs that are available, Bolt comes with a Bolt has one-speed gear reduction transmission to transfer energy to the wheels and the entire torque is immediately available.

Its 2022 Bolt is an absolute blast when it comes to driving, featuring rapid acceleration, sporty handling and pretty comfortable seating. It is capable of achieving an 0-60 time in 6.5 seconds, which is beaten by Hyundai Kona Electric’s 6.4-seconds.

The “sport” mode improves the acceleration pedal responsiveness and the “one pedal” button increases the brake force that is regenerative. It slows the Bolt to a stop, without the brake pedal. The steering wheel is also equipped with an “regen at command” lever to gradually increase the force of braking regeneratively to reduce the speed of the car while moving forward. It’s an electric equivalent to downshifting during corners or on curving roads.

On the flip side the Bolt’s narrow 102.4-inch wheelbase and suspension tuned for sport result in rough rides on pothole-filled roads and concrete segments.

Interior

The interior of the Bolt has been redesigned and is a significant improvement. The surfaces made of hard plastic are replaced by soft-touch materials. The quality and fit are superb as well as the once tense dashboard and instrument panel are now clean and have smooth appearance. It has replaced the gearshifter by a flat panels of gear selectors located in the center console and the massive centrally mounted information display is well-placed to accommodate both passengers and the driver.

After receiving years of complaints regarding the Bolt’s thin and hard seats in the front, Chevrolet redesigned them with more padding as well as more bolstering.

Chevrolet markets Bolt as a Bolt EV as a five-passenger vehicle, but to be practical it’s a four-seater that has small, child-sized spaces at the middle of back bench seat. The dimensions of the interior didn’t change in the 2022 upgrade, so the Bolt still has an impressive 36-inches of legroom in the rear. It’s enough for most people however, those who are 6 feet tall might find themselves feeling a little squeezed. The Bolt has plenty of room inside the spacious cabin, but. The Bolt is only beaten in comparison to its rival, the Nissan Leaf in front headroom and has the highest rear headroom.

But, inside the cargo compartment in the cargo compartment, it’s not a problem. Bolt EV falls to the side of the vehicle in the event of two-seater. It’s simple to squeeze three carry-on luggage bags and some smaller things inside the 16.6 cubic-foot cargo area in the back of the seats however, the majority of competitors can carry at least four luggage bags. With its 60/40-split rear seat folded down the Bolt EV offers an impressive 57 cubic feet of storage capacity. Only the Kia Niro Electric which has 53 cubic feetof space, is close.
