Chevrolet released a teaser video of the new signature lighting for the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV electric crossover.
The EUV is a new nameplate—EUV is short for “Electric Utility Vehicle”—and expands Chevy’s EV reach to a second Bolt-badged model. The EUV is larger and taller than the Bolt hatchback; it is nearly six inches longer than the current Bolt sports approximately three inches more space between its wheel centers (which ought to translate into more interior space).
This video marks our first look at the EUV’s signature front lighting, which includes sequential front turn signals. General Motors is not the first automaker to use this tech, but the company notes the EUV is the first Chevy to use such a feature.
The Bolt EUV rides on the same BEV2 architecture as the Bolt, which means it does not share GM’s new BEV3 electric vehicle architecture, powered by the company’s so-called Ultium battery system. The Bolt family is the only part of GM’s future electric lineup that remains on the improved BEV2 platform.
The EUV was also styled to look a bit more rugged and capable than the regular Bolt. Although it’s due to wear more upright, SUV-like styling, the Bolt EUV remains a front-wheel-drive model, with no plans by Chevy to add a motor to the rear axle.

The EUV is also the first Chevy to get Super Cruise, the hands-free driving assistance technology that was initially exclusive to Cadillac. Both the updated Bolt and new Bolt EUV will get nicer interior materials than today’s model, an upgraded infotainment system with a sleek touchscreen, and a push-button gear selector. The EUV will also offer a sunroof—something currently missing from the run-of-the-mill Bolt.
The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV, as well as a freshened Bolt EV, are set go into production in summer 2021.
