2023 Chevy Bolt EV and EUV LaGrange

There’s a lot of buzz around the Chevrolet Bolt EV vs. EUV, but are you curious about its features and specs? When it comes to plug-in electric vehicles, the Chevy Bolt is the one to beat. Now it’s available with even more range. Learn about the new 2023 Chevy Bolt and see how it stacks up to the competition.

What’s new in the 2023 Chevy Bolt?

EV

The major modification for the 2023 Chevy Bolt is a price reduction of $5900 from the 2022 model. With the firm having built enough electric vehicles to no longer be eligible for the $7500 federal tax credit, Chevrolet has drastically reduced the Bolt’s price to maintain its competitive cost. Aside from the price change, a new Radiant Red Tintcoat paint color is the main improvement.

EUV

A new Redline Edition package for the Bolt EUV will be available in 2023, and it can be added to either the LT or Premier trim. Choosing the Redline Edition model replaces the chrome exterior decoration of the basic Bolt EUV with glossy black and adds distinctive wheels with a red stripe. The significant change is that the entry pricing for the Bolt EUV and its hatchback brother, the Bolt EV, has been significantly reduced this year, dropping by $6300.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

EV

The majority of electric automobiles have a distinctive one-pedal driving style. The Regen on Demand shift paddle located beneath the steering wheel allows the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV to accomplish this.

EUV

With little difference from its hatchback sibling, the 2023 Bolt EUV is perfect for dart-and-brake city driving, even if it isn’t a sports vehicle. One-pedal driving is another quality that is perfect for the daily grind in towns. The driver doesn’t have to use the brakes as much unless a quick stop is necessary.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

2023 Chevy Bolt EV Cargo

With a more premium design that, according to Chevy, features better materials than before and more soft-touch surfaces, the Bolt EV’s interior gets a facelift. An edgy flat bottom has been added to the steering wheel, and the previous electronic shifter has been replaced with a collection of toggles and buttons. The driver now sees a new digital gauge cluster 8.0 inches in size.

The Bolt EUV is more prolonged, broader, and higher than the standard Bolt hatchback. This extra room benefits the rear seat, with more than three inches of additional legroom. We believe that most drivers will still have ample room for baggage, food, and other freight even if the EUV only offers marginally more significant cargo space despite its longer length.

Infotainment and Connectivity

2023 Chevy Bolt EV infotainment

EV

A 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with popular features like wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is included on every Bolt EV. A wireless smartphone charger and a Wi-Fi hotspot with a subscription model. Physical volume and tuning knobs, as well as a shortcut button for the home screen, are included in addition to the touch controls. The Chevy’s infotainment system supports over-the-air upgrades and has integrated applications that work with Spotify and Amazon Alexa for music streaming.

EUV

Same features also apply to the Bolt EUV with a slight difference. The Bolt EUV has a smartphone app that can be programmed to deliver charging notifications and connect to nearby charging networks may also be used by the Bolt EUV to interact with its driver remotely.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2023 Bolt EV and EUV have the same functionality. But those who want more sophisticated technology, such as the Super Cruise hands-free driving system equipped in the Bolt EUV, will have to pay more.

EV EUV
Chevy Saftey Assist Forward collision warning, automated emergency braking, pedestrian recognition, lane-keeping assistance/lane-departure warning, automatic high beams, and a following distance indicator are all standard features on every new Chevy Bolt EV. Every new Bolt EUV comes equipped with this suite of driving aids, which includes automatic high beams, lane-keeping assistance, lane-departure warning, front collision warning with automated emergency braking, and pedestrian recognition.
Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert Also known as Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, which warns the driver of approaching cars on either side. Rear cross-traffic warning is another feature of this system, which comes in handy while backing out of a parking place. All of this is an option on the 1LT and a must on the 2LT. Chevrolet refers to what is essentially blind-spot monitoring as Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert. The Bolt EUV’s Premier trim comes standard with this technology; the LT trim has it as an option.
HD Surround Vision The driver of the 2023 Bolt EV has a great vision all around the vehicle when navigating thanks to a high-definition 360-degree camera system. This is included with the 2LT version as standard. A 360-degree camera system is another name for an HD camera system. For the Premier trim, it comes as standard equipment.

Interior Design

2023 Chevy Bolt Interior

Bolt EUV offers dramatic SUV-like proportions to give you more space and comfort without sacrificing convenience, featuring:

  • 39.1 – Inches of Rear-Seat Leg Room – Comfortable space for passengers
  • False Cargo Floor: Hidden Storage Area
  • Smart Storage: Under console storage area
  • 5-Passenger Seating: Room to fit family and friends

Exterior Color

  • EV

    The Bolt EV’s style was refreshed by a facelift last year, which enhanced its electric-car aura with the filled-in grille and slim LED headlights. The car is a touch taller overall than, say, a Chevrolet Spark while being essentially a small hatchback. This makes space for mounting the battery pack beneath the floor.

    EUV

    The Bolt EUV makes the most of its compact footprint by positioning its wheels as deep into the corners as possible and having minimal overhangs. With typical roof rails, it also offers some usefulness.

    For the 2023 model year, Radiant Red Tintcoat will be offered as an alternative to Cherry Red Tintcoat for the Chevrolet Bolt EUV. Along with this new paint color, Mosaic Black Metallic, Summit White, Gray Ghost Metallic, and Silver Flare Metallic will also be available in metallic versions in Ice Blue, Bright Blue, and Bright Blue.
