5 reasons to buy the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV

1. Easy to charge

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt is an effortless entry into electric vehicle (EV) ownership. No more stopping at gas stations when you're late for work or there's bad weather—with the Bolt, you can recharge at home or at the office. There are no modifications needed to charge the Bolt at home. You can use a 120V Level 1 or 240V Level 2 outlet, just like plugging in your phone or dryer. Plus, EVs have reduced maintenance needs, so you can skip engine oil changes.

2. Plenty of torque

The Chevrolet Bolt delivers a fun driving experience, thanks to plenty of instantly available torque and a low center of gravity that keeps it planted in corners. The 2022 Bolt EV can go from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds, making easy work of short merge lanes (according to the manufacturer, when new). Regenerative braking delivers a go-kart-like experience, as it slows the car and recharges the battery when you're off the accelerator. The electric drivetrain means the Bolt is quiet too, with zero noise or vibration while sitting at stoplights.

3. The cargo space you need

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV is a subcompact with a respectable amount of cargo space. The rear hatch holds 17 cu-ft of gear, or you can fold the rear seats down for 57 cu-ft of space. Visually, that's 15 average grocery bags, or 28 bags of mulch, respectively. Plus, the available false cargo floor adds storage flexibility and keeps valuables out of sight.

4. Contemporary styling

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV features upgraded styling inside and out. The front has aggressively styled headlights and a grille-delete design that declares it an EV. Inside, check out the sharp styling with extensive soft-touch surfaces. A silver accent highlights the eight-inch driver information screen and center infotainment displays, while the flat-bottom steering wheel adds a sporty touch.

5. Range for days

With the Bolt EV, range anxiety is a thing of the past. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV has an EPA-estimated maximum range of 259 miles on a full charge.

That's enough range to drive from Dallas to San Antonio, TX, or from Seattle, WA, to halfway through Oregon before needing a charge. In fact, you may only need to recharge your Bolt once a week. If you're heading on a road trip, the Bolt accepts DC fast-charging from Level 3 chargers.
