Chevrolet recently released some mysterious photos of the new 2022 Bolt EV and EUV. The Bolt EV is getting some upgrades, but the EUV is an entirely new vehicle.

What’s an EUV?

Chevrolet is making a distinction between the 2022 Bolt Electric Vehicle and the new 2022 Bolt EUV, or Electric Utility Vehicle. They haven’t released much information yet, but it looks like the Bolt EUV will be longer and more streamlined than its older sibling. The Bolt EUV will also have distinctive wraparound taillights to set it apart on the road.

The EUV will be larger overall than the EV — five inches longer and three inches wider in the wheelbase, bringing it in line with the cargo capacity and versatility of SUVs. There is also speculation that the Bolt EUV will have a roof rack for camping and recreational equipment as well as a sunroof to brighten the interior.

Hands-Free Driving

The Bolt EUV will also offer Super Cruise — an advanced system that lets you drive completely hands-free on certain highways across the country. This is the first vehicle to include this technology outside of the Cadillac line.

Bolt EV Upgrades

The more compact Bolt EV will get some upgrades in 2022.  A dashboard made of higher-quality materials, more comfortable seats, and an upgrade in the infotainment system are all on the schedule. Adaptive Cruise Control will be added, as well.

Keep an eye on the Asheville Chevrolet Blog for more info on the 2022 Bolt EV and all-new EUV as it becomes available. Shop the new Bolt inventory with us in the meantime!

Shopping for a vehicle for a teen driver can be difficult. You have a lot of different factors to consider, one of the most pressing being safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety takes out some of the guesswork with its new list of safe vehicles for teens, which names the Chevrolet Equinox one of your best bets.

IIHS pegs the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Equinox as one of the best choices among small SUVs due to its performance in crash testing and Consumer Reports reliability scores. One feature that IIHS doesn’t mention: Teen Driver. This system, standard on newer Equinox models, allows you to promote safe driving habits without being in the car. Teen Driver Technology lets you track your child’s driving performance with an in-vehicle report card that shows you details like maximum speed and how many times Forward Collision Alert technology was engaged.

Beyond safety, the new Chevrolet Equinox is a smart choice because it gives your teen driver as much of what they want as what they need. The Equinox is spacious enough that they can bring along a few friends for an evening out (or do the driving on your next family grocery trip), it offers modern connectivity technology so that they can stay in touch with you, and it’s got a dynamic look that helps them stand out. If you’re shopping for a vehicle that’s safe for teens, Asheville Chevrolet in Asheville, North Carolina, has new, used, and Certified Pre-Owned Equinox SUVs in stock. Bring your budding driver in to see what the Equinox can offer and drive away with the confidence that you’ve made a smart choice.

Chevrolet Starts Up Production on the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Once Again

When Chevy first announced the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, it was hard not to get excited. After all, this new Tahoe boasted more space and technology than previous iterations of the SUV.

Unfortunately, with vehicle production partially halted due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Tahoe was one of the many Chevy models to have its production delayed.

The good news is that Chevrolet is officially starting production back up for the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe.

Of course, due to ongoing limitations, the release of the Tahoe will still be staggered a bit. Chevrolet plans to get base models of the Tahoe out on dealership lots soon, with more high-end models following suit shortly thereafter.

Families in particular will find plenty to love about the latest Chevy Tahoe model. The third row seats have seen some major expansions, with 40 percent more legroom for those passengers. Meanwhile, if families don’t need the rear seats, they can fold them down to open up a maximum of 122.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Combine that with a standard safety suite that includes features like Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Alert, and it’s not hard to see why the new Tahoe is one of the most highly-anticipated family vehicles of the 2021 model year.

Here at Asheville Chevrolet, we are excited to see this incredible new iteration of the legendary Tahoe start making its way to dealerships like ours in the near future.

Purchasing an electric vehicle is beneficial for numerous reasons like reduced fuel costs and fewer harmful emissions. That’s why Chevrolet produced the Bolt EV Academy video series online. Its goal is to inform you about the myriad advantages of driving an all-electric vehicle like the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV, with information straight from the engineers who designed it.

The Bolt EV Academy hits on topics like charging, infotainment systems, storage capacity, and safety. There are many videos explaining the electric motor capabilities, and you can find material that shows how to charge effectively, install a charging station at home, and how to plan a road trip in an EV.

The series continues into the innovative one-pedal driving feature that accelerates when pressed down and decelerates when released. You can find videos on the regen-on-demand that captures energy from braking to power the battery, or tutorials on personalizing the safety systems.

The release of the Bolt EV Academy comes at the perfect time, as electrified vehicles continue to grow in popularity year after year and people are hungrier for streaming content than ever before. The automaker even released a series of videos through the National Corvette Museum earlier this year, proving how eager people are to learn about Chevrolet’s iconic, creative vehicles.

Once you’ve watched the Bolt EV Academy series online, give us a call at Asheville Chevrolet to learn more about this revolutionary electric vehicle.

One of the fastest-growing trends in the automotive industry at the moment is the emergence of EVs. With so many electric vehicles arriving in automakers’ lineups, it can be hard to stand out. Still, that is precisely what the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV has managed to do.

After all, the signature Chevy EV cemented its place on Kelley Blue Book’s list of the 10 Longest-Range Electric Cars of 2020.

The chief feature that managed to impress the editors at Kelley Blue Book was the vehicle’s new extended range. Thanks to some recent upgrades, the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV can now travel 259 miles on a single charge and manages to achieve an EPA-estimated fuel rating of 118 MPGe*.

“The Bolt is quick, quiet, compliant, and versatile. It makes an excellent city car or runabout, and with some planning for recharges can even be a road-tripper,” commented a group of KBB editors.

The 2020 Bolt EV is also a technological juggernaut in other ways. For example, its 10.2-inch diagonal touch screen is not only advanced, but easy to use, allowing you to access all of the apps that matter most on the go.

You can learn just how technologically advanced this EV is for yourself when you visit Asheville Chevrolet and take the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV out for a test drive.
