The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV continues to receive high marks from the automotive media. Edmunds.com writes: "The Chevrolet Bolt EV is a small all-electric hatchback that's one of the most affordable and popular electric cars on the road today. ... The Bolt responds smoothly to steering inputs without feeling darty. The steering feel and feedback are good, and the car stays straight ahead on the highway without demanding driver attention.

The 2022 Bolt EV is offered in two trim levels: 1LT and 2LT. Both trims employ an electric motor powered by a 65-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This powertrain generates 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque and sends power to the front wheels. The Bolt EV has a one-pedal-driving mode that can be activated by pressing a button on the center console. This feature increases regenerative braking, so you won't usually need to use the brakes to slow the vehicle down.
EPA-estimated fuel economy is rated at 131 MPGe city/109 MPGe highway, with a range of 259 miles on a full charge.* Drivers can fully recharge the Bolt EV in about 7 hours with a 240-volt Level 2 home charger. Using a 120-volt home charger will take a bit longer. According to Chevrolet, a 120-volt charger will give you four miles of range in an hour. A DC Fast Charger will get you up to 100 miles of range in about a half-hour.
If you're thinking of purchasing the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV, consider that Chevrolet will pay for the cost of installing a Level 2 charger in your home. This arrangement comes from a partnership with Qmerit. Once installed, the charger will allow you to do most of your charging at home.
Standard technology features for the Bolt EV include a configurable 8.0-inch color gauge cluster, a 10.2-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and two front USB ports. Move up to the 2LT trim, and you'll get more rear ports.
As of this writing, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV hasn't been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, the 2021 model received the organization's highest overall safety rating of five stars. We expect the same score for the 2022 Bolt EV.
