Compare the Chevy Bolt EV and EUV at Steve Schmitt of Litchfield

Ready to go electric? The Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV are great affordable options. Thanks to new pricing for the 2023 model year, they are some of the most affordable options that qualify for clean vehicle federal tax incentives to get even more value. Many of our clients from around southwest Illinois ask us about the differences between the two Bolt EVs, so we have put together this handy guide to give you a side-by-side comparison and determine which electric vehicle is right for your lifestyle.

Passenger Comfort and Cargo Space

One of the major differences between the Chevy Bolt EV and EUV is the dimensions. The Chevy Bolt EV is a sleek, more compact option, while the EUV delivers the utility and space you need for a growing family and gear in an economical package. Explore the size dimensions between the two electric vehicles with passenger and cargo space in mind.

Chevy Bolt EV Dimensions

The Chevy Bolt EV offers seating for five with 36 inches of rear legroom. Because the backend of the Bolt EV is wider than the EUV, there is slightly more shoulder and headroom in the Bolt EV's rear seats. The cargo hold can accommodate 17 cubic feet behind the rear seats and expands to 57 cubic feet with the seats folded flat.

Chevy Bolt EUV Dimensions

The Chevy Bolt EUV makes use of its larger overall dimensions by offering an additional three inches of legroom for the back-row occupants. Even though there are technically fractions of an inch less headroom and shoulder room, the Bolt EUV comes with an optional panoramic sunroof to help create the feeling of more space overhead. The cargo hold is also a fraction of a cubic foot smaller than the EV, with 16.3 cubic feet of space behind the seats that expands to 56.9 cubic feet with the seats folded down.

Electric Performance

The Chevy Bolt EV and EUV are equipped with the same electric engine and battery pack. A front-axle-mounted, permanent magnet motor (PSM) produces 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Both vehicles' body styles and weight place different demands on the engines, leading to different performance, range, and charging specifications. The overall larger dimensions of the Chevy Bolt EUV make it slightly slower and crates more work for the battery, so the range and acceleration are also slightly less than the Chevy Bolt EV.

Chevy Bolt EV

The estimated range for the Chevy Bolt EV is 259 miles on one charge for a combined EPA efficiency rate of 120 MPGe. Acceleration clocks in at 0-60 MPH in 6.4 seconds.

Chevy Bolt EUV

The estimated range for the Chevy Bolt EUV is 247 miles on one charge for a combined EPA efficiency rate of 115 MPGe. Acceleration clocks in at 0-60 MPH in 6.8 seconds.

Safety and Driver Assistance Technology

The Chevy Bolt EV and EUV come standard with the connected technology you would expect from a modern vehicle. No matter which electric vehicle you choose, both come with a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system where you can access wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Wi-Fi Hotspot. One feature the EUV has that the EV does not is the semi-autonomous driving technology, Super Cruise. The system allows you to drive hands-free on compatible roads around southern Illinois with sophisticated autopilot technology comparable to more expensive brands like Tesla.
