2022 Chevrolet Bolt – General Motors has announced some Chevy Bolt and Bolt EUVR owners to park their vehicles at least 50 feet from other motorized vehicles, and park only in covered parking garages. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt, a mid-size electric hatchback introduced for this year, is a small, lightweight electric hatchback.
It will be available with a range of new standard features, such as USB connectivity, Bluetooth wireless technology, front airbags, auto upholstery, power locks and keyless entry with push button remote. It also comes with seven different exterior trim styles, including Sedan, Eco, CTS, Corsica, GT, Metro, and Traverse. Available in limited quantities.
What You Have to Get From 2022 Chevrolet Bolt
The new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt (vertical flex drive) incorporates many of the design elements of the current Chevrolet line of trucks, such as the Chevy Volt and the Colorado SUV. Unlike the current vehicle, the new Bolt will have a smaller bumper. Also, its five-foot, two-door length, is similar to that of the currently sold Colorado and Spark plug-in hybrids.
Its signature dual electric motors, located behind the second and third wheels, provide torque and powerful acceleration. These motors are located in the middle of the vehicle, rather than under the center-line. Although the Bolt has some similarities to currently sold Chevrolet vehicles, it has some unique features, including its battery pack, which is not behind the center-line.
In fact, the battery pack is located forward of the center-line on most vehicles. Other notable differences include the presence of a safety-net hitch on the rear side of the vehicle. The vehicle’s electric motors do not have a storage space for storage batteries, but are instead housed in a steel case for support. General Motors has received reports of some accidents in which the battery pack was tipped over and stored improperly, causing the batteries to leak.
The Bolt, as well as its sibling, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt, were supposed to be released in the first half of this year, but now it has been indefinitely postponed. It was only expected that the vehicles would be made available in the first half of this year, but now it looks like they will be indefinitely put on hold. A spokesperson for the automaker has confirmed that there are currently no plans for a release for either the Bolt in the future.
General Motors had received numerous reports of battery modules leaking, so it is not surprising that it decided to place the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt on hold. At this time, there are still a few issues that have not been resolved, which includes issues with the electric motors and the fires that may occur due to them exploding.
One of the biggest concerns is the potential fire hazard that can occur if the battery modules explode. It is believed that the issue with the fires has caused about $1 million in damage to a GM facility in Mexico. The reason why the recall was put on hold is due to the potential for these fires to be caused by an issue with the battery modules.
One of the primary attractions of the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt, besides its fuel economy, is the fact that it is a relatively compact electric vehicle. That makes it a good candidate for places where space is limited, especially as the Bolt’s driving range is limited to just about 30 miles before the engine starts to overheat.
Many consumers also reported having trouble adjusting to the Bolt’s smaller driving range, especially when driving in a city. For these and many other reasons, the Bolt is being held up just temporarily while the manufacturer resolves the battery issues. Other cars, such as the Honda Civic have also been affected by the battery issues.
Honda has issued a recall for their own version of the Civic, the Fit. Many consumers have reported having troubles with the battery fires and that the fires were not related to the vehicle’s battery. A source close to the automaker has confirmed that the automaker is working on a solution, and have told us that they are currently working on software updates to make it easier for owners to figure out if their car needs a recall or not.
One thing we do know for sure is that the federal tax authorities have determined that the Bolt, and any future Chevrolet electric vehicles sold in the US, will need to get retrofitted to comply with the 2021 Federal tax regulations. Many of the regulations pertain to passenger cars and require them to have a minimum of a 2-hour driving range. Since the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt fits into this category, it will have to get retrofitted. The timing of when this retrofitting will happen is still being debated by the automaker, but we do know that it will happen at some point.
