Chevrolet has offered a sneak peek of its upcoming Bolt EV facelift and all-new Bolt EUV crossover during the virtual GM Fleet Solutions Summit.
The two darkened images show both electric vehicles from the side, revealing several distinctive design cues in the process. Starting with the more anticipated Bolt EUV, the image reveals just about enough to make it clear the crossover won’t be a clone of China’s Buick Velite 7.
The triangular shape of the C-pillar is clearly different from that of the Chinese EV that shares the platform with the Bolt EUV, and so are the headlights and taillights which show more resemblance to the Bolt EV.
The Bolt EUV sports sleek LED headlights that stretch to the middle of the front fenders, while the horizontal taillights don’t seem to be united by an illuminated strip like on the Velite 7. Roof rails and spoiler aside, there’s not much else we can decipher from this photo. We do learn from Chevrolet that the Bolt EUV will be the brand’s first vehicle to feature the Super Cruise hands-free driving technology for the highway.
Chevrolet says both EVs will go into production in summer 2021 at the Orion Assembly in Michigan, which means they’ll be on sale as 2022 models.
