Chevrolet Confirms An Electric Silverado, But Will It Be a Rebadged Hummer EV?
It was pretty hard to digest that one of the top truck manufacturers in the U.S., Chevrolet, was mum about electric trucks. At a time where every EV manufacturer was coming up with an offering to the open-bed segment, Chevy was out of the limelight for a very long time. Ford, on the other hand, has been active for years now, right from challenging Tesla to making official announcements.
But finally, the Bowtie has stepped up and officially announced its first-ever electric pickup truck in the form of the Silverado EV. And the icing on the cake? A range of 400 miles!
2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV
With a barrage of mass-produced EVs hitting the scene lately, Chevy’s offering to the segment, the Bolt, was looking more and more expensive by the day. Paying over $40,000 for a small hatch didn’t make much sense when you could get a competent product like Tesla Model 3 for that money. So, for the 2022 model, the automaker introduced some new features and reduced the price by $5,000!
However, to not create a vacuum and let the competition capitalize on it, the Bowtie also introduced a bigger “SUV-like” product called the Bolt EUV. It is priced on par with the outgoing Bolt and happens to be the first Chevy product to be offered with Super Cruise. Is this going to be the next-big-thing for the automaker in the EV market?
2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV
With growing competition in the so-called affordable EV segment, Chevy had to make sure its offering, the Bolt, didn’t fade away into oblivion. For the 2022 model year, Chevy has refreshed the Bolt EV and simultaneously introduced an SUV-esque version of it called the Bolt EUV. The Chevy Bolt has been around for quite some time and can be credited with being one of the first mainstream automakers to have a solid EV offering. However, with a growing number of rivals, Chevy had to somehow make the Bolt look like a bang-for-the-buck product and not lose plot to the likes of Tesla.
While the range and the power outputs remain the same, the 2022 Bolt comes with refreshed interior and exterior, more standard kit, and a lower starting price. It definitely looks like a much better package overall.
Quick Facts About the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and EUV
This is the new and improved 2022 Chevrolet Bolt hatchback, and this is its slightly bigger, more crossover-looking brother, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV. They’re both all-electric vehicles with a range of at least 250 miles on a single charge, and they cost from $32,000. In other words, less than the outgoing Bolt, but with more standard kit. So, let’s see what’s what with these electric cars that are meant to get the masses rolling on electrons.
Two Legendary Car Designers Have Set Out To Build an Epic C2 Corvette EV
We can all agree that the automotive scenery is changing rapidly with the increasing demand for more eco-friendly vehicles. In times when big V-12s and supercharged V8s are coming to an end, many are wondering if there will be a place for exclusive high-performance vehicles. Legendary designers Peter Brock and Ian Callum have teamed up to put these trepidations to rest. They did so by announcing the first-ever hyper-classic vehicle.
The Chevy Bolt EUV Is Starting to Look Attractive With All This Fresh Technology
Launched in 2016, the Chevrolet Bolt has led GM’s assault on the electric car market in recent years. The subcompact hatchback is about to be joined by a second Bolt model, called the EUV. That’s short of Electric Utility Vehicle, because the Bolt EUV will be a crossover version of the Bolt EV.
In development since 2019, the Bolt EUV will go into production in 2021 and Chevrolet is already teasing the EV. Chevy’s latest video gives us our first glimpse at the interior.
2020 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Electric Connect And Cruise
After unveiling the E-10 electric concept last year, Chevy has now unveiled a 1977 Blazer K5 electric concept for the SEMA show that previews the company’s crate powertrain future. For a company that didn’t seem to be as vested in electrification as other automakers until recently, this is a very big step. This concept also gives us a peek at the upcoming Electric Connect and Cruise package that’s expected to come sometime next year.
Check out the Genovation GXE C7 Corvette Silently Decimate Thunderhill West
By all accounts, the Chevrolet Corvette C7-based Genovation GXE is one of the most insane electric cars in the world. Not only does it come with an all-electric motor that sends out 800 horsepower and 718 pound-feet of torque, but the way it does so — in complete silence — is jarring to our sensibilities.
The American-made GXE can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds, cover a quarter-mile in 10 seconds at around 140 mph, and do all that while boasting an EPA range of 175 miles. For all that its car has accomplished, Genovation isn’t done using the GXE to break records. For its latest feat of speed and performance, the all-electric Corvette went to the Thunderhill Raceway in California and casually broke the track’s EV speed record without making any noise, literally and figuratively.
2020 Chevrolet Bolt - Driven
Chevrolet Bolt has been around for less than four years, but it is one of the earliest mainstream EVs to have hit the market. The Bolt hasn’t taken the market by storm, but it is an important product for Chevrolet in the EV segment.
The automaker is constantly updating the little EV, and for the 2020 model, it comes with a few more miles in the battery pack. To put things into perspective, it is the best non-Tesla model on sale today in terms of range. The 2020 Chevy Bolt arrived at TopSpeed’s headquarters recently, and here are our impressions about this urban commuter.
GM Just Teased an Electric Camaro And I Just Threw Up
In my book, GM is screwing up a lot of things, and this is coming from a guy that has been pretty loyal to the company’s various brands over the years. Now, it looks like GM is going to ruin the Camaro if what we’re seeing in this latest image turns out to be legitimate. With the Camaro set to be discontinued by 2023, it looks like GM might use the same body style, albeit on a raised, electric platform to combat the Ford Mach-E. Please, say it isn’t so.
Watch the Genovation GXE Electric Corvette Hit a New Top Speed
An all-electric Chevrolet Corvette might have seemed like an odd idea a decade ago, but it’s an acceptable thought in 2019. That’s because Chevy already announced plans to electrify the Corvette but, more importantly, it’s because some companies actually converted existing Corvettes to accept EV drivetrains. Genovation is one of the companies, and its modified C7 Corvette is capable of top speeds in excess of 200 mph. Specifically, the GXE just hit a top speed of 210 mph, a benchmark that many sports cars and even some supercars can only dream of.
2019 Chevrolet E-10 Concept
Chevrolet brought a very unique pickup truck to SEMA that is a sweet blend of the company’s rich history and the ‘electrifying’ future. Called the E-10 concept, the product has reincarnated from a 1962 Chevrolet C-10 pickup truck. If you’ve been following the concepts at SEMA this year, you will immediately strike a comparison with the Dodge Lowliner. However, this low-slung pickup truck comes with an electric powertrain under the hood. So, does this bold truck live up to the hype it has created over the last couple of days? It sure does!
2019 Chevrolet Bolt
The Chevy Bolt tends to have a bad rap because of the bow-tie emblem; it’s quirky DNA mashup between MPV and hatchback, and the fact that it’s not a Tesla. But, we managed to spend some one-on-one time with the Chevy Bolt and, well, let’s just say that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Despite the general consensus surrounding GM’s compact EV, and all the hype generated by Tesla, the Bolt has found a place in our hearts. Here’s our story of a simple yet enjoyable getaway with none other than the 2019 Chevy Bolt.
