Chevrolet is moving towards electric and self-driving. Even if the process is slow. The recently updated Bolt version has not undergone significant changes and, surprisingly, lacks GM’s new semi-automatic system.
The bigger brother, the Bolt EUV, is the first General Motors supercruiser with Cruise technology to be offered outside of the Cadillac range. In January 2020, Cadillac unveiled its Super Cruise system for the first time, but now it is reported that the technology will not be available in the new Bolt.
Thanks to this system, the driver can command the change of lane to the car with just one gesture and without hand intervention. It is now possible to use this system on the digital platforms of the new CT4 and CT5 sedans. But there is a point in this, and that is that Chevrolet does not intend to use the modified version of the Super Cruise system in the Bolt EUV model!
Because the platform of this car is not modern enough to use the new generation of this system.
Of course, this does not mean that the Bolt EUV Super Cruise System is inefficient. With the current system, the driver can drive more than 200,000 miles on approved US and Canadian highways without manual intervention.
However, it can not be described as an all-wheel drive system, because the driver still has to be vigilant at all times to take control of the car. However, it is one step ahead of what customers receive in the standard bolt.
Of course, the smaller brother with a mileage of 259 miles has a longer range than the Bolt EUV with a mileage of 250 miles. Both cars share the same propulsion and a package of the same 65 kWh lithium-ion batteries.
The standard bolt does not lack driving safety systems. Both Bolt versions come with a Chevrolet safety assistant as standard. This safety assistant is a complete package of auxiliary options that includes automatic emergency braking, lane radar, pedestrian detection system and frontal collision radar.
The base version of the Bolt, priced at $ 31,995, is significantly cheaper than the EUV model. While the EUV bolt is priced up to $ 33,995. Both new models of the Bolt will probably arrive at Chevrolet dealerships by the summer of 2022.
