GM once again sent out a reminder that the Chevy Bolt EUV is becoming a reality soon, and the latest is a quick preview of the electric crossover's Power Flow Screen. The photo shared revealed the same feature running on the EV's touchscreen and somehow offered a glimpse of things to expect.
The Bolt EUV's digital dashboard appeared clean and straightforward, which GM said was designed for one critical function - to inform drivers of what's going on with the electric vehicle while in use. And from the same window, users will get to monitor how the automaker's Super Cruise will go about.
Super Cruise is GM's take on the autonomous driving feature that is becoming a standard on all EVs, and according to the company, it will be "the industry's first true hands-free driver assistance system for compatible highways."
The image provided is not telling the whole story about Power Flow Screen but CNET ventured a guess that at least for the dashboard, the Chevy Bolt EUV will be rocking some similarities with the Chevy Volt. Be reminded though that it would be for the crossover's interior.
On the outside, the Chevy Bolt EUV is expected to mostly mirror the Chevy Bolt EV as the two EV models are being developed simultaneously. The former, however, will be the beefier and bigger version but the final say on this will all depend on the upcoming details that GM will unleash in the coming months.
The company has been letting out hints on the two Chevy Bolts rather generously but the final cut remains largely a mystery. Although GM has made clear that production will commence in the summer of 2021, which is both true for the refreshed Chevy Bolt and its small SUV sibling.
Originally, the Chevy Bolt EV was geared to come out earlier but the COVID-19 pandemic pushed back GM's release plans for both vehicles. It's unclear right now if the two EVs will be dropping at the same time since the manufacturing appears to be in the same time frame.
Electrek said GM's pushing out of the Chevy Bolt EV and its EUV version is welcome but the vehicles' success will greatly depend on how they will be marketed. Because the reality is both EVs are a minor jump from the existing Chevy Bolt.
There likely would be superficial improvements but in terms of performance, the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV are not expected to deliver jaw-dropping power and increased mileage. As GM already indicated, the EVs in development will run on the same battery and drivetrain technology found on the original Chevy Bolt EV.
Most likely, the new Chevy Bolts will draw attention if the price point will be competitive, meaning would-be buyers will take a second hard look if the EVs will promise significant savings to come out of a decent package.
