Chevrolet now has two electric cars on the market, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and the Bolt EUVa, with plans to launch EV models of the Silverado, Blazer, and Equinox in 2023 and 2024. With two electric cars already on Chevyas line, and three more to comeathe 2022 Chevy Bolt EV, Blazer EV, and Equinox EVathereas no telling whatas coming from Chevy. Chevy has also got three new electric cars coming out over the next couple of yearsathe Silverado, Blazer, and Equinox. In addition to the Chevy Bolt EV and Bolt EUV, GMs earliest new electric vehicles included a high-priced electric pickup, the GMC Hummer EV, and a crossover, the Cadillac Lyriq.
Along with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, GM plans to introduce a handful of EVs with starting prices in the $30,000. A Chevy Silverado EV and fully electric Equinox are under development, along with many more options.
GMs commitment to an extended-range EV approach continues with the launch of the 2016 Chevrolet Volt. Its newest new electric concept ushers in a new age for vehicle electrification, creating a new vehicle category known as an extended-range electric vehicle, or E-REV. Moving rapidly from concept to reality, its next new electric concept became the only mass-produced, U.S.-built EV.
The Volts centerpiece is its Voltec electric drivetrain, combining all-electric driving with an efficient gasoline-powered motor, giving the Volt a range of up to 379 miles overall before having to recharge its batteries or refill the small tank. From there, its internal combustion engine powers the electric generator, which expands the Chevrolet Volts range when needed. The drivetrain allows the Volt to run as a pure battery-electric car until its battery capacity is exhausted to a certain point, at which point it begins running as a serial-hybrid design, with its internal combustion engine driving the generator that keeps the battery charged at minimum levels and supplies energy to the electric motor. The Chevrolet Volt concept car was the first application of the E-Flex (Voltec) drive system, featuring a combination of an electric motor, the same used in the Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell, a 16 kWh (58 MJ) lithium-ion battery pack with 136 kW peak output, and a genset consisting of a small turbocharged 1.0 L 3-cylinder Flex-fuel-capable engine linked to a 53 kW (71 hp) generator.

The base Bolt EV 1LT and 2023 larger Bolt EUV are powered by 200 horsepower on a front-wheel-drive motor, and the 65-kWh battery pack provides 259 miles for the Bolt EV, or 224 miles for the Bolt EUV. The two would share the same platform, battery pack, and drivetrain, but according to Chevy, the latter would come a little longer, taller, and heavier.
The second is the slightly larger version of a car that Chevrolet is calling a Bolt EUV. The one is the mid-cycle refresh of the companys first broadly available EV, the Bolt EV. As Chevys first EV-powered utility vehicle, the new compact SUV offers 2022 Chevy Bolt EV styling and performance, with a roomier cabin and more robust look. The Bolt EV and all-new compact SUV both received strong ratings, but depending on your priorities, these two EVs might not do nearly as well compared with their gasoline-powered cousins or the other available EVs.
With a body that looks similar to 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EVs gasoline-powered siblings, the new Silverado EV features Chevys same classic pickup styling, but it features futuristic elements on both inside and outside. The all-electric 2024 Blazer EV is built on General Motors groundbreaking Ultium platform, featuring an athletic style that lifts off of the harbinger design established by the 2018 gasoline-powered Chevy Blazer, with performance cues inspired by Camaro and Corvette. The innovative, dynamic, and athletic styling of the 2024 all-electric Blazer EV is infused with Chevys performance DNA, creating a compelling design unlike any other in its segment.
DETROIT — Chevy today unveiled the all-electric 2024 Blazer EV, expanding the brands growing portfolio of EVs, making ownership EVs more affordable, and driving Chevy to the center of the growing midsize EV crossover segment. Chevrolet unveiled the two new 2022 all-electric models as part of a collaborative marketing effort with entertainment giant Disney. Under the General Motors Vehicle Electrification Strategy, and following the introduction to the US market of the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid car at the end of 2010, the Chevrolet Spark EV was released in June 2013, becoming GMs first fully electric passenger vehicle to hit the US market since the discontinuation of the EV1 in 1999. Chevrolet models include fuel-efficient, electric vehicles with exciting performance, designs that get your heart racing, passive and active safety features, and user-friendly technologies, all at an affordable price.
With the fire problem resolved, GM is beefing up the lineup for its electric vehicles, with six EV models set for sale this year, the nearly 20% price reduction for the base Bolt EV 1LT is a signal of goodwill. Rather than working on improving range or battery capacities, Chevy seems to have worked instead on the value equation of Chevys electric offerings – something that is needed, since GM has sold enough EVs by now that it is no longer eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit that helps bring down prices for those vehicles. General Motors has said the Chevy Volt is a completely new kind of car, one for which current U.S. EPA fuel-economy tests are ill-suited to evaluate, and that it needs to develop new tests for this emerging class of hybrid-electric vehicles.
