If you take note of the current year EV lineup of Chevrolet, you will find it expanded with the introduction of a new electric vehicle portfolio along with purchase EV conversion kits, carrying the same name Bolt, but as an all-electric EUV, that looks more like a redesigned 2022 version of the Bolt EV, rather than a new breed. When we showed our interest in the latest EV lineup of Chevrolet for the year 2022, the senior staff from the La Grange Chevrolet dealership explained to us the following:
Advanced Charging Features
As per their shared information, Chevrolet is all set to make EV charging far more convenient than ever before. For this, the automaker has introduced a new Dual Level Charge Cord feature, to help the customers drop the need to buy a separate charger for their Bolt models if they want to charge them at their homes. This new Dual Level Charge Cord comes with a changeable plug to allow the car user to plug it into a 120-volt three-prong outlet, which is a standard power connectivity option for the Level 1 charging points as well as for the 240-volt outlet which is necessary for the Level 2 charging using up to 7.2 kilowatts.
This new Dual Level Charge Cord system is set as standard equipment for the newly launched 2022 Bolt EUV models and is kept available for the 2022 model year edition of the much-reputed Bolt EV series. This can run at a charging speed of maximum Level 2 since both the EVs of Chevrolet now has become capable of offering 11 kW charging for Level 2. However, to avail of this feature one will have to invest in separate charging equipment which will not be included in the package.
The other most notable feature in both the 2022 EV models from Chevrolet is the Super Cruise package that employs many advanced technology features, among which one will be an advanced Driver Attention System working in tune with the high-precision LiDAR map data. This Driver Attention System will make use of a small camera which will be placed right on the top of the steering column and will work with infrared lights to see the consciousness and attention level of the driver and check where the driver is looking, especially when the Super Cruise is engaged.
The Chevy Safety Assist5 is now made standard on both the 2022 model year editions of the Bolt EV and the Bolt EUV acquiring higher safety standards to avoid even the minimal chances of an accident. These safety and driver-assist technologies, deal with unpredictable road irregularities. But still, the 2022 Chevrolet EVs will stay healthy with features like Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, and Lane Keep Assist to name a few.
Additionally, Chevrolet has also equipped its 2022 Bolt models with new connectivity technologies installation of new wireless Apple CarPlay6 and Android Auto7to maintain phone projection capability, as well as wireless connectivity, assured the Chevrolet La Grange dealer.
