GM has doubled down on EVs even though it was one of the major companies to focus on electric cars. One of the flag bearers of this direction has been its Bolt EV. And now a YouTuber called MooseOBX happened to stumble upon a 2022 Bolt EV which was probably being tested on the road. This is the very same EV GM teased at its EV day even in Detroit before the pandemic fully caused lockdowns in the United States.
MooseOBX caught the Bolt without any camouflage which makes this the first public sighting for the vehicle. At the GM EV day event, the redesigned vehicles the company unveiled included the Bolt, Bolt EUV, apart from the Cruise Bolt which the company had teased a couple of years ago.
GM had also shared somer teaser side images o the Bolt EV which look more like the current line-up. Chevrolet's ambition for this car is of a higher grade than the model's it replaces. It was a higher quality feel to permeate through the car with a cutting edge dashboard as well.
The one thing that this car will not get is GM's new Ultium battery tech, at least immediately. Strange but perhaps, this one is coming so soon that GM hasn't figured out a design for the Ultium batteries so we will need to wait till 2022 for a version with MG's cutting edge battery tech.
