So, we have some news that you might not want to hear. According to reports from CNBC and Autoblog, Chevrolet is ending production of their affordable electric vehicles, the Bolt EV and EUV, later this year. Apparently, the company needs to make room at their Orion Township, MI assembly plant for newer EVs that use their Ultium platform. That means if you’re looking for a more affordable EV, you better act fast.
The Bolt EV and EUV were some of the cheapest EVs on the market, even undercutting the Nissan Leaf. They had a decent range–up to 259 miles–and a 65-kWh battery pack. Plus, they had simple controls and plenty of interior space. It’s a bummer to see them go, but we get it – Chevy has to make way for newer models that use the Ultium platform, which includes the Silverado EV, Blazer EV, and Equinox EV.
While it’s sad to see affordable EVs being discontinued, it’s exciting to see what Chevy has in store for us. The Ultium platform promises to be a game-changer for EVs. We’ll just have to wait and see what affordable options Chevy comes up with in the future. For now, if you’re looking for a cheap EV, the Bolt EV and EUV are some of the best options out there – while they last.
