The Chevrolet Bolt, which debuted with the 2017 model, is Chevy’s fully electric vehicle developed in partnership with LG Corporation. It is available for the 2022 model year in EV (Electric Vehicle) and EUV (Electric Utility Vehicle) models. It is not to be confused with the discontinued Chevy Volt which, Chevy’s popular plug-in hybrid vehicle, which was retired in 2019.
The Bolt won multiple awards on its release including 2017 Motor Trend Car of the Year, 2017 North American Car of the Year, and a listing in Time Best 25 Inventions of 2016. The 2021 model was selected as Best Electric Vehicle by U.S. News and World Report.
However, the Bolt has also garnered plenty of criticism and a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigation. Every single Bolt ever made has been recalled due to a fire risk resulting from manufacturing defects in the batteries. Multiple vehicles have reportedly burst into flames. Bolt owners also frequently complain about defective infotainment systems, unintended acceleration, and problems with the electronics.
