The press service of the American automaker has published a teaser video showing the Bolt electric crossover. The start of serial production of the novelty is scheduled for the summer of 2021.

After Nissan unveiled its Ariya electric crossover and Tesla put the Model Y SUV up for sale, electric crossovers became the focus of all those looking to sell electric vehicles. Chevrolet has long promised to introduce the Bolt EV electric crossover, and finally did it … True, it only showed it partially.

The video begins with the revamped Bolt EV and ends with what GM now calls the Bolt EUV, or “electric car.”

This is another of those attempts to sell the crossover as something unique, just like BMW did with the SAV (Sport Activity Vehicles) model.

Sadly, all that Chevrolet says about its new electric vehicles is that they will go into production in the summer of 2021 and will be the first Chevy cars with Super Cruise smart cruise control with autonomous control features.

Luckily, we know the Bolt EUV is based on the Buick Velite 7 crossover recently unveiled in China. This car will be able to travel 500 km on a single charge (measured according to the NEDC cycle), but the novelty will not use the latest Ultium batteries from GM.

The Velite 7 also gives us an idea of ​​how big the Bolt electric crossover can be. The Velite 7 is 4.26 m long, 1.77 m wide, 1.62 m high and has a wheelbase of 2.68 m. Its curb weight is 1,660 kg and gross weight is 2,092 kg.

This makes the future Bolt EUV slightly larger than the current Bolt electric hatchback, which is 4.17m long, 1.77m wide, 1.60m high and 2.60m wheelbase.
