How Bolt EUV Batteries Affect Range

If you’re shopping for an electric vehicle, bolt euv battery size are a few factors to consider when determining which model is right for you. One of the most important is the battery size, as this determines how far you can drive on a single charge. The 2023 Chevrolet Bolt and Bolt EUV come with a 66-kWh battery, which is much larger than the 60-kWh pack used in previous generations of the car.

The EPA estimates that the Bolt can travel 247 miles on a full charge, and in Edmunds’ real-world range testing, we were able to drive 265 miles with our test vehicle. That puts it at the top of its class, though other EVs can go even farther.

When charging at home, a Level 2 charger (the type most people have in their garages) will add about 26 miles of range per hour at room temperature. But at very cold temperatures, that figure will drop to about half.

LG and GM both publish different energy capacity values for the Bolt’s battery pack, with LG reporting a higher “rated” value and GM using a lower “nominal” value. The difference is due to the different ways that energy capacity and power are measured, and is not unusual.

The Bolt’s battery also has a feature that reduces its energy capacity when it is cold, which helps prolong the life of the cells and improve its efficiency. However, this is not a replacement for regular maintenance or inspections. If you notice your Bolt’s range decreasing dramatically over a period of months, it is worth visiting a service center to have a look at the battery.
