2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV vs. Its Competition

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV compete against a small but growing number of compact hatchbacks and crossovers, most notably the new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E that electrifies the Mustang badge in a spry and sexy rear-wheel drive crossover SUV with available all-wheel drive.

The budget buy of the bunch, the Nissan Leaf helped jumpstart the EV evolution in 2010 alongside the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid; it soldiers on, with incremental updates that keep it affordable but underwhelming.

Built on the Model 3 compact sedan architecture, the Model Y compact crossover excels at tech and more than 300 miles of range, but lacks the build quality of traditional automakers like Ford and GM.

The Hyundai Kona EV and Kia Niro EV are limited mostly to California and other zero-emission vehicle states, and may be superseded by the forthcoming Ioniq electric vehicle sub brand.
