Does the 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV Have Super Cruise?
The 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV is an excellent EV option for folks who want an affordable electric car with some handy features. One feature that a lot of car shoppers want to equip their car with is a semi-autonomous self-driving system, and Chevy does have access to that tech thanks to the introduction of Super Cruise. Here’s a look at whether or not Chevy offers Super Cruise on the 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV.
An overview of the 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV
Currently, the main thing the Bolt EUV has going for it is its price tag. This is because Chevy recently cut the prices of the Bolt EUV by over $6,000. The standard Bolt EUV starts at just $27,000, which is cheaper than the 2022 model year. Besides the price cut, the 2023 Bolt EUV isn’t too different from the older model years.
It still has an electric motor that gets 200 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. This allows the Chevy to get a good acceleration for a subcompact crossover SUV, which can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 7 seconds. Chevy gave the car a 65-kWh battery, and thanks to the Bolt EUV’s high-efficiency rating of 115 MPGe, the Bolt EUV has a max range of 247 miles. It also has fast charging capability and can gain 95 miles of range after 30 minutes of charging.
Chevy offers two trims for the Bolt EUV. There’s the standard LT trim, and then there’s the Premier trim. There are no powertrain differences between the two, but there are differences in what features they have access to.
The 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV has Super Cruise, but only on 1 trim
According to Kelley Blue Book, the Premier trim has some additional luxury features, such as leather seats, rear parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, and more, including Super Cruise. It is an option on the Premier trim, while it’s not available on the standard Bolt EUV. The Premier trim starts at $32,000, and adding Super Cruise to the car will cost an additional $2,200. This means that a Bolt EUV with Super Cruise will cost about $34,000.
Like other semi-autonomous self-driving technologies, Super Cruise is pretty complicated. The most important thing is data, and Super Cruise uses lidar map data, GPS data, cameras, and more, according to Chevrolet. Also, Super Cruise is only available on what GM says are “compatible roads.” When the car is on one of those roads, the driver can activate Super Cruise and let the car drive itself.
But like other semi-autonomous self-driving features, it’s important to remember that Super Cruise isn’t perfect. Drivers should still pay attention to the road and be prepared to take over if anything happens. Chevy even has a driver attention system that ensures drivers still pay attention when Super Cruise is activated.
The EUV has other smart safety features too
Chevy also gave the Bolt EUV other advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, as standard. Every Bolt EUV will come with Chevy Safety Assist, which is a suite of ADAS that should make the car much safer.
Chevy Safety Assist gives the car features like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and more. This safety suite also includes ADAS, such as automatic high beam headlights, which can come in handy in certain nighttime driving situations. The Premier trim also comes with adaptive cruise control.
