The Chevrolet Bolt UV was launched last year, but it was hit by a catastrophic launch that was interrupted by a huge battery recall and a temporary suspension in production.
The issues are now resolved and Chevrolet is trying to get things back on track with the 2023 Bolt UV. While the model seems largely affordable, buyers will find a new Redline Sport Presence package that embraces a dark aesthetic.
The Redline version is available in three colors – with Summit White, Mosaic Black Metallic and Silver Flare Metallic – and each has a few special touches with a 17-inch glossy black wheel contrasting red accent. They are attached to the mirror caps with red decals as well as black and red “bolt EUV” badges on the rear hatch.

The interior changes are relatively modest, but Chevrolet noted that “jet black leather interior with red accent stitching is available in both LT and Premier trim.”
The Chevrolet 2023 Bolt doesn’t say anything else about the UV, but we shouldn’t expect big changes. As a result, the model probably has a 65 kWh battery pack that powers a front-mounted electric motor that produces 200 hp (150 kW / 203 PS) and 266 lb-ft (360 Nm) of torque. This will enable the crossover to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km / h) in 7.0 seconds and travel 247 miles (398 km) on charge.
While the Botti brand needs to work hard to rebuild consumer confidence, the Bolt UV has a spacious interior with an 8-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.2-inch infotainment system. The model is also notable for offering Super Cruise, which allows hands-free driving on more than 200,000 miles (321,869 km) of compatible roads in the United States and Canada.
