Chevrolet has released the first image of its next electric model, the Bolt EUV.

The subcompact utility vehicle is a slightly larger version of the current Bolt, which will also be updated next year. Notably, the Bolt EUV gets a three-inch longer wheelbase to provide additional interior space.

The Bolt EUV will not use GM’s next-generation Ultium battery technology, but will be the first Chevrolet model to feature the automaker’s Super Cruise Driver Assistance, which provides hands-free driving over 200,000 miles. of highways.

SUPER CRUISE HAS AN UNMATCHED DRIVING RECORD, ACCORDING TO GM

The system, originally launched on the Cadillac CT6, uses hyper-precise 3D map data, GPS and various sensors to keep a vehicle in its lane while facial recognition ensures the driver has their eyes on the road and is ready to take back control. It will soon also be able to change lanes with a touch of the turn signal lever and will be able to add other functions as the software becomes available.

The updated Bolt, below, appears to have redesigned front and rear fairings compared to the current model.
