Is GM Readying An Electric Crossover Dubbed The Bolt EUV?

General Motors has filed an application to trademark the name ‘Bolt EUV’ with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which could indicate that Chevrolet is developing a new, Bolt-based electric vehicle.

A search through the USPTO database reveals that the trademark application was filed on April 9, 2019 for use on “Motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles.” It is assumed that ‘EUV’ is short for Electric Utility Vehicle – and if that’s the case, then a Bolt-based crossover, which may carry that name, could very well be heading our way.

While we don’t know for sure if it’s gonna be an SUV or not, last month’s announcement from General Motors that it was developing a new electric vehicle for Chevrolet “designed and engineered off an advanced version of the current award-winning Bolt EV architecture” confirms that we’ll get a new EV built on the Bolt’s platform. The General also stated that the new vehicle will be manufactured at its Orion Assembly plant, the same site where the Bolt is currently produced.

For what it’s worth, neither GM or Chevrolet have said what form this vehicle could take, but given the demand for crossovers, it seems most likely that the Bolt EUV will be an electric crossover, perhaps targeting the Tesla Model Y. Using ‘Bolt’ in its name will help consumers immediately identify it as an electric vehicle – and if this image, which surfaced two years ago and allegedly shows a Bolt-based crossover, is legit, then we just may have an idea of what it might look like.

General Motors announced in 2017 that it will launch 20 electric vehicles by 2023, and at the time, it was reported that two of these would be based on the Bolt. Details about other EVs in the works are scarce, but at least one of them is expected to be a sports car.

    GM should definitely make the Bolt into a crossover. Given that the Bolt is a subcompact, they should also make a larger compact size crossover entrant to the EV market.

    So I take it they’re preparing to kill the Bolt and replace it with this instead or will this be a China only affair?

    I generally earn roughly $6,000-$8,000 every 30 days through the internet. It really is more than enough to certainly replace my earlier work income, precisely taking into consideration I only just work around 20 hrs per week from a home office.I ended up losing my job after working for the same business enterprise for a long time, I required very trustworthy earnings. I was not interested in programs that promises to make you rich in just few days as you can see online. Those all of them are kind of ponzi mlm marketing systems wherein you have to initially get prospective buyers and then sell something to friends and relatives or anybody to make sure they will be in your team. The greatest benefit of working on the internet is that I am always home with the children and also enjoy time with family on different beaches of the world. Honestly,it is easier than you would think, all you have to do is submit a simple form to receive front line access to the Home Profit System. The guidelines are extremely easy, you don’t have to be a computer whiz, but you should be aware how to use the internet. It is as easy as being on Facebook.
