Hello from SE Michigan. I reserved a 2022 BoltEV LT2 two weeks ago at a local dealer. Cherry Red Tint coat and nothing else. TheLT2 trim level pretty much adds any and every thing you could want. According to an option list my sales person gave me "Wireless Charging for Devices and Adaptive Cruise Control" are available options. Their order code numbers are K4C (wireless charging) and KSG (Adaptive Cruise Control). In another post that I replied to I mentioned that a neighbor is a contract GM engineer and he is currently test driving a 2022 production built Bolt EUV. I had a short time sitting in it and talking to Anthony. If the BoltEV is anything close to the EUV I'm going to be a happy camper.

Cool beans. Thanks again for sharing. When do they expect to get you into the 22? I asked locally (MD), and they don’t anticipate the EUV to arrive until July over here.

Welcome to the show! Hope you love your new car, and that it arrives soon! Phsew. I don't think I could wait for a pre-order, haha.

MDBolt and pinkhatter, No promises from the dealer. They told me on the day I reserved that Orion had started production. Their thought was since we're only about twenty miles from the plant maybe June sometime. My current lease is up in late June so that would work out nicely. pinkhatter, Cherry Red replaces Cajun Red. As for the wait, right now it's no big deal but by the end of next month I expect that I'll be getting antsy.

That's great news that the Adaptive Cruise Control will be an available option on the BoltEV LT trims.
I will be tempted to upgrade sooner than I had anticipated.

Congrats Scott. If ascertainable from your neighbor test pilot, find out if the EUV offers roomier driver seating comfort over the EV. I know specs for front row are the same but hoping EUV, being wider, offers a bit more lateral room.
Not easy to snap in the seatbelt being so tight against the center console now.

Regardless, you’ll probably be the first on here with a 22 in hand. Looking forward to tour future posts, they’ve certainly been very informative.

Wider? The specs seem to indicate the car is 0.2 inch wider, nothing more.
I doubt it will ease your pain...
That’s what I’ve read as well, in terms of actual dimensions. One reason for hope, though, is that by all indications the seats themselves have been redesigned. I’ve seen a couple of YT reviews where they comment on the seats as being noticeably more comfortable than the ones we have currently.

Thanks for an actual answer and not being snarky about it.
I will definitely do a seating and seatbelt snap-in test when the time comes. Actually ok with 2020 seating now, just wish the belt buckle sat a little higher. I do not have petite hands.

Hello Scott, what other options are available for the LT2 trim of a 2022 Bolt EV? I'm trying to find a brochure for the 2022 Bolt EV but there are none available. My buyback coordinator let me order a replacement Bolt for my 2017 recalled Bolt from the nearest dealership but when the order person input my replacement model and options he told me the 2021s are built out and mine will have to be a 2022. I wanted the Oasis Blue color but like you mentioned the 2022s have a different color nomenclature. Cherry Red Tint Coat (is the old Cajun Red) Intense Blue (Kinetic Blue) Ice Blue (Oasis Blue) etc. The only option he asked me if I wanted was the adaptive cruise control which I turned down because I was trying to keep the replacement Bolt as close/similar to my 2017 Bolt to avoid any delays in the process. I have been waiting for a month and a half for the replacement/buyback process to play out so I guess my patience paid off finally. Like I mentioned in my other post, be patient and nice to your buyback coordinator they are doing the best they can to handle 50,000 Bolt owners.

To all that have replied to my original post I can only say I am overwhelmed. I had expected a "nice job or welcome to the electric world" but you people are warm and open. I hope as I learn more I can share my experiences with all of you. Now, just to be clear, the options I have listed are from a dealer printed list of options for 2022 Bolt EV. I reserved (now a confirmed order) a 2022 Bolt EV with LT2 trim level. The only option I asked for was the Cherry Red Tintcoat paint. If you want color options for the 2022 model I can list them in another post. For Firstbolt, the list of included options is quite long but I can list them if you want. Many are just upgrades to the LT1 level trim option package. Things like leather seats in place of cloth. Some things from the previous model are gone (rear view camera mirror for instance). Jax, According to Anthony, NO difference in size between Bolt EV and EUV as far as front seat width. Most of the room is in the legroom in the rear passenger seats. He says the new seats are much better than the previous models. I will offer answers to any question I can but be advised, if I'm not sure, I won't answer. In other words I'm not an engineer and if it isn't printed on my paperwork I won't have the information. I don't believe in pushing out rumors or guessing. I hope I'm not rubbing anyone the wrong way but, I'm very new to electric cars and learning like many of you.

Scott
P.S. For Colt Hero, Reserving a 2022 Bolt EV or EUV if you order and get your 2022 Bolt before the end of June 2021, Chevy will arrange and pay for a level 2 circuit for a 240 volt charger install. It can't hurt and I've wanted one of these little cars for a while now.

I must say I'm a bit envious of adaptive cruise control. Also I think the new bolt kind of looks like Iron Man War Machine, at least in silver. Which is cool.

Is the EUV wider? I thought it was the same as the EV.

I have three kids in the backseat, one of which is in a car seat. They are a little cramped in the EV, I was hoping to get them an extra inch or two, but last I read, the car is the same width. Is that width just wheelbase, but the actual interior is wider? I have been looking at pictures but just cannot tell.

Just to be clear. These options are in addition to items included in the LT2 trim package.
