2022 Chevy Bolt EUV vs 2021 Tesla Model 3

The newest addition to the Chevrolet lineup, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is an SUV with the benefits of all-electric performance while still maintaining the experience of a traditional gas-powered version. Going up against giants in the all-electric industry such as the 2021 Tesla Model 3, Chevy has introduced a competitive offering. Versatility is a namesake of any Chevrolet vehicle and the 2022 Bolt EUV is as versatile as they come. Denver Metro consumers looking into making a more positive impact on the environment will enjoy getting behind the wheel of a Bolt EUV with its familiar driving style to what they are already used to.


Powered by a single electric motor, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV delivers 200 horsepower to the wheels in a nearly instantaneous and quiet way. All models of the Bolt EUV are FWD only. An innovative feature that the 2022 Bolt EUV offers is called One Pedal Driving. This new system uses regenerative braking to slow down the vehicle and is controlled by the accelerator pedal as opposed to the brakes. This system can bring the vehicle to a complete stop and the energy generated through the system helps extend the mileage range of the Bolt EUV. The EPA-estimated range for the 2022 Bolt EUV is listed at 247 miles. The base Standard Range Plus trim of the 2021 Tesla Model 3 is also powered by a single electric motor. This motor generates 283 horsepower, and the base trim is RWD only. Upper-level trim options for the Tesla are AWD. The estimated range of the base Model 3 is approximately 263 miles on a single charge.

Interior Features

When it comes to making passengers comfortable, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV passes the test with flying colors. Sporting just over 39 inches of legroom compared to the 35.2 inches in the Tesla Model 3, rear passengers will appreciate the extra space to stretch their legs out in. While the Tesla keeps its interior style more minimalistic, the Chevrolet Bolt EUV packs in plenty of convenience with the automatic climate control featuring an air filter for a quality atmosphere inside the cabin.

As for infotainment, the Bolt EUV has features that the Model 3 lacks. For example, the Tesla Model 3 is incompatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 2022 Bolt EUV allows drivers to connect their applicable mobile devices to the vehicle with the above applications for improved convenience and versatility. SiriusXM® radio is also included as a standard feature in the 2022 Bolt EUV which is something that the Model 3 lacks as well. Both vehicles come with Bluetooth® connectivity for safe hands-free driving and additional streaming audio capabilities.

Safety Features

Safety systems and features are prevalent in both the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV and the 2021 Tesla Model 3.
