Chevy Safety Assist
The Chevy Safety Assist suite is a collection of intelligent safety-minded driver-assist technologies that use radars and cameras to detect dangerous situations while you’re driving.
Arguably, one of the most safety-improving of these technologies is the forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking. This system looks at the road ahead to warn you of a potential collision between your Bolt and the vehicle you’re following. If you don’t react in time, the automatic emergency braking system kicks in to apply the brakes for you if you’re traveling at 50 mph or lower. The front pedestrian braking system works the same way, looking out for people walking on the street ahead of you.
When you’re traveling at highway speeds, the following distance indicator is a helpful reminder for you to follow the vehicle ahead of you at a safe distance. It displays the gap in seconds so that you can make adjustments to find that safe three-second minimum range.
The lane keep assist system with lane departure warning reads the lines in the road to help you maintain your course. When you begin to drift out of your lane, this system makes small steering adjustments to center your vehicle again. If you turn your turn signal on, the system allows for lane changes.

You can choose your 2022 Bolt EV’s level of luxury by choosing from its two trim levels: the 1LT or the 2LT. Upgrade to the 2LT to outfit your Bolt with luxurious leather-appointed seats for a boost in both style and comfort. The eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat lets you configure the Bolt’s seat to better fit your body.
