Chevy Bolt EV Survey Hints At Cold Weather Package With Heat Pump
Earlier this week, new Chevy Bolt EV owner and chevybolt.org user jvandonsel posted about a survey he received from Chevrolet. The options presented in the survey hinted that a cold weather package might be in the works:
I just took an interesting survey from Chevy asking about cold-weather performance of the Bolt and how much I’d be willing to pay for various cold weather packages.
What’s interesting is that this is a peek into some of the technologies that GM is working on or considering working on. Some of the interesting ones from the survey are:
Radiant floor heating
Wiper parking heater
Cold weather battery pack
Heated front windshield
Having only owned my Bolt for a month, I didn’t have much wisdom to impart, but it will be interesting to see how it makes it through its first New England winter. . . .
The survey, which another user posted, also lists heated steering wheels and seats as well as 200 and 300 mile EPA range and varying winter ranges of 150, 160, 195, 240 and 285 miles, as well as various combo packages including more than one of the options, with prices. None of these are guaranteed to appear, although the article notes that a survey last year included a variable charge level, which has now shown up on the 2019s.
