Let’s get this out of the way first: “EUV,” or “electric utility vehicle,” is an awful name.

The brand didn’t announce many details about the vehicle, but it did confirm the Bolt EUV will be the first Chevy to receive, General Motors’ partially automated hands-free driving system.

Both the refreshed Bolt EV and Bolt EUV will enter production next summer, so we’ll certainly see the cars before then, likely early 2021.
