The all-new Chevrolet Bolt EUV hits the track at Yas Circuit, in collaboration with EV Lab
MIDDLE EAST – The all-new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV hit the track at Yas Circuit, turning heads with its sleek good looks and changing the outlook on going electric with its fun-to-drive features. Organized by EV Lab, the event introduced the community to electric vehicle technology through a hands-on driving experience and a showcase of the latest and greatest in clean and innovative automotive technologies.
Chevrolet and Bin Hamoodah Auto, Chevrolet’s official dealer partner in Abu Dhabi, sent two Bolt EUVs to the event, to encourage discovery and satisfy curiosity. With a vehicle in the display case, guests got up close to the vehicle, exploring the sleek exterior and spacious interior, guided by EV Lab experts. Attendees drove the second vehicle onto the track to experience fun-to-drive features of the Bolt EUV, such as One Pedal Driving2, which allows the driver to speed up, slow down or come to a complete stop with just one pedal and Regen on Demand, which converts kinetic energy into stored battery energy by simply pulling a steering wheel-mounted paddle. Completely unique to electric driving, these features delight new EV drivers and set the Chevrolet Bolt EUV apart as a game changer in the region.
“We found that nothing convinces a driver to go electric quite like getting behind the wheel and going for a spin, so that’s exactly what we did. Working with key partners like EV Lab is essential to familiarize and engage people with the next wave of mobility,” said Sharon Nishi, director of marketing, GM Africa and Middle East. “The Chevrolet Bolt EUV is an exceptional vehicle, directly addressing common concerns about the transition to electric with its long-range battery, wrapped in a dynamic and sporty SUV body. This is a game-changer by democratizing electric vehicles and providing a viable, everyday option for drivers in the region. »
“We are always looking for new ways to deliver exciting Chevrolet-powered experiences to our Abu Dhabi customers. The Bolt EUV is a vehicle that stands out, and through this partnership with EV Lab, we were able to put customers behind the wheel to experience it for themselves and convince even the most passionate people that electric driving is fun and viable. for daily trips. We look forward to working more closely with important partners, in order to continue to provide exceptional service to our customers in Abu Dhabi,” said Ayman Al Bijawi, Director of Sales and Marketing – Bin Hamoodah Auto.
