Differences come from the form factor. The Bolt EUV offers its passengers a longer wheelbase, more headspace, and higher ride height. It is also the first Chevy vehicle to provide it’s Super Cruise hands-free driver assist feature, allowing hands-free driving along some 200,000 miles of mapped North American roads. Continue reading.
