I'm not so clear that was GM's advice.
You are correct. Hopefully they update it then!

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV earns EPA range rating of 247 miles
https://www.greencarreports.com/news/11 ... -247-miles

. . . Efficiency ratings for the Bolt EUV are 115 MPGe combined (125 MPGe city, 104 MPGe highway), which is less than the 2022 Bolt EV's 120 MPGe combined (131 MPGe city, 109 MPGe highway). That, in turn, is better than the 2021 Bolt EV's 118 MPGe combined (127 MPGe city, 108 MPGe highway). . . .

https://www.facebook.com/groups/chevrol ... 823474955/ says "The future is all electric. The new 2022 Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV have left the factory and are shipping to a Chevrolet dealership near you."

I also received a marketing email today w/the subject line "(my name was here), the All-New Bolt EUV and refreshed Bolt EV are in production".

As I posted at viewtopic.php?p=604955#p604955, the final remedy for the recall covering '17 and '18 Bolts came out on 5/26/21. So, that means the stop sale can be lifted on all recalled Bolts (all '17 and '18 + subset of '19) once the final remedies are applied.

https://my.chevrolet.com/how-to-support ... ltevrecall has been updated to reflect that and I've seen reports some '17 and '18 folks have gotten theirs done.

I hear rumors on another forum that the update also changes the DCFC curve for older Bolts. Instead of the staircase ramp-down, it is claimed that we will get the more gradual curve, which is probably a true Constant-Current -> Constant-Voltage profile.

I haven't heard anything from Chevy yet about the final fix. When I get it applied, I will be testing the DCFC curve for myself.

The procedure for covering all the recalled vehicles (all '17 and '18 + subset of '19) is up at https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2020/R ... 1-3618.pdf. '17 and '18 final procedure didn't come out until a few days ago and as usual, there's a lag before appearing at NHTSA.

https://www.nhtsa.gov/vehicle/2017/CHEV ... WD#recalls grew from 29 to 34 associated docs sometime today.

https://gm-techlink.com/?p=14834 explains the new DTC and diagnostics.

https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/my-re ... nce.38805/ is the 1st one I've personally heard of where it was identified they will need battery repair (e.g. modules or sections or entire pack swapped out) as a result of the dealer going thru the work for the battery fire recall.
