Chevy has changed the heated steering wheel and made a very, very minor change to the specifications of one trim level.

DON’T MISS: Chevrolet Bolt EV\Bolt 2017 Review

The 2018 Bolt EV remains a five-door hatchback that’s rated at 238 miles of range by the EPA, with a base price of $37,495 including the mandatory destination fee.

Its 60-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, housed under the cabin floor, powers a 150-kilowatt (200-horsepower) electric motor that drives the front wheels.

So, about those changes.

The first is that Chevy has replaced last year’s manually controlled heated steering wheel with one that is automatically switched on by the car, based on ambient cabin temperature and other factors.

The second is that the company has deleted the map pocket on the back of the front passenger seat from the intermediate 2LT trim level.

And that’s it. Every other spec and price remains the same.
