The efficiency is better, but the range stays mostly the same.

The new, refreshed Chevrolet Bolt EV from 2022 model year has recently received its EPA official range and efficiency rating.

The results are not much different than before, as there were no big changes in terms of hardware.

As we can see, the efficiency is a little bit better in the new version in all categories, by 1-3% depending on the category.

However, because the battery is smaller (GM says 65 kWh compared to 66 kWh previously), the EPA Combined range is the same at 259 mi (417 km).

What is interesting is that the EPA City range of 279.8 mi (450.2 km) is marginally higher than before by 2 miles, while the EPA Highway range is nearly 2 miles lower. That's might be due to the slightly different aerodynamics of the front.

Anyway, no significant changes would be noticeable from the user perspective on a daily basis.
