Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2019 Chevy Bolt EV


Hi. I'm looking for what the best hitch would be for my 2019 Chevy Botl EV. Will be using for a bike rack, which I also haven't picked out - so feel free to help me there too! lol. Thank you.

For your 2019 Chevy Bolt EV I highly recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7359, which features a sleek hidden crosstube design that looks great on a new vehicle like yours (see attached images) and also features the only 2" receiver available for your Bolt. This larger receiver just opens the door to many more bike rack options, as the choices can be somewhat limited for the smaller 1-1/4" hitch receivers.

I have attached an installation video on your vehicle that you can also use for reference.

Then for a bike rack I really like the Kuat Transfer # KU74FR that uses ratcheting hooks to hold your bikes by the front wheels without any frame contact and features a convenient foot pedal that you can use to tilt the rack back, with the bikes still loaded, for easy rear cargo access. It can handle 2 bikes that weigh up to 40 pounds each.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this bike rack that you can check out, along with a link that will take you to our complete selection that you can look through if needed.
