    The imaged car is nothing that will appear here soon under the Bolt badge. It may be a mid sized EV which I am guessing will use the the Ultium battery technology platform. I am going forward with a purchase in 2021 or 2022 Bolt EV car. I like the engineering and performance in this vehicle.

    After GM killed the EV1 electric car back in the early 2000's, I think it's hypocritical for GM to now pretend to be a serious EV player. The GM execs were probably paid off by oil tycoons.

    Dear
    followers!! Don't let the beautiful pictures confuse you . Anyone who
    buys a new car from GENERAL Motors the chance you threw your money into
    the trash is very large. In this company there is no customer service,
    the company's management does not care at all, if you have a problem or a
    malfunction, you can only pray to God there is a chance that the help
    will come faster. GM is a very dangerous company, be careful and keep
    your money safe.!!!Share so more people don't get screwed.

    Haha.. I'm not the only one that hates the Bolt's looks!! In fact, it's so ugly they should just rename the next model altogether just so we don't have to suffer from the image of the original which is instantly recalled by the mental association with its name!

    I’ve always loved Chevy products. I had a sonic loved it.
    I wish like you that Chevy didn’t stop making the volt. That was a dumb move. Maybe they could do s-10 ev. Now that would be cool I think.

  6. Jamie Eisenhower

    People need to tell the leader of GM that is getting rid of everything to bring back vehicles and make all their vehicles like a Chevy volt not a bolt with 200 Mi range with 300 mile on gas and make them more stylish and racier instead of giving the market to the foreign companies

    I am approaching the end of my three year lease on my Chevrolet Bolt (bought in New Canaan, CT). I have been tremendously happy with it – it has been totally issue free, and it has massively exceeded my expectations. I have been looking around for alternatives and have tried to get a test drive of a Hyundai Kona EV (but none available in the North East region). During the summer last year, the charge showed a range of 354 or 356 miles (can't quite remember which it was). I am not saying I ever got the full range shown, as I tend to be a little heavy on the accelerator, but having traded in a BMW i3 with a range of 90 miles for this (albeit I did have the range extender in my i3), getting over 300 miles out of an EV is quite magical. If I can't find anything more compelling at a price I am willing to pay, I will certainly be either extending my lease (if GM will allow me) or leasing a brand new Bolt. I should add that I have NO brand loyalty (I think the concept of "brand loyalty" is quite facile), and I come from a family where my Dad and twin brother worked for Ford all their lives, so my vote of confidence in my Bolt is based on nothing but fact.

    I own a 2018 Chevy bowl premier the car is a great car good range but the seats suck very uncomfortable especially if you’re charging your car and you want to sit relax and wait for it to charge!!!😰

  9. TerraMagnus

    Chevy Bolt is almost there. Seats that are more comfortable than church pews would be welcome. But this could be Chevy's disruptive entry into the hot hatch segment if they engineered a performance variant. Call it the "Thunder Bolt". Give up some range for acceleration, plus a handling/braking package, add $10k to base price.

  10. John Davis

    If Chevy would Fix the front seats alone would double the Sales of the Bolt, who wants more range when you cant walk or get out of the dam car after 200 miles……………….

  11. MS Kewinyc

    The Chinese new car looks good! I'd like it to be raised an inch to make it a crossover. However you didn't say the U.S. government hyway safety board would have GM/Chevy to charge the rear because the taillights were all on the moveable lift gate which wouldn't meet government standards. Even the front headlights which I like might not fly in the U.S. also. So there would be changes to what we would see in America which also could be make or break for some people. Good luck GM with the new redesign of the BOLT EV.🤞

  12. Jack

    I wonder if they are building it to meet some quota but don't want to to really take off? A bit like the old EV1 days? I like the Bolt and am looking for one based on various reviews, but seems like Chevy could have put more effort into the car.

  13. Ruben Gamez

    🤔🤔Inwoulp probably pass on this vehicle.
    I still like the idea of having a back up gas engine like the volt. 53 miles is more than enough for most people in most of their daily commute, and I personally do not like the idea of having to use another vehicle for long trips, nor waiting for the vehicle to be recharged. I have owned a volt for over 5 years and only filled up the tank about 10 times.

  14. John Klaus

    I like the looks of the bolt and I think the look and feel of the electronics and physical controls strikes a good balance. The theater seating for battery space is pretty clever.

  15. 487shawn tower

    I never forgot about the bolt ,about 20 000 dollars less than the Tesla and battery density as close to a tesla and any other models as well as range etc and now one of the more proven electric cars!

  16. Mr. William

    I picked up a 19 Bolt for 35k, wife loves it for all of the intercity commute. We average just over 2k miles a month. It definitely makes sense for our family. Thanks for the review.

  17. Jose Vega

    EV's should look more like a normal car rather than a futuristic car like Tesla's. Tesla's look pretty ugly In my opinion. I know I'm In the minority but they all look almost exactly the same. They need new designers.

  18. TechRidr

    Chevy didn't tell anyone about them? On my street, there are 3 Model X's, 2 Model 3s, 2 Model S's and 3 Bolts. I think there are also 3 Volts, one Mercedes Electric, forgot the model and I'm still in a Hybrid, but do have an Electric motorcycle. Maybe it's a California thing, but I see Bolts all over. Not as much as Model 3's of course, but they sell fairly well around here.

    I actually like the Bolt EV looks. It's a cute practical hatchback.
    Seems like be easy to transplant the battery and powertrain into just about anything as long as there is room under the car for the battery. Also they need to update the charging speed, to at least 75kw… 100+ would be better.
    200hp 277trq. Is plenty for just about any midsize CUV.
    I think that spy shot look a lot like the Trax.. which actually sucks inside.. I think has less leg room than the Bolt EV.. which actually has more leg room than the model 3.. but narrower.
    The good thing…. Lots of nice low mileage Bolt EV are for sale now..
    That seems a great deal to me .. as long as you don't need super fast DC fast charging.
