      I wanted an electric car, went to the Chevy dealership Several times. All they said was they did not have any. Even when I found both ( the volt and bolt) on the lot, I was told only certain ppl can afford them. Smh. That dealer ship lost a sale.

      Is it okay to always charge it to its max every time you’re at home? I’ve heard many different things about the longevity of the battery.

      GM states that you can top off the battery as much or as little as you would like. It can be part of your daily routine.

      Greetings from Baltimore. My 2019 Chevy Bolt EV is simply the best car I've ever had. I haven't been excited about a car since '88 (Acura Integra), but I'm excited about this one. Never going back to ICE cars. My sole detractor is the logistics of charging. Living on the third floor of a condo means home charging is not an option, so the logistics of charging in public can be taxing.

      I am 73 years old. I have owned and driven a wide variety of cars, trucks, motorcycles and Hot Rods. I love my '18 Bolt LT. First of all it's an exceptionally well built and solid car. Everything moves in unison, no rattles, no squeaks, no vibrations and no noises. Secondly it's response to the go pedal is instant and quick. The whole regenerative thing is a blast. It's a peppy, fun ride that makes my day.

      My gf bought a tesla model 3 lr awd in december 2018. There is nothing like evs especially the tesla. I find more and more that the user interface in all other cars ev and ice is clunky, stupid, and poorly designed, including the bolt. Not to mention that the bolt from what I know has no navigation which for meal makes a car useless in this day in age. The teslas navigation from most who have used it, will say it is the best on the market. Best screen size and image as well as the superiority of the user interface for that also. Then tesla has the supercharger network which is the best maintained and most reliable one out there. All the other evs are lacking severely without such a network. Price or not, for now I do not see any other ev purchase for any where near the price to be worth it. Remember that the bolt is sold at a loss for gm which does not make it sustainable for gm or anyone else who makes a car like it. The other manufacturers need to invest in a battery factory and get off their duff if they are going to survive and compete.

      Google Maps tends to be kept more current than on-board nav systems, hence the choice to rely on projections from cell phone apps.

      As for charging networks, well, ICE car manufacturers don't need to own oil and gasoline companies, and thus EV manufacturers don't need to own charging networks. There are several charging networks that fill different market segments, and they are building more all the time. ChargePoint, for example, has many Level 2 chargers for drivers spending the day at work or at a destination, or overnight at a hotel. EVGO, for example, concentrates on DC Fast chargers for charging during meal breaks on longer trips. With the PlugShare app all the charging networks appear on a single map, so anyone can plan a route.

      And finally, most EV drivers charge their vehicles at home while we sleep, something ICE cars can't do.

      Thanks for the video. I own a 2013 LEAF. Approaching 6 years and 70K miles. Only lost one battery life indicator bar so far. My daughter is interested in my car and I'm interested in more range. That is what draws me to the Bolt. My car is charged by solar panels on the house so the expenses for my electric car are extremely low. I will always be a 100% EV driver from now on. I did the half way house thing with a Prius before getting the LEAF.

      Have a Volt. Love it.
      I assume the Bolt also has "sport" mode...which works very well in the Volt.
      I am not driving the Volt through the winter because, in addition to having a current job location the same distance away as a full charge, I just don't want to salt it up. So I drive a Buick through the winter.
      My upcoming job assignment, however, is at a company location that has a level 3 charger.....so...I will have to get a Bolt so as to avoid ever having to buy gas or charge it at home. The money I don't spend on gas (or charge) will keep the car payment around the current level (after I sell the Volt).
      Now I have seen some other EV's that look good, most notably the Kia and Hyundai ones.....but no real great price point or history I have solid info on. The Teslas are expensive as heck, if you get normal option packages. And you, the buyer, has no ability (and are not allowed) to get repair parts nor fix them. If you attempt service and Tesla finds out, they'll turn features off in your car and can void your warranty with the press of a button. I don't like the idea of that...I know if I buy a Bolt, and need something, I can go to the dealer, get the part, and replace it. The other problem with the Teslas, that I have seen, is that you will need to replace a drive unit or two under warranty, and I haven't seen that type of service requirement on other EV's as of yet. Invoices I have seen were over 20000$ for a Tesla drive unit replacement if done after the warranty is up.
      Aside from replacing tires and adding washer fluid, the Bolts appear go and go. "News Coulomb" has a bunch of Bolt demo videos...

      Why do Dealerships always get Level 2 chargers? Which means, the Bolt will take 9 hours to charge. With a Level 3 charger, the Bolt will only take 45 minutes to charge. If you are going to sell EVs, you should be up to date with charging.

      Unless there is a huge number of miles driven on test drives at a dealership in a given day, overnight charging at level 2 should be fine. But as a buyer, DC fast charge capability is an option worth getting, as it cannot be added later.

      2018 Bolt LT (8 months); Everything you said I agree 100%. I started driving it like a traditional car then started using the paddle after 2 weeks, then the L mode and Sport mode after a month. When I press the on button I set it to Sport and L and also use the paddle when I need to stop a little quicker. The ride is very smooth and quiet. However the quick/instant acceleration is my favorite part. Great video!

      I don't feel much difference using Sport mode but someone said you get better range because you don't have to press the accelerator as far? As for range, I live in Southern CA and I get 4.4 per kWh for 50% local 50% highway (65-70mph). Starting in Jan I had to use the heater at times (set temp to 74) and kWh reduced to 4.0 kWh. When not needing heat I set the temp to 69. My AC/Heat button is always on.

      Have had a 2017 Bolt for almost a year. Absolutely love it. The one pedal driving is fantastic. In town (Fort Myers, FL), get nearly 300 miles on a charge (no heat or A/C). On highway, depending what speed, quite a bit less. At 75 miles an hour, got only 175 miles. Just got back from Orlando and took back roads. Didn’t exceed 55 miles an hour. This was the sweet spot as got good range, about 230 miles. This is a great car. Well built and solid. We like the exterior and interior (have the premier trim). The 360 view and rear view mirror camera are great and wouldn’t buy a new car without these. Wish adaptive cruise control was an option as we consider this a safety feature. Seats are comfortable, although good I am not a large person as they are narrow. Nice video, by the way.

      Thanks John, and glad you are loving your Bolt. Getting towards that 300 mile number is Great! That's why I like driving the Volt so much.. Everyday I am trying to achieve the most distance I can. In Jersey traffic in the morning I can drive 7/8 miles and only drop 1 or 2 miles on the battery. The most we've done is a consistent 64 mile range in 60/70 degree temps with no climate control on.

      Dave I was just about to leave you a Facebook comment requesting a Bolt video! I'm glad to hear they're roomy enough for tall guys, but what do they say about the longevity of the car? The range could cover my daily commute on a single charge but I put a lot of miles on annually, so I'm just wondering how long the car would last? Do the electric motors last longer, so it would just need battery replacement in a few years?
