    The Volt never made sense to me in a rapidly declining sedan market when SUVs are now the largest automotive segment. Now to keep the Bolt competitive.

    Same old Bolt. Dorky styling, no frunk, and the most insulting seats ever put in a retail automobile. It's also a $40K car with a $15K car's suspension, so it drives and rides like an econobox.

    Hard pass.

    I just figured it all out. Being a GM fan is like being a fan of an NFL team that keeps drafting Right Guards, Fullbacks, and Punters in the first round every year. You pretend to be excited by saying "ah, that's a solid pick, he should contribute some snaps on offense next year" while every other team goes out and makes the sexy picks in the 1st every year (the WR that ran a 4.2 40, the mobile QB, the game changing DE)...Players that can change the dynamic of the game. That's what this Bolt is...a Punter drafted in the 1st round.

    IMHO the VOLT ALWAYS has a COST issue in that it packs a full ICE AND a full EV power system in ONE car where as the Prius was designed from the ground up to have as small of a battery possible and reducing the costs to manufacture CLOSER to ICE comparable car

    VOLTEC has the "classic" GM tech issue of being great BUT outpriced in the market GM aims it at
    AN ELR + "volt-cross" with a second electric traction motor in the rear available for sub 50K USD would have made sense BUT chasing the prius around AND insisting it is an EV was GM's mistake

    It was a question taking the technology and applying it to an SUV with a different battery set up.

    Any hybrid has the built in disadvantage of carrying two drivetrains. All the advantages, and all the disadvantages of both, while adding in the disadvantages of complexity, cost, space utilization, and weight.

    And as technology (and charging infrastructure) improves, the ICE component is losing it's advantages, while the EV drivetrain is losing it's disadvantages.
