    Would be better without all the CGI, but I like it.

    I think the Bolt is going to be a sizeable hit for Chevrolet/GM. I wonder it they'll spin other 200 mile range Ev's off of this platform? Can they scale it up and have something between this and the Tesla S that is perhaps sleeker? Perhaps this drivetrain is what could under pin any Cadillac ELR successor.

    With a bigger version it would have more range, unless the added weight negated most of that added range.

    Bolt will flop. Will do no better than the Leaf, simply because it's JUST an electric car. It brings nothing new to the table and it's too expensive for a car as small as it is.

    The only savior might be a small boost from someone like Lyft who may very well pick up a small fleet of them or other corporate purchases, but that would not be reflective of an organic demand for the product.

    Correction. It won't flop. It will do as well as demand permits, of which there is very little for a $30,000 (after tax credit) compact electric car from a non-premium brand.

    Good thing GM invested in Lyft recently. Coincidence? I think not!

    Okay, but only because it's so much, that even if all three of us share it, after taxes we'll all get $75 million or so and I could parlay mine into a fortune.

    Bad. They should do more of those "Not actors" ads, with the three doors and the ingeniously puzzling question to the dopey civilians: WHICH CAR DO YOU THINK...?

    Strange ad, why were there only two numbers flashed (cargo and range)? Just seems like they should have shared a few more numbers.

    I like this car, it's what I'd buy if looking tomorrow. The darker inserts on the front seat are kind of cool, the way they kind of 'join' the two seats visually. Lots to like here.
