I like them, but feel they look like tug boats up front without a grille. Telsa should have fitted one just for design purposes.

From what I'm seeing on the Internet the Chevy bolt is giving the Tesla model three a run for it's money. If I was interested in an electric car and didn't want to waste the time it takes to get a model three I probably buy the bolt, especially if it was $5000 less like a make it out to be.

i see many many chevy bolts here everyday in a rainbow of colors

theyre nice looking and very quick

easily as quick as the bmw i3 i had with far more range although range anxiety is a non issue for me since like most americans i drive <40 miles/ day

cant see myself buying/ leasing a chevy ... some of the worst run sleazy dealerships and service in the business
