Brad Murren says:

Let’s call this what this car will be.. a great USED car. You have to be crazy to buy this car new. Wait a few years and pick it up 50% off. Use some of that money you’ll save installing your 220 charging unit in the garage.

Jamaican Me Crazy says:

Lol Chevy should have been the Tesla of the electric car world. That even would have sold well.

Ali 1002jj says:

Ev cars are the future cars

simonburkeisable says:

Still the biggest problem is that it’s seemingly aimed at city dwellers but nobody I know has a garage where they could charge it. At my office there’s 2 charge ports at work but that’s it!

Tim Mattox says:

Got my Bolt 2 weeks ago and love it! This is a great review and still minimizes all of the neat features of the Bolt. Got my home charger installed from Amazon in 3 days. Been in a Tesla X and still love the Bolt more. While not as fancy, it has better viewing and is more spacious. With all of the Bolt features I have, the Tesla would be $60k and by the time I got one, the rebate would no longer be available. Go Chevy!!

Asiri Iroshan says:

Thanks for this video. A well detailed GREAT video. Actuall, now I understand how good this car is.

Chris Freemesser says:

Great review. More quality EV efforts like this and the shift towards an electric car world might actually take place.

MrSamsam911 says:

I really like the design in and out for what this car is

Benjamin Francis says:

I think this’ll make a great used buy. At $43k it’s hard to justify but when it gets down to $15k (and it will…pretty quickly) I’ll be scouring AutoTrader for one. I like the look.

TJC450 says:

I too wish there was a sunroof. But EV purists will say “it adds weight”. Trust me I’ll take a few miles less in range to have a feature I want.

Ivan Vojt says:

It’s a CARB Compliance Car & GM is losing money on every one. Why advertise.

FrostFire says:

Great review! Interested in this and the Nissan Leaf, can’t wait to see your review of the new one. Also, HELL YES on the Sleater-Kinney shout out!

Tommy Estridge says:

Those car top carriers will cut down range.

g496r500t says:

You’re a great car reviewer!

netman88 says:

Great video Tom, wish they make a bigger version.

NLDMesa06 says:

Forget the Model 3. How does this compare to the BMW i3 REX?

igeekone says:

The interior is really bad for a $40k+ car. It looks darn right out of a Sonic. Ehhh, at that door panel 5:44 .

Jeff S. says:

I like the new longer format of your reviews. Best of luck with the YouTube venture.

J Segal says:

Looks so good in black- especially with the doodads on the roof. And rush hour with ac cranked is the smartest review I’ve seen for an EV.

LordLauderdale says:

Why drive around with a roof rack that’s not being used and increases energy consumption plus reduces range?

Pete N says:

I have seen one in the local parking lot and it looks cheap and ugly. For 43k, I can pick up a Tesla model 3… No thank you!

Thomas Smith says:

The key to an electric car is: it can’t look stupid. Car companies have one job: It has to look normal, it can’t look stupid

Lavonte A says:

I still love the Chevy Volt

Michael Kirven says:

Great review, Tom. Had a chance to drive one yesterday at a National Drive Electric Week event here in Pittsburgh yesterday. How did you like the front seats, and how’s the ELR running? Thanks!

Peter L says:

Great review.
