First Chevrolet Bolt Owner Videos Hit YouTube
YouTube channel manager News Coulomb, has started uploading Chevrolet Bolt videos. So far, there are about 10 videos. Each is about 8-10 minutes long and features a few different focuses. The first (above) is simply an introduction of the Bolt. He spends the entire time focused in on the vehicle’s screens, discussing charging and interface, etc.
Three of the five videos are all part of a three part series about a tire fail. As time goes on, there will surely by many more videos popping up. The owner doing the videos provides a lot of information, in an easy-to-understand and somewhat comical delivery. He takes the Bolt on a road trip, after a request on the GM Bolt forum, asking how much you can pack in the back of a Bolt (likely with five passengers in tow).
During his adventure (beginning of TIRE FAIL video 2), he hits a snow covered rock and blows out the passenger-side front tire. Added to this, the OnStar SOS system won’t connect, and he has no phone service. He does point out often the the “parasitic losses” on the vehicle battery are virtually negligible.
No passersby would help him out. Eventually, he had to have some friends pick him up (no idea how he reached them), and he went back for the car the next day, when the snow in the mountains had stopped. The car sat overnight in subzero temps. He drives home with a camera in the back, so that you can see the driving experience.
The final video recaps the “cargo space” request and compares the Chevrolet Bolt to a Ford C-Max Hybrid.
