    I liked that they used a first person perspective, so you can see what it would be like if you were driving the Gen 2 Volt.

    Though I’m satisfied with my Gen 1, I might keep an eye on a used Gen 2 in a few years, if I don’t jump straight to a longer ranged EV.

      Still buying the new 2017 Volt!

    If the 85 miles range of current BEV don’t work for pu yet, you could lease the 2016 (aka 2017) Volt now and reserve the model 3 which likely comes out in sufficient numbers in 2 years to get the awesome tesla autopilot and fast charging etc.

    I love winding road reviews. I can feel and hear what it’s like to have an electric car once in a while.

      Eh.. Scratch that – too much talking; I don’t like the talking.

    Nice, BUT, the 2017 Volt is already on sale with 70 mile per hour collision prevention technology, as an option.

    And that’s what you want.

      I just heard on the news that congress just passed a law requiring automatic braking to be installed in every new car by 2022. I figured this would happen. Automatic braking has the potential to save many lives. So if you’re waiting for your favorite EV to get adaptive cruise control just wait a few years and it will be standard.

      ROFL

      Safety features are 110% absolutely useless

      And if you aren’t paying attention at 70mph I dont know what the hell you are doing!

    I was at the Dallas Auto Show yesterday. The Bolt wasn’t there but I did look at the Sonic very closely. Now that I’ve had a chance to really study pictures of Bolt I can see how closely related the Bolt and Sonic are. The wheelbase, track and overall length and width are probably almost identical.

    The cargo capacity of the Bolt and Sonic is also probably identical. The structure of Sonic behind the rear wheels looked weak. Even though the Bolt is classified as a Compact Utility Vehicle, if structure is like the Sonic I seriously doubt the Bolt will be rated for any kind of trailering.

    So if the size and capabilities of the Sonic work for you then the Bolt will also work for you. If you don’t like the Sonic’s dimension and capabilities then you are probably not going to like the Bolt. I have to say that knowing that the Bolt probably won’t have any trailering capabilities has reduced my interest in the Bolt.

    With the Ioniq and the Focus coming out with larger batteries and CCS capabilities, I’m going have to weigh the costs and features of those vehicles against the long range of the Bolt. It’s strange but I really have no interest in buying anything with CHAdeMO.

    Purchasing my FFE made a lot of sense at the time and I have never regretted that decision. The target time for replacing my FFE has always been Fall of 2017. Maybe by the time I’m ready to replace my FFE there be a replacement available that makes as much sense to me as the purchase of my FFE did.

    I like my 2014 Volt. If it wasn’t for the cheap parts GM persistently uses on their cars, I might consider another GM. But after a failed charger, a failed plug, a failed door switch, a failed stereo and a car that flat out refuses to change to daylight savings time, all in 20 months of ownership, I think I’m cured. I’m anxiously waiting to put my name down for Tesla 3.

    1. Fail Cells says:

      The only cheapness i see on my 2017 Volt is the plastic on the rear doors. Not sure why they would cheapen those so much…it really detracts from the whole car.

      The OnStar website is horrible. MyVolt.com is equally horrible. They both look like they are about 20 years old. Hire some real software developers for shits sake GM. I could rebuild it for you. 😉

      I have only had it for two weeks now, and am loving my 2017 Volt. Approaching 500 miles of zero gas.

  7. Fail Cells says:

    forgot to also say, Tesla has its share of quality problems…they are not perfect.

    Very good review, well done. I am looking for a replacement for my 2008 Prius, which served me very well and I still like. In any case I am thorn between the 2016 Prius and the 2017 Volt (as I understand the 2016s are all gone). I just compared the brochures of the two cars and noticed that GM managed to make the Volt bulkier outside, but smaller inside. Wonder why? Still undecided.

  9. Boraski says:

    The Volt is a huge improvement over the Prius. Go take a test drive and you’ll be sold. I am a former Prius owner as well.
