Everyone in the US Can Now Buy a Chevrolet Bolt


Why wait for the Tesla Model 3?

Chevrolet is trying to get ahead of the competition, with the all-new Nissan Leaf being introduced and the Tesla Model 3 around the corner. As the first affordable long-range electric car, the Bolt is now available nationwide in the U.S. with a starting price of $37,495 including destination. That’s also before federal tax incentives up to $7,500.

Through August 30, 2017, the American automaker has sold 11,670 Bolt EVs this year, and 12,249 since the start of sales in December 2016.

So the article says the Chevy Bolt is now available in the US. They ask the question “why wait for a Tesla 3 when you can buy a Bolt now.” Put the two cars side by side. They are both similar in price but the Bolt is godawful ugly compared to the Tesla Model 3! If it looked anything like the new Volt I would say yeah but the Bolt looks like a box on wheels. No Thanks!

Well, i doubt that most people buying Bolt are doing it because of the looks or should I say more of people would buy them if it looked more like model 3. Besides the looks is a matter of taste and opinion so very subjective. I am sure you will find not that majority but at least some people like the looks of the Bolt better. To me personally, sitting in the box on wheels with pretty much inherent better visibility is much better than sitting closer to the ground. When I drive, I mostly ending up looking at someone else’s cars, not mine 🙂
