    Tesla may have been able to go back to back with the Model S....but they refused to give C&D a car to test....what?! Why would they do that? Not like there was another EV with 200 miles of range half the price of the Model S avail-----oh wait, nevermind. It makes sense now. ;)

    *yawn* And because of the outright lie in the first paragraph, that's as far as I got.

    I still have a subscription to C&D but I find myself flipping past more and more of their articles. In most of them, they're still stuck on gushing over engine sound, critiquing turbo lag, lamenting the death of stick shift, these gets more and more boring every year.

    I can't honestly blame them for not having Model S since Tesla didn't give them a car. I'm ambivalent about the Bolt. On one hand any EV is better than an ICE, on the other hand, GM.

    And that too is a form of whining.

    Think the Bolt will get on that list another year? The article didn't seem enthused by it. The tone I got from their article was they put it there because it was an important car -- as the first 200 mile EV that isn't a Tesla, and it is priced decently. They did comment that it felt more like a 20k car than a 30k car.

    I predict the Model 3 will be appointed to to match it's price, and will be a tremendous value compared to other cars, particularly other EVs.

    One comment posted about the article...may be closer to the truth than not :p:

    "
    Staffer: Hey Elon, C/D wants us to send them an S for their 10 Best Comparo!


    Musk: Sure. Why not. There's no real competition in the voltage market, right? So how can we lose? Just make sure and run the diagnostics on the door software before we send it out, so they can get into it.


    Staffer: Ummm...eh...I heard it's going up against an under 30K little Chevrolet this year.


    Musk: (Sweating and shaking uncontrollably in anger) A thirty thousand dollar Chevy? Tell Alterman to piss off. Where we're going, Mars, you won't need roads."
