I think he said both cars are good cars and do well in local driving. He was giving his reasons for preferring the used P85D for long distance travel which I thought was honestly presented. No fibbing necessary. Did you even read the entire article? This was for example on Page 2, your comments lead me to believe you didn't yet felt the need to criticize his personal viewpoints.
"(9) My Tesla cost a lot more as a new car than the Bolt EV did: more than $100,000 versus $43,000.
But the Tesla is bigger, more luxurious, and carries almost as much as my mini-van. Still, it was twice what I had ever paid for a car, even though I bought it as a $70,000 Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.
A friend noted that his Bolt EV would be worth $23,000 after this three-year lease ended; I wonder whether Teslas will hold more of their value longer."
I'm not sure what your point is on the Bolt just taking you to certain places. When we want to drive to let's say Walgreens, we ask our Tesla to navigate to Walgreens in let's say San Jose and it pulls up a list of stores. We select one and off we go with directions from the car. Our old Camry with navigation did something like that too but you couldn't speak it but had to type it in. Our Tesla does the same with restaurants, movie theaters etc. How do you think your Bolt is all that different and superior?
BTW if you read the article you would see that he gave his 2017 Bolt to his son so didn't sell it but as he said he simply would rather drive the MS over it especially for long distance trips which he does make and gave his legitimate reasons why.
