I think I will be patient until December 2017.
Negative sir! i shall be faithful to Elon!! lol
It's not that I'm opposed to the Bolt. It's that I need a vehicle I can drive from Denver to Kansas City 2x a year, as well as at a moments notice if need be. Even if there is a CCS charging station along the way, it won't charge fast enough when making a 600 mile trip.
After all the specs and option pricing are available for both the Bolt EV and the Model 3, I will decide which car to get to replace my Chevrolet Volt.
I will consider the Bolt EV if has comparable specs, and a comparable nationwide DC fast charging network.
I think I will be getting a Model 3. But we will see.
I might get a Bolt for fun - no way I would choose it over a Model 3 though.
I think the 3 will be the best Tesla yet!
GM has had a history of running to state legislatures to push Tesla out. I interpret that as GM viewing their product as inferior. I will trust that judgment.
GM and its dealers compete by rent seeking rather than letting the market decide who has the best car and sales/service experience. No GM EV for me.
Maybe.... but I need to know how long it would take to cross the country.
GM has sealed their fate with me. I will never again purchase a vehicle from any company that pours millions of dollars into anticompetitive behaviors as they and their ADA toadies are doing under the disguise of "in the customers best interest". Don't play me, the customer, as a fool.
I just don't like the Bolt, it's a weird looking car, that will probably never be for sale in Louisiana anyway and I certainly wouldn't go out of my way for it. The Model 3's price would have to be way off for me to not get it. My current car has plenty life left on it so if the M3 is late, that just gives me more time to save.
you should use chevy sonic instead of bolt
bolt is clear much worse than sonic and price is 2.5 times higher
For me it really comes down to the right car at the right time. That's pretty much the overriding decision.
The Model S wasn't really the right car, and I knew it wasn't. I got it mostly as temporary thing until the right EV came along. Although now that I've had it for a while it's pretty nifty and is going to be the primary competition of the 3.
The Bolt is just ugly, and I'm tired of those kind of cookie-cutter econoboxes. I get what they were trying to do, but it's like they didn't even try making it look cool.
Plus I've read that they really won't make that many a year. So I imagine it might be harder to get than people anticipate. I am expecting them to sell out of what they make, and it will be positive to the EV movement. The Volt was actually hugely important in the move to get people into EV's. Lots of people traded up from a Volt to a Model S.
I would imagine will see a lot of Bolt owners going to the Model 3/S, and a bunch of Tesla owners having a Bolt as a second car.
LOL, money talks folks! I would lease one in a heart beat for the right money.
As someone told me earlier, Making a car Ugly costs about the same as making it Gorgeous. Or GM doesn't think the Bolt is ugly.
Or they were just using a platform that already existed and shoved the EV guts into it.
I don't know why people keep saying it's ugly. It's not a bad looking car. I'd buy it if there was a charging network comparable to Tesla's for it. Or better than Tesla's, since Tesla doesn't have any Superchargers within driving range of any Tesla to me.
They also didn't think the Aztek was ugly either.
The irony is the same designer (of the Aztek) also designed one of the best looking GM products in the C7 Vette.
So to me it cost less to make an ugly car if he could pull off what he did with a more expensive car. Although I do admit they share some characteristics, but I like the C7.
It's not as ugly as your typical Nissan vehicle, especially the Cube. Or the new Prius which gives me nightmares.
Wow... I guess I'm in the minority.
I'm not really interested in the Bolt EV, but voted to take one, if I end up liking it. However, like the i3 a few years ago, it takes TWO of us at home to make car purchasing decisions and we have to agree.
I thought it would be higher. At the pricepoint and range of the Bolt EV, it's not a bad deal. Besides, I would expect the Federal rebate to last longer for Chevy vs. Tesla.
Hey, there is a market for these so beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
The poll results won't be reflective of the general public views. You are asking whether people will buy a Tesla or GM car in a Tesla forum. We already know vast majority of us would pick Tesla.
