    I Sorta like the EUV.
    Near adult size....and nearly enough range....and something close to adult styling.
    @ $35,000 (no tax kickbacks, thank you very much...) it will be interesting to see how it does with the bottom three quarters of the market.

    Look very nice. If the actual price holds as advertised, I think I may have to put the Bolt EUV above RAV4 Prime for my next car choices.

    Great price to range ratio. Even the extended wheelbase EUV version looks promising.

    With the EV incentives available in Canada, it's a screaming deal.

    In Quebec, it's CAD$29,000 plus taxes (including incentives... EV rebates are applied after taxes so pre-tax discount is $11,300)

    Are new Bolt safer than the old ones? I have been seeing a lot of news about Bolt catching fire and GM issuing a warning not to charge the car in a garage or close to a house. That is crazy.

    The recall only affects 2017 to mid 2019 Bolts.

    I don't remember reading news on Tesla catching fire, but hey, I was never interested in owning a Tesla. Bolt has been and still is a contender on the short list for my first BEV. But with all the news I have been seeing on the Bolt catching fire, I am not so sure anymore. I would rather buy Leaf with short-range and no liquid cooling that may result in early battery degradation than buying a car that is a potential fire huzzard.

    No more crazier than Ford saying so about ICE cars because of a faulty wire harness in the steering column, or Honda with faulty window switches. Most car fires have little to nothing to do with the vehicle's fuel system.
