    Wow. I was impressed by the Prime and even more so by the Bolt. If you guys have access to one.. check it out. Very impressive car and to drive. I think as PiP we have been early adopters to plug in technology. I actually enjoy the EV experience that the PiP has shown me and also how to be a more efficient driver and the wonders of regen to recapture energy that would have been lost. I love the interior room and capacity of the PiP etc stuff we all know. All i have to say if you like the PiP or Prime you should really try out a Bolt.. I would like to hear how you guys feel after driving it.

    I would love to try/see one. Chevy here (CNY) seems to have little interest in them, but I've seen one on the road!

    Don't have a PiP, but we do have a Model S and the Bolt feels less bulky than the Model S (as you would expect from a smaller car).

    Like the prime, the bolt is on a slow nationwide roll out so nothing here yet from either but I'd like to hear more about your impressions.

    I think I saw at least 5 Bolts here yesterday in Southern California. They're pretty popular. We're interested in one but haven't checked it out yet.

    saw one in the wild yesterday. chatted with an owner here, and he loves it. my concern is hatch space, and i don't need 200 miles.

    check out the bolt teardown thread, someone just scored one for under 20k in cali, plus ttl.
