Thanx for the good input everyone. After an extended test drive the day before, I pulled the trigger on the Bolt lease yesterday. Very happy with the car so far.

Re: Recommended seat covers?

Reviving this dead thread to see if anyone installed the Wet Okole covers. I may be picking up a Bolt LT this week, if I can find a seat cover with some extra padding to compensate for the thinner padding on the stock seats. If anyone has found a way to make the seats relatively more comfortable (si...

Re: Stupid Transmission question

Thanx evguy and gary. It's making sense now. the electric motor just spins faster and faster as the wheels turn faster and faster.

Stupid Transmission question

This may be pertinent to just the Bolt, or to all EVs. Does the Bolt have any sort of traditional transmission? I mean, does the car shift gears like a conventional auto, or does the drive ratio between the offset gearing and the axles always remain the same? In that case I'd assume as vehicle speed...
