No Bolts In Canada - 12 Month Wait??!!!

Electrek just ran an article on the dearth of Chevy Bolts in Canada despite a demand for them. Link: https://electrek.co/2018/05/18/chevy-bolt-ev-backordered-canada/ What is GM's problem?

Re: Mar 2018 EV sales numbers

from GetOffYourGas: ...Or it could have a "rising tide raises all ships" effect, and help all EV sales by increasing awareness... I really hope it's the "Or" portion of your post. Every person I've talked to who owns an EV, every person I've talked to about the benefits of EV own...

Metric system, was Trip Report: Bakersfield to Grover Beach in a Bolt--Mileage Estimates Off

Reminds me of when I worked in internationalization standards (for computer software). The running joke was "It's like they have a different word for everything ." Metric - the true international standard (based on physics, and born of a bloody revolution). What amazes me the most about t...
