Also, not to burst any bubbles, but the Nissan Leaf generation 2 will not have the range anywhere near the bolt. I'm not so sure it will be eating into lots of sales. That's just my opinion, but I buy an electric car for its range mainly.
It all comes down to how many people care about range most, and how many - like me - just want at least 140 miles of range in a comfortable
, sophisticated, affordable car. The Bolt has become my "last resort car" instead of being my #1 choice, as it was for a few months, because it doesn't seem to be very comfortable or sophisticated, and the leases are terrible for those looking to eventually buy their car. If the 2018 Bolt comes out in a few weeks with the seats fixed, Surround View offered on the LT, (or the Premiere at least offered with nice comfortable cloth seats), I might actually drive one. I'm not happy pre-ordering a Leaf 2 without driving one, but I at least know the seats won't be terrible and I will be able to get the options I want in the mid-trim SV. I'll also be able to buy the car after leasing it, if I love it.
