What I find amusing about EVs in general is that everyone has to find something negative to say about them. "Oh, well the Model S can only go 300 miles before needing a charge." Really?
The Bolt is a substantial vehicle that opens up electric transportation to a LOT of people. It's roomy, comfortable (at least mine is), got lots of go, and more than enough range for a daily drive. Like Bumnsun, mine's also Orange Burst, and even though it wasn't my first color choice, it is a sharp looking car. What I think got it the negative comments about all the black and chrome is that car reviewers are used to bland cars. There's not much to tell apart a Camry from a Corolla or Versa. The Bolt actually looks like a $40,000 vehicle. The chrome strips, along with the black accents, complement the orange very well. Even looking under the hood or in the door jambs, the metallic paint follows through (even though under the hood isn't clear-coated as it shouldn't be, the metallic is there and isn't just overspray). I really like the lights. The headlights are sharp whether they're on or off. The taillights are instantly recognizable, and you can never have enough side markers. Even the red lenses in the bumper have lights in them that come on if you open the hatch with the exterior lights on. Doesn't anyone like a car anymore that looks different?
Then again, everybody trashed the i-MiEV (Consumer Reports and The Fast Lane car borderline lying in their "reviews"), but I happen to really like mine. I find it funny that one car gets marked as cramped and rough-riding and the other doesn't, but both ride the same and have almost identical dimensions.
