I too really like my 2020 Nightfall Grey Bolt Premier (though, not a color I would have chosen in buying a new car). But for me, I absolutely hate the seat since I got it on 5/28.
The dealership was kind enough to drive 46 miles to pick me up, let me test drive it around my city to see if I wanted it (which I did, and we (the guy who delivered the car to me) both drove back.
Well, after only 66 miles of driving, and 26 miles as a passenger (not knowing my way to the dealership, I let the other guy drive), that evening, my lower back was wound TIGHT (I couldn't even get to sleep that night - Damn glad I didn't have it for my 10,270 mile road trip back in 2019).
And, I'm only 5' 9".
Tbh, this problem has me seriously contemplating upgrading when the newer EV SUVs come out (in spite of their safety record, I'm not a fan of Volvo, so the XC40 Recharge was not in the picture) next year.
Luckily, I have a solution that may help you...
Take a hand towel (or even a larger towel), and fold it (for the larger towel, either less folds, or larger folds), and hold it across your lower back, and get behind the wheel.
The folded towel gives a bit of extra lumbar support that I found very helpful when I was driving the company's Toyota Corolla.
