The Bolt has grown on me, and I've been able to move past it's looks, but not so much with the seats & feel of the interior. Of course, those aren't deal breakers; just the nature of the beast in building a big battery EV on a low budget. I may still end up with one when the times comes to retire my B250e. Perhaps Bolt V1.1 may receive some future interior upgrades...I'm not expecting a Mercedes inside, but a Buick-level interior would be nice. Properly done, I think a Cadillac version of the Bolt would also be a compelling package.
Rumor has it that a Bolt based Buick is on the way at some time in the near future.
As for a Cadillac version, if the ELR is any indication of how Cadillac will handle the launch of such a product, then pass.
What I would personally like to see is a stretched wheelbase to eliminate the slight hump in the battery that exists now so that a more traditional sedan or wagon body can be adapted. Imagine a something like the new Regal's lift back body but with a full electric powertrain. That would make an awesome daily driver.
