2023 Chevrolet Bolt EUV Premier 4dr Hatchback (electric DD)
Throughout 2022 I was looking for an EV to replace my aging 2014 Mercedes B-Class electric. Other than a short range of 85 miles and 2014-era infotainment this was the perfect car. Any replacement had to meet it's specs, specifically a small hatchback that was on the tall side with space for rear passengers and 50+ cf of cargo with those rear seats down. I was hoping to match the luxury … feel too. I tried not to let price affect my shopping, but realistically $65k was probably the limit. Tesla Model 3, not a hatchback, limited cargo space; Tesla model Y, too long and wide; Mustang Mach-E was still too big, but closer. The Audi E-tron I test drove was slow and was very big. The Volvo C40 Recharge had tiny rear doors and a small unimpressive Infotainment screen. The RWD VW ID.4 was very slow and I read a lot about the software issues. (The AWD version wasn't available when I went for my test drive.) Hyundai Ioniq 5 was ugly and seemed to be all style over function, plus getting one was impossible. Kia Nero and Hyundai Kona were never sold in N.C. I even considered the Jaguar I-pace but getting into the rear seats is very acrobatic and Jaguar seems to have lost interest in supporting it. The Mini-E was too short range. I did not look at BMW's. The Mercedes EQB was not out yet. Which brings me to the Bolt. I had had a 2018 Volt so I knew the infotainment was simple and reliable. The 10.2" screen was taller and seemed bigger than others with a bigger diagonal measurement, like the Ioniq 5. Apple CarPlay was just about a must-have, being wireless was a bonus. The dashboard is really good-looking. Performance is brisk, range is 250+ miles, reviewers complained about slow DC fast charging, but I won't be taking many road trips. The price for the top-trim 2022 model I tried to order from the factory was $44k, but they didn't want to make any more 2022's with Super Cruise. By the time production of 2023's began the price had dropped to $38k (no incentives or rebates available), making it a super bargain. Downsides? Boring exterior styling is a baldfaced copy of a bunch of other similar sized SUV-wannabes. Even the top-trim seats lack adequate lumbar support, but a strategically placed pad fixed that, otherwise it would be a deal-breaker. The open sunroof is noisy, like all such sunroofs. Unexpected upsides? Storage beneath the rear cargo floor is really excellent. I average 4.2 miles per kWh in mild weather, very efficient. Super Cruise works great, and is much more confidence inspiring than Tesla Auto Pilot. Even though SC only works on select interstates, that's where I want it most. The overhead camera view is incredibly useful. You gets lots of light through the panoramic roof glass and the power window shade gives you the best of both worlds. Not sure if it's the tires or what but this is the quietest car I've ever had, smooth riding too. So at 3400 miles and three months of ownership I am still delighted with my purchase. We drive the Bolt over my wife's Tesla Model X most of the time. You can't beat the X for huge cargo volume and the Tesla charging network, but for driving and parking in town it's the Bolt hands down.
