    Chevy Bolt EV Discussion, News, Reviews & Events
    I test drove one a couple of days ago. I've been waiting for the Bolt to replace my i3 (lease up in a few months). The Bolt's driver's seat seemed very narrow with a rigid edge/shell/frame. I admittedly did not spend a lot of time trying to optimally adjust the seat, but after a 10 minute...
