17 Volt owners test drive of Bolt

Finally got my chance to get behind the wheel of a new Bolt at my local NJ Chevy dealer.

I liked the size, shape roominess much more than my Volt. It seemed more quiet and peppy and rode smoother than the Volt. Liked the extra Regen over the Bolt. The interior was a total turnoff unfortunately. Very small uncomfortable seats, cheap hard plastics which looked very uninviting especially without the cheerfulness a sunroof might offer. On the level of an 17k car, not a 43k car.

So for now I will stick with my gen2 Volt until the next gen Bolt hopefully has an acceptable interior.

I am sure getting the range made it tough to get to a price point that is semi affordable but the terrible cheap interior would make me unhappy once the new wore off.

Do you think Bolt sales are not starting with a bang because there is still brand loyalty to Nissan and Toyota? I would have thought a bunch of LEAF owners/leasers would have made the jump. Volt doing well though.
You need inventory to make sales... our county has a population of 1.5million ppl- if you search Bolt inventory in our area you find maybe 15 vehicles for sale scattered between 8-10 dealerships.
Half of those are tagged as "In Transit" and pretty much all of them are listed at full boat MSRP.

Slim pickings with not much variety and expensive to boot.

I looked at one CA dealership the other day... they have 142 Bolts in stock... which is probably more Bolts than all the NY Chevy dealerships combined. With that many Bolt's in stock, you can pretty much find the trim/color you like rather than the choice around here of "that black one right there... or the white one I have coming in sometime next week".
