The Bolt EV has a little more passenger room than the LEAF but less hatch storage. On the other hand, the rear seat folds flat whereas early LEAFs had problems with that but I think was improved for today's LEAF.I think we had these numbers before but it's great to have them where you can compare them easily. A little larger than the Volt but smaller than the Model S and the Nissan Leaf. In truth a lot depends on how usable the space is. Presumably the space in the Bolt EV is quite useful. Interesting that it's smaller than the Leaf. The Leaf wasn't very comfortable in the back seat but did have a large well in the trunk which wasn't that useful. It could carry a lot of stuff.
The CCS network is growing faster than most people think. The link provided on fueleconomy.gov is pretty good but plugshare is still more up to date and has more locations listed yet.Thanks for sharing. And using the "find charging stations" shocked me, there are TWO PUBLIC DCFC stations within 5 miles of my house here in Swansea IL. I was unaware of that and both are within ONE MILE of Interstate 64.
The actual space configuration is important. I literally couldn't sit in the back of the Model S when it came out. Plenty of leg room but the lack of headroom was insane. I had to hold my head at a right angle.From memory, the LEAF passenger room is about 92.4 cubic feet and Bolt EV is 94.4. The Bolt's hatch area is 16.9 and the LEAF's is around 23. Everyone who has been in the Bolt back seat seems to say it is roomy and comfortable.
I had the same issue with the Volt, which is why I'm not driving one and am now anxiously awaiting the chance to take a Bolt EV for a test ride.The actual space configuration is important.

I solved this by getting an ELR, which has no back seat to speak of. LOL Headroom in the Volt was OK for some, and I don't sit in the back of my own car, but the lack of legroom made it suitable only for shorter drives if you planned on taking passengers.I had the same issue with the Volt, which is why I'm not driving one and am now anxiously awaiting the chance to take a Bolt EV for a test ride.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed. My tiny little Prius C has far better rear seat accommodations than the Volt. The Bolt is barely larger on the outside and I'm hoping that it will be at least as big on the inside. I already know that it's turning radius isn't as tight as the Prius C, but I can easily live with that if everything else is up to snuff.The rear headroom on the Volt, Model S, and a few other cars seems to be lacking. Luckily, the Bolt looks to remedy that.
