I have had my Bolt EV for a week tonight and I could not be more happy with this decision to make the leap. Over and above my expectations. The two energy screen pictures after my commute this morning. Totally Awesome GM keep up the good work.

I concur. Seeing very similar estimates. Had my Bolt EV almost 4 weeks now.
The highway passing acceleration is nice too.

In 10 years when cars like the Bolt sticker for $25K (2017 equivalent) without incentives, the world will truly be changing forever. But this is the start.

Nice, classy color for your Bolt, btw!

In my test drive I was unable to go from L directly back to D. I just landed on N when I pushed the shifter "up" toward D. Found out you simply pull the shifter back again to go from L to D )could not find that nugget in the owner's manual). I liked the 360° view for parking. The car handles well, lots of room, lots og "go" power. One pedal driving and Regen paddle are very nice. Enjoy your car! :)

The reason the shifter is designed that way is to ensure different actions are required for shifting to "N" vs. shifting to a powered mode. Otherwise it would be too easy to accidentally end up in "N" when you tried to shift from "L" to "D", forgetting that you were already in "D" mode.

I only stay just under 10 miles over the speed limit all back roads for my commute.

So Chevy is continuing their tradition of "under-rating" their EPA numbers. Excellent news.

137 wh/mile?!?

Are you sure you weren't behind the car pushing? ;)

That's really impressive. Even factoring in charging losses, that's well over 200MPGe.
