Drove a Black Bolt Today (last day of 2016)

A Premier editiion with nice alloys, looking much better than previous colors.
There was only one, unsold for a day.
"Someone asking for the Bolt keys again." The desk lady laughed and handed them over.
I took a pic, then got in behind the wheel.

That big ten-inch screen!
Sexy. Cluttered maybe, but still. Bright, neon icons told me this was no ordinary car.
Is this the biggest now short of Tesla's?

Gauge showed 170 green miles of range. Test drives had used up 90. Price was $42,200 before incentives.
I think it still qualifies for a white (ZEV) sticker (green ones for Volt and other PZEV's are gone).

Out in the rain, the tires spun on the asphalt. Too much power/weight, too little traction. Man, this thing zips.
When it's not totally quiet like the Volt, that is. Serious torque that really mocks almost everything once though fast (the 1977 Porsche Turbo Carerra of my youth would get dusted at a full second slower 0-60). Handles and stabilizes nicely due to the low flat battery pack. Lots of headroom for a tall driver like me, very comfy. I didn't want to leave.
Wanted to try Sport Mode but Jeez ... how much more do you need? As soon as I put down the pedal i ran up on other cars too fast. Oh, I like this car.

Ain't no econobox.
No sir.

Want it!

Happy new year
To Chevy and all the new automotive world.

You took a pic and didn't post it? Come on, the rest of the 48 states are dying here knowing we have to wait.
Well, I went shopping virtually at chevrolet's website since I'm nowhere near OR or CA. I'm surprised at how few colors there are for paint and how you are limited to black interiors with some colors or a silver black grill with other colors. I don't think I saw ACC as an option anywhere, but maybe it's buried in one of the packages and I missed it. If I were to get one (I'd probably be more enthusiastic if I didn't already own a volt) I would definitely plastidip all the chrome, and maybe even the whole car.
