They had been popping up on cars.com lately so I decided to take a Sunday drive over to the (closed) dealership to look at a Bolt in peace (and hope the car was accessible on the lot).

It was -- parked right out front. Still had the plastic all over the seats. Kinetic Blue.

Obviously couldn't get into it, but will share first impressions of the walkaround:


  • Very tall--taller than expected
    More "attractive" in person--although not a car I ever wanted in terms of style (very subjective of course)
    Kinetic Blue a good color for it
    I like the chrome accent lines on the top of the windows and the chrome on the bottom doors--breaks it up a bit
    Reminded me a lot of the Trax a few cars down
    Certainly didn't "jump out" in any particular way in terms of style or "hey, I'm an EV!"
    Space seemed "cavernous" looking in--especially the front. The seats were tilted back a bit, so rear leg room did not look great, but hard to tell without going inside--this is different than everything I've read and seen online so it was probably just the angle.
    It is definitely the design of "right now." While not a fan of SUV-lite styling, I see many, many vehicles on the road that look like this and know many people who like this kind of vehicle so understand why GM went this direction.
    I liked the rims
    Was trying to figure out a way to make it more aggressive, came up with nothing
    The Red '17 Volt near it looked more upscale and appealing (just my opinion)

Thanks for sharing. We like our Trax. So maybe if Gen II comes out with AWD and the range stays good in the winter we could get one.
