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)
