    I totally get why people love Tesla Model 3 more, what I dun get is why Chevy Bolt is getting so little attention. It is a great EV, especially considering how faster GM is able to produce it. What do you think? Let me know in the comment below!
    The tick for looks should be for Tesla, didn't realize until I saw some comments!

      absurd. *THERE IS NO MODEL 3 FOR $35,000*
      the average selling price is into the $50,000 range _(can purchase almost 2 Bolts)_
      and some model 3 cars, with everything are priced $80-90,000 _(or almost 3 Bolts)_
      increased price means increased battery at a minimum
      it is getting to the point that it is like comparing a Ferrari to a Ford Mustang
      the GAP is too great!

      Olivier St-laurent when there's several hundred thousand model 3 's out there......you'll be waiting in line 12 hours to get your 30 minutes charge....LMAO....AND ON THANKSGIVING AND FOURTH OF JULY.....PULL IN FRIDAY TO GET CHARGED ON MONDAY.....

      Overall tesla is a better machine. It has better range, better customer support, it`s faster, better looking.... Is Chevy Bolt an EV that should be respected? Well, i guess yes. At least is the only EV besides Teslas` with a decent range to be respected as a total functional car. But if both were available what would i chose? You know the answer, as anybody else around knows.

      I am disappointed with your opinion. There is more than just specification to make comparison. GM (and others) will destroy EV market as soon as they have a chance (like killing independent ev companies like Tesla and dominating ev market). Because gasoline vehicle industry is and always will be more profitable than EV due to after sale and side industries. One car is made for profit by a gasoline giant, other is made by a man who wants to save the mankind (literally). Musk has used almost all his wealth for space and clean energy. GM and other did not and will not.

    Incorrect video - charging infrastructure for Bolt is horrible. Most stalls for DC QC are not online to see if they are occupied, or iced, or broken, or standalone - much less, the fact that there are 1,000's fewer SAE stalls than superchargers. Entirely neglecting this, and calling it a tie totally negates any value of this video. Without a Tesla style / multi stall / web interface (to identify available stalls) quick charging capability - & the fact that the model 3 charges about 3x as fast as a Bolt? Unbelievable .... sorry - but the anemic quick charging infrastructure that the bolt must rely on, & all manufacturers outside of Tesla not being willing to fund such a massive refueling project, you might as well have a decent gasoline car with no gas stations. This video entirely neglects those most crucial aspects - which is why other great electric cars will only reach mediocre volume. No infrastructure? No Deal. Without infrastructure like the superchargers? All you have is a golf cart type car - because it can't quickly cross from state-to-state reliably.

    Volt uses less gas than Tesla, Nissan Leaf or Chevy Bolt

    state of California gives a larger rebate to Tesla owners than to
    Chevy Volt owners because the Tesla is a “Zero Emission” car. In
    reality the Chevy Volt is closer to zero emission than the Tesla.

    may not make sense to you so please read on to see my reasoning.

    an owner of three different Chevy Volts Plug in electric / gas hybrid
    cars since 2011, I can affirm you that my experience with those three
    cars and my experience with the Chevy Volt is that they use much less
    fossil fuel (Gas) than Tesla, Nissan leaf or Chevy Bolt. This may
    sound as an absurd statement but if you let me explain to you why,
    then it may make more sense,

    a person owns an all electric car (Tesla, Leaf, Bolt) it is never a
    primary car. The owner must own a second car as the primary car. This
    is usually a regular gas car that in the long run it uses much more
    fossil fuel than a Chevy Volt. In other words
    total fossil fuel usage for this household is much more than that for
    a person who owns a Chevy Volt. The
    Chevy Volt for this household is the primary car (no range limit) and
    there is no need for a second (more long distant) reliable car. Also
    should note the environmental impact of owning two cars over one car
    which would include parts that needs to be replaced and those used
    parts will eventually end in the dump, 4 additional rubber
    tires to care for, oil changes, transmission oil, brake pads, tune
    ups, cost for the additional insurance etc.

    soon as a person purchases an all electric car he develops a (RAD)
    anxiety disorder, it is a disease I invented in my head to explain to
    you how a new owner of an all electric car starts to thinks shortly
    after purchasing the car ( sort of similar to buying a Boat: as the
    saying goes: the two happiest days in a man’s life is the day he
    buys a Boat and the day he sells it). Most of the general public
    (even most owners of the Chevy Volt) are not aware of this “RAD”.

    an owner of a Chevy Volt travels any distant he will always be going
    from point A to point B.
    an owner of a Tesla, Leaf, Bolt travel any distance that is close to
    the 50% range of the car’s battery capacity or more, he or she no
    longer can travel from point A to point B. It will always will be
    point A to point C. The reason is point B will HAVE TO BE a
    to use some form of a commercial charger thus diverting from A to B
    path (travel distance increased so is the fossil fuel usage) and the
    commercial charger uses of (fossil fuel) to charge the car. Example
    if a Tesla owner lives in Pasadena, Ca.
    to visit relatives in San Diego, Ca.. This Tesla owner will be very
    apprehensive that his or her car my not make the round trip and they
    could get stranded somewhere in between putting their life on the
    line. They have to stop at some Tesla charging station in between to
    get the Tesla charged or the battery switched while the relative who
    lives in San Diego will use their gas guzzling (fossil fuel) car to
    pick them up at the Tesla charging station to bring them to
    their house and when they are done visiting, this relative will have
    to take them back to the charging station using the same gas guzzling
    car, that is four trips. When owners of an all electric car taking
    any extended trip they must be on their toes learning and knowing the
    whole network that they can use to recharge their car (Point B to
    point C). If those charge stations are busy charging other cars then
    they must wait possibly buying foods and drinks (that used fossil
    fuel to make, and produce more trash to fill landfills). If the car
    is completely discharged then they will have to stay at a hotel
    overnight, because those All- Electric cars can take as much as 18
    hours to fully recharge. Boy think about the amount of fossil fuel
    used to keep a person in a hotel overnight,
    to operate AC / Heater, watching TV, hair drying, washing sheets and
    towels, laundry, food and the trash generated by such a one night
    stay. They also will need some form of transportation from the
    charging station to the hotel and back (more fossil fuel).

    all electric car companies may use sells gimmicks like DC charging
    where you can get quick charging in a short period of time. I say
    nonsense, you have to find a charging station with such a DC charging
    capability and hopefully there is nobody else ahead of you waiting to
    use it. Some people might thing in the back of their head that some
    hotels may have a one or two charging station for customers to use, I
    can guarantee you that those charging station will charge you an arm
    & a leg (more direct and indirect fossil fuel use) before you
    charge your car. In other word they: CHARGE LOTS OF MONEY TO CHARGE
    YOUR CAR. My experience with hotels chargers is that they either
    don't work or you can not charge your car with them (Tesla requires a
    special charger). If Tesla owners think that they can knock on
    peoples doors and ask them if they would allow them to use their
    electrical outlet in their garage to charge their car while they are
    sitting in their car, they better think again. It is not only
    unpractical, not workable and damn right dangerous. In some areas
    around the country if you knock on peoples door to recharge your car
    then you could end up on some TV true crime show.

    I was a child my father told me the following saying “Good
    health is like a crown on the heads of healthy people, only sick
    people can see”. Chevy Volts drivers wear a crown (No Range
    Anxiety Disorder) only owners of Tesla, Leaf & Bolt drivers can
    see this crown.

    state of California calls those all electric cars as “Zero
    Emission” while in fact they
    directly or indirectly
    more gas than the Chevy Volt. The Chevy Volt should be the car that
    gets the White pool lane sticker and should get more state rebate
    than the Tesla.

    who have never owned a Chevy Volt have no idea how little gas it
    uses. Over the past almost 8 years of using my Chevy Volts most of
    the times I can not even remember the last time I purchased gas.

    Volt is also a great maintenance free car, I can write a real long
    article about all the benefits of owning a Chevy Volt but not this
    time. I think
    Bob Lutz (the person who forced GM to make the Volt) against all odds
    i.e. “GM engineers”
    receive the Nobel prize for his idea and persistence. Had GM added a
    gas generator in the Chevy Bolt the same size as the gas generator in
    the Chevy Volt then the Chevy Bolt would have become (BVOLT) and
    would have become the greatest selling car in the world.
    Mr. Bob Lutz no longer works for GM and GM executive are now forced
    to listen to “GM engineers”
    make their decisions.

    Even if I lived in an apartment
    building with no electric outlets in the parking section I will still
    purchase a Chevy Volt to use it as a gas only car. On gas only,
    without ever being plugged in for charging, it gets more than 40
    miles per gallon. This mileage combined with almost no maintenance
    and the incredible torque this car has, makes this car better than
    the gas cars made by Honda, Toyota, Nissan combined. The 100%
    electric drive makes the main function of the gas engine is to charge
    the battery or run the electric motor. This means this gas engine is
    under no stress to propel the car which make this engine run under
    little mechanical degradation, which means it can easily run half a
    million to one million miles without much of a problems.

    someone makes an All-Electric car that is powered by a
    super-capacitor (or other means) that can be fully charged in minutes
    charging facilities are present at all gas stations, then
    All-Electric cars are not “Zero Emission” and not even close to
    being the lowest emission cars on the market. Super-capacitor cars I
    do not envision to be around anytime soon and until such a car
    becomes a reality then I say to the whole world that is watching :
    Emperor's New Clothes, he
    hasn't got anything on,".
    To all the auto industry CEO's with visions, missions of a “Zero
    Emission” cars : the jig is up because it is not in the
    All-Electric cars.

    Volt has the lowest emission of most if not all (including
    All-Electric) cars and should receive the Nobel prize for being the
    greatest car ever built.

    This video is BULL shit. You can't get a Model 3 for $35k, Try $49K. TESLA has no dealers and may be OUT OF Business. Chevy will be around and dealers down street. Model 3 quality control is piss poor and it is proprietary; you can't get parts or do anything to the car without Tesla.

    The difference is that GM can make cars. Tesla can't. All Tesla owners, I mean all of them, have some issue here and there. And these issues are normally fixed in a very "cowboy" way at Tesla. Door handles that stop working, panels that don't align, windshields that change colour and crack - mostly things that will make your car unusable for weeks.

    As usual...the Tesla fanboys are alive and well on this site. The plain and simple truth is that the Model 3 rollout has been an unmitigated disaster for Tesla. The carrot on the string game continues and now we hear ANOTHER 9 months for the $35,000 version that no one has ever seen in the flesh...but the $49,000 version is available! Tesla has alot to learn about making and selling cars and it is inexcusable that this is now the 3rd rollout of a product and it is the worst of the three in terms of initial time to wait and build quality.
    Needless to say, most of you can guess I own a Bolt. Frankly though, they are BOTH amazing cars for completely different reasons. To compare them in cost however is absurd at this point.
    The Model 3 trunk is essentially useless. Had they used the S hatch design it would have been a winner. Rear seat room in the Model 3 is a joke. The Bolt has tons...Build quality (or the lack thereof) in the Model 3 is beyond disappointing but is improving. The Bolt has been rock solid so far. And the list goes on...
    You will never convince a fanboy to change his/her mind no matter what you say. Its like sheep jumping over a cliff...If one goes, they all go.
    The real point here is that ANY ev is a good ev. Fanboys are introverts...its all about the look. They could care less about the function. That is what the Tesla is...nobody ever mentions that a Chevy Bolt door handle costs $49.95 as opposed to $750 for the Tesla handle. Or that the "highly recommended" Tesla maintenance package costs $3000 when the Bolt doesn't even need one. Or that a windshield is cheap for a Bolt but god help you if you need a new one for the Tesla.
    Common sense practical people understand the value of the Bolt. Its less about looks and all about the function. Tesla is the other way around...and your going to pay a pretty penny for it over the long haul.

    Also, just wanted to say that I agree with everything you said about the comparison. BTW, I was on the Tesla waiting list until last month, but I couldn't justify the much higher price. If you arn't into status, I recommend the Bolt.

    Buyer beware , Contract say battery warranty is guarantee for 8 years or 100 thousand miles. whatever comes first, that comes to a 34.4 miles limit a day over 8 years or just a tiny 17.2 dayly work route go and return Range. So if your route is 68.8 your 8 warranty has now shorten to just 4 years you made 100 thousand miles. the S and X have full 8 years and unlimited miles. I verified this yesterday at the showroom, it's true no plans around this. The replacement battery Cost is 32 thousand and 10 thousand labor, battery could come down later but labor would go up. like battery for hybrids ,the car is blue book valued by the battery warranty and mileage, so 8 years old , 42 thousand is lost in deprecation , why dont the model 3 give full 8 years and unlimited miles ? He not taking the risk but passing it down to you, the car is for the rich, save for your kid college that going to double.by then.

    GM hasn't launched a Bolt towards Mars. Publicity sells and not many people even know the car exists. GM fails big time when it comes to marketing the car. Furthermore it is very difficult to find a Chevy dealer who hasn't marked up the base model Bolt to over $40K.

    I am very interested in the EV and watching its progress. However for now they are just not practical based on cost and ability. They need to get the prices down to at least the same range as a gas model of same size which would be at least half what they are asking now. For instance I have a Corolla that I paid out the door around 16,000 dollars. Second they need to get the range up to at least 500 miles using full heat or air. Third they need to get the charging times down to around 10 to 15 minutes max empty to full charge. Hopefully in 2 to 5 years they will have this all worked out because right now they are little more then an over priced impractical toy.

    • John Smith
      John Smith 11 months ago

      No society does NOT want the as they are. They are over priced toys. If society wanted them they would be selling without any tax credits or government helping the auto makers pay for them. The intellectually midget is anyone like yourself who seeks after losers which the current EV is. Truth earns respect something you have no clue about.

    • edwong3
      edwong3 11 months ago

      Your opinion that EVs are overpriced, impractical toys is not going to change the fact that society wants them. Gas cars are on their way out and there is nothing you or any other intellectual midget can do about it. I do think the world of myself in a healthy way without being narcissistic, and that has nothing to do with "seeking your respect". You earn respect by holding yourself in the proper place, not by how much other people think about themselves. Evolve with the times or get left behind. This discussion is over.

    • John Smith
      John Smith 11 months ago

      edwong3 yes impractical and yes a toy and no most people are NOT buying them. Perhaps you could try a course in truth. The EV of today will never at for itself against a comparable gas model and the wait for refueling is crazy. By the way you think way too much of yourself if you think I was seeking your respect. All I care abut is pointing out the truth about the current EV's being sold in this country and the false claims about how great they are. They are over priced impractical toys at best.

      Have you ever taken a course in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and learned about the "Meta-Model"? It is a model for excellence in communication and that includes ACCURATE communication! When you say "most people are not buying them", that shows you have a very poor perception of reality because people are buying them. You want me to show you an impractical car? Try using a Koenigsegg Agera to take your kids to the soccer practice, then pick them from practice and stop on the way home at the grocery store and carry six bags of items. Good luck with that! That is an impractical car for that type of use. I could say that is an overpriced toy but to some, it gives some people a sense of accomplishment and joy so such a negative attitude about that car is unwarranted. A Model 3 has the same utility if not more than any Toyota sedan so your comment is a joke. It also set the record for the most pre-orders ever, for not just an automobile, but for consumer products, period! I thought I could respect your judgment but you proved me wrong! Case closed!!!

      John Smith 11 months ago

    Apples & Oranges, targeted to different buyers. Advantage of Bolt is it's less expensive and a small SUV style making it more practical than a lower riding sports car. One thing people either like or do not like is Tesla ported everything to a huge HMI interface and therefore the dash is plain with nothing on it. Chevy Bolt at least has all the dials, knobs and buttons that the consumer is generally familiar and more accepting of.

    You also forgot to mention one of the most important things when buying an Eevee 412 Chevy only has one battery pack where is the Tesla has two battery packs the short-range battery pack 220 miles rated range and for another $10,000 you can get the long-range 330 mile rated range battery pack which is I believe and 85 kilowatt battery pack not to mention the fact that in the US the CDC charge standard for non Tesla vehicles is actually chademo 99% of the charge stations you're going to go to that are DC Quick Charge stations are going to have a Chatham adapter as well as an SAE and there's also plenty more charge stations that are DC quick charge in the US that I've noticed recently that only have a chademo and that is a standard adapter that comes with a Tesla now so at least 98% of any DC Quick Charge stations you're going to be able to go and plug your bolt into you'll also be able to plug your model 3 into it as well not to mention the fact that the model 3 can use the supercharger Network and the way Tesla charges for that is per kilowatt based on the residential flat rate kilowatt hour rate for Eevee owners in that area cuz that's the rate that they charge you for using the supercharger in whatever area you're in my local supercharger would cost me $0.12 per kilowatt to charge my car at I had a model 3 or you can think of Model S Tesla Model X buying them from Tesla they are back to the free unlimited supercharging standard there not to mention that the only reason that Chevy initially designed and produced the Chevy bolt is so that way they could be competitive in the evening market and they have set limited numbers from the beginning even when the bolt was a very hyped car and people were definitely thinking about it and definitely saying they wanted one they knew that they were going to have a limited production of a maximum of 5,000 per year they only make the bolt to offset their carbon footprint and to be a compliance car so that way they can continue making cars like the Camaro and turning out tons of there extremely overpriced 60 70 and $80,000 pickup trucks that really cost 30 $35,000 and $40,000 to make hands while you can easily go and get $17,500 rebate from General Motors on last year's models of pickup trucks that are still on dealership showroom floors I heard of one guy getting a $30,000 manufacturer rebate on a fully loaded Chevy pickup Tesla does have some supercharger cost built-in to the price of each and every one of the cars they sell the initial cost on the model 3 is not high but it goes towards maintenance and expansion of the supercharger Network plus Tesla is marking the price of the electricity they are getting for the model three up by between 30 and 50% to turn out a little bit of profit on supercharging for the model 3 to be able to work on again overtime expanding and upgrading the supercharger Network another thing you forgot to mention is out of the hundred and forty thousand cars that Tesla has produced and sold this year at least half of those went to Europe and we're not sold in the US more like 105 to 110000 of those were sold two countries that were not the United States and the tax credit is based on number of units sold in the United States not the overall number of units manufactured by the company in the United States Tesla says that even when they get their facility up to full boar producing 500,000 cars a year they expect that only between 120 and 200000 of those cars on an annual basis we sold in the states so as of their current business plan 100% of all future Tesla owners in the US can expect to receive the $7,500 tax credit on the federal level not to mention that with the model three since you were buying a Tesla if the car breaks down when it's still in its warranty. Tesla will be able to send you a loaner car when they come to pick up your broke down car whereas the Chevy you are just out of luck they won't even get you a rental car and most of the Chevy dealerships in the country are not trained or equipped currently to work on the Chevrolet bolt because there is only a limited number of dealerships that sell them all major cities have at least one that sells them and usually it's just those major cities that have technicians train to work on them so in the event something does happen and it does break down you can expect to have to have Chevrolet ship your car off to a dealership that could be in the next state over and it could take up to 6 weeks before you get your bolt back as far as I'm concerned the only advantage to buying the Chevy Volt that I can see is you would get it right now otherwise all the advantages fall in the court of Tesla considering if you buy the Tesla Model 3 S or X there is so many more Chargers Tesla currently has over 2300 supercharger installations Nationwide in the US versus the other manufacturers DC supercharger installations which is only at about 1300 Nationwide in the US so there's three times more DC quick charging available with Tesla plus they also produce an adapter a j1772 to Tesla adapter that allows you to use all of the other AC charging networks in the US that all the other Eevee manufacturers Vehicles can use as well plus there is a much wider variety of charge adapters for different Outlets that you can buy for a Tesla meaning that if you buy the entire array of adapters there would virtually be no place in the US that you wouldn't be able to charge as long as they have an outlet of some sort plus one current Advantage right now to buying a Chevy Volt is the fact that currently you can probably go in and easily get a few thousand-dollar manufacturer rebate on top of the price of your car which would bring it down to the price of a model 3 most likely cuz it's probably a $2,500 rebate again going back to the only advantage to the bolt is on the base model which is only one battery pack size for the bolt that they planned so far you get an extra 18 miles of range and the car is available right now that's it no other advantages.

    Chevy had plant to make the bolt already. Chevy purchase the drivetrain from LG. Chevy designed the styling of the bolt chevy used parts it had from other cars it made in the past. Chevy sells the bolt at a loss of five to $10000 per car while the Tesla is made in house from the ground up. Tesla designed and is responsible for almost all of the model three the Tesla model three has many design oversights like The glove box cannot be opened without the assistance of the car. Not good after an accident when the car maybe dead Each manufacturer has his strengths and weaknesses. But both are still good cars

    So the Bolt wins because it is $125. cheaper you don't have to order and it looks better? Only a fool would buy a Chevy because they don't want to pay the $125.more.This is your government being bought off by General Motors do you really want to support that? If they order now the TESLA is 2,500 CHEAPER! Looks- how wrong can they be here A chevy better looking than a Tesla? There is bias all over this video, come on its Tesla a no-brainer it wins. GM paid for this LOL

    Tesla is safer, more future-adaptive, and built by a man who wants to save the humankind. And number of power station is underrated here. Primary purpose of a car is to go from A to B. Therefore power stations are very important.

    I can’t take a review seriously when the reviewer keeps showing the wrong car for Chevy- the Bolt and the Volt are two very different vehicles and they don’t even look the same.

    Chevy volt looks terrible. I'm not going to pay $30k for a car that people will laugh at when they see. I totally agree with your comparison though. I don't know why Chevy doesn't just make a better looking car. It'd be serious competition for the model 3.

  • Randy201851

    What puzzles me is so many ppl compare the two cars yet beyond the same base price, both are BEV's & have similar ranges they are two very different vehicles. The Bolt is an urban runabout, a 2nd car for a suburban family, a station car, or primary car for older teens, early 20's or seniors. The Model 3 is a primary car aimed at the BMW 3/5 series market. I have to commend GM for offering a BEV that really doesn't compete with Tesla so both can thrive. It wouldn't be unusual at all for a family to have both a Model 3 and a Bolt. One major negative for the Model 3, as well as the S & X, is body repair costs. There are a surprising number of 'totaled' Model S & X's out there that have body damage one would expect to cost $1,000 - $1,500 to repair but Tesla authorized repair shops estimate are $25,000 to $30,000 to repair so the insurance companies write them off. All Tesla repair parts come from Tesla & they charge more than premium prices. GM doesn't have those restrictions so a $1,000 - $1,500 repair job on a Bolt costs just that & can be done at a repair shop of the owner's choice. There are several videos out there where home mechanics have bought two 'totaled' Model S's to assemble one working, salvaged, Model S for a fraction of the cost of a used Model S of the same vintage. Early on Tesla would trash the software on any Tesla that was on their books as 'totaled' and refuse to update the software so a home mechanic could have a perfectly fine repaired Model S but it was unusable because of the trashed software. I don't think they do that anymore but if one owns a Tesla one is dependent upon Tesla in ways that they aren't with other more mainstream manufacturers.

    Good review over all
    You cant count autonomous driving if you cant use it so it is mute. By the time it is allowed on the road most vehicles may have it
    You cant count looks/styling - its just a personal view point - i like practical so I like Bolt hatchbacks - and it just looks better...to me. However, it is your review and your entitled to your points/opinion.
    Chevy is not advertising the bolt....not that much. Dont know why. Hell, I went into a dealer ship to test drive, they did not have one, could not find one and they did not know or did not want to tell me about a local government run EV center that had most EV's including the Bolt to test drive...so what was up with that!

    First only the confort and quality of Tesla is 100 % better thang GM, because GM dont beleve in éléctrique car becaus this dont give us more repair after so they make électrique car fast and not confortable to be able to sale more other cars than électrique ones. They will do effort only if the countries make rules to obligate the constructors to make available électric cars. So only Tesla think about the future of humain you don't have to see more.

  • Ankit Borkhataria

    'Looks' checkbox was checked on Bolt side. However, he said Model 3 wins look-wise. Model 3 is absolute winner in looks, performance and in terms of charging stations. Where are the charging stations for Chevy? I would love to see that map.

    I think you are speaking on behalf of Chevy. The Range I think goes to Tesla, for they always post less miles vs Chevy, and you can charge it just about anywhere. In the looks deptarment there is no comparison Tesla is better. The only one I give you is Availability, (for now). Dont forget that 95% of Tesla is built with American Labor.

    sounds like the tesla has much better performance that is if you consider same range from a smaller battery plus better 0-60 time.
