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 minimumit is getting to the point that it is like comparing a Ferrari to a Ford Mustangthe GAP is too great!
Because Elon Musk is a great marketer and his fanboys worship him, and gm barely markets the bolt
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.
ChevyVolt uses less gas than Tesla, Nissan Leaf or Chevy BoltThestate of California gives a larger rebate to Tesla owners than toChevy Volt owners because the Tesla is a “Zero Emission” car. Inreality the Chevy Volt is closer to zero emission than the Tesla.Thismay not make sense to you so please read on to see my reasoning. Asan owner of three different Chevy Volts Plug in electric / gas hybridcars since 2011, I can affirm you that my experience with those threecars and my experience with the Chevy Volt is that they use much lessfossil fuel (Gas) than Tesla, Nissan leaf or Chevy Bolt. This maysound as an absurd statement but if you let me explain to you why,then it may make more sense, Whena person owns an all electric car (Tesla, Leaf, Bolt) it is never aprimary car. The owner must own a second car as the primary car. Thisis usually a regular gas car that in the long run it uses much morefossil fuel than a Chevy Volt. In other wordsthetotal fossil fuel usage for this household is much more than that fora person who owns a Chevy Volt. TheChevy Volt for this household is the primary car (no range limit) andthere is no need for a second (more long distant) reliable car. Alsoshould note the environmental impact of owning two cars over one carwhich would include parts that needs to be replaced and those usedparts will eventually end in the dump, 4 additional rubbertires to care for, oil changes, transmission oil, brake pads, tuneups, cost for the additional insurance etc. Assoon as a person purchases an all electric car he develops a (RAD)rangeanxiety disorder, it is a disease I invented in my head to explain toyou how a new owner of an all electric car starts to thinks shortlyafter purchasing the car ( sort of similar to buying a Boat: as thesaying goes: the two happiest days in a man’s life is the day hebuys 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”. Whenan owner of a Chevy Volt travels any distant he will always be goingfrom point A to point B.Whenan owner of a Tesla, Leaf, Bolt travel any distance that is close tothe 50% range of the car’s battery capacity or more, he or she nolonger can travel from point A to point B. It will always will bepoint A to point C. The reason is point B will HAVE TO BE astopto use some form of a commercial charger thus diverting from A to Bpath (travel distance increased so is the fossil fuel usage) and thecommercial charger uses of (fossil fuel) to charge the car. Exampleif a Tesla owner lives in Pasadena, Ca.wantsto visit relatives in San Diego, Ca.. This Tesla owner will be veryapprehensive that his or her car my not make the round trip and theycould get stranded somewhere in between putting their life on theline. They have to stop at some Tesla charging station in between toget the Tesla charged or the battery switched while the relative wholives in San Diego will use their gas guzzling (fossil fuel) car topick them up at the Tesla charging station to bring them totheir house and when they are done visiting, this relative will haveto take them back to the charging station using the same gas guzzlingcar, that is four trips. When owners of an all electric car takingany extended trip they must be on their toes learning and knowing thewhole network that they can use to recharge their car (Point B topoint C). If those charge stations are busy charging other cars thenthey must wait possibly buying foods and drinks (that used fossilfuel to make, and produce more trash to fill landfills). If the caris completely discharged then they will have to stay at a hotelovernight, because those All- Electric cars can take as much as 18hours to fully recharge. Boy think about the amount of fossil fuelused to keep a person in a hotel overnight,electricityto operate AC / Heater, watching TV, hair drying, washing sheets andtowels, laundry, food and the trash generated by such a one nightstay. They also will need some form of transportation from thecharging station to the hotel and back (more fossil fuel). Thoseall electric car companies may use sells gimmicks like DC chargingwhere you can get quick charging in a short period of time. I saynonsense, you have to find a charging station with such a DC chargingcapability and hopefully there is nobody else ahead of you waiting touse it. Some people might thing in the back of their head that somehotels may have a one or two charging station for customers to use, Ican guarantee you that those charging station will charge you an arm& a leg (more direct and indirect fossil fuel use) before youcharge your car. In other word they: CHARGE LOTS OF MONEY TO CHARGEYOUR CAR. My experience with hotels chargers is that they eitherdon't work or you can not charge your car with them (Tesla requires aspecial charger). If Tesla owners think that they can knock onpeoples doors and ask them if they would allow them to use theirelectrical outlet in their garage to charge their car while they aresitting in their car, they better think again. It is not onlyunpractical, not workable and damn right dangerous. In some areasaround the country if you knock on peoples door to recharge your carthen you could end up on some TV true crime show. WhenI was a child my father told me the following saying “Goodhealth is like a crown on the heads of healthy people, only sickpeople can see”. Chevy Volts drivers wear a crown (No RangeAnxiety Disorder) only owners of Tesla, Leaf & Bolt drivers cansee this crown. Thestate of California calls those all electric cars as “ZeroEmission” while in fact theyeitherdirectly or indirectlyusemore gas than the Chevy Volt. The Chevy Volt should be the car thatgets the White pool lane sticker and should get more state rebatethan the Tesla. Peoplewho have never owned a Chevy Volt have no idea how little gas ituses. Over the past almost 8 years of using my Chevy Volts most ofthe times I can not even remember the last time I purchased gas. ChevyVolt is also a great maintenance free car, I can write a real longarticle about all the benefits of owning a Chevy Volt but not thistime. I thinkMr.Bob Lutz (the person who forced GM to make the Volt) against all oddsi.e. “GM engineers”shouldreceive the Nobel prize for his idea and persistence. Had GM added agas generator in the Chevy Bolt the same size as the gas generator inthe Chevy Volt then the Chevy Bolt would have become (BVOLT) andwould have become the greatest selling car in the world.UnfortunatelyMr. Bob Lutz no longer works for GM and GM executive are now forcedto listen to “GM engineers”tomake their decisions. Even if I lived in an apartmentbuilding with no electric outlets in the parking section I will stillpurchase 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 40miles per gallon. This mileage combined with almost no maintenanceand the incredible torque this car has, makes this car better thanthe gas cars made by Honda, Toyota, Nissan combined. The 100%electric drive makes the main function of the gas engine is to chargethe battery or run the electric motor. This means this gas engine isunder no stress to propel the car which make this engine run underlittle mechanical degradation, which means it can easily run half amillion to one million miles without much of a problems. Untilsomeone makes an All-Electric car that is powered by asuper-capacitor (or other means) that can be fully charged in minutesANDthosecharging facilities are present at all gas stations, thenAll-Electric cars are not “Zero Emission” and not even close tobeing the lowest emission cars on the market. Super-capacitor cars Ido not envision to be around anytime soon and until such a carbecomes a reality then I say to the whole world that is watching : “TheEmperor's New Clothes, hehasn't got anything on,".To all the auto industry CEO's with visions, missions of a “ZeroEmission” cars : the jig is up because it is not in theAll-Electric cars. TheVolt has the lowest emission of most if not all (includingAll-Electric) cars and should receive the Nobel prize for being thegreatest car ever built. Ownerof 3 Chevy Volts for almost 8 years.
Tesla is clear Winner
There's no such thing as a $35,000 Tesla...it's called misleading consumers.the $35,000 Tesla is actually around $60k out the the door.
In buying any EV include a one liner in your purchase contract: Purchaser will be able to purchase a replacement battery for $XXXX or less at their discretion not the manufactures. Protect yourself!!!
Tesla is nicer than GM car
Tesla super charge is NOT free. BOLT has more range and you don't need to charge it. If you do need to charge it there are Chargers all over the place that can handle it.
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.
My 2019 Bolt is awesome. I'm so glad that Nissan blew the deal so bad that I bought a Bolt.
We have gas carsWe have electric carsBut what is really a HYBRID car?!?
Only an idiot would want a car to drive itself. Then again, I have been involved in motorsports. Apple sells crap at a premium. And some people will pay.
+Alexis Dimes Well then walk, or take public transport. Let people who can drive - drive.
Stev Rex a lot of people don’t like driving lol
Bolt is better lookingCheers, Patrick
There are NO BASE MODEL 3’S available......please stop with these stupid videos!
The Chevy Boat!
Tesla is the Starbucks of the auto world. I'll stick to my 7-11 for 2 bucks rather than three times as much for something that doesn't even taste as good. Cool music though!
Tesla is for simple minded millennial SNOBS who have bought into the "cool factor" , & swallowed the Tesla marketing gimmick whole. There is no evidence that Tesla is superior in any way. It is problem prone.
Admit it, you are a Tesla slappie!!!
Not even close. The Tesla Model 3 rules by far. The Chevy Bolt looks like trash with the hatchback design. The hatchback design just doesnt work for attracting people to buy EV cars. Chevy needs to go back to the drawing board and design a regular size sedan like the Model 3 to even come close to competing.
Tesla model 3 for me. I want and ev i can take on road trips. Even without tax credit i’d still buy the model 3.
Who wants to look at and be seen in an ugly car that you will have for many years and is difficult to take on long trips due to lack of a charging network as extensive and fast charging as Tesla's. Preorders support this perspective.
Are you serious? What competition? This is like comparing a decent looking car to an ugly golf cart. Let’s stop kidding ourselves. Until GM or any other auto manufacturer gets serious about EV’s and the infrastructure needed to make them viable, there is NO competition for Tesla. Tesla is king. Period.
Dude you pronounce Chevy Bolt as BOAT. What is up with that? Why would you a POS from GM that kills people with their deceit and deception? driving.ca/chevrolet/auto-news/news/gm-accused-of-covering-up-defective-ignition-switches Bolt is nothing more than a bucket of bolts built by Bob Moron Lutz. That is why people are not buying it. It still pollutes with hits engine and lacking technology
Chevy bolt is really ugly
A new level of luxury, a detachable roof mounted umbrella that is automatically deployed before the driver steps out of the vehicle. Check out the video:tvclip.biz/video/1BIGZvYTpv4/video.html
Not even closeHans
Model 3 for overall quality.
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.
I never knew that the Chevy boat’s battery packs could survive in the ocean
the bolt sucks man
Ever since my baby's were born I'm into EV and saving the world not to mention saving cash. Give me range...
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.
Really why are people waiting on line for that 35K Model 3 and what that entails of options $$$$$$. The Chevy Bolt has OnStar and ready for Range than searching for a Tesla supercharger you have to pay for with Model 3's..
WTF an Antprunoor?
What if I don't even owe taxes that year? What happens to the tax credits?
model 3 is a joke of a car. i see them on the road and think of how dumb that driver is when he could of bought a used p85d for the same price. you people and buying new cars have no clue how much money you lose once you drive it off the lot and the resale value tanks more then 10k.
Buying an electric car to use electricity produced from burning fossil fuels - that's revolutionary, man :D:D:D
Automation is a red herring , it is at least two decades away and I WANT TO DRIVE MY CAR! I do not want to put my life in the hands of a computer and sensors just yet!
Chevy Bolt does not = Chevy Volt
I just bough a Bolt yesterday. In researching it, I can't find anything really wrong with the car. Sure some complain about the seats or all the plastic or the fact it is a Chevy. Aside from that it is a very practical car with plenty of cabin room. 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.
can i get parts to fix it my self? how many dealers for the 2 cars? what kind of service will i get in the future?
fair points on chevy bolt getting not enough love, i think they can really do better with their design/marketting though..
i love that, 'there is no comparison on looks', translated to chevy bolt is butt ugly..
I think Chevy is selling the Bolt because they want to put Tesla out of business. Once Tesla goes out of business, (Hopefully Never!) then they will stop selling the Bolt and continue doing what they do best, pollute the air.
Both are garbage and electric vehicles are not the future as much as you all want it to be. They are novelty items
I heard that if you go to buy a Bolt, the sales people will try to steer you to their gas models. This was some time ago. I am wondering if this is still the case.
Model 3 is so much better is this even a question?
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.
The Model 3 is the ugliest car on the market. I give that one to the Bolt.
If anyone is considering buying a new Tesla Model X or S which I think are the fabulous cars please feel free to my referral code ts.la/ronald7895 to access free supercharging and a discount off the purchase price.
well this is which is better apples or oranges... the feature that I want from a tesla car is the self driving feature.. you can keep the electric car part..
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.
STOP SAYING HENCE
Just wait until that Tesla gets into a really MINOR fender bender. Then WATCH OUT for the repair costs! That is why the Chevy is a better choice.
chevy boat LOL
Is he saying Chevy boat?
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
edwong3 no most people are not buying them and they are not buying them because they know they are impractical. Perhaps in 2 to 5 years that will change but for now they are nothing but over priced toys and that includes the Model 3.
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.
I live on Vancouver Island where would I take my Tesla for any mechanical problems ? , Chey Bolt to the nearest GM dealership
WHOOOPS WRONG CAR @0:53You are showing the Chevy Volt Plug-In Hybrid not the Chevy BOLT EV.
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.
WOW Trevor, That has to be the longest sentence I have ever read :)
Definitely Leaf 2018. Much much better build quality than Model 3, much cheaper than Bolt.
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
Chevy is better because Tesla will be out of business.
Tesla is more like a tech cult.
at 3:49, who's driving the car
I can't say this is an indepth review.
Take into consideration LEASE factor. You can not lease Tesla, but you can easily lease BOLT.
of course tesla model 3 is better. both technologies are good but bolt really looks like crap. I wouldn't wanna be seen in that ugly thing. chevy could have done better design to compete , why do you think people are waiting 2 years over bolt that is available now
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
Anyone who chooses a Chevy over a Tesla better get their cognitive abilities checked.
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.
At 1:52, what the hell are “flowering” quarters? Don’t you mean FOLLOWING quarters? That mistake, plus several others in the info in the video and the voiceover, don’t make it very credible.
is this even a question
Nice comparison.Now compare Tesla 3 versus Nissan Leaf 2018
Boko Moko Well it’s ass 😂
Dino I Stilo dont't know If it's good ir bad.
Boko Moko Nissan Leaf is ass
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.
That chevy is hideous
If it wasnt for tesla chev wouldnt have this car for sale right now. Chev can burn in hell. Not support crap company
Chevy boat? 0:36
Good review over allYou 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 itYou 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!Cheers, Patrick
This *Curious Elephanr* is trying to downplay the POWER Tesla Model commands
GM Great. AMasons I hate them what about ev1 fuckibg slyta
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.
For me only the attitude of Tesla for service after sale is 1000 % better than GM attitude I saw expérience until now !
At 5:45 he gave looks to the bolt not the tesla
First the Chevy bolt will never win the attention as the model 3 because the model 3 is the future I mean look at the interior it’s just one screen and a steering wheel so model 3 wins for that
'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.
What about safety?
Buy a bolt now then sell it when your model three is ready?
well this was a fucking waste of my time. Annoying voice though, I'll give you that
Until Chevy Bolt gets a Supercharger Network, the Model 3 is my favorite EV.After all Charging on long distance trips is the Achilles' heel of a EV...
If you liked this, come to my channel and check out my videos plz.
I'm sure the chevy is way underrated, but it just looks disgusting. The exterior is fine, but look a the interior. Look at all those buttons and shit eww
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.
