    Pre-order does not = a sale. But if GM wants to "make noise" like that other guy, then they need to start announcing their "pre-order" volume to much fan-fare.

    Is it new? Can you take the ITC (tax credit) for it? If so, maybe offer $24k and see what happens.

    Not good enough. The reason is with the new Volt Gen-2 out and orders being taken - it "should have" done a bit better. I do think February will be similar to 2015 and march up if they slam a bunch...

    They have to stop using the term "killer".
    How about "Tesla cousin"?

    If each company is meant to kill each other - then the words sound like only one EV company will stand after it is all done. ...

    At work all day - 12A on 120V should give back at least 40 miles of range. Why push for more? Do you drain the battery before you get to work? I like the idea of more 120V dedicated workplace...

    Even a moderately up-hill drive will take 16 estimated miles down to 0 in 8-10 miles of driving. What is the outdoor temperature there? Was it raining? Cold weather and rain plus cabin heating...

    In Summary - all the more reason we would want to cut our own personal oil consumption and if possible use USA-drilled/refined oil over imported oil. Even if it is from Canada (tar sands destroying...

    You are calling for a BEV-only future. However, to make SUVs and larger vehicles electrified, we do need EREV technology. Volt's design needs to be up-scaled so the large SUVs on the road can also...

    Why do they add a mileage limit to this? It's crazy that a higher-mileage vehicle would not be eligible under the 10 year window. Some guys just have longer commutes and should still be supported.

    A better solution for a 5-person family is if GM would make a Voltec small CUV or put Voltec into an Equinox and consider optional DWD like Tesla did.

    I turn on minimal heat below 30F and none above. That is my curse for being born in Buffalo, NY.

    I would rather send my money to Michigan than to Japan. I start there before looking at the tech.

    It is not a huge negative to run it once a month on gas just to put the engine through a run cycle. The OP can commute it one day per month on gas one way and then charge at work and then drive home...

    I have an EVExtend kit. It is nice but certainly cannot act as a "critical circuits" solution for a home.

    Consider a generator. I have appointments from a Generac installer at a relative's...

    There is a minor chance that they threw off the alignment while the car was in their care. Do they have any steep driveways or did they put on a good # of miles while they had it? My dealer...

    The OP sounds like a more common-consumer than an EV enthusiast and may not know "all the tricks".
    First, the range estimate is just that - and not a gas tank.
    Second, the tires may have been...

    I suggest you call every Chevy shop in your area (and we all should) and bug them every 2 weeks asking "when will you allow us to order a Bolt" - bug them - harass them. Make them know that there is...
