Bolt EVs arriving in Massachusetts
Finally got to take a test drive of a Bolt EV Premier yesterday at Mirak Chevrolet. They got there demo Bolt this past week. Interest seems to be pretty high. They had a sign up welcoming all the test drive appointments sheduled every 30 minutes all day. And they said already sold all their first allocation and have 30 orders placed for their next allocation. They're estimating June delivery at this point.
My drive was about 20-25 minutes. I liked the regen paddle. The last half of my drive I never used the brake. Visibility was very good. Handling and acceleration was as expected based upon the reviews I've read. The rear hatch area seemed a bit small to me. But it was deep. I didn't feel any problem with the drivers seat, (leather). The heat works very good. It was 19f yesterday and interior was toasty warm. I like it.
