    I'm listening, and thinking! People are starting to work on reconfiguring Volt and Leaf packs, which can be had for pretty reasonable in wrecking yards. I built an electric Ford ranger in '08, still have it. It'd be easy to drop the running gear into a B or Spitfire. With lithium batteries, it'd be pretty fast running my 28 hp Advanced DC motor at 144 volts. Stay tuned.........

    Not sure - how many of you are actually trying to make this decision - Volt vs Bolt. But, I'm.

    I was almost set on Bolt as my stop gap car till I get Model 3 - some 18 months away, I guess. But cost-wise it looked like it might be $200 a month more (lease). Wasn't sure that was worth it.

    My wife & kids saw Bolt & Volt. They liked Bolt.

    But today I drove Bolt, with my wife. Also Volt. Now my wife feels Bolt is too small and feels "unsafe". She always felt Volt was too low - but now feels it is acceptable.

    Still not sure, what I'll end up buying in the next month. I may even end up with the 3rd Leaf - that I am trying to avoid.
