2019 Chevy Bolt - Here is what has changed

Took some time to make a little video about this. I had the opportunity to spend some time with a 2019 mint green Bolt Premier. Let me know your thoughts folks.

No dead pedal in sight. It is possible I missed it though as it still had all the plastic everywhere. Sales person said they have 39 units coming in. Car had two miles on it. I was surprised at the changes they made to it just two model years in. They are listening to us...the big thing I was worried about was the softer ride compromising the sporty handling and it didn't feel like it did. Car handles very good. I measured the seats with a tape measure and both my 17 and the 19 are 18" wide so I don't know what if anything was changed with the seats.

2 of my favorite colors are gone in exchange for Green Mist. Are the roads really as rough as the last portion of your video depicts or was the camera mount sensitive?
Thanks for the '19 update.

Now that there is a feature to limit the charge capacity, how does it affect hilltop reserve?
I'm thinking of setting mine to 90% if hilltop reserve is no longer a feature which is pretty close to the 88% HTR maxes the charge to.

I'm getting my 2019 premier very soon, It's bayed as per the dealer and it's just waiting for a truck to ship it here. The dealer says it should be here on Friday this week

The other thing I noticed on the 2019 MY is that they separated the heat and A/C, I was a bit puzzled about that. My 2018 has heat and AC as one button, basically it's easy to hit one button to have the climate system on or just the fan on. I'm guessing it's GM listening to their customers who want more control of everything about this vehicle I would still prefer they have kept the 2017 and 2018 settings in regards to this.
Oh well, I'll just get used to it.
I'm still very excited to get my 2nd Bolt, hopefully by next week!

Cheers!

That ability to set a charge limit is huge, this is something that should have been there from the beginning IMO. Since I drive only about 20 miles a day I'd probably set it to about 70% and leave it there unless I was going to go on a longer drive where I needed more range.

Hopefully this is something that GM will let us existing owners have via a software update. I suspect we''d need a lot of Bolt owners to contact them and ask for it though.

My daughter is operating the camera The roads can be rough around here though but most of the main roads are in good condition. I don't do a lot of car videos so I don't have a go pro or anything like that.

*crosses fingers hoping for a software update for 2017/2018 models to add 2019 features*

2017 Summit White Bolt LT, VIN #83351, built 8/2017 (real range anxiety now).
2017 Kinetic Blue Volt LT, VIN #11925, built 6/2016. (loved it, only fake range anxiety, but traded due to annoying misfires)
