    Thank you for the explanation! I'm still learning so much about EVs after a lifetime of ICE vehicles.

    Carbon fiber wheels There are rumors that GM will offer production carbon fiber wheels soon. The unsprung weight reduction on a Bolt would probably result in a real improvement of range. http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2016/05/gm-also-looking-to-offer-carbon-fiber-wheels.html

    Has anyone heard of this before? How could the system know when the utilities are turning to more polluting sources for power generation at a given time? http://insideevs.com/emotorwerks-new-juicenet-program-can-save-california-ev-drivers-400year/
  8. More Opel Bolts will be hitting the roads

    Opel Ampera-e General Discussion
    The German government passed a €1 billion incentive package today that should result in subsidies of €4,000 for pure EVs in Germany. Their goal is to deliver one million EVs on German roads by 2020...
  9. Anyone else considering an i3?

    Chevy Bolt EV Versus the Competition
    Hmm, I had not even considered a used Model S. Anyone know how the used models are financing? Are any private lenders offering favorable financing rates on used Model S? In any event, I'm more looking for a lease anyway, and I can't lease a used Model S...

    Chevy Bolt EV Versus the Competition
    Somebody on a car buying forum broke down the costs of a BMW i3 lease very well: http://forum.leasehackr.com/t/2015-bmw-i3-lease-deal-msrp/446/24
  11. Anyone else considering an i3?

    Chevy Bolt EV Versus the Competition
    BMW USA is really pushing the incentives right now. I'm strongly thinking of taking them up on one of their great offers, for a car that should be entirely competitive with the Bolt except for the range. What do you all think, should I do it? 2015 i3s are leasing out for about $160 per month...
  12. Autonomous Chevy Bolts?

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    My plan now (as of this week), is that I've decided I'm going to lease a Bolt and then trade up for a Tesla Model III once Tesla has had a few years to work out their issues. I won't care if the Bolt is perfect from the start because it's only going to be a short-term option for me anyway. I'm...

    Two autonomous Bolts were spied on the streets of SF! http://www.autoblog.com/2016/05/18/autonomous-chevy-bolt-ev-spy-photo/#slide-3894802
  14. Opel version unveiled

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Now I see why GM designed the Bolt with a D-pillar that looks like an Opel -- this European version must have been in the cards from the beginning. The new Opel/Vauxhall Ampera-e Opel D-pillar:
