On Christmas morning we drove down to my sister’s house on I-25. Clear mostly empty roads, so I decided to see how it ran at 90 miles per hour for ten minutes or so. It was amazing. Virtually no motor noise, very little wind noise, and only a little more tire noise. It was completely smooth. Ran up a major hill like flat ground. It was easy to control, felt no different from 60 or 70. It felt completely safe, but does, of course, use more electrons per mile. I take that same road a couple times a month in my 05 CRV. The CRV strains at 80 in fifth gear, is noisy, and is really not safe at that speed — I keep it down to 70. The Bolt is amazing. ?
