With 10 months gone in 2017, the Bolt has 17,083 sales which is realistically [URL=http://www.chevybolt.org/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=2]#2 behind the Tesla S (not every model has reported for October, but unless there is a big spike in butt ugly BMW i3 all the players that haven't reported are on schedule to sell as many units this year that the Bolt does in a month).
Seeing the Bolt beat out the Tesla S in its first full year of production in my view is a long shot being some 3k units behind and knowing Tesla will have a big December. Still, I am thinking Tesla finishes the year with ~28k-30k Model S sold and Chevy sells some ~22k-25k Bolts. Considering a majority of the year distribution was limited and sales are steadily climbing, I think 30k+ may be ambitious but not insane for 2018.
What do you think?
There will be a new Nissan Leaf, but 40kwh air cooled battery (but at a lower price point).
There will be the Tesla Model 3 in full production (maybe?).
I wonder when/if GM will start a big marketing blitz? They have said they are going to have several new EV in the coming years and right now the EV is a place where they are as good if not better than their rivals? Granted trucks are GM's cash cow, but there is only so many times you can have a commercial comparing steel truck beds to aluminum.
