Paid a quick visit to the show this morning, only to check out the Bolt EV. Glad to see that they had my color choice presented on the floor.
Car seems much bigger on the inside than on the outside.

Thanks for starting this thread. I thought about it and added the below to another thread... sorry for the dup.

I too stopped by the SF Auto Show to see the same pretty Blue Bolt. We were very hopeful that the EV Test Drive today would include the Bolt but unfortunately it was not one of the vehicles to test drive. The vehicle is great. Unfortunately, I was unable to find the Home Link in this particular car - ever hopeful it will be in the cars they are making for all of us now. I am 5" 5" so it is a bit taller than my Prius and there was plenty of head room and leg room for my hubby who is 6' 1".

I sat front and back in the SF Auto Show Bolt and I am 6-2. It seems big enough. I wasn't quite clear on how to hide packages in the back of the fastback (out of sight) as they didn't seem to have the covers in the car.

Just noticed they don't have a seat pocket for the back of the driver's seat. That's one less pocket top put my junk in. Wonder why it's available on one seat and not the other.

There's a privacy shield that attaches to the hatchback itself and it automatically raises up when you open up the hatchback. Also, there's a false floor available on the LT and standard on the Premier that can allow you to hide things. The Chevy booth workers had removed both of those to show how much cargo room the Bolt actually has (quite a lot). I personally would've loved to have those available to play with to get an ideas of the flexibility of the cargo carrying capacity. I also would've liked to have been able to turn the car on to play with the displays.

It's clearly designed to keep you from having too much unnecessary junk in the car, duh! They gotta optimize efficiency somehow...

In reality, it's not uncommon in a lot of cars to have one seat with the pocket and the other without. Some cars don't have a back pockets for either seat.

It probably helps that the dash layout along with the overall interior layout is more along the lines of a van than a car. Little things like that make a big difference. I think after hopping in an out a lot of cars at a show like that you might find its not as big as it first was to you.

what are you currently driving around?

The Bolt was designed for interior space, like that little nook under the dash for storage and the high roof for comfort. Once you've owned it for a while I guess it'll just feel normal.
