I live in a remote spot... so when I do take 2 ferries (each way) and go to town at considerable expense (nearest "city" is Campbell River BC), I make it worth the trip and do a lot
of shopping, like 1 or 2 months' worth. On the most recent run I was amazed how much stuff I could pack neatly into the Bolt... and still see out the rear window! Particularly appreciated the "built in cooler" (the lower section of the "trunk" area) which with its foam lid and floor is almost as good as an icebox. a 2 lb bag of frozen shrimp (wrapped in a down jacket) stayed frozen in there for about 6 hours on the way home. Sweet!
I would say I packed as much into the Bolt as I have ever packed into the 1/4 ton pickup on a normal shopping run. Of course when it comes to sheet plywood, bags of cement, or a digger scoop full of crush gravel, the truck comes into its own
But for ordinary shopping even on a large scale, the Bolt is remarkably capacious. Yet another virtue of this surprising little car. I'm beginning to feel pretty smug about owning one
Also observed that on smooth flat pavement, low speed city traffic, no hills, my efficiency went to 13KWh per 100km which is a noticeable improvement over my normal average of 15. Even with a couple of hundred pounds of cargo.
