Hi:
New here.
Wondering what colors will be available?
I've only seen the silver color and too bright concept orange color for the Bolt. Even the grey CES Vegas ones.
But i like blue, so did a bit of photoshop work to make a blue one with a bit darker tint to the windows.
Enjoy.

p.s. did not know how to do full size.

Agreed. I really wanted the concept orange. To rub it in, it looks like our friends in Europe are going to get the orange you and I want on the Ampera E!:mad:

I'm still going to get the orange though. The red is fantastic, but is just too trendy right now and the kinetic blue is also real good, but I guess I'm just not a blue kinda guy, so orange it is even if it isn't the one I really want.
We could always just wrap the car in a metallic orange vinyl. 3M has some fantastic colors.

Think your Bolt in Cajun Red is Unique & Special?

Think again.
At the local auto show I was looking at the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox in red. I asked the attendant 鈥渨hat鈥檚 that color called?鈥 Answer: 鈥淐ajun Red Tintcoat鈥. Me: 鈥淲HAT !!鈥
I then googled Chevrolet Cajun Red Tintcoat. Oh, no... (see picture)

I鈥檓 going to go after Canada Chevrolet for: 1.) a discount and, 2.) official renaming of the Cdn Bolt鈥檚 red paint color to: Cehjun Red Tintcoat. I鈥檒l also be petitioning the courts to allow: immediate release on bond & maximum penalty of suspended sentence in cases of attempted murder where: the accused is the owner of a Bolt in Cehjun Red and was approached by anyone who states in a normal octave or above: 鈥渘ice Sonic鈥..

Hold on a minute.... you mean YOU got a Bolt in Cajun Red Tintcoat as well!? Does that mean if we ever meet each other on the 401, we might cosmically implode for being in the same place at the same time? I'm petitioning Chevy for an app that will show me your location at all times to prevent such a disaster. And lord help the first person that says "Nice Sonic" to me..... :D
Sharing the Cajun Red Tintcoat paint with other models is fine, but the Sonic? That's just asking for people to mistake the Bolt for a Sonic. That colored should be discontinued for the other vehicle!

I don't know if you can still do it but I thought at one time you could custom order what ever colour you wanted? All the cars now are a factory order right now so can't a special order request be made for the Opel colour? The car is made in the same plant.

On the Opel website I looked into the Konfigurator. Couldn鈥檛 find what the paint color choices are for the Ampera-e.


There鈥檚 a bright yellow colour shown in Ampera pictures from Europe. Don鈥檛 know if that鈥檚 a production color. Bright yellow is nice and would have a more lasting appeal versus Mary Kay Cadillac Pink or Camaro Krypton Green.


Found this video for Ampera on the Opel website. No Chevy-like munchkins allowed鈥 much more specific product positioning. Actors look like me and my wife (haha).:p
Anyone know if we can get the Ampere badges and remove the Chevy ones?
I looked at Opel鈥檚 Ampera video and thought: 7.3 secs to 100 km/hr, boy they messed that up. Then I remembered 100 km/hr= 62.1371 mi/hr. So then Ampera鈥檚 0-60 time is 7.05 seconds. Okay, conservative. But the reference to up to 500 km range is rather wild.

After my wife looked at the video, she said 鈥 so you鈥檙e getting a Bolt because you think it鈥檚 a chick-magnet ?? Yeah right..you and a Bolt. Dream on鈥

I bet they forgot to hit the Sport button! Yeah the 500km range is based on the European test cycle which is very optimistic. There is another video where they quote a 520km range but then they say for a more realistic range the world standard test gives it a 380km range which is pretty bang on to the range we are told. Real life in the summer will probably be somewhere in between the two.
