While at Fremont Chevrolet, I found a Bolt not likely to go anymore. If you want to see what the front end looks without any skin, look below.

Also, the salesman who sold me mine last January, said they had sold about 500, (in the early days they had 300 on the lot) but now have zero. I guess they are between model years at the moment.

Assuming no driver confidence package II? Would think the auto braking would have prevented this.
If following a detected auto on the highway, auto-braking would hopefully (but NOT assuredly) stop you before a strike. However, if the inattentive driver pulls out from your side right into your path, and you are not able to sufficiently swerve, you WILL T-Bone them.

I wonder if they just gave up on fixing it and are using it for spare parts.

Our other car (Subaru Outback) has a more effective active crash avoidance system, and realistically IF another car darted out or ran a light, the best you could hope for is reducing the forces of impact.

In a following the car in front of you scenario, the system works quite well, and would have mitigated the situation.

From the photo I can’t tell what happened. The one downside with this technology is instead of using the system as a tool or aid; it is used to allow the driver to be that much more distracted.

Found a menu setting for the dash display that shows follow distance in seconds. I have issue that it maxes out at 2.5 seconds and only lowers when getting too close. I was taught to stay at least 2 seconds behind the vehicle in front. With the display stuck at 2.5, you have only half a second to realize you're too close.
