Since social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and even SnapChat get most of the love I figured we could compile a list of owners, journalists, dealers, etc. that are documenting their Bolt experience. Feel free to include your social media page(s) here.

Going through Instagram, I can already see some reporting going on...

Best documentation of the Bolt's trunk size that I've seen so far. It fits one man, maybe even comfortably if you remove the cargo privacy cover.

Man, he didn't even drop the false floor. Would have been way more comfortable then.

Adult bodies can fit in the hatch - confirmed
Box of latex gloves can fit in the front center storage compartment between the front seats on the floor - confirmed

The Bolt is turning out to be a pretty good kidnap-mobile too! Lol

Digging more through what's happening elsewhere on the gram, I found this Energy Usage Score:




ON THAT NOTE: It might be time that we get a thread dedicated on just that, our scores. Who wants to do the honors with their own personal score?

I'm impressed that the cover for the lower cargo compartment was strong enough to hold him. It didn't seem all that sturdy when I looked at it, but I guess it's stronger than it looks.

Now.. the main question is... how big of a shovel can I fit in there...?

Just out of curiosity, you know?

Wish I could, but I haven't even gotten a Bolt yet. :crying: I can see ppl try to get the best technique and climate setting score, but there's not much you can do about the other two.

Starting to think we might see more things to track in the future as Chevy releases updates or as more scoring apps become available. Being a product some will live with for the next 3+ years, knowing the stats on a consistent basis can go a long way.

Get a collapsible shovel and space is not a problem!

Actually, where did you do!? I’m also a fan of this type of video. Many of them who really speak the truth are deleted for YouTube. Our social media today allows something to be available that is false and misleading. I have an Instagram account and have posted regarding politics and the situation in general. LINKKK was a good partnership inviting new people to see my channel and give interest and auto likes services and much more after. WE need to get people to be aware that almost everything that we know from the system that invaded our daily life choices is made special for us to miss one and most important thing, We are bamboozled!

I've been doing some vlogging and what not. I have our first trip in our Bolt documented on YouTube, and shared elsewhere on this site. Intent is to try to follow along my original (and not at all well held to) plan that I had for our former LEAF, and do 5k updates, or vlog anything significant that occurs to or with the car.

Been watching some Youtube vids while waiting for delivery of my used 2017 Premiere.
Most have been very informative; reprogramming the sensors after tire rotations, using features, etc.

There's a Facebook group devoted to the Bolt EV and another devoted to Chevy EV's
Several Bolt owners have a youtube channel and vlog routinely. I follow News Coulomb and Plug and Play EV. Both of those vloggers contribute to this forum.
Then there's Out of Spec Motoring whose youtube channel is Tesla oriented, but also reviews other EVs.

I've watched a lot of News Coulomb's vids. Thanks by the way if you're reading this! :D
Part of the reason I went w/ a used Bolt instead of a Leaf or Tesla - his 50K mile & 100K mile
updates.

Lots of reviews and "1st ride impressions" from professional Youtube reviewers. But hearing
from an actual owner/user has more meaning for me.

I'm also a member of the Facebook group page. Loads of good info there as well.

Thanks! The whole reason I started my YouTube channel was because I knew my specific use case would be fairly unique, so I hoped to provide information from that perspective.

Another good source for information on the Bolt EV is from Jeff Nisewanger at Electric Revs. His site isn't Bolt EV specific, but as a Bolt EV owner and overall EV advocate, Jeff's website has some of the most informative and unbiased articles you can find.
