I talk about why I chose to buy a Bolt EV and what it's like after one month. The ROI is tough: 10 cents / kWh x 60 kWh = $6/full Bolt EV charge vs 60 liters x $1.29 = $77.40 CDN. $2,580.00 per year vs $200 / year, based on 15,000 km / year. Savings = $2380 x 10 years = $23,800 CDN. So... compare to a Chevy Cruze Premier = $29k, Bolt EV Premier = $49k = $30k difference. I'd have to drive this car for 12 years just to make up the difference, based on just fuel alone. But that doesn't tell the whole story. The Bolt is quick, fun, clean, and silent. Bolt EV... so far, so good!
Search new Sonata listings: https://goo.gl/CmLMrN The Hyundai Sonata has offered a practical midsize sedan option for years now, with 2.0T trims adding a little driving spice. The competing Camry and Accord both got redesigned for 2018, so the new Sonata got a big refresh, including new looks as well as new standard and optional features that aim to make the daily commute as safe and comfortable as possible. We’re eager to see whether 2018 improvements can boost sales to more accurately reflect the Sonata’s quality and value. The Sonata offers three engines, from the Eco trim’s 1.6-liter 179-hp 4-cylinder to a 2.4-liter four with 185 hp powering most versions to the turbo 2.0-liter four that produces 245 hp in 2.0T trims. (The Sonata Hybrid is a separate model.) The 2018 Sonata gets standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-change assist, as well as optional adaptive cruise, auto high beams, rear parking sensors, lane-keep assist, and automatic emergency braking.

Fair warning; this video is long, but I don't think it's possible to adequately cover a car like this in 5 minutes.

The Bolt was obtained as part of a 24 hour test drive so that my wife and I could gather information about our other automotive options ahead of the Model 3 launch. Disclosure: The creator of this video is a Tesla owner and is long $TSLA, though had no position at the time of filming.
The guys go commuting in the Chevy Volt. Can it live up to the hype and be competitive against the gas-sipping Pri-i of the world?

Chevrolet’s 2017 Bolt EV aims to reset expectations in at least two ways. By offering a range of well over 200 miles at a price just under $37,500 – or just under $30K for anyone who qualifies for the full $7,500 tax credit – the Bolt hopes to provide a new benchmark for EV cost-effectiveness. And by driving very, very much like a gas vehicle, it also hopes to prove EVs don’t have to reveal their “alternative” nature by providing a radically different driving experience.
The Bolt EV’s instrumentation is distinctive. Its dashboard shows speed, range, and efficiency information clearly, but it’s fully digital and looks very different from that in most cars. And its 10.2-inch infotainment screen offers more data on the electric powertrain and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is a good thing, because the Bolt does not offer navigation. And buyers will definitely want a 240-volt home charging station, because without it, fully replenishing the battery will take a long time. Read more on CarGurus: https://cargur.us/gRbP9
