Wow - what a glowing review!

An aunt & uncle are considering an EV. I recommended the Bolt. Not as sexy, but I suspect the ownership experience will ultimately be less frustrating (Teslaphiles have a higher annoyance threshold for bugs & quality issues). And theirs would be a 2nd car, so they don't need supercharging.

I definitely like the softened "non-grille" lines on the production model vs. the prototype:
