      To expand on this interior wise:

      Bolt: 52.2 cu ft, front legroom 41.6", rear legroom 36.5", cargo capacity (seats up) 16.9 cu ft, cargo capacity (seats down) 56.6 cu ft
      Golf: 52.7 cu ft, front...
    2. Most people will lease where the bank takes the...

      Most people will lease where the bank takes the full credit and instead of leasing a 37.5k car, they are leasing a 30k car. In fact, with an EV... I'd think you'd be dumb not to lease. The technology...

      Mine is around $.15... you also have to factor in the charging losses. There are a few factors, but 55kw of energy going into the pack will be more around 62-63kw used (~12% loss on 220/240). Still...

      Yep, in my experience with the ex's Volt the cold hurt more than heat. It could be mitigated by having it plugged a bit before you left, or right after the charge since the car would heat the battery...

      238 miles might be enough for me to change my mind on my new daily. I was thinking Volt this time around since I do have fairly routine trips in the ~175-200 mile range... 238 miles might be enough...

      Depending on the unit, the Fi-Tech is awesome because it is boost capable out of the box and I think that has caused a huge rush of people buying them. I love the unit on my old Caddy.

      This oversupply won't just happen with electric cars, but it is also happening with tightening fuel economy standards as well. 2023 is probably early for a big oil crash, but 2030... I can easily see...

      I know it is close to 80-20 which does make a huge difference in how much they degrade. It probably also has to do with how managed the Volt's batteries are and their chemistry. GM really did that...

      The Idaho National Lab does battery testing on all the EV and range extending vehicles. The BMWs don't have much mileage on them, only 1 has a report over 10k (12k)... it lost 1.2kWh (21.5 to 20.3). ...

      I'm right there with you... I just got rid of my iPhone 5 that I got a couple months after launch, and that was only because the battery was dying. Most people I know change out yearly now... I'll...

      2 years was the model for a long time in the mobile phone industry, even before smart phones... it has gotten shorter with smartphone and new, upgraded models being released yearly. That is why phone...

      This... I'm going to seriously consider leasing a Bolt and waiting for 2019/20 Model 3. Win-win-win

      All phones are designed to be replaced within 1-2 years, that isn't just Apple... Apple is just the best at it. Cars are more on a 4-5-6 year cycle. So Apple is supporting 2 to 3+ times the expected...

      Apple eventually requires you to upgrade the hardware, but that is usually past the useful life of the phone. Hell, iOS 9 can be run on a iPhone 4S... a phone that came out nearly 5 years ago. Cars...

      I could see a lot of speedometer readings moving 1mph off just through treadwear. This isn't realistically enforceable, and if they do, people will fight.

      Well, it pretty much eliminates any American V8/V10 6MT car for you, except the MT82 Mustangs.... and that is a much worse transmission. To each their own I guess.

      The same placement as any 6060 (and T56 before it)? Seems like a really odd critique...

      With the way the battery is managed in the Volt, I'd be surprised if the was much battery degradation.

      Motor Trend On-Demand will probably fail... it is a buggy, slow mess of a streaming site.
    20. With charging coming where it has already, and...

      With charging coming where it has already, and what it likely will be in ~5 years... I just don't see hydrogen being viable. Too costly and expensive to produce, and way, way less refueling...
