2023 Chevy Bolt EV is still the best value EV in America, by far

by Seth Weintraub

We weren’t allowed on streets, just a big parking lot, but it was immediately obvious that there had been some great engineering and packaging work done here.

When my 3-year lease was up, I tried to buy out the Bolt, but GM somehow wanted to charge me more than a new one so I passed. I also didn’t want to go through Chevy dealer hell again to get a new one.

Soon after GM wouldn’t sell me my Bolt, they began having Bolt battery fires and started buybacks and halted production. I dodged a bullet there.
