    *sigh* Tesla-killer. Why, Business Insider, WHY?!

    They're going to try and compete with the Tesla Model 3, but the S will still plug along just fine either way.

    TLR for those that don't know, the Bolt is GM's all-electric, 200 miles per charge, $30k after rebates car. They want to get it to market as soon as possible to fill demand and beat Tesla to the punch. This article specifically is about the fact it's going to be built at an existing (and under-utilized) plant in Michigan.

    The concept looks like this (more proof it won't be killing Tesla any time soon)

    not bad... But, it's not looking like Tesla. More of an electric Prius killer than anything.

    Looking at it, it doesn't even look like it has as much storage space or seating as a Model S.

    Depends on if the whole front area is a trunk, like with the S, and how much the rear cuts in. But yeah, I'm assuming it's Fit-sized.

    Edit: Looks like there's a ton of space in the back. And again, this is just the concept, who knows how much it will change for production.

    It will still fail due to GM bean counters cutting important corners.

    This.

    I'm not convinced GM can execute a new car and get it 100%. There's always something where I think "if they'd tried harder *here* this whole thing would be so much nicer"


    Otherwise I like it. If they can make those rear seats fold down for a flat surface they might be into something.

    I'd also like to see a ICE powered one, much like Volkswagen does with their Up! A 1 liter triple and a 1.2 liter diesel.

    Yeah, it could be a good electric equivalent of the Honda Fit/Jazz if it's properly executed.

    Yeah, "Tesla killer."

    If it's anything like the Chevy Sonic I rented last week, it's going to be pretty lame.

    I'm really surprised roofs of electric/hybrid cars aren't used for solar panels. It won't charge a car right away or anything, but it's at least gotta help out a bit, right?
