    Lame. That prior 50 mph limit on automatic braking had it failing to perform under the circumstances it would be most useful and desired. And they’re touting their new Bluetooth door unlocking and roadside assistance access features, both of which some less expensive ICE cars have had for many years. I can unlock my doors, turn on and off headlights, honk the horn, and start the car from anywhere on earth. Not exactly cutting-edge tech, and i don’t have to be within Bluetooth distance, or wait for it to pair when approaching the car.

    One feature I’d like, but don’t have is, “Siri, start my car.”

    Returned yesterday from the visit to the dealer, who installed both the battery monitoring update and the infotainment update. The only change I noticed on the drive home was that the low battery warning color on the estimated range display changed to a darker orange and activated at 40 miles estimated remaining range vs 30 miles before the update.

    Warm weather highway driving at 55-60 mph is getting 4.5 to a little over 5 miles/kwh from the battery. Variation appears to be related to terrain and wind conditions. The Bolt is regularly getting 250-300 miles on a full charge.

    ^ WHAT HE SAID....

    Although I do wish they'd allow PlugShare for obvious reasons.

    Already possible on my phone!

    Autonomous drive WILL happen. I'd say it will be quite normal in the next 20 years.

    Let's face it. Drivers are HORRIBLE!!!! I love the driving experience and have a great driving record. There are many that look at driving as a chore and are constantly distracted by their phone.

    Walked past this scene on my way into the store last night.

    If you can’t see, it’s hood up, plugged in. In the fire lane.

    Ah, OK - first look, I thought that was a painted line to go with the painted curb.

    Yep. Long-ass, likely AWG 14, extension cord running to a nearby store.

    Cant get much juice thru that cord. Good for a weed whacker maybe. If he had a BOLT he wouldnt need to do that. Could wait till he gets home and not have the guts all over the sidewalk.
