The future - an affordable 5 star EV

The perfect urban car. Only downside is that it doesn't yet have the highway charging infrastructure needed for cross country travel. I've read some comments about the front seat not being that comfortable. Maybe that's true if you way 200 pounds, but for me they are very comfortable.

Range is disappointing

by Jay_001 from CA | January 11, 2020

I really liked this car in the beginning but the mileage has been extremely disappointing and have a quality issue. I drive 200 miles every weekend and have only been able to make that drive a few times without charging. In the winter in California I often get under 170 miles. Chevy should also invest in a mileage estimator that learns from previous drives.

My 2nd Electric Car

by LarryWC2015 from Pompano Beach, FL | November 08, 2019

I am able to drive 240 miles on a full charge. The acceleration at times scares me. Even "worse" in sport mode. The force will actually push you back into your seat. The handling is great, it moves in and around highway traffic with ease, thanks to the engine power. Inside, the display is huge, all of the controls are easy to get to. The rear view mirror is actual a display of the back (or front) camera. The technology on this car is the best I've ever had. Front seats are a little tight, but, still okay on longer trips. My lease is up next year. I don't think I'm going to look at anything else, just get another one!
