A follow-up: So I followed the advice I read here and got out to drive a 2019 Bolt. I liked its responsiveness and poise, as well as its short nose -- I felt very confident parking it. I liked the tech. The top-down mosaic camera is delightfully scifi. I did not like the interior quality. My point of reference is a 16-year-old Pontiac, and this felt like a sidegrade. I'm the sort of guy who would drive a 16-year-old Pontiac, though, so that wasn't a big disappointment. I greatly disliked the seats. I am about 5.5ft, 125lb, and the seats felt absurdly flat and hard. Restuffing the seats is a must. Ultimately, I didn't really love it. I re-ran the road trip charging calculations and realized the Bolt's <55kW charging would force me to drive our minivan on several of our annual road trips. Due to this, a plug-in hybrid would bring my carbon footprint lower overall. With this in mind, I started over and drove the Honda Clarity. To make a long story short, loved it. After much negotiation, it's now in my driveway. I really appreciate what you guys are doing here. Having an experienced community to turn to for common-sense advice and data is extremely valuable, and made it possible for me to make a large step towards decarbonization. Give yourselves a pat on the back for me.
