"The first ten customers received their cars at the Fremont factory on June 22, 2012 at the official launch. Production grew from 15–20 cars completed/week in August 2012 to about 1,000 cars per week in 2015"
So two months in they were only making 15-20 cars per week. I'm sure there are folks out there with more detailed counts, but I recall a verrrry slowly increasing production rate, not to mention tons of issues with the early units.
How does the bolt stack up against that?

Shouldn't be too hard, just compare the numbers of each car produced in the corresponding months following the start of manufacturing

GM knows how to build cars. Tesla is still learning.

That depends on how you define "build cars."

At the time I was happy with my Leaf's but now there is a much wider choice. If I needed more range and a Tesla S was not an option I might consider a Bolt. Who knows, By the time my eGolf lease expires the Tesla 3 might be a reality.
