I could see the model hierarchy for the 2019 model year being S40, SV40, SV60, SL60. Having 150 EPA miles for real transaction prices of $27,500 is a steal in today’s market. Having a 225+ mile car with active thermal management for about $40 grand would steal many Bolt sales. Having the S40 on the bottom is sure to steal compliance car sales like Ioniq, Focus, and eGolf.
In today's market yes it would be a steal, but other manufacturers are finally starting to get in on the EV market, so I would expect within 2-3 years the norm will be 300+ mile cars with charging times of 20 minutes or less on DC Fast charging for around $20,000 before any incentives.
