I've sat in the Bolt but never driven one, is it really that uncomfortable and unpractical?
I have only just sat in one and it was VERY uncomfortable. But I think options could mitigate it. I am not completely out of the Bolt arena yet but I will definitely be waiting to see the 2018 version.
I'm a shorter (5' 6") and medium build man, and I just sat in a Bolt today. The seats fit me just fine (I'm guessing my body type is the target demographic) and were "supportive", but definitely WAY TOO FIRM for long distance driving - maybe if I were younger. And don't get me started about the interior. I now understand better what the complaints were about. The Leaf S's cloth interior is much nicer than the Bolt Premier's leatherette. Making the Bolt nothing more than a one-trick pony (large battery for both range and power).
So I'm dropping consideration of the Bolt, and would only consider the model 3 (if I can save enough pennies) or leaf 2 (because of price - hoping for discounts after 6 months on the market).
