Last Friday I arranged work so that Gary and I could go buy the car Gary has finally decided on: a Chevy Bolt. (Not a Volt, Volts were an embarrassment, caught fire, etc..)
Another all-electric, but this one has better range. These were his conditions:
- It can not benefit Elon Musk in any way.
- No flashy interior lighting, because of his migraine.
- Not be too much of a behemoth, which is impossible because of the last condition ...
- Get around 200-300 miles in range.
The Chevy Bolt sounded perfect. He found a great deal. Turned out it was a Costco kind of a deal: you had to buy volume. Like, you had to own a pizza company and need a fleet of delivery cars. In fact, according to his subsequent research, dealerships don't sell these Bolts, they auction them off.
So, that was a disappointment. I soothed him by saying, "I'm sure you can find exactly what you want," which is now a BMW, god help me.
Hours Later: Now he says he might go to a dealer and have them order what he wants. 'So," I said, "Why not just order it yourself online?" UNTHINKABLE.
