week its much-anticipated chevy bolt electric car would have a much longer range than anyone expected. i got a chance to drive the bolt yesterday. note that bolt with a b, not volt with a v. the b bolt is all electric, the volt is a plug-in hybrid. chevy says the bolt will be available before the end of the year. the obvious comparison we need to make this morning is with the tesla model 3. let's talk about this. the chevy bolt is going to be 238 miles in range. that's forever. you think about a leaf, it's about 80. 37,500 and available soon. the tesla model 3 won't go as far, will be slightly, slightly less expensive and we have no idea when it's actually going to be available. tesla keeps giving us dates and they keep pushing that date forward. steve wozniak loves the bolt. he got a chance to drive it.
