6.5 sec 0-60 is quick for a $30,000 sub incentive EV with 266 ft.lbs torque and 200 hp

Apples to oranges comparison to get the feel of the Bolts power

2017 Dodge Charger $30,000 , 4.2 sec 0-60 v6 in 392 trim , 290 HP 260 ft.lbs ,19 city 22 hwy

HELLCAT version $65,000 3.4 sec 0-60 707 hp 650 ft.lbs , 13 city 22 hwy

I fudged that post

Those are the Bolt and Chargers 0 - 60 times not 1/4 mile

The Chargers were faster then I had first thought when I went looking , it looks like gas tech has improved a fair bit in these last few years
Not so much with economy those look like 1970's ratings !

I went to test drive a new Volt tonight. The Bolt had the volt parked in and we had to move it to test drive the Gen 2 Volt.
Well we had the keys so I had test drive the Bolt first. 
The bolt drove great faster than I thought it would be. 0-60 6.5 seconds impressive.
I really liked driving it in L with the regen paddle.
I like the car my wife does not agree (she did not drive it).
I also liked the new Volt. I just put my Volt up for sale so we will see how it goes.
