Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

So far, this is pretty similar to our e-Golf and LEAF. Since EV's don't have excess heat, we tend to not run the defroster when we don't have to, obviously. The LEAF has a deeper trough, and the e-Golf has a more closed trough.

Re: Future of the Dealership EV Model

Re: Used 12 SE Premium or Used 14?

Re: Volkswagen e-Golf
