I picked up my Chevy Bolt.  Great pickup, quiet and enjoyable to drive, it's pretty much what the hot hatches of back in the day were suppose to be, but only quicker off the line. The seat's definitely horrible, that's one good thing about the i3.

I love that the car is so roomy, yet have such a small footprint.
Understeer is when you're going along the road and you turn a corner, the car goes straight on - you hit a tree ...and you die. Now oversteer is when you drive down the same bit of road come to a corner, the back comes round - you hit a tree..... and you die. The thing to remember is that oversteer is best, because then you don't see the tree that kills you!

Of the EVs, it seems like the best choice.  Do you still get a government rebate?
