Everyone keeps telling me I should have a Tesla... but I think they're wrong. Finally, after two years, here is my review of the Chevy Volt.

  • Why not go with the Bolt? Then you could have done all your driving on electric and used ones are pretty cheap.

    • @webcomment hey there. I just heard that Chevy is doing a recall on the bolt due to battery fires. There's also an OTA update being released on 11/17/20. I hope you're safe and all the best.

    • @Linus Tech Tips Just got a 2017 Bolt. Love it. We have a Toyota Highlander for long trips but I suspect the 200+ mile range on my Bolt will be fine as well even if it may be slightly inconvenient at times. Thanks for the great video and information.

  • Well, you just made a video of why a volt made sense for you. A tesla makes a lot of more sense for a lot of people. For example, as someone who wants to be a band director in Texas, I plan to get a cybertruck, since its crazy safety features, immense storage, and towing capacity just make sense for a band director.

  • When Tesla can make a reliable car I'll consider it. But bumpers that randomly come off when you drive, is just the latest in a long string of issues that completely eat away the no paying for petrol... I can't wait for an all electric Honda.

  • Yes do more. I know you'll never beat the likes of Top Gear or The Grand Tour, but from a Tech perspective you've got it covered and that's the point. In general most vehicle reviews focus on speed, power, handling, space and comfort. And that's fine people want to know those points when it comes to comfort for commutes and utility for a large family. But as we are moving towards electric vehicles tech is becoming more and more important. I believe if you review enough vehicles and their 'Tech' you could lay down a standard for all future reviews by others. If you get there first and set those standards over the next 5-10 years when Top Gear becomes Top Volt (haha), they could end up following your standards when breaking down, comparing and recommending future cars.

  • As a car guy, I personally hate electric cars for many reasons, but Tesla’s in particular are overpriced and overrated garbage. If you’re looking for an electric car, the only plus Tesla’s have is the range, but their horrible build qualities, high prices, waiting times for repairs, and the fact that it’s electric so it’s heavy, doesn’t handle very well and you also need to plan out charge stations and wait that extra time for it to charge on road trips. Also, for the price ($80,000+) you are starting to compete with luxury cars like Audi’s, BMW’s and Mercedes where the Model S cannot even come close to competing.

    • Also, with the Model X as an “SUV”, on paper it may have the same storage capacity as bigger SUVs but when you actually try and pack one. Since that luggage space is split between two different compartments and the awkward shape of the roof line causes most of that shape to be useless in most cases and makes it so the Model X only has barely much more usable luggage capacity than the Model S

  • You missed the fact that Tesla cars are basically always connected to Tesla and because of that they detect some third party spare parts (that do exactly the same as the factory original but half the price or less) and the car wont start, forcing the consumer to buy Tesla's overpriced junk. That is more important than all points on this video together.

  • Anyone who has tried to road trip in a Tesla knows how annoying it is. It took almost 9 hours from Vancouver to Kelowna.(that's about 5 hour drive in a gas powered car) That includes time to wait for a super charger(2x 45-60 min) and actually charge the car(2x45). Also the distance estimator was really off. I made it to the Kelowna super charger with 11km left when it initially said I would have 40. Also this was during the summer of 2020.. I cant even imagine how bad it would be(of if it is even possible) in the winter with the cold weather range loss of 30 to 40%. I also done like that Tesla doesnt include a buffer in the battery.. you lose 5 to 10% of your max range after the first year or so.

  • Your "clean" electric cars cause massive environmental disaster where rare earth metals needed for the batteries are dug up, along with massive greenhouse gas emissions. So they are neither clean nor "climate friendly" and the same goes for "clean energy" production, which also causes environmental destruction where it's implemented. It's all a con designed to create an excuse for and acceptance of destruction of free market capitalism/economic freedom.

  • Why this "batteri in landfill" thinking? A car battery is expensive, therefore it will most likely first be installed for a second life application with less demanding power needs. After that it will, of course, be recycled becouse no one like tossing money away. And a modular battery pack can be repaired or refreshed simply by changing the faulty or least capable modules.
