The Bolt offers 1-foot driving, which is fantastic. I thought it would feel clumsy or awkward, but it's completely natural. When I end up driving their car, I always use the single pedal operation. I also enjoy the ability to sit in a parking lot or drive through or whatever and use the AC without having to run the engine. Having a "full tank" every morning and never making a diversion for a gas station is remarkably freeing.
I still own ICEs, and I suspect I will til they pry them from my cold dead hands. I like the sound, I like the feel, I like the experience. BUT those things aren't so available or applicable on my daily commute. Traffic, speed limits, etc. all work against really enjoying a capable car. On the daily, BEVs are really, really nice to have around. I don't have one at the moment - after turning in the Fiat I decided to wait and see how the Bolt/3/? shake out - but I am 100% confident that I'll get another within a year or so. It was a great experience, and I'm anxious to enjoy those benefits again.
