I enjoyed the Oct. 12 Economy & Business article "2017 marks the rise of the all-electric vehicle." It seemed odd, though, that there was no mention of the Chevrolet Bolt.

The Bolt, which is similar in specs and pricing to the Tesla Model 3, has been available to consumers for some time. My wife and I were waiting for just such a combination of capability and price in an electric vehicle, and we bought a Bolt a few months ago and haven’t been disappointed.

Perhaps it lacks the Tesla mystique, but it is a well-made, fun-to-drive car that lives up to its promise. All the attention still seems to be on the Tesla, which is not yet widely available to the masses. (For the record, I have no stake in Chevrolet other than as a customer.)
