As a basic timeline, Wozniak took to his personal Facebook to rave about the 2017 Bolt EV in September. He even stated, “I expect to be switching cars soon!” However, that wasn’t the case.
Wozniak then followed up said Facebook post with another update showing a photo of yet another Tesla Model S he and his wife had purchased. However, he said he would still consider a Bolt EV.
“I’m still considering the Bolt. It had a lot of things nicer about it than the Tesla,” Wozniak stated. “But I’m concerned about how it would work on our favored road trips. So far, Tesla’s the only game in town for that.”
But, on January 3, 2017, Wozniak Tweeted a photo of a shiny, new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV stating,”New car will be our main car.”
It seems Wozniak was persuaded by the Bolt EV and its 238 miles of charge after all. We’re sure he opted for the optional DC fast charging unit to ensure charging downtimes are kept to a minimum, too.
