Bolt Pattern: GM Seeks Trademark for ‘Bolt EUV’

General Motors has already announced it will build a new electric Chevrolet to serve as a sibling to the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt. This makes sense, as the technology and underpinnings of that car – not to mention all the R&D investment – should be shared with other GM machines. In today’s market, that likely means […] The post Bolt Pattern: GM Seeks Trademark for ‘Bolt EUV’ appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Don't Say a Word

Tommy Bolt, winner of the 1958 US Open, tells the story of an incident he had during one of his golf tournaments. Bolt arrived at the golf course for the tournament and was approached by a youngster, "Mr. Bolt, do you need a caddy, sir?" Bolt went to the caddy master and asked about the youngster. The man said, "He's a real good caddy, knows the course, the greens, and the rules of the game. But he talks a lot." So Bolt went back to the youngster and said, "You can caddy for me on one condition:...

How I Became a Successful Travel Blogger — My Smartest Decisions

How did I become a successful travel blogger? It sure wasn’t intentional from the start! Back when I started Adventurous Kate in 2010, I had no idea it was even possible to make money with a blog. Recently I read the book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, which explains how certain individuals became successful. People tend to believe that genius leads to success — for example, that Bill Gates became successful because he was so smart. But that’s not all of it. Intelligence is a huge factor. So is ...

Rubbing salt into the wounds The Arsenal result would have been hard to stomach for a Manchester United fan like Usain Bolt but things got worse following the game. Manchester United travelled to the Emirates in the hope of continuing their stunning form across all competitions.

It’s A Keeper: A K series built for a footballing legend

When one of Spain’s most legendary goalkeepers wanted a hot steed based on a BMW K series ‘brick,’ he knew just the team to call: Bolt Motor Co. of Valencia. Andrés Palop, known for his penalty-stopping prowess at Sevilla FC, approached Bolt boss Adrián Campos with a simple brief for a custom build; clean lines, a bit of a dark feeling, and some red touches. Adrián and his team are known for their ability to produce clinically clean customs from unlikely platforms. This time they chose a 1...

Was 2018 as Good a Year for Electric Vehicles as They Say?

Teslas galore. But at the Tesla factory, not on the streets of most cities. Supporters of battery electric vehicles (EV and/or BEV) are rapturous about the 81% increase in electric vehicles sold in 2018 compared to 2017.  This table shows the breakdown, with a total of 361,307 vehicles sold in the US in 2018, compared to 199,826 sold in 2017. We should add a disclaimer.  We love electric-powered vehicles.  We’d like nothing more than to get a fully loaded Tesla, and, failing that, just about an...

I drove a $44,000 Chevy Bolt for a weekend and saw just how far electric cars have come — but I also discovered a huge problem (GM)

I drove a 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV for a weekend at the end of July. The version I drove cost $43,905. The base price for the Bolt's standard trim is $37,495. It was the first time I'd driven an electric vehicle in real-world conditions for more than an hour. I was impressed with the Bolt's ride quality, acceleration, handling, and driver-assistance features. But when I tried to charge the vehicle, I realized the limitations of current charging infrastructure.    When General Motors' Chevrolet ...

Usain Bolt's trial done at Central Coast Mariners, will leave club

Usain Bolt has quit his A-League trial, rejecting a contract offer from the Central Coast Mariners.

The modern classic, Honda style: Bolt’s 1995 Seven Fifty

By the time the nineties rolled around, the reputation of the Honda CB750 was losing its luster. The iconic straight four had softened, and the F2 model was more suited to cruising than blasting through canyons. But the build quality and engineering was still top-notch, which makes the ‘Seven Fifty’ a good used buy today. This sleek build from Spain’s Bolt Motor Co. ditches the clunky styling and cranks up the dynamics with a major suspension upgrade. “We built this for our friend Santiag...
