Think EVs aren’t for the performance-oriented buyer?

Pon & BuzzThis really happened today:

Pon, is a very cool client of mine. He bought a Z06 Corvette from me and recently drove a Bolt EV and LOVED it! He has multiple performance cars, including a Mercedes Benz, 1979 and 1981 Trans Ams and used to have a Lamborghini. He said the Bolt will be the next addition to his flock! He loved the acceleration, one pedal driving, quietness and cornering.

For the uninitiated, a Z06 Corvette Stingray (7th generation, or “C7” as it is known among the Corvette aficionados) has 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. It is truly a beast.

Pon was visiting the dealership for an oil change and stopped by my old desk, in the main showroom. Seeing another salesperson there, he called my mobile number, to ask where I was. I told him about Electric Avenue, so he stopped by to visit, as he waited for his Stingray’s service to be completed.

We were chatting about my move and what Electric Avenue is all about, when a Bolt EV pulled up. The driver, who I know well, through us the keys and we took it for a spin.

The rest, as they say, is history.

…or prehistory, since he hasn’t bought the Bolt EV yet.
