2020 BMW i3 -- The BMW i3 isn't as roomy inside as the Bolt, and its styling is rather radical both inside and out. The i3's cruising range isn't as long as what the Bolt can do, but it does offer an optional on-board gasoline motor generator that extends its range to about 180 miles.
2020 Nissan Leaf -- The Leaf offers a new 62-kWh battery that extends the Leaf's range to 226 miles. The base Leaf S costs nearly $7,000 less than the Bolt LT, but it is not as well-equipped nor can it go as far.
2020 Volkswagen e-Golf -- Volkswagen's e-Golf looks just like the gasoline-powered Golf, which some people may prefer to the Bolt's futuristic styling. The e-Golf's range is limited to 125 miles. Enticing lease deals may make the e-Golf a tempting alternative.
2020 Hyundai Kona EV -- The Kona EV may be the Bolt's closest competitor, with similar pricing size and range.
Used Tesla Model 3 -- While a bit pricier than the Bolt, a used Tesla Model 3 will give you more range and interior room and more cool features like autonomous driving and all-wheel drive (AWD).
