    I know there are more than a few of us that currently drive Volts. I threw together a quick comparison of the dimensions just so I'd have a better idea of what to expect from the Model 3. Maybe someone else will find it useful as well.

    Top speed is really only 102? Is that limited or is that it?

    Look at a Bolt yesterday, I was not impress, the back area looks small and seeing a gear shift gives me chills

    I really think there are very different criteria for measuring interior dimensions on different cars. There is no way the Model 3 only has a half inch more rear leg room than a Volt. I have owned a Volt for 5 years and a can of sardines has more room in it than a Volt. Model 3 from every interior picture I have seen has A LOT more leg room back there than a Volt.
