It should be clear people who buy the Bolt are mostly previous Leaf, Volt and Prius PHEV owners. OK maybe throw in one or two previous Model S or i3 owners. On the other hand for Model 3 it may have some buyers from that group but majority of new owners will be coming from BMW, Audi or Acura. BMW 3 series is tremendously popular among young people here in the Silicon Valley. Everyone except one of the half dozen BMW owners in my office has a M3 reservation. None of them even care what the Bolt is. They want a cool car not just an electric car. That's just the way it is. Any Bolt and Model 3 comparison without taking note of this fact is pointless.
