For the US market, yes, if you're comparing to Bolt. For outside the US, maybe not late or not so late?
I don't know what the status of the Opel Ampera e is (Opel version of the Bolt) but GM sold off Opel to PSA (https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/ ... new-cookie
) recently. And, from what I understand, there is no right-hand drive version of the Bolt, so that'd make it n/a in the UK (would need to be Vauxhall), Japan, and other RHD countries. Not surprisingly, https://electrek.co/2017/11/06/chevy-bo ... se-europe/
mentions Opel has to buy Ampera e's from GM.
I took a quick look at https://cleantechnica.com/2017/10/31/te ... car-sales/
and don't see any Opels there. Foreign to Japan vehicles seem to have a TINY market share in Japan. So, perhaps the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi group feels they have a comfortable position? Or, they're just resting on their laurels (right or wrong)?
