There is a video online where one of the older Smart cars is driven at 112km/hr into a concrete block and afterwards the passenger door still opens and closes!
What happened to the dummy?

Maybe you can get some dummy to get to take over your lease while paying you some cash. :) I've seen a couple of listings on leasebuster that are stupid enough to get into.

So if no one takes over your lease, you will stick with the Bolt and ask for a refund of your Tesla M3 deposit?

What's the residual value on your Bolt after three years and the battery and drive motor unit are warrantied to eight years? Makes most sense to drive the car into the ground or sell just before the eight years are up. That has been my specialty -- haven't sold a car since moving back to Canada in 03.

Tesla is my only fair compare to bolt ... leaf has a long way to go. But i'm sure leaf will be on par soon, not yet though

I need 2 cars for sure as we are a family of 6. i would ideally get a plug in hybrid 6 seater when they launch. until then i would get a refund of tesla or ride it for an year and then sell it since there will be demand for it. I was hoping to get my money back to sell within an year? what say?

4 year lease done will have a price tag for 10K buyout. bat is warranted for 8-9 years (i have to check). I agree , driving it to the ground is my plan or rid of it within decent warranty. Since electric is evolving fast! not know what's next soon.

wow, $10k for 4 year-old Bolt? I might as well shop for a used >200 mile BEV at that price or take over a short-term lease and buy it out.

If you can wait, 2019 Leaf ( and other cars ) will have a new dense,cheaper lithium ion battery from LG that will give 60 kwh and give at least 225 mile range.
