GM just trolled Tesla in the most subtle way possible

GM just trolled Tesla in the most subtle way possible

At NAIAS this week, GM released battery and motor specs for the upcoming Bolt EV. Reader's Digest version: 60 kWh battery, 200 horsepower. That's cool.

GM also released a new batch of press photos to go along with the announcement. Look at that photo above.

Now zoom in:

That's the intersection outside Tesla's Palo Alto facility. GM literally used Bolt test mules to pull off a trollish drive-by photo opp of the industry's hottest electric car company.

Elon Musk loves a good, well-timed jab, and this is about as well-timed as they come: Musk is expected to unveil the Tesla Model 3, an affordable electric that'll compete with the Bolt, this March.

This isn't the first time GM has taken a shot at Tesla, and I get the sense that it won't be the last — the EV wars could get a lot more interesting before the dust settles.
