Re: 2020 Bolt EV Premier Trip Report 2400 miles Labor Day

To add: I’d read elsewhere that south to north was generally a little more downhill on the BRP than starting on the north end, so that’s what I did, which worked out great. Plus that Saturday was an utterly gorgeous day without a ton of BRP traffic. Never had crowding on any pullout, including the h...

Re: 2020 Bolt EV Premier Trip Report 2400 miles Labor Day

Thanks for the detail. Looks like you averaged around 3.9 miles/kWh for the whole trip, which is excellent! Can you provide more detail about charging stops (locations) along the BRP? I'd also like to do the BRP. thanks I think the car said 3.8 trip avg but that was probably rounded. But yes that s...

Re: 2020 Bolt EV Premier Trip Report 2400 miles Labor Day

Thanks Paul! I learned a lot on this trip which will enable me to be more confident in extending distance per leg. All the expected SOC and GOM range estimates were pretty accurate, so I will probably need to do less agressive planning on the next big trip. My daily commute is just 12mi round trip s...

Re: Heat On While Fast Charging?

Is there a way to have the cabin heat run while fast charging? You can charge, start charging, or end charging with the car turned on. Ha, edging off topic here, but twice on my last road trip EA phone reps absolutely instructed me to "turn the car off and shut the door" before starting c...

2020 Bolt EV Premier Trip Report 2400 miles Labor Day

I just bought a 2020 Bolt EV Premier, and took a long road trip on Labor Day weekend, starting from home in Omaha Nebraska, through TN NC VA OH and points between. Mostly I always wanted to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, which I did - and the weather was perfect. The road leading to the Great Smoky M...

Re: Charging at Electrify America

Here in NC and Virginia, they have shutdown virtually all their stations. On PlugShare they have posted messages saying they are “upgrading the site to improve performance “. Any idea what the heck they are doing. Nice they did it right before Labor Day as in many cases they were the only option wi...
