Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

I'm in the same boat, I'm just starting to think about what I want to do with my bolt. I actually have much less than 10k/yr, I'm doing about 5k/yr, so I don't know how that might affect the residual? Is that number negotiable when you turn in the car? Doesn't the dealer want to sell it to you? Also...

Re: Question: Ever been ICE'd?

This just happened to me for the first time, this past Friday afternoon. My Bolt was a bit low on charge and I decided to go to the mall near my office, where there is an EVgo DC charging station with 2 Combo plugs. I pulled into the parking structure where the station is, and there was a Chevy Volt...

Re: Chevy free Basic APP through Onstar no longer free.

I leased my Bolt in October 2017. I'm still getting the free Basic plan, including charging status, tire pressure and the key fob (although that last one has never worked for me). I just checked it this morning, in fact. I wonder if I've been "Grandfathered" in?

So I responded to an email from EVgo and received a $175 credit for charging my Bolt. I tried it for the first time at a station at the mall near my house. I expected it to disconnect after 45 minutes, but it went for the full 60. I guess this freebie is considered a "Plan" in their parlan...

Re: EVgo $175 credit for Bolt Owners

Yes, I have an account with them, although I very rarely use it so I'm just pay as you go.

EVgo $175 credit for Bolt Owners

I just received an email from Ev go offering me a $175 credit for 6 months because of my Bolt. I signed up and it seems to be legitimate I received $175 credit immediately showing up in the app and it's valid through March 19th of next year. Have other people here received the same email?

Re: I-95 ARC, does it exist?

I thought I'd follow up on this a bit. I saw a few days ago, that Nissan and EvGO have announced that they have "finished" the ARC on I-95 https://insideevs.com/nissan-evgo-i-95-fast-charging/ Of course, I find it funny that none of the press releases or any information from Nissan or EVGo...

Re: Extending battery life

So I have a 5 mile commute each way to work. Typically, I'll plug my car in once a week or so, but leave it overnight so it's full the next day. I haven't really had the car discharged under 50% except for one longer road trip where it got down to around 30%. However, 99% of my charging has been don...

Re: Hello from ChargePoint!

Hi. So you do know that there is an EAST COAST in the United States, in addition to California, right? People here in New England would also like to travel along our interstates, secure in our knowledge that we can recharge our cars. Right now, if I want to drive to NYC from Boston, there is exactly...

Re: I-95 ARC, does it exist?

So I went and looked for the info I posted for "a guy" who was going to do the trip in order to link it here ... and *you* were the guy! ;) So, I guess not really necessary, but here it is (places to stop between Boston and NYC) : http://www.mychevybolt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=...
