Re: L mode to D after complete stop

In addition to the Bolt holding in D if you come to a stop using the region paddle, it also works if you come to a stop in L, hold the regen paddle and shift to D, then let off on the regen paddle.

Re: Sadly Chevrolet is supporting Trump's attack on California's fuel standards.

I think this week's announcement re: batteries and 10 new EV models kind of illustrates why GM was opposed to tougher MPG standards. To achieve higher MPG, engineering costs need to be spent on ICEmobiles. But, GM apparently wants to put their R&D money into BEVs. It seems to me, more BEV on the...

Re: 2020 owners!

Just saw a post on Reddit that bulletin 20-NA-053 - DC Fast Charge Robustness Improvements has been issued for 2017-2019 Bolts the enable the 2020 DCFC charging curve to be applied to all models. I assume there is a cost for the service, but the improvements seem worth it. Has anyone with an older m...

Re: Regen in L doesn't always work

You need to turn on "Hill Top Reserve" in the settings menu. This! Regen is limited when SOC is near full, in my experience, somewhere like 92 - 95%. This is to prevent overcharging. The primary display will indicate the limited regen in two ways. First, on the right side where the curren...

Re: L mode to D after complete stop

When in D, the car will creep...but if you bring it to a stop with the Regen paddle, it will hold just like when in L.

Re: How common is it to charge 300 miles?

I have seen it reach 280-290 on Hilltop Reserve. I rarely charge to 100%. My daily commute is mostly downhill for the first half and it is not uncommon in the summer to hit 300-325 on the middle number. If I charged to 100%, this would be quite common. One time, when going on a trip and starting at ...

Re: Cost of charging?

Power companies transmit at very high voltage to overcome resistance\loss en-route. As a % of power delivered, resistance consumes a bit less power. Also, with a shorter charge time, if battery conditioning kicks in due to extreme temperatures, the shorter charge time translates to less conditioning...
