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...

Re: Bolt EV on Hawaii 5-0

"CBS seems to be an advertising vehicle (pun intended) for Chevrolet"

Also, Windows. I think they finally switched to Android phones, but for the last few seasons they were using Windows phones.

CO is working with UT, MT, NM, WY on an Inter-State plan to ensure DCFC averaging...

Re: No more glare from trim above main screen!

My biggest complaint about the screen is that in bright conditions, the screen is hard to read. Would be nice if there was a retractible hood that could block the sun from hitting the screen. Not just the Bolt, but just about any car with a large touchscreen near the top of the center console.
