Re: Turned on heater first time. Range dropped 20 miles

Re: Pigtail for Bolt

A 'pigtail' is a "very short extension cord that does socket conversion" (say, plugs into a NEMA 10-30 socket {it has a 10-30 plug} and offers a 14-30 socket). In this case (standard EVSE delivered with the Bolt), the pigtail plugs into {some form of 240V socket} and offers a NEMA 5-15 so...

Re: China far ahead of US, Europe in total electric vehicle sales And that's not counting the 200,000 plug-in trucks and

The stars have aligned for EV's in China. All the people want cars but there's no oil industry to support them. There are little to no repair shops. People don't know how to change oil or otherwise do maintenance on an ICE vehicle (EV's require little to no maintenance). The Chinese government suppo...
