Re: EVgo DC FC pricing changes coming Feb 12, 2019

Are you suggesting that this "connection fee" was for only EVGo L2 charging and not on their DCFC? That would explain why I never encountered it before I joined, because I never used EVGo for L2. IIRC, the $4.95 connection/session fee to start a DC FC session was for DC FC only and not L2...

Re: EVgo DC FC pricing changes coming Feb 12, 2019

Heck, I recall EVgo even charging a membership/activation fee to join. I joined during a time when that was waived (in Sept 2016). Funny, I did the same (it was "national EV week" or some such, and they gave out membership/cards for free at that time). I've still never used it. (The EVgo ...

Re: EVgo DC FC pricing changes coming Feb 12, 2019

EVgo doesn't play the fee game that EA is wont to do Well, they certainly used to do so , when they were pretty much the only game in town, and it was a doozy : $5 connection fee !! When was the EVGo connection fee $5? I started with them back in 2013 and I do not ever remember such a fee. Connecti...

Re: Hello from ChargePoint!

Having a way to terminate charge (with Home Charger) via a SOC % setting would be an awesome enhancement, mainly to prolong battery life. While the Bolt has Hilltop mode, which stops charge at 92% or so; I would rather stop ~50%-75% for most days (particularly when it's over 100F) since I don't nee...

Re: The Q4 Numbers are in for GM.

Well all know that the majority of GM's marketing spend goes towards their bread & butter: Trucks & SUV's. In 1-2 years, lease returns are going to start piling up on dealer lots. That's when the bottom falls out of the resale market, and when I start shopping around. 2021 is going to be th...

Re: The Q4 Numbers are in for GM.

I think part of the problem is the lack of marketing and lack of awareness of the heavy Bolt discounting in the US. I only suddenly became interested and started digging around after someone on an EV (possibly Leaf) Facebook made me aware of the heavy discounting. Until about 2 weeks ago, a Leaf had...

Re: Calif: Purple HOV decals

Yep. The first I saw was on a Prius Prime in the past week or so. I just bought a new '19 Bolt Premier. I plan to hold out until I actually need them for later expiration, which means likely waiting for whatever comes after purple or after that. Currently, I don't travel during rush hour much so th...

I think that purple is it - the current program ends in 2023, doesn't it? No. Purple stickers expire 1/1/2023: https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/?1dmy&urile=wcm:path:/dmv_content_en/dmv/vr/decal Per https://ww2.arb.ca.gov/resources/fact-sheets/clean-air-vehicle-decals Program expiration dates A...
