Re: buzzing, humming, fan blowing while charging???

Yep on the above. https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/battery-conditioning.33279/#post-512173 may help. https://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=565246#p565246 is what it sounds like. And, as I posted at https://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=566540#p566540 When that's going on, not only are...

Re: I just got my ChargePoint Card,

Checking Plugshare for stations along the way is a MUST! Filter by J1772 and SAE Combo, assuming your vehicle has SAE Combo. If you don't have the orange dust cover under an orange flap covering 2 holes for 2 pins, you do NOT have SAE Combo inlet. If you don't have it, then you'll be limited to leve...

Re: So, is my Chevy Bolt really an Opel product?

I just finished https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULQr96t1vmU. It's 10.5 minutes long. Was interesting. Didn't realize that Opel/Vauxhall had been bleeding cash so badly.

Re: How to make the car follow the charging schedule?

^^^ Thanks! I still have my '13 Leaf SV and through its nav system, the timers are pretty simple albeit a bit limited. The ones on the Bolt look real complicated and I haven't bothered to use them once as I've not needed to charge it at home once yet. I guess I have something to look "forward&q...

Re: So, is my Chevy Bolt really an Opel product?

think Opel is a GM-owned European brand that they put the Bolt under. They call it the Ampera-E or something like that. Yes except the first part is WAS. Yep on what theothertom said. GM sold Opel (aka Vauxhall in the UK) to PSA Groupe. https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/general-motors/2017/08/...

Re: What "other" BEVs are for sale in Ohio?

Regarding the Frackville, PA guy, I hope he doesn't mind me reposting part of what he wrote. It's accessible via a forum where you can see it all via a free account. It's just that the sub-area isn't open to indexing or viewing w/o being logged in. I was just at my local Chevy dealer that I have bee...

Re: How to set charge limit

US market '19 Bolt now has a charge limiter. You can see a video of it at https://insideevs.com/2019-chevy-bolt-g ... e-updates/.

I own a '19 Bolt Premier and I can attest to it being there and use it.

Hyundai Ioniq electric is/was "special order everywhere", but reported to be almost impossible to get even in California.. Ioniq Electric was for the longest time virtual vaporware and So Cal only. Eventually, it did spread to a bunch of CARB emissions states, but only in the past maybe 6...

60 Minutes piece on EVs in China

Piece was decent but obviously meant for a layperson. Looks like it's available for free at https://www.cbsnews.com/news/electric-cars-chinas-drive-to-dominate-the-industry-60-minutes/. I'm guessing it'll end up behind a CBS paywall after a few weeks. Some interesting pieces included Nio's charging ...
