Re: California Lags in DC Fast-Charging Station Density for Electric Vehicles

Almost all of the West Coast installs are CHAdeMO only, so they don't do Bolt owners a bit of good. " Almost all " ?!!? That's not true at all (at least not in Calif). OR has a large number of CHAdeMO-only stations because they started putting them in before there were many CCS vehicles o...

Re: Charge Point Missing in Action

Why? It doesn't make sense to promo a product to people who don't already own the necessary equipment (an EV). Those that have had their EV for 3 months (or more) either already have their EVSE, or know they aren't going to buy one. The "Drive Electric" events would pretty much be a waste...

Charge Point Missing in Action

I have to say I'm disappointed that I didn't see a Charge Point representative at our local National Drive Electric Week show last week in Steilacoom, Wa. While I don't expect them to attend every show, however, when you have over 100 EVs and PHEVs in a show, it would seem they could make an effort ...

Re: New DC chargers in Tacoma

The existing "fast" chargers along I-5 between Portland and Seattle are anything but fast. Last time I looked, every last one was an old compliance-car charger that is barely faster than an L2 30a EVSE, and not nearly up to the DC charge rate that a Bolt can take. There may be a few faste...

Re: New DC chargers in Tacoma

I think they need to install a few fast chargers on I-5 between Tacoma and Longview. There's a pretty long stretch through southern Washington State that's a fast charging desert. The Bolt can span the distance, but there's a lot of shorter range EVs that can't. DuPont and Chehalis installs are sch...

Re: On the state of the affordable long-range electric car

I looked at the Tesla rollover photos and it does look like the tablet screen is on. That's something positive out of a nasty accident.

Re: On the state of the affordable long-range electric car

it well probably be very, very reliable.! Probably? I don't have a crystal ball, but the electronics in the Tesla 3 where compared to military grade product. That leaves me optimistic as far as the reliability. I haven't read anything comparing the Bolt electronics to military grade. It would be in...
