Re: Slight Chevy Bolt Traction Battery Degradation after Nearly 30,000 Miles

Oh, and congratulations on the new 2020 Bolt! How is the extra 10% battery? Is it a significant difference based on your driving patterns, or just a minor bump? Just a bump. I posted an article based on the first 3,000 miles. I may have posted it here--though this web site is awkward for posters. H...

Slight Chevy Bolt Traction Battery Degradation after Nearly 30,000 Miles

One of the concerns about battery electric vehicles is the amount of degradation the battery suffers during normal use. We drove a Chevy Bolt for three years, clocking nearly 30,000 miles on the odometer. We tracked the car’s performance during this time, including changes in the battery’s capacity....

2020 Chevy Bolt EV Battery Capacity Anecdotal Observation

2020 Chevy Bolt EV Battery Capacity Anecdotal Observation After two months of driving a 2020 Chevy Bolt for some 2,000 miles we've found that the traction battery of our car has a capacity of 64 kWh, not the 66 kWh advertised. More interestingly, the 2020 battery pack of our car has only 2.5 kWh mor...

If you do...

Re: Los Angeles to Lake Tahoe in our Bolt

There's two CP kiosks going in at the Denny's and I think an EV Connect unit at the airport that's not activated in Mojave. In a few months EA won't be the only place to charge.

Re: RECALL

No. GM says it can't do over the air software updates.

I don't recommend that drivers use the GOM as a gauge of what their cars are doing. There are other metrics to use that are more reliable.

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

That's a good deal. You can always get a better one it may seem but it's better to take a good deal in hand than two better deals in the bush. ;)

Re: Electrify America EV Charging Payment SNAFU

I had a somewhat similar "payment declined" problem but it seemed to be related to the fact that it was a brand-new, never before used EA account. On advice of the EA rep, I used their app and had no problem charging along 395. The "tap your phone" option didn't work for me. yea...

I kept mine in the low 40s and got 30k, well I replaced them at 28k since it was a lease.
