At 120 miles remaining on the GOM I should have been getting more than 33Kw.


I am sorry, but what SOC is that? GOM is not a reliable way to gauge SOC. It should have been 38 kW for the step down but that's not a big difference with 33 kW.

Re: DCFC Stations Bakersfield to the Sierra Nevada East Side Coming

Could you post all your car details. They are not on your signature. Are you driving a 2020?

Re: DCFC Stations Bakersfield to the Sierra Nevada East Side Coming

Hmmm. The charts I've seen show the first step down is at 55% to less than 40 kW, like 37 kW for Bolts up to 2020. So 33% isn't that far off.

Re: DCFC Stations Bakersfield to the Sierra Nevada East Side Coming

I took a casual drive up Hiway 14 last Sunday and discovered a fully functional EA station in Mojave with two 150A and two 350A chargers available. I used the 350A charger for 30 minutes in my 2019 Bolt EV but was disappointed that it charged at 33Kw from 120 to 180 miles on the GOM. Yeah, Mojave h...

Update on Non-Tesla DC Fast Charging Station Density in North America

In the fall of 2018 I published a surprisingly controversial article ranking states and provinces by their non-Tesla, DC fast-charging station density relative to population. The article, California Lags in DC Fast-Charging Station Density for Electric Vehicle s, was based on data from the Alternati...

DCFC Stations for Boron, California

In a region of California with a dearth of DC fast-charging stations, the owner of Love Truck Stops plans to install three 50 kW DCFC stations at a new truck stop in Boron, California. The station on Hwy 58 will serve a major east-west corridor that connects I-5 with I-15 and I-40. There are very fe...

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

That looks like a very good deal for a Premier with all fees included.

Whoa, did you create that? Where did you get your data?

I am tracking our Bolts SOH if you need our data.

Re: Is "A Better Routeplanner" Better? A Review for the Bolt

Good tip and excellent presentation. How are you able to insert photos and charts without posting them online somewhere else? I post all my articles on my own web site. Then I repost them here if I think they're relevant. I then have a link to the image on my web site--that's how this site works. N...
