Re: New Bolt owner

I currently own a 2014 Leaf SL which I’m passing along to my college age kids to drive to classes with (if they ever resume normal classes again!) Yesterday I picked up a 2017 Bolt Premier with 12,100 miles freshly off lease in my favorite color, orange. Looking forward to joining the discussion he...

Re: 2020 Bolt EV Premier Trip Report 2400 miles Labor Day

Excellent report James. I loved the detail. You're a man after my own heart. That's the way I like to plan a big trip. Then on the road take the stops as they come. If I need the plan it's there. We're happy with the Bolt too and we're in the process of getting another one instead of migrating to an...

Re: experience with lease return process?

Was that a "Premier" you're referring to? If so that is a good deal.

Re: Electrify America EV Charging Payment SNAFU

Thanks Tom. No I didn't. I was too flustered to give them a rating. I did post comments--I was not a happy camper. And there is a case about my episode floating around EA's computer. I suggested they route it to an exec and by all means if you see one of their execs, give a piece of your mind. ;) Paul

Electrify America EV Charging Payment SNAFU

It's an EV driver's nightmare. We were stuck in the middle of nowhere with an Electrify America charging station that wouldn't charge our car. It could have been worse. It was only 100 °F (38 °C) and not 120 °F (49 °C). The wind was only blowing at 15-20 mph (7-9 m/s) and not 20-40 mph (9-18 m/s). A...

Re: Chevy Bolt 225 Mile Roundtrip with 21 Percent Charge Remaining

As always, great write up! Sounds like a fun trip. I admire your persistence in writing these up. Trips like this are now so routine for me that I no longer bother. Brian, I agree. I just drive the car and as you've probably noted I don't write up trip reports much anymore unless there's something ...

Chevy Bolt 225 Mile Roundtrip with 21 Percent Charge Remaining

We're a one-car family and our vehicle is a Chevy Bolt EV. So when friends decided to go backpacking in the Golden Trout Wilderness during the Covid-19 pandemic, social distancing required that we each drive separately to and from the trailhead. In a conventional vehicle--a gasser--that can travel 3...

Re: (Generic) news of DCFC in Calif

Thanks for the comprehensive report.

Yes 395 is still a barrier though we can't get any where we'd need to stay overnight until the lockdown is lifted.
