Re: VINDICATED: Finally - GM to launch updated vehicle navigation system

Yeah, I am a convert to CarPlay/AndroidAuto. It works for me--as long as there's cell coverage. Unfortunately, there's quite a bit of area we go that doesn't have cell phone coverage.

Re: Measured battery capacity 63.2 kWh

This is similar to my results.

See my article 2020 Chevy Bolt EV Battery Capacity Anecdotal Observation on this web site.

My conclusion was 64 kWh from purchase to 2,000 miles.

My take is that marketing took control of the numbers when LG Chem began building batteries in Michigan.

No RFID card, no credit card, no app. Plug in and go. That’s what we found on one of our recent Covid-19 escapes when we needed to charge at a new ...

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....
