Re: EVGo announces a new partnership with GM for 5 year tripling of stations

I feel like EVGo is pretty clueless as to EV drivers' actual needs. Today, 115 million Americans live within a 15-minute drive of an EVgo fast charger. This fact is practically useless. Unless you cannot charge at home, practically noone charges at a DCFC within 15 minutes of where they live! And if...

Re: why drive in D even on interstate?

I drive in D on the highway out of laziness. When driving in L, the pedal is very sensitive to foot movements. It gets tiring hold my foot steady for that long. I end up regen'ing when I didn't mean to, and have to accelerate back up to speed. It's just much easier to use D. Of course, when cruise c...

Re: Heated rear seats

I love ... But in addition to that, what really sold me on the Bolt premier was the 360 degree overhead camera. That feature is spectacular !! I had my grandson convinced that I had my own personal satellite following over me, until he said: "But Papa, what happens when you go into a tunnel!&q...

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.

Re: 2020 owners!

I'm doing my first DCFC in my 2020 now. I have noticed on a 58-60 degree day it is not stair stepping down on the charge rate. It has been a slow continuous taper down in charge rate. Started at 35% battery and 44kw charge rate and it has been a slow taper down. Now at 85% charge and 20 kw charge r...

Re: Heated rear seats

My 2017 Bolt has heated rear seats. That's one of the reasons I went with the Premier over the LT. (The other was the roof rails). I have kids who are often with me. They sure appreciate the heated rear seats. They now complain about their mother's car which doesn't have them.

Re: Any Bolt owners in the Northeastern PA area?

I don't live in your area, but I drive through on occasion. The in-laws have a vacation home in Equinunk, north of you. I also pass through on I-81. I sure would love to see a DCFC station go in around Scranton / Wilkes-Barre.

Re: Transformer Installed at EA's Bakersfield Station

As feared if any CHAdeMO car came by they would have to wait for her to finish on the CCS plug because they couldn't use the CCS unit 4 that I was leaving. This reminds me that good charging etiquette at a station equipped with multiple chargers but only one with CHAdeMO would be to avoid using the...

Re: Goodbye to my Beloved Bolt

Congrats on the upgrade! The biggest complaint I have with the Bolt is the DCQC speed. How fast is the eTron? 150kW or so? Have you hit up an EA station with it yet? How does the experience compare with the Bolt? Is it noticeably better, or just not as big of a deal as I might hope? Again, congrats ...
