Re: Pigtail for Bolt

Yup, as long as it's the regular clipper creek inside charger that's been coming stock. https://www.chevrolet.com/content/dam/chevrolet/na/us/english/index/vehicle-groups/charging/01-images/2019-ev-charging-intro-05.jpg?imwidth=1200 https://www.chevrolet.com/content/dam/chevrolet/na/us/english/index...

Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

I WENT TO THE DEALERSHIP TODAY!! I skipped over the salesman and went straight to F & I and talked to the dude. I'll have ended up paying $17,000 in "rent" , oh plus the $2500 I put down, and my residual is $25K, which adds up to MSRP, like magic! So where the fuck did my $7500 federal...

Re: Any Boyle Heights / East Los Angeles EV drivers out there?

Wait, you ARE a liberal elite NPR listening pussy hat wearing militant vegan or you're NOT? I am the worst kind of hipster yuppy gentrifier there ever was. But the road to my entitled state was long and I started at the very bottom. And yes, I realize that I'm making generalizations and that I'm be...

Smog ready, $1200, clean title, SEVEN PASSENGER. All's I'm saying is look at it from the perspective of somebody who's not the liberal eli...

Re: Any Boyle Heights / East Los Angeles EV drivers out there?

I actually heard that some of the pushback against EVs there is because there's a huge pushback against hipsters and their art galleries and coffee shops taking over the neighborhood... and residents associate EVs with hipsters, especially rich white ones. I'm hoping that hearing from people like t...

Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

So in regards to "dickering" with the finance company, I'd like to know if anybody has historically had any success on this front. I asked when my Spark EV lease was up and they told me immediately that there was absolutely no negotiating whatsoever and that I could either turn it in or pa...

Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

From these forums we learned that the technology is changing so fast that it made sense to lease. Also, as a US resident with a low income, the federal subsidies were useless to us, so leasing became the best strategy. . . . We got a hell of a deal on our lease ($250 USD/mo total) so it's unlikely ...

The bus bars in the Bolt battery already handle 400A at least for awhile since the pack output is rated for a peak of 160 kW (400A @ 400V or something like that). Yeah.... true, I would wager that that isn't a "continuous" power rating but probably something a lot closer to a 1 minute rat...

This covers everything. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combined_Charging_System CCS1 does 200 amps, CCS2 does 500 amps, how they balance the voltage out in that equation will be entirely up to the power supply designer, they'll either max out at a number of amps, or a max grand total power. Also, doe...
