Right. And I was speaking from experience. Last weekend, that's exactly what happened. My son and I arrived home, very chilly, with 4% battery charge left. I stopped to check out an EA station about 65 miles from home, which is not yet open. If it was, I suspect that $10 would give me the boost I needed. If you look at price per kWh, sure it's paying "through the nose". But that's a small percentage of my total electric consumption, and I'm paying for convenience / availability.
It seems that EA is priced for the max rates, which makes sense. They charge per minute, regardless of whether you are pulling 55kW or 350kW. Naturally the Bolt will cost more per kWh.
And yes, I could possibly save money by driving a gas car. But there are reasons I drive electric that go beyond money. In fact, if money was the only driving motivation, I'd still be driving a 10-year-old Honda Insight instead of having sold it years back for an EV.
