Don't know if this is a typo or not, but article says : " $37,495 with DFC ", which is a change from 2017. Of course, it later says "An available DC Fast Charging system".

I really wish companies would get people who know what they are talking about to write (or at least review) press releases and web sites (ElectraMeccanica is god-awful in that respect: spewing out nonsense {or just wrong info} and then getting mad when they get called on it).

It wouldn't surprise me if that were done to make some people think that DCFC was included.

How is bullet number one different from the 2017 model?

I have an LT trim with comfort and convenience package and that comes with a heated steering wheel, that can be set up as automatic in the Central display so that it turns on on preheat mode.

You should download the PDF version of the Bolt manual - it makes it real easy to search.

"heated steering wheel" only reveals how to turn it on (on the steering wheel).

Page 105 (how to toggle it on)

HOWEVER, there is a description of how to have heated seats auto-enable when using Remote Start :

I have the manual but saw no reference to making the heated steering wheel come on automatically. And I have looked again and it is not there.

I believe this is a feature that's been added to the 2018 model year.
