For most of us the main point of driving an EV is to eliminate that 'carbon debt', ie: reduce our fossil fuel dependence. I don't believe when faced with a longer range trip that matters less .. probably more so. AJ
Defining our terms is all-important in a technical discussion; your longer range trip? Your colder temperatures? Out here in the intermountain west, a longer range trip is 750 miles through mountains in zero degree weather and 75-80 MPH speed limits. The DCFC infrastructure is non-existent. The Bolt is not going to be the weapon of choice in that fight.
