I am talking to a dealership in NY. The salesman and I cannot seem to understand each other and not agree on what a DC Fast Charge option is. I want a car with that option. The salesman says "yes, every car comes with that capability." I don't think he is correct. If I'm paying $700 for this option, why is it on every car?!
I do not want to drive 500 miles and put a $2000 non-refundable deposit on this car unless I know for sure that it has what I want!!
I want my car to have the ability to receive a fast charge. The car salesman seems to think the Fast Charge is something I need to install on the wall of my garage. Can you help? Would you be willing to talk to the salesman? I am quite desperate! As I mentioned, I've been trying to buy this car for SEVEN MONTHS!!!!!!
This is what you want to make sure is clearly specified in any contract you plan to sign - info from the Chevy Bolt website. DC Fast Charging should appear on the window sticker as an option.
DC FAST CHARGING
ABOUT 90 MILES IN AROUND 30 MINUTES OF CHARGE TIME
Bolt EV offers DC Fast Charging capability
Provides up to 90 miles of range in about 30 minutes of charge time
DC Fast Charging stations are available for public use
It is not a standard option on every Bolt as some have found out the hard way. I would find a different dealer.
