Re: Bolts in Arizona heat

Yeah .. taking the car down to ~18 miles range is risky without running AC .. with AC it's not doable. The Plugshare app is showing a single NEMA 14-50 electric outlet in Ajo (see pic). I believe the Bolt EUV level 2, 7.2 kW charger that comes with the car will plug into that. https://i.imgur.com/1L...

Re: What can I do?

Hi kentever1, This isn't related to your VIN but .. You may want to install a NEMA 14-50 outlet at your home .. ie: a 40A, 220V circuit for the 7.2kW EVSE charger that comes with your new Bolt EV .. or a bigger 60A, 220V dedicated circuit and a 11kW wall mounted maxed out home charger. I don't know ...

Re: New Bolt order

Federal & State Rebates, Tax credits usually require a copy of a signed contract to purchase the vehicle which would include the VIN as well as other info uploaded into an application at some sort of government website. In most cases you won't be required/asked to sign a contract until you take ...

Re: New Bolt order

Congrats kentever1 and welcome! .. I've been driving Bolt EV's for 5 years and I love 'em. You're gonna love yours too. I hope you have the terms for your purchase prior to the order you placed in writing. Car dealers sometimes change things when the time comes to sign the contract and pick up the c...

Re: free charging at Electrify America

I can confirm that I charged free at EA in the SF east bay on December 24 .. and A Merry Christmas to ALL!

-- Talking with another EV driver there we decided while VW did some bad things it's effort in making amends Re: 'Dieselgate' has been a good thing for US.

I think my 2020 Bolt EA charged at 60kW once .. Not bad.

With 50-53kW typical.

Thanks, AJ

Re: Chevrolet/GM update on new battery software package

All, -- My question is that when all the software fixes, module replacements are done will our cars charge faster? .. Please! I had a serious case of DCFC envy recently when I was at an Electrify America facility and noticed a VW ID4 charging at 107kW right next to me. Wishful thinking perhaps? .. AJ

Hello odonnes1! .. It looks like you may have to change some settings/do a wifi setup procedure using the emporia app. the following PDF may help you do that: https://uploads-ssl.webflow.com/5fff2b7694451e66ba2f5a3d/617d634a44f772b836030066_EV%20Charger%20Installation%20and%20Usage%20Guide%20V1.14.p...

Re: Trailer hitch operation

Hi tkone,

Unfortunately, it looks like GM in the USA is saying "No Trailers" ..

On page 233 of my 2020 Bolt EV manual the following message is provided:

Perhaps you could invest in a roof rack system to meet your needs?

Re: EA: Give 'em hell (that's what they want)

Pretty disappointing considering their nameplate and all the hype around higher EA charger kW ratings. -- It feels like VW is pushing a proprietary DCFC network out primarily for their own cars .. similar to the way Tesla does. (10/23/2021 update) .. After a recent 2000 mile trip with my 2020 Bolt ...
