Re: 2017 Aftermarket DCFC

Maybe OP doesn't get satisfaction but... Just for giggles, does the 22 Niro EV offer the DCFC as an "option" or do all of them include it as a necessary feature to a modern day EV? It is standard on all US-market '22 Niro EV. I can't speak to past history. I don't even remember this threa...

Re: Aftermarket DC fast charge options

I was just burned in this same fashion. I did a ton of looking before buying and I never saw anything about his being just an option, so I'm not surprised to see others have this same experience. I was in the unfortunate circumstance to be sitting at a DCFC station trying to get enough juice to com...

Re: 2017 Aftermarket DCFC

I'll bet dollars to donuts that the OP gets no satisfaction from your insistence on posting: 1) claims that "plenty of folks between chevybolt.org and Bolt FB groups who knew they were getting Bolts w/o DC FC inlet, that it couldn't be added and were fine with it"; and 2) discussions of h...

Re: 2017 Aftermarket DCFC

All of that history is a mere footnote to the complaint registered by the OP. When the Bolt EV was released in December 2016, it became the only mass marketed long range EV (other than a Tesla), and hence the history of charging 80 mile range EVs is irrelevant. ... This injustice continues into the...

Re: 2017 Aftermarket DCFC

Prior to and during the time Bolt was sold, there have been plenty of BEVs sold in the US where the DC FC inlet was optional. Heck, there are some (that came after gen1 Leaf in Dec 2010) that couldn't be DC FCed at all (not even as an option) like the Fiat 500e, gen 2 Rav4 EV (others later developed...

Re: 2017 Aftermarket DCFC

Never hear of anything that was financially viable. https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/addin ... ost-558305 is a place in Canada that could do it. The parts and labor would make it very expensive.

Re: free charging at Electrify America

Seems like the free EA juice we've been seeing at some locations is more official now: https://twitter.com/ElectrifyAm/status/ ... 59200?s=20.
