Re: Hello from ChargePoint!

Having a way to terminate charge (with Home Charger) via a SOC % setting would be an awesome enhancement, mainly to prolong battery life. While the Bolt has Hilltop mode, which stops charge at 92% or so; I would rather stop ~50%-75% for most days (particularly when it's over 100F) since I don't nee...

Re: The Q4 Numbers are in for GM.

Well all know that the majority of GM's marketing spend goes towards their bread & butter: Trucks & SUV's. In 1-2 years, lease returns are going to start piling up on dealer lots. That's when the bottom falls out of the resale market, and when I start shopping around. 2021 is going to be th...

Re: The Q4 Numbers are in for GM.

I think part of the problem is the lack of marketing and lack of awareness of the heavy Bolt discounting in the US. I only suddenly became interested and started digging around after someone on an EV (possibly Leaf) Facebook made me aware of the heavy discounting. Until about 2 weeks ago, a Leaf had...

Re: Calif: Purple HOV decals

Yep. The first I saw was on a Prius Prime in the past week or so. I just bought a new '19 Bolt Premier. I plan to hold out until I actually need them for later expiration, which means likely waiting for whatever comes after purple or after that. Currently, I don't travel during rush hour much so th...

Re: Calif: Purple HOV decals

I think that purple is it - the current program ends in 2023, doesn't it? No. Purple stickers expire 1/1/2023: https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/?1dmy&urile=wcm:path:/dmv_content_en/dmv/vr/decal Per https://ww2.arb.ca.gov/resources/fact-sheets/clean-air-vehicle-decals Program expiration dates A...

Re: Anyone with experience using the TeslaTap?

A JDapter may not work with a destination charging station is if it is wired alongside a Supercharger. Those units are wired for 277V, and the Bolt won't accept a voltage that high. But I've heard Tesla has discontinued use of the 277V setups, so likely only a handful of them are out there. FWIW, i...

Re: BoBattery failure - How good is the warranty going to be?

The other is that there has to be a "relearning" process. According to the technician at the dealer I spoke to, I would have to go through 10 drive cycles for the battery to complete its relearning process. Although I am a technologically oriented person, the concept that the car has to &...
