It will take me awhile to arrange for a 40 amp 220 V plug. Thanks
Caveat : I do NOT have an "EUV".
All I have rad about the dual charge cord is that the plug is a 14-50 for 240V, and that it pulls 32A. If that is true, then it is not safe to use on a 30A circuit. The max "continuous" draw (for over 30 mins) on any electrical circuit is 80% of the max rate, so a max of 24A should be pulled from a 30A circuit.
HOWEVER, in this article :

Chevrolet will cover standard installation of a Level 2 charger with the purchase or lease of a Bolt. For those who, like me, don’t have access to home charging in an apartment, Chevrolet will provide charging-station credit in some form—though how much you would get has not yet been finalized. Details for these programs will be released closer to the on-sale date for the Bolt EUV in early summer.
If that is true, ask at the dealer. Have them install a 50A circuit (for free) in your garage. If not, buy an inexpensive 240V/16A EVSE for home use (3.8 kW, so about 15 miles an hour ; 12 hours overnight = 180 miles).
