What can I do?

I have a Bolt on order, it has been produced and just waiting on delivery. Sales sent me the vin, is there anything I can/should do with the vin ahead of time? I used it to get an insurance quote anything else??
Currently in a 2015 Spark EV and have a 2023 Sky Blue 1LT on order. Placed on 10/7, accepted on 10/31, produced on 11/1! Now the longest part of the process begins from what I'm told.

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 if this perk is still available from Chevrolet but it explains what you'll need:

(I had my home charger installed before my first pre-ordered EV arrived)

Re: What can I do?

I actually already have this as I am driving a Spark EV now. Also i bought a EVSE that is adjustable so it can supply the max amps to my Spark EV then to the Bolt later. This was my master plan.
