How much do you drive your Bolt?

I like getting the monthly summary from ChargePoint (it's the only stations I use... free at work, and free about town), but it caught my attention that apparently I drive mine WAY more than others here in Michigan.

I'm at 10x the average per month for May. How do you have a car and only drive it ~250 miles in a month?

That's a summary of ChargePoint station users.

I occasionally use ChargePoint, if the opportunity is right, but generally, charge at home. I suspect most people also do that.

I drive roughly the same amount as you, OP, based on my odo.

I've driven about 42k miles in 29 months, or a little over 1,400 miles a month.

I've driven 56,000 miles in 36 months (1,550 miles per month) but in my Mirai, not the Bolt (which I purchased 27th December 2018). With the Bolt I am averaging about 900 miles a month (two vehicles combined ~2,400 miles per month).

I get that... but for me it's accurate as ChargePoint is the only network I've used in the 3 months I've owned my Bolt. I've only charged twice not on a ChargePoint... one was a Tesla destination station just to ensure my TeslaTap worked, and the other was at a friends house to use his 14-30 connection to see if my wired up cord worked with the the Chevy EVSE (it did). I don't charge at home... haven't had a need, even with all of these miles. It just caught my attention and made me curious how people are using their EV.

Here's the full summary from the monthly email. The top section is always $0 for me.

I think the ChargePoint readout for the average EV driver includes plug in hybrids, which will drive less as an EV then a full battery EV. On my May 2019 ChargePoint monthly report the average Connecticut driver does about 313 miles per month, while I do 721 miles. This means that hybrid drivers do quite a lot of driving on gasoline -- that's that smelly wet stuff that you have to buy at a convenience store. I attach my report from ChargePoint. I have solar on my roof that covers more than 60% of my usage, so that $42 is actually $16 for me, which is about 2 cents a mile. I use a ChargePoint charger.

Most people don't use ChargePoint the way you do. Most charge at home and only use ChargePoint or some other service when traveling a long distance. Thus the strange statistic, as home-charged miles are not apparent to ChargePoint.
