OK, not long by others standards. But my first "outing" with the Bolt of any distance (I have 1500 miles on the odometer). Outer Cape Cod to Boston and return. 204 mile round trip. Began with 292 miles on the GOM (yes, I know, the GOM is basically anecdotal info!), ended with 84.
I realize that range is a function of many things. And today was a perfect day for a Bolt ride; great mild weather (mid 60s to low 80s), no rain, no wind. The roads I used were not ones where speed was either lawful or even possible (Route 6, Route 3, 93) --most of the time. Mid 50 mph to an occasional run up to around 68 or so.
On the way home I did crank up the AC. Still had plenty of reserve miles left.
None the less, the fact that nearly 300 miles is doable in the Bolt is not to be sneezed at!
Just this week I've finally started seeing range over 200 miles on the GOM. This happened only after swapping back to the stock LRR (Low Rolling Resistance) tires which I had swapped over to the lightweight Cruze wheels. I saw a 10% increase in range after 2 days of driving my normal highway commute. Weather here (Michigan) has been windy and high 60s to mid 70s (cool for us, should be 80s now).
My guess is with my highway commute I'm not going to see over 3.0 mi/kW. I can see 6+ mi/kW every now and then if I'm just driving around town (45 mph max), but hitting the highway at 70/75 MPH speed limits doesn't do me any favors is getting to 250 miles of range.
My "long" trips will start this fall for football... with a required round trip of 212 miles of 95% highway driving. There's a single DCFC on my route that I could hit on the way home when the range will be low enough to use it. It's at a dealership... which indicates 24/7 access, but it's not a high power DCFC, instead the typical 25 kW charger. I'm hoping a 30-45 min. stop there gets my home, and that the charger is up and running, and wasn't blocked since it would be after hours on a Saturday when I go to use it.
