  1. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Is there any citizens group in New Mexico advocating for installation of DCFC chargers on the I-25 stretch between Albuquerque and Las Cruces in New Mexico? If so, how might we contact that group? A DCFC charging station at the Fort Craig rest area would make it possible to cover this heavily...
  2. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I have very limited technical knowledge, but from my understanding the reason that DCFC can't be added to non-DCFC Bolts is because of differences in the batteries. Would there be any chance that those of us without DCFC could have our Bolts modified to add DCFC when we get our batteries...
  3. Charging Stations Discussion
    As part of the recently passed Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, two new electric vehicle programs will receive funds. The National Electric Vehicle Program, or EV Charging Program, will provide funding to the States to strategically deploy EV charging infrastructure. DOT’s Federal...
  4. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Hello, I understand that after getting the new battery (after recall repair), an older Bolt would, in theory, be able to charge faster on a L3 charger (lower internal resistance in the newer chemistry battery). But my understanding is also that GM does not intend to change anything as far as the...
  5. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Issues And Problems
    Hi, I own a Bolt 2018 LT and a Spark 2016 2LT. I have a problem with the Spark, I am putting this thread here in the issues and troubleshooting section but please move if needed. It is a Spark EV 2016 with DCFC, car works great, no issues. Before I brought the car to Costa Rica, the car...
  6. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I have quit using the EA app (pick location, pick charger, swipe or double click to activate charger routine), and instead use the EA "card" in my Apple Wallet. Just pull up and plug in, wait for the charger to communicate with the car. When the "charging cost" screen is displayed on the...
  7. Charging and Batteries
    Apologies if this has already been answered somewhere (if so, please share the link). I recently purchased a used 2017 Bolt, which only has the J1772 port (does not have the two additional sockets below, which I believe enable CCS1 DC charging). From the layman’s perspective, it appears that the...
  8. Charging and Batteries
    Looks like my area is going to move to the 2020 NEC and I'm planning a big garage remodel... Anybody got a chance to look at it? Any big changes from 2016?
  9. Road Trip Report And Long Trip Discussions
    Anyone know the best route between Indianapolis and Charlotte North Carolina? The desert of East Tennessee, South Indiana and East Kentucky make me weary of taking the road trip. Ideally I won’t have to stop more than 1 night and more ideally do the whole trip in one day. So DCFC chargers are...
  10. Charging and Batteries
    I’m going to record this next time I charge at an EA charging station, for proof. So, I began the charge with about 68 miles left and ended with 237. The session took just under 50 minutes. I was really impressed. Percentage wise, it went from 19% to 80%. I wanted to post this because I always...
  11. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Do you guys typically keep your Bolt on when plugging it in or do you turn it off, plug in then turn it back on? I usually just get out plug in to The DCFC and get back in, without turning the car off. I’m not sure if I should be doing that or not.
  12. Charging Stations Discussion
    This week a friend on an EV road trip became stranded at the Herkimer NY EA DCFC when all four units failed to work. How can we all help each other to try to prevent this from happening again? What can we do? EA can’t fix what they do not know is broken, unlike a gas station the EA host...
  13. First Chevy Bolt in Nassau, Bahamas!

    Happy Holidays everyone! We're new to the forum and the Bolt is new to us. Only had it a few weeks, but it will soon join our all-electric rental fleet here in sunny Nassau, Bahamas! Two items of note: 1) the 'primer' gray color is slowly growing on me, lol 2) the ONLY option it has is DCFC -...
