  1. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    This is coming from an old 2017 French article but I did not find it on the Forum and I think it provides an interesting data point that nobody would have enough patience to reproduce. Journalists from Caradisiac drove an 2017 Ampera-e (Bolt EU equivalent) from 100% to 0% SOC on the Parisian...
  2. Charging and Batteries
    I felt like seeing how many kWh I could use before absolutely needing to charge. here are the results: I ended up traveling 256.2 miles and used 61.8 kWh. Using an EngineLink I could see I had (rounding) 2 percent battery life left. Assuming I started with 66 kWh, useable. ( I bought the car...

    Hi All, Has any 2017 LT owner observed this -- loss of range as weather warms up? Our 2017 LT has the recall update. It has a mileage of around 39,000. Through out winter, rain, and cold in California, GOM consistently shows 230's miles in range with an efficiency of 4.5 mi/kWh at "full...
  4. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Hi all - My husband bought a used 2017 Chevy Bolt the other day and when we picked it up today, we asked them to have it fully charged. I got in and the GOM (Guess-o-meter) said 78 miles. We kinda freaked out. When he bought it, they told him that it wasn’t fully charged and that number would go...

    Hi everyone, I just purchased a used 2017 Bolt Premier with 50k kms (31k miles) on it, and am struggling a bit with the winter range. I have a long, fast highway commute in the frozen arctic tundra that is Canada, and I know these factors aren't ideal. My trip is 95km each way (59 miles), with...
  6. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Hi All, we were excited to get our first EV but unfortunately in our first day discovered that a full charge displayed a range of 139mi. This seems well below expected even with the battery recall applied with 10% reduced charge. Is this expected? Considering returning car to investigate as...
  7. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I'm new to the forum & really appreciate all the well-informed posts, especially about calculating range and battery issues. I'm off-grid with a new solar system, so it's (finally!) time for an EV! I'm comparing the 2020 LTD with a $19k one-owner 2017 premier with 31,000 miles (pics of range...
  8. Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    As the title says, has anyone had the Continental PureContact LS on their Bolt for over a year, and how would they rate the tire now? From what I understand reading other reviews, the tire has a greater impact on range when new (under 1000 mi), but this impact goes down as the tire is broken...
  9. Charging and Batteries
    I’m curious, for those driving a 2020 Bolt with the advertised range of 259 miles. What does your average range say when fully charged? I guess that’s three related questions, What is your average listed range when fully charged? How many miles are on your 2020 bolt? What is your lifetime...
  10. 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...

    Hey everyone I’m new to the forum and I just got my first car/EV car and I gotta say the car is great got it used with 23k miles on it and it’s been a blast. I’ve been getting used to driving it the best I Can and I didn’t know you could get 4kw + per miles and with my current route structure...

    We drove from Colorado Springs to Glenwood Springs. The Bolt far exceeded my expectation. See photos for trip details. The only odd thing that occurred was the Lan Keeping Assistant stopped working about 170 miles into our journey. (System unavailable)
  13. 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...

    I’ve purchased a 2018 Chevy bolt couple months. Ago and it didn’t click to me, but I live in apartment and I have no output to plug in my car. Winter is coming and I’m now aware that it’ll reduce up to 40 percent of the range during the winter Season. It gets from 25 to 40 where I live during...

    After months of dilly-dallying I had my Chevy Bolt 2018 (1.5 year old) sent to the dealer to fix a recall issue. It's been 2 weeks since the fix. The car doesn't show more than 185-190 miles of average range on a full charge. It used to hover between 210 (winter) and 230 (summer) miles. There's...
