Yes and no. On a 50kW charger you might get anywhere between 10 and 54 kW rates. My car has never been below 10 and that would be if I am near the full battery charge. Basically for the fastest charge speeds (as measured in kW) on DC fast charger your battery needs to be about 18% up to about 55%. Any temperature extreme or deviation of charge will reduce that speed.

So, you can get it under some conditions. You on a current Bolt won't get it for use of average.

"11kW is the rate at which you can charge at home on 240v power"

Should read as disclaimer. If one has a car with a 11kW charger then they might be able to charge near that rate. There is a number of variables that affect that number.

I prefer Level 3 too. It just upsets some folks to no end. Level 3, level 3, level 3. hahhahaa
