Right, I've seen that too. I just think it would be helpful to see map as described in thread title.Plugshare shows several dealers with them in my greater geographical area. The ones I know of are only just the 25kw chargers. Not any 50kw or more. Some other dealers have the standard charger. Most have nothing.
Is that for the sake of a line up behind you or...???Would be nice if the DCFC stations stop charging once your battery hits 80%. Then have several L2 chargers nearby.
True points,A dealership is a crappy place to charge. If there's going to be a requirement for dealers to offer charging, then GM should go ahead and make it worthwhile:
1. DCFC preferably at 75 kW or higher. 24 kW at the absolute minimum. May as well have the ability to charge a Bolt and Spark EV at full speed.
The only reason GM has a requirement for the dealer to have a "fast" charger is because it is needed for pre-delivery prep and for service.A dealership is a crappy place to charge. If there's going to be a requirement for dealers to offer charging, then GM should go ahead and make it worthwhile:
I'm aware. The OP is looking for some charging utility from dealerships. I was just suggesting if GM dealerships are going to offer charging, then they should just go ahead and do it better so that it can be more useful for especially Bolt owners, but also to the EV community in general. All it would take is two or three covered parking spots at the edge of the dealership property near the fence to give 24/7 access. Essentially it's extending the same type of model that Harley Davidson is doing for their LiveWire Bike customers by offering dealership charging at 24 kW.The only reason GM has a requirement for the dealer to have a "fast" charger is because it is needed for pre-delivery prep and for service.
That's not true. My local Chevy dealer does not carry Bolts, in fact they refuse to sell any kind of plug in vehicle (including the Volts when they were available) When I asked they told me that they don't have any level-2 chargers either.It would be nice if GM made ALL Chevrolet dealers make their level 2 chargers available to their Bolt buyers--if even for a price. They all have such chargers since they have Bolts in stock to sell. My dealer fast charged my Bolt while I waited when I bought it. They don't make their charger available to Bolt owners. The nearest level 2 charger to me is a Nissan dealer, who charges $5.
My impression is the sales people in some of these dealerships don't know a lot about these cars. My salesman didn't tell me anything about battery conditioning--had to learn it here and the manual. In addition, they messed up the paperwork going to the state auto registry, and the title came back marked "gasoline." The dealer took care of this, but I'm still waiting for the proper title.
