Flag down a pickup truck. Have him tow you while your Bolt is on and in L to get max regen. It will be just as if you were going down a long hill. After a few miles or 10, you might get enough charge to drive to the nearest charger.
In most states it's very illegal to travel at the end of a tow strap. There are signs which order stranded drivers or fender-bender accidents to move to the shoulder, but don't say how this is to be accomplished.
It's really no different as if someone ran out of gas (the car won't suddenly die and stop in the middle of the road if that's what your friend was thinking)...
Actually, yes they can and will. Both BEVs and ICEs can have system failures which will cause them to without warning stop in the center of a six-lane freeway with traffic streaming by at 70 MPH. A friend's new $100,000 M-B did this to him twice. Thanks for his cell phone, he was able to sit there buckled in with warning flashers on until several intrepid CHPmen stopped traffic and pushed him to the shoulder and a tow truck came. He calculated each incident was more than $100,000 in indirect costs to us as taxpayers and insurance payers. His M-B dealership quietly bought it back without being sued under the lemon law. He now drives a Lincoln.
In probably a half million miles in my lifetime, I've never run out of gas. Even IF you don't take it seriously and you do that once or twice, you kinda learn not to do that.
There are enough numbnuts drivers that uncountable thousands will run out of gas every day. Because this happens so regularly, we as taxpayers subsidize the numbnuts by paying the costs for a standby service truck and crew to bring gas to them when they're stranded at major traffic choke points, such as bridges, tunnels and city cloverleafs.
you suffer a panic attack
For true, the same standby service truck crew is called when drivers have a panic attack and freeze up at the wheel on a major bridge or tunnel. These drivers know they're agoraphobic/claustrophobic/diabetic/narcoleptic/whatever, but put us all in harm's way every time they drive.
Being a State Trooper or service truck crew on urban freeways is one of the most hazardous occupations. Even when they can get out of traffic lanes, even with the eyeball searing flashers visible for a half-mile, they are still rear-ended and injured or killed.
Washington just passed a state law making it a citable offense to not yield the right-of-way by making a lane change or moving away from the lane or shoulder occupied by the stationary authorized emergency vehicle or police vehicle. The Emergency Zone Law was passed in the aftermath of growing numbers of police, emergency technicians, tow operators, and Department of Transportation workers being killed or struck during routine traffic stops, collision/accident response, impounding/ towing vehicles, and highway construction projects.
