More range with Bolt Software fix?

9947 Views 46 Replies 23 Participants Last post by  csandoval012
I have a 2019 Bolt that was part of the battery recall. Prior to having the update done, I was showing about 238 mile range after a full charge (prior to limiting the charge to 90%).
After the update, I am seeing a 254 mile range after a full charge. Has anyone else noticed a change in full charge range after the update?

Since the new readout of watts per mile is roughly half of the most efficient electric production car, it is clearly not correct.
Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing. I've hesitated getting the recall done. Now I'm convinced to put it off even longer as clearly something isn't right. Either the software or the process of updating the car is at fault. And then the car might suddenly get bricked because of a potential for a false positive. I'm not going to participate in field testing immature software.
