Hi

On the 18th of March, 2021, I purchased a used 2019 Bolt from a dealer in Golden CO.

My mechanically inclined sons had been suggesting that I get rid of my 2001 VW Jetta TDI and get an EV. At first, I told them I didn't need it as I was working from home 100% for the last year and I only fill up the car once every 2-3 months. However, I wanted to get a vehicle for my husband for his 25 mile round-trip commutes to work to cut out the $240 monthly gasoline bill and I wanted something that would have a range over 200 miles for potential short road trips.

Lo and behold, shortly after purchasing it, I decided to travel to Alberta so I could be with my mom as she was experiencing some health issues. So I drove 1500 miles/2500 km to Red Deer, Alberta where I could quarantine 14 days. Check out my trip report.

I'm excited to hear from other EV and Bolt EV owners about their experiences.

I waited three years before I took a long trip in my Bolt. Mainly because the infrastructure wasn't even there to do it. Great to hear someone can buy one and immediately use it for a trip like this. Too bad you had to take a 300 mile detour though to do it. Hope you have a productive stay with your Mom. These are interesting times right now. Be safe.
