Range extender

Most of us contemplating buying a Bolt would not often find range to be a problem, but occasionally it would be. Why not make rental range extender trailers available for the occasional long trip?

The range extender trailer could consist of a gasoline generator of perhaps 30 HP which would be sufficient and still be small and light. Before starting on a long trip, one could rent it from a Chevy dealer, attach it to the car, and plug it into the car. It could increase the number of people buying Chevy Bolts.

I don't think it's a good idea. Worse come to worst, although I doubt it will ever happen, you can still have it towed to a nearest charger.
