that's listed at 150,000 miles, so we won't calculate it into the eqaution here. If you have recently purchased a Bolt or are considering the Bolt, you will want to start thinking about a charging plan, including a Level 2 charger for your home.
It’s affectionately referred to as the “Guess-o-Meter” (GoM) because it’s really just a guess about how much range you have left. Next, make an honest assessment of your daily driving routine.
It’s a known problem. Is there anything less exciting than reading a warranty?
No, you do not have to pay for remote keyfob, despite what they will insistently tell you.
For example, you may be stuck in medium flow traffic (30-40mph) for an hour on a long trip, and it’ll say that you have 200 miles of range at 75%. No, contrary to what you have heard or might think.
You can get. My personal experience with the 2019 Bolt EV is limited; however, based on ride-alongs and feedback from owners, the 2019 Bolt EV allows for significantly more regenerative braking even when the battery is full. It will take about 12 hours to recharge your Chevy Volt this way. Note that you can expect a 5-10% hit on range with winter tires. I’m not sure whether this only happens when the battery is at or near 100% or whether it can occur at other battery charge levels. However. A question I get asked often is when and how to use these target charge level features. Changing the cabin air filter should be done annually. It is possible to properly plug and repair a puncture! Generally speaking, there’s not much to worry about. The 2019 MY made the Driver Confidence II Package available on the LT model.
The 2018 MY added a telescoping sun visor (which can be put into 2017MY), and the heated steering wheel can come on automatically.
Let's look at how these systems work and how they should be used. Also, if an EV owner does need to charge to 100%, it’s best to not let the car sit at 100% battery for long periods of time because that increases the stress on the battery even further. Good idea to have links to download the manuals for those who bought a used bolt where the manual was missing. Thanks Sean, I hope this will eliminate repeat questions from those who refuse to read the manual.
Just plug the cord that comes with the car into a regular wall outlet to add about 4 miles of Range Per Hour.
But that’s very rare.
Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. By turning off the Heat/Cool button, you can still have the fan running the vents / defog without losing any range. I’ve been driving electrically since 2014 and recently bought a 2020 Bolt.
The cost to “fill up” a Chevy Bolt battery at home ranges from just over $6.00 (in Washington state) to more than $20.00 (in Hawaii) – a high cost, but significantly lower than the equivalent cost for a tank of gas. Can’t see the charge port at night and don’t want to spend the extra for the official illuminated port? Still, getting a faster Level 2 charger will prepare you get an all-electric vehicle eventually, like I did.
Oh, brake fluid replacement is recommended every 5 years, regardless of mileage. The top/bottom numbers are about 18% above and below the center number, and should not be interpreted as actual min and max numbers. The range indicator is just an estimate. Don’t worry about charging as you need for comfort and convenience. If you’re considering the Bolt EV, you might be wondering how to charge it. They're incredibly quiet, have a lot of torque and run on electricity that's so cheap compared to gasoline that it might as well be free. It is expected that the 2021 MY will have a mid-cycle refresh with a slightly redesigned interior and possibly many more optional features added.
Similarly in really hot weather it will throttle the charge rate if it gets too hot (around 100F). The Target Charge Level is now located in a different section than Hill Top Reserve, but it is still accessed through the Infotainment Screen: Energy > Charging > Target Charge Level. When charging at home, the cost of charging will vary depending on how much you drive and how much electricity costs in your area (and if you can get a special EV charging rate plan, like me). Fast charging is generally for long trips and PHEVs have a gas engine available for those.
GM has made a number of improvements to the Chevy Bolt EV's software, including features that control the battery charge level.
If not, you might want to adjust the amount of battery to limit inconvenient charging sessions. Chevy warns the Bolt EV's battery might lose some charge capacity, but that's unlikely. Plug-in hybrids have a gas engine and an electric motor, so they can plug in to charge the battery, but can also run on gas only when needed.
If your tire pressure indicators are off, the place that did it likely rotated the tires and didn’t relearn the locations.
Driving at 75mph requires about 40% more energy per mile than driving at 60mph, so will result in about 30% less range.
If you need the extra range, charge to full. 1 hour at 30 amp = 20 miles. That’s it for now! One difference to note is that many plug-in hybrids like the Volt have a slower onboard charger (what converts AC power from an outlet to DC power for the battery) than battery electric vehicles, meaning these hybrids can add only about 12 miles of Range Per Hour with even a 32-amp Level 2 charger (that’s compared with the 25 miles of Range Per Hour most battery electric vehicles can add). Expect a big range hit – somewhere from 25-50%. Electrek notes that Tesla has similar language in its battery warranty, but it makes no mention of expected degradation. While GM has been making regular, incremental improvements to the Bolt EV’s battery and charge management systems, I still think they can make a number of improvements.
regen will be reduced as it can’t charge the battery fast enough, the brake light will not be illuminated at a stop, The EPA-rated 238 miles (or 259 for the 2020) of range is. The battery maker simply charges and discharges a battery cell from empty to full for a number of cycles, and at the end of the test, they measure the energy capacity, which is typically much less than the starting capacity.
Tesla's warranty does say that any amount of capacity loss is not covered by the warranty. Any electric vehicle will do much better at slower speeds. For the 2,300,000 Chevy Volt charging sessions on ChargePoint so far, the average fee has been just $0.70 per session, and over 70% of sessions were free.

The battery is solid and will likely outlast the body of your car.
If you absolutely need or want the range, set it to 100% battery, but try to limit the amount of time the car sits at 100%. Activating and deactivating Hill Top Reserve is a simple process using an on/off radio button accessed through the Infotainment screen: Energy > Settings > Hill Top Reserve.
That's immediately apparent when you take a look at the maintenance schedule for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt. Check the ChargePoint app to find places to charge near you.
GM should add a current selector to the charge menu. Yes, KeyPass is pretty flaky and hard to get setup. Essentially, 2019 Bolt EV owners can charge the battery to 100% and still have access to one pedal driving. Like Most Pure Electric Cars, The Chevrolet Bolt Requires Very Little Routine Maintenance. As InsideEVs pointed out earlier this year, GM claimed that it has replaced zero first-generation Volt battery packs because of "general capacity degradation."
See you next time as I describe the top software features that GM must add to all of its electric vehicles. This is the car applying the hydraulic brakes to ensure that the car is entirely stopped, there is no damage by doing this. There is a liquid cooling system that does a decent job at keeping the battery in a happy temperature range for maximum longevity.
I have been toying between making this an actual FAQ, but there’s just so much information that I think point form notes under headings is better. Based on GM’s marketing and owner support materials, Hill Top Reserve was designed for Bolt EV owners who live at the top of mountains or start their drives with significant descents or elevation decreases.
Infotainment system not working? Humidity actually lowers air density slightly (H20 weighs less than O2 and N2), so efficiency will be slightly better in that regard, but active cooling will eat that up and more.
