This is the first of the new affordable generation of fully electric vehicles on the market. With (200 to 300) miles of range, it has 2-3x the range of any other electric car on the market in its price range, rivaled only by the much more expensive Tesla model 3. Say goodbye to range anxiety! The range will vary with temperature and your driving style. And it is much much cheaper to rent than any Tesla. And many other cars as well.
While it may not have the futuristic styling of the model 3, it’s got a unique and pleasant interior in its own right. As a 5-door hatchback, it is convenient to get around town with plenty of seating and cargo space.
It charges from empty in about 9 hours on a level 2 charger, but with regular use and charging it doesn't need more than a few hours at a time every few days. And about 45 to 90 minutes on a high voltage charger.
I have a level 2 charger you can use at my house, and there are plenty of other free and cheap level 2 and level 3 charging stations all around the Maryland DC Virginia area. Use an app like 'PlugShare' to find them. It also comes with a regular outlet charger but it takes a few times as long to charge. If you have somewhere to plug it in overnight that's usually enough. I will also provide membership cards for EVGO ChargePoint SemaConnect. You can use PlugShare to plan your stops and travel. I have driven this car on trips of 400 miles in a single day but that does require a small amount of planning.
It also uses your phone as the Satellite Navigation so you all need is an Apple(Car play) or Android(Android Auto) phone. This will give a choice of Waze Google or Apple Navigation.

Please park in the driveway
Please, no smoking of anything in the car. You are free to return the car at any charge level. Also, the charging cable will be given to you as well so that it can be charged at any standard 120 outlets.
How do I do charging at home
It uses a standard outlet. Some homes can only handle 8 amps of charging but most can do 12 amps slightly faster charging.
How do I use EVGO fast chargers
Just use the cards that I will be providing
The Bolt EV is a great car. You do have to plan ahead more than a gas car, but I thought that was an enjoyable part of my road trip. Happy to say I did a multi-state trip using no gas!!
Robert was really easy to communicate with and very helpful.
