Default Chevy 2017 Bolt owner's manual

Just saw this on the web and it has a lot of interesting information.

Like an 80 kW charger.

My Volt's 240 volt only has 3.3Kw charging 16 amps. If there was one thing I would change that would be top on my list.

6.6KW charging 32 amps I could charge in 2 hours and many EV’s have this rate of charging Bolt included.

We would have more EV miles with faster charging. I know most people only charge once a day and they charge over night. have it an option if everybody does not want it.

I agree - 6.6KW charging option would be huge.

The cost to implement it couldn't be too high; possibly just a re-programming, as we know the car can regenerate at 60KW going downhill. Thus, it is already capable of higher speed charging.
