Frequently asked questions

Does Bolt EV or Volt require any special equipment at home?

A 120-volt charge cord comes standard with the Bolt EV and Volt. The available 240-volt (32-amp) charging unit is the fastest and most convenient way to charge at home – however, it does require professional installation. For Bolt EV, the 240-volt charging unit, offers the benefit of up to 25 miles of range per hour of charge. So, if you drive an average of 40–50 miles a day, like most U.S. commuters, you could replenish your battery in about two hours.

 

You can find the available 240-volt charging unit at Bolt EV or Volt-certified dealers and online at GM Accessories. Our partner, Aerovironment™, provides a convenient, easy-to-use solution for home installation. Otherwise, be sure to talk to a certified electrician about installation costs and incentives in your area.

 

Plus, with Programmable and Location-Based Charging options, you can easily set your Bolt EV to take advantage of off-peak utility rates to help save money. So don’t forget to check with your utility provider about off-peak utility rates, as well as available incentives and rebates for installation of a home charging unit.

How do I know how much energy my Bolt EV is using?

The standard 8-inch diagonal Driver Information Center and 10.2-inch diagonal color touch-screen displays in the Bolt EV as well as the available myChevrolet Mobile App make it easy to track your energy efficiency and charge status.

 

On the 8-inch diagonal Driver Information Center, you can select from three different displays with varying levels of information:

 

• Classic: Battery charge level and range estimate, plus efficiency indicator with solid green or yellow bar.

 

• Modern: Battery charge level and range estimate, plus efficiency ball to track performance.

 

• Enhanced: Battery charge level with confidence gauge (estimated high and low range based on recent driving), power gauge, and efficiency ring.

 

On the 10.2-inch diagonal color touch-screen, simply select the “Energy” button to access the Energy Screens, which feature:

 

• Power Flow: Presents a diagram of the car to show its current operating condition and highlights active components. This means you can see how features such as regenerative braking actually work during your commute.

 

• Charging Information: Displays your charge status, charge time settings and charge level settings based on the type of charging equipment you use.

 

• Efficiency History: Stores information on how you drive for up to 50 miles and utilizes a bar graph to represent the energy used as you drive.

 

• Energy Details: Breaks down the percentages of energy used for Driving and Accessories, Climate Settings and Battery Conditioning. At a glance, you can see how much power is going toward your heating and cooling levels.

 

• Energy Usage Score: Calculates an index score based on driving technique, terrain, climate settings and outside temperature. This allows you to make adjustments to optimize energy consumption and maximize your score and range, if you'd like.

 

With the available myChevrolet Mobile App, you can remotely start and precondition your vehicle while it’s charging, monitor your charge status, view diagnostic information and more – all with the tap of a finger.

Will I get a tax credit for my Bolt EV or Volt?

You could receive a tax credit through federal, state and utility/local incentives.

 

Keep in mind, not all electric vehicle (EV) incentives are tax credits – some are rebates and some are sales tax exemptions. Also, whether they are available to you will depend on your tax situation and in which state you live.

 

Federal incentives

 

If you have any federal income tax liability (i.e., you pay or owe federal income taxes in the year you purchase an electric vehicle), you may qualify for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for the purchase of an EV. Check with your tax professional to confirm your tax status. Here’s additional information from the U.S. Department of Energy and the IRS.

 

 

State incentives

 

A number of states also currently offer EV incentives in the form of rebates, state tax credits or sales tax exemptions. Check out the U.S. Department of Energy website for information about available incentives in your state.

 

 

Utility/Local incentives

 

A handful of electric utility companies and a few cities around the country offer incentives for the purchase or lease of an electric vehicle, so it may be worth looking into these options as well. And to top it off, some states, cities and electric utilities may also offer incentives for home EV charging units.

 

Check out more information on available EV incentives and home EV charging unit incentives.

How much will it cost me to charge my Bolt EV?

According to the EPA label, the estimated fuel cost for the Bolt EV is $550 per year, or about $46 per month. Compared with an average new vehicle of the same size, the EPA estimates that the Bolt EV could save you $5,000 in fuel costs over 5 years, or roughly $1,000 per year, or about $70 per month. Plus, by charging at night, when utility rates may be at their lowest off-peak price, you could save even more.

Does Bolt EV or Volt come with a warranty?

Bolt EV and Volt offers owners peace of mind with Chevrolet Complete Care, which includes battery and electric component coverage and Courtesy Transportation for 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Rest assured that the Bolt EV is built off the success of the Chevrolet Volt – and there are over 140,000 of those on U.S. roads today.

What scheduled maintenance is needed for Bolt EV, and where can I go for service?

Owning a Bolt EV requires less maintenance than a gas vehicle since there are no oil changes or engine upkeep. Here are a few things you’ll need to keep up on:

 

• Rotate your tires every 7,500 miles.

 

• Replace the cabin air filter every 22,500 miles.

 

• Check your brakes, hoses and fluid levels periodically.

 

These services can all be performed at any Chevrolet Bolt EV-certified dealer.

What factors have an impact on my range?

When operating traditional gas vehicles, certain driving behaviors or weather conditions may impact your fuel efficiency. The same realities apply to electric vehicles. Depending on how you drive or how you adjust the climate settings, you may get more or fewer miles of range. But, with an EPA-estimated 238 miles of pure electric range per full charge, there’s plenty to go around.

 

 

When it comes to weather and range variation, here are a few things to consider:

 

Outside temperature: Unfortunately we can’t control the elements, but it’s important to remember that outside temperature may affect range. Luckily the Bolt EV battery pack has an active thermal management system and liquid-cooling loop to allow the vehicle to operate in extreme hot and cold climates.

 

Your driving technique: Being a little heavy-footed on the accelerator can impact range efficiency, just like with a gas vehicle.

 

The terrain: Living in a hilly or flat area could impact your range. Regenerative braking features such as Regen on Demand™ and One Pedal Driving help restore more energy into the battery. And by enabling Hill Top Reserve – which allows you to stop the charge before the battery is full – you can leave space for “free” regenerative energy when driving downhill from a higher elevation immediately after charging.

 

Climate settings: Some like it warm. Some like it cold. Whatever your preference, when the heat or air conditioning is in use, energy is pulled from the battery. But there are ways you can reduce energy usage and improve range. If equipped, be sure to use the heated seat feature, because heating the seat uses less energy than heating the vehicle interior. And you can precondition your car while it’s still plugged in to reach just the right temperature before you step inside. This way, power is pulled from your electrical source rather than from your battery.

What’s the difference between Bolt EV and Volt?

Bolt EV is an all-electric car with an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a full charge. Go through the entire day – perhaps even three or four days– without needing to plug in. You can even take a road trip.

 

Volt is an electric car, but you can also put gas in it. It runs on an electric charge but when the battery is depleted, it will automatically and seamlessly transition over to the gas-powered generator, giving you the peace of mind to go as far as you want.

 

  • Up to 53 miles of battery range on a full charge
 
  • Up to 420 miles of total range with a full charge and full tank of gas
 
  • The majority of 2018 Volt owners achieve more than 1,100 miles between fill-ups with regular charging

I’m not ready for an electric car. Is there a vehicle you can recommend?

Malibu Hybrid may be the car for you. With a 1.8L hybrid engine offering an EPA-estimated 49 MPG city, it takes gas efficiency to another level.  

Getting the most from your Bolt EV and Volt in cold weather

As temperatures fall, it’s important to know that your vehicle’s electric range can be affected. Most Bolt EV and Volt owners will see variances in their electric range compared to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates published for new models depending on outside temperature, terrain and driving technique.

Here are a few tips that may help maximize electric range as the thermometer dips:

  • Smart Cabin Heating – Precondition While Plugged In: using energy from the grid to warm the cabin allows you to reserve stored battery energy for driving. Using a 240-volt charger provides the maximum benefit.
     
  • Tire Pressure Makes a Difference:  properly inflated tires can help improve electric range and fuel economy.
  • Keeping Warm on the Road: if equipped, use the heated seats and heated steering wheel to keep warm. Engineers say that it takes less energy to heat your body through the seat than heating the entire cabin.

Charging is no big deal

When it comes to learning about plug types, how long it takes to charge your EV or where to find charging stations – we’ve got you covered. You’ll see when it comes to charging, it really is as easy as plugging in your smartphone.
