      It was interesting to see your trend bar at highway speeds was typically even or high. I assume you do a lot of highway driving. Any time I get up to highway speeds in my 2019 LT my trend bar goes low. Obviously this is because I mostly do in-town driving but it's interesting to see the process in action.

      Curious, after your run you said you would charge it to 100% with the dc fast charger. How long did that take?

      Barry Kreider after 70, it was noticeably slower. From what I recall, 0-70 it was in the upper 40’s kWh. Then slowed gradually till 100%.

      Nice. I wasn't sure how much it slowed down when getting toward 100%.+AvtoWowEV's

      It took about an hour and half. Rate of charge of 40-45kw/h

      Wow if you managed that range at 40 degF , a nice spring day of 65degF won't be a problem at all. Thank you for posting this. I also have a 2017 BOLT EV Premier, with 18,000+ miles. I haven't tried anything over 100 miles as yet, but after this video I am eager to hit the road for some long distance travel.

      Thanks, as long as you can plan out your trips when going for long stretches, the Bolt will prove to have fairly good highway efficiency!

      Close indeed! But a good example to recalculate and adjust speed as necessary to reach the fast charger on longer trips. I'll take anything over 200 miles at highway speeds in the Bolt, so good work!

      Hey thanks! The Bolt surprised me. It is quite efficient! When it gets warmer (65-75 degrees), I'll have to do another test at 70-75mph instead of the 60-70mph in this test.
