>>25606714>times I would need to use a DC fast charging station are few and far between, maybe six for the whole year.
This is pretty accurate, very similar to my own experience in most of the years that I've owned a BEV which coincidentally has about the same battery capacity and range as a Bolt EUV.
The main difference is the amount of time you'd need to spend at a fast charger. My car isn't the fastest charging EV around, but it can sustain charging rates above 150kW for about 10 minutes which means it can add about another 2 hours of range in that time. Or about 10 minutes in 5 hours of driving before needing a longer stop, right inline with what I'm capable of in my old age. Which means its getting into the range where its not really any worse than a gas station stop on a trip.
Now while I've found that I actually often prefer to use slower chargers where they're available at destinations, to eliminate the gas station style stops entirely, with a Bolt there's no option to use faster chargers and that does consign it to 'secondary car' territory.
If the Bolt EUV could support 150kW fast charging like the Mustang Mach E, or 350kW fast charging like the Ioniq 5 then it would be a lot more credible as something other than a better cheap short range commuter car than a Leaf.
That's really the reason why I bring up the Volt. For all its flaws, the range extender did enable it to act as a primary vehicle able to do 100% of driving, something that the CCS cars still can't quite manage due to their reliance on fairly immature fast charging infrastructure. There's still too many areas where Tesla Superchargers are the only option for fast charging.
