We can officially, officially put to rest the rumor of no DC charging compatibility in the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV. Chevrolet previously stated DC charging would be available, but we now know DC charging will officially be optional equipment for the EV. The brand has released its latest promotion video highlighting the three charging methods that will be available with the EV when it launches later this year.
The 2017 Bolt EV will support available 240-volt charging capability and the 120-volt charging cord that is standard with the vehicle. Thirdly, DC fast charging compatibility is available as optional equipment.
The Bolt EV will arrive with 238 miles of range before having to utilize any of its charging methods.
