2020 Bolt EV Goes West #3: Interstate EV Charging in Ohio and Indiana

From Plug and Play EV.

After a day 3 break for family events, day 4 of our #EVroadtrip in the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV takes us 300 miles down the Ohio Turnpike and Indiana Toll Road, on the way to Chicago.

Better yet for this small evening stint, with Electrify America (EA) options at western Ohio service plazas and DCFC on the Indiana Toll Road, we don’t have to leave the Interstate.

For anyone participating in the poll on DCFC reliability over the whole trip, by the end of this video (almost 1,000 miles in) we’re at 87% success, with only the first short charge at an EVgo in Massachusetts providing true problems so far. All the EA (four) and EV Connect (three) stops currently rate 100%. Check out that poll here if you want to guess the % over 2,000+ miles: https://www.youtube.com/c/PlugandPlayEV/community

The next video keeps us in one place but covers a wealth of electric cars, as we visit the Chicago Auto Show and check out new models like the Kia EV 6, Chevy Bolt EUV, and the latest big Ford marque to go all-electric, the F150 Lightning. Make sure you’re subscribed and notified up for that one and check below for any stops/products mentioned in this video. Thanks for watching!
