Understanding the Bolt EV

From WeberAuto.

We are finally moved into our new building after a very long summer/fall without access to my cars, parts, cameras, etc. This is a custom video I made for the Doutor-IE event in Brazil on December 4, 5, and 6 2020. The Doutor-IE Circuit is the largest event of technical content for professional automotive repairers in Brazil. Yes, I know my glasses are crooked in the introduction 😉

CORRECTION: The Bolt EV does use a radiator in the Power Electronics cooling loop, but not in the High Voltage battery cooling loop. See my Bolt EV cooling system video at https://youtu.be/_ILkLUE3Zxc
