Chevrolet Canada will pay for a Level 2 (240-volt) charging home outlet for eligible customers who purchase or lease a new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV or Bolt EV.
And for those buyers who already have Level 2 charging capability, or don’t require it, Chevrolet is offering a $750 FLO public charging credit so drivers can charge on the go.
The new Charged By Chevrolet program provides eligible customers access to faster charging at home by offering the new available Dual Level Charge Cord, standard on 2022 Bolt EUV and soon to be available for purchase on 2022 Bolt EV. The automaker didn’t say how much the option would be on the Bolt EV.
Owners can plug the compatible charging cord directly into the 240-volt home outlet, negating the need for a standalone charging station. A 240-volt home outlet is typically used for ovens and clothes dryers.
“We understand the ability to conveniently charge at home or on the go plays heavily into a customer’s decision to purchase an EV and we’re providing the access to solutions to simplify the EV experience for all Canadians,” Chevrolet Canada Brand Director Laura Pacey said in a statement. “This is another step to make EV ownership easier and more accessible to everyone.”
When using the Dual Level Charge Cord, the 2022 Bolt EV achieves approximately up to 41 km per hour of charge, while the 2022 Bolt EUV achieves approximately up to 40 km per hour of charge.
Since its market introduction in 2017, global sales of the Bolt EV have topped 100,000, with more than 13,000 of those sales in Canada.
