A great trip report from Paul Gipe about a trip from Bakersfield to LAX, a total of 240 miles.  2017 Chevy Bolt EV was used. The Bolt performed like any other car petrol/diesel

Paul says:

Unlike my previous experience driving to LAX in an electric vehicle (EV), I don’t have much to report. The Bolt worked as designed and I had ample charge and could stay with traffic. The Bolt performed just like any other car, gas or diesel. It simply did its job and I didn’t have to worry about whether I’d make it to the Level 2 chargers at the hotel.

Why we like this trip report:

Paul provides very detailed account of the trip and plenty of charging stats.  Never a boring read 🙂
