Fact or Fiction? General Motors Offers an Easy Way to Connect with At Home Charging Electricians
General Motors has launched a partnership with Qmerit to make at-home charging easier and more accessible.
We’re breaking down these charging myths to celebrate our new partnership with Qmerit, something that will help current and future Chevrolet Bolt EV owners connect with pre-approved, experienced at-home charging station installers. The tool will allow EV owners to obtain and compare up to three competitive quotes – all from the Chevy Charging webpage.
*Your actual range will vary based on several factors, including temperature, terrain, battery age and how you use and maintain your vehicle.
FACT: Switching to an EV becomes more cost efficient over time. Under the hood, EVs are different than internal combustion vehicles and require less maintenance, as there are fewer moving parts that need to be regularly inspected or changed, such as belts and engine oil. Compared with an average new vehicle of the same size, the EPA estimates that the Bolt EV could save an owner about $70 per month in fuel costs.
To save more money, Bolt EV owners can use Programmable Charging, including Electric Rate Preference, to start and end their charging session during off-peak hours when power is less expensive. General Motors is working with utilities to simplify the use of its smart charging functionality, saving customers energy and money by optimizing charging to occur when it is best for the electrical grid.
