So, about four months ago I turned in a 2014 Nissan LEAF I had been leasing for three and a half years and started a new three-year lease on a Chevy Bolt. It’s been a great decision for me, especially since I am in a post-divorce, one-car household.
It's fun being an earlier adopter of electric cars. I'm not as early an adopter as some electric car enthusiasts, but, having driven an all-electric car for almost four years now, I'm definitely mostly at the forefront off the EV revolution.
It's truly amazing how little most people in the United States know about electric cars.
I wish that not all CCS/Level 3/"Fast" electric vehicle chargers were in metro areas, especially out here in the American West. I just decided not to drive my Chevy Bolt from Denver to my sister's in Goleta, Calif. (1,200 miles one way) for Christmas because there is not a SINGLE CCS charger along I-70/I-15 between Denver and Fillmore, Utah, 511 miles west of Denver.
So, I drove my newly leased Chevy Bolt — a red LT — from my townhome in Littleton, Colo. to Estes Park, Colo. to attend a meditation retreat this weekend.
