Barring the unforeseen, my two daughters and I will complete our 2,400-mile round trip road trip in our all-electric Chevy Bolt tomorrow evening in Littleton, Colo.I would definitely do this round trip again in my Bolt -- which is a joy to drive. But more DC fast charging stations along the route THAT ACTUALLY WORK are needed.
So, I will be driving from Denver to Santa Barbara with my two teen-age daughters in my all-electric 2017 Chevy Bolt starting tomorrow, Tues., July 24, with a planned arrival date in Santa Barbara of Thurs., July 26.I planned the trip out using an app called PlugShare -- plugshare.com. Three days, and two nights. Normally, the 1,200- mile trip would be done in two days, but with an electric car that is not a Tesla, one must count on taking extra time for road trips, at least out here in the wide open spaces of the American West.
