Chevrolet held a Facebook Q&A with a GM Energy Performance Engineer who worked on the Chevy Bolt EV. The results were a mix of half-answers, practical advice, and hints at why the car hasn't improved as much as some had hoped.





If you've read any of the Chevy Bolt EV stories on Torque News, you'll know by now that we Bolt drivers are a little bit nerdy. A number of us enjoy efficiency tests, assessing range estimates, and analyzing fast charging sessions in the kind of detail that others would find an effective substitute for Nytol.

You can imagine our response, then, to the prospect of a Facebook AMA ("Ask Me Anything") session with a GM engineer who has intimate knowledge of the Bolt EV's battery design and conception. One hour to unpack the true capabilities of the first truly affordable long-range electric car? To pose all the questions we've speculated over for three years to someone who can answer them with a degree of authority? Bliss!
