GM has made a number of improvements to the Chevy Bolt EV's software, including features that control the battery charge level. Let's look at how these systems work and how they should be used.

Depending on the model year, Chevrolet Bolt EV owners have access to built-in software that allows them to limit the level the battery will charge to. This functionality is fairly common in electric vehicles; however, it typically isn’t an option for most other battery electric devices. As a result, new EV owners are often confused about how, when, and why they might want to use this feature. In this article, I will explore the Chevy Bolt EV’s charge limiting features and explain the reasons a Bolt EV owner might want to use them.
