Since this wording falls under "Powertrain" (pg 52), I wouldn't conclude it relates to the EVSE being capable of charging at both voltages -- just the car's powertrain being "capable." Then, additionally, the car "includes 24' HD recharging cord."

The EVSE that comes with the 2016 and 2017 is capable of both 120 and 240 volt operation... All you need for 240 is a simple connector adapter.

Well we already know the EVSE is capable of dual voltage. Maybe the changed to a 240V plug and include a 120V adapter? Maybe...

Interesting, but I don't interpret it that way.
"120V or 240V recharging capability includes 24’ HD recharging cord"
as in:
"120V or 240V recharging capability. Includes 24’ HD recharging cord"
(whatever HD means, heavy duty?)

Understand the unit Can support 240V, but I don't think GMs current safety certifications include 240VAC. The label would say so if it did.

The statement is ambiguous and not as clear as it should be. I think it intended to say that they have a 120v included charger (w 24' cord), but you can also charge at 240v with optional aftermarket equipment.

As we all know now the included evse cord box that comes with the car can do dual voltage (1400w @120v and 2800w @240v).
