240V Charging for 2013 Chevy Volt: only 13.2 Amps?

Hello Folks,

I own a 2013 Chevy Volt Premier. Have owned it since 2015, and it only has abou 45,000 miles on the odometer.

Always used the 120V Level 1 charger that came along with the vehicle. But recently I installed 32 Amps Level 2 Charger in my garage and, as expected, it charges the Volt much faster than the one that came with the vehicle, but it seems to only feed up to 13.2Amps to the Volt. Is that a limitation of the Chevy Volt itself (that internally does the conversion from AC to DC) or is the new charger defective?

The maximum amps the Volt can pull is 16 IIRC.
