DCFC would be cool, but not cost-effective. When discussing the plans for changes in the Gen 2 Volt, Volt chief engineer Andrew Farah said in the fall of 2012 that faster charging rates were a relatively low priority for most Gen 1 Volt owners and may not be a factor in the new Volt. It costs some $$$ to build in the special power electronics and wiring to manage fast charge DC battery charging.

The $ are better spent improving EV range, gas mpg, adding a 5th seat, and achieving more effective and power-efficient winter heating without the engine running.
