Charging away from home

Had my first visit to a local Chevy dealer a couple of weeks ago to look at a Bolt and was mostly pleased. The largest problem was not seeing a CHAdeMO plug. I understand that Chevy said charging would be available using one and that it would also be available at Tesla Superchargers. That has since been shown to be false. The dealer had no one who knew what I was talking about. I got an offer through email with no information about quick charging. Sent a reply asking again about quick charge. No reply. What is going on?

Chevy never said they would use CHAdeMO, they do however offer the $700 option for DC fast charging via the SAE combo connector.
Yup. And they definitely never said anything about Tesla Supercharger access.
Threads like these make my head hurt and my heart sad.

I almost feel that people should be required to attend a ride along and demo run by EV owners before they ever visit a dealership.
I'm not aware that Maine has any CCS chargers at present. What I'm looking for is assurance that, if I buy a Bolt there will be enough quick chargers available so that I can drive moderately long trips. There are many CHAdeMO chargers in my area so that would be fine. I suspect that CCS will be available, but when? The local Chevy dealer has none and the one I'm working with has only L2.
Maine has a few. The northern end of the state is a bit sparse, but you could always cross over to Canada if you were that desperate.
