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?

Many thanks to all. It looks as if it might be well to hold off purchase until this is resolved.

I'm not sure what you're expecting to be "resolved". If you buy a Bolt with the quick charge option it will charge from any station that is J1772 or CCS compatible. It will not charge from a CHAdeMO charging station unless that station also provides a J1772 or CCS plug. That is not going to change - GM is not going to offer CHAdeMO charging on the Bolt in the future.
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.
