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?

For faster charging when on the road the Bolt can be ordered with Level III combined charging system (CCS) DC Fast Charging as a $750 option, then you can charge at up to 80kw rate for up to 90 miles EV range for 30 minutes of CCS charging.
I think you are confusing GM's marketing slogan regarding the Bolt EV's fast charging with it actual capability.

There is no 90 mile limit of EV range for fast charging on the Bolt EV. If you have the time, you can charge a depleted Bolt EV all the way to 80% (approx 200 miles) or even more!
