I leased my 2018 Premier approx 2-weeks ago, and I’m very happy with my choice. Bright silver with all black (really a dark grey) interior - very sharp looking. I debated waiting for a ‘19 but decided to go forward with a good deal.

As you all already know, it’s a great car all around. Hugely satisfying to drive, as well. I’m not enthusiastic about a 19-hr recharge time (8-amp setting starting at zero), so I ordered a level 2 charger, don’t have it yet.

Welcome! If you're house wiring can handle it, you can bump the car to draw 12 amps and cut some hours off the charge time. Voltstats.net is a fun site to track your mileage on. Check it out!

Welcome. Hope you enjoy it. We have 2.

Also hate to say it now but with an inexpensive pigtail adapter (see ideafab on Etsy) your standard portable charger that was provided with the Volt can also charge at level 2 (at 12 amps). Cuts charge time down to little more than 5 hours. Using a 16 amp level 2 gets it to a little more than 4.

I bought two very inexpensive dual voltage EVSEs that could either do level one or 16 A at level two (with the aforementioned adapters). The oems remain in our trunks.

Welcome! I'm a little South of you, but if you have a good dealer in your area let me know. I'll take a short drive for a dealership that has good Volt support.

Yes, I knew that I could adapt the oem charger when I ordered the full-up level 2 evse. It has 3 different amperage settings; I’ll use the lower one now, but can switch to higher level for next car in 3 years :)

Volt support in Central NJ

Welcome! I'm a little South of you, but if you have a good dealer in your area let me know. I'll take a short drive for a dealership that has good Volt support.
If you are near Lawrenceville, there’s a very good Chevy dealer there - Ciocca Motors at QuakerBridge Mall - where I leased mine.
