If the chemistry is similar, and I suspect it is since Hyundai is likely using the Korean version of lithium ion, you'd think the charging characteristics would be similar. GM has been very cautious though so it's possible that the charging power is lower. However, at the moment all these issues are somewhat academic. When the 150 kW CCS chargers start showing up we may see what the Bolt EV is capable of.
I understand both the Bolt EV and IONIQ Electric have cells sourced from LG Chem, but I don't know if the chemistry is the same. Obviously the battery enclosure and thermal management systems are different.

The IONIQ appears to have a max charge rate of ~2.3C, while the Spark EV charges at ~2.5C. The Bolt EV has only been publicly demonstrated at ~0.7C on a 125A charger.
