Hi all,
I just leased a 2017 Volt LT. This is my first EV and I'm really enjoying it. Traded in an older ICE car, that helped get my payments pretty low. Its a base Volt, no other options. It's a smooth ride, pretty quick when it's needed.
Still learning about the car.
My commute averages 40 miles so its all EV. Really nice not having to visit a gas station every week.
Using the L1 charger @ 12amps. I usually get a full charge by the next morning, but not always.
I was looking thru the forums and I read about some guys converting the stock L1 EVSE from 120v/8-12amp to 240v/16amp (if I remember correctly. will have to look it up again). Want to give that a try though it might be beyond my abilities.
Have a great holiday everyone. Will try to be checking in regularly..!

Congrats on your new car and welcome to the forum. I think you'll enjoy the car for its nice smooth and quiet ride as well as for it's responsiveness. FYI not going to the gas station never gets old -- it gets more addictive!

Congrats and welcome!

Please post a pic so we can have proof you leased a Volt, compliment your car's good looks, and judge you based on the color you chose. FYI, Kinetic Blue is the best color. ;)

Thanks all, I got a Silver Ice Metallic, the black and chrome trim is a good contrast, I like it.
Red is for sure the fastest, I think Silver will give it a good run though! LOL!
And Blue must be the best, because there are a lot of Blue Volts here.
I'll get a pic up soon.
