General Motors is not Tesla, and so it does not have its own fast-charging (i.e., Supercharger) network. So you’re on your own when planning a road trip, though quick-charging stations are coming online fast. The Chevrolet Bolt EV will DC-fast charge using the SAE Combo connector (as opposed to the CHAdeMO standard for Nissan Leaf). ChargePoint, Blink, and SemaConnect are three major charging station operators that you can put to use, but you will need to set up accounts and download apps to use any of them. Once you are set, though, you can add 90 miles of range per 30 minutes charging.
