I heard that BMG has level 2 chargers.
Which building?

Wouldn't it show up on the charging map?
I try to sound as intelligent as possible.

Take it back, I donít think itís level 2, itís one better than the normal plug but not the super fast ones. And they probably arenít advertising it for the public.

Level 2 is not super fast.

Hows everyone charging?

I charge at home with my L2 charger. On trips, DCFC of course, and, my home L2 I take with me on trips just in case, can always use RV places. Most everywhere we've stayed has some way to charge on trips.

It could have, but was at 60% at the moment
Bolt or Ioniq?

No. Rebate should be coming back July 1st (applied directly at the dealership (which probably means less reason to discount the car itself, not that it is getting discounted much now anyways, DTC)).

Even though it's a 259 mile range my car maxes out about 185 miles, I assume because of the way I drive. (Yes, the battery settings are on, maxing out the battery @ 100% every charge)

I've gotten up to 400. It does depend on how fast you drive, the weather, temperature, etc. I am older and retired, so, drive speed limit at most since time is not an issue. A lot of mine is rural "highways", if you can call them that. Or tiny "cities".

My guess - you are mostly highway miles and drive 75+.

400? Wow. And here I thought the manufacturer would take any measure to boost their rated range

I believe highways will give you more miles since there's less acceleration. I'm almost always city driving in Lakewood which is mostly "stop and go traffic" and acceleration to catch the turning signals.

May be a reason to come out of retirement.

EVs will give you more mileage in the city. Every time you brake, it charge the battery.

I also just plug mine in for a regular charge, but mostly use it locally.  I heard that BMG has level 2 chargers.
Has anyone used them?
Iím wondering which theyíre located

There is a mileage by speed chart you can find on reddit, this is disproven. 35 mph or so is the ideal best mileage speed. Most all of the acceleration used comes back via regeneration. It's simply wind resistance that proves to be the difference. On the highway, the energy screen will typically show you 2.5-3.5, maybe 4. On city roads, it's easy to hit 6-7 in decent weather.

The 400 was one time ever, I think I had no highway that "tank". Generally, I top out at around 300, except in winter or summer. Also, note this is a 2020 which has 10% larger battery capacity. 300 is < 5 mi/kWH.

I couldnít really find any updated info online
