\r\n Just wondering how charged the Bolt is when it departs the factory and at delivery?
\r\n
\r\nAnyone tracking this?\r\n

    \nThere you go. My Bolt never hit the charger before my shipper picked it up, so 40 mile (~16-20%) charge is roughly what Bolts ship with.\r\n

    \nUnfortunately when I bought my 2017 Volt I hadn\'t intended on buying or taking delivery on a Saturday afternoon. I dropped by my local dealer at 1:30 pm and had a deal in place at 1:45, they told me to be back at 3:30 pm for delivery. When we arrived at 3:25 pm the car was just being pulled into the showroom and plugged into their Level II EVSE. It was empty, during delivery they managed to get 15 miles of charge into it. With a Volt that\'s no BIG deal.
    \n
    \nBut I\'m really more interested in the SOC when it leave the factory for curiosity sake. That\'s all.\r\n

    \r\n Not sure if true but there\'s a thread on the My Nissan Leaf Forum where someone says if the dealer neglects to charge the Bolt it will have only 20% SOC at delivery. This is probably one reason GM is requiring a CCS charger at dealerships selling Bolts.\r\n

      Default Bolt's battery SOC leaving factory

      Just wondering how charged the Bolt is when it departs the factory and at delivery?

      Anyone tracking this?
