OSHAWA — Chevrolet is making EV ownership easier for Canadians by covering the cost of the standard installation of a Level 2 (240-volt) charging home outlet for eligible customers who purchase or lease a new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV or Bolt EV.

Charged By Chevrolet provides eligible customers access to faster charging right where they want it – at home – when paired with the new available Dual Level Charge Cord, standard on 2022 Bolt EUV and soon to be available for purchase on 2022 Bolt EV. Owners can plug a compatible charging cord directly into the 240-volt home outlet negating the need for a standalone charging station.

“This is another step to make EV ownership easier and more accessible to everyone,” said Laura Pacey, brand director of Chevrolet Canada. “We understand the ability to conveniently charge at home or on the go plays heavily into a customer’s decision to purchase an EV and we’re providing the access to solutions to simplify the EV experience for all Canadians.”

Since most EV owners can satisfy their daily needs by plugging in at home, it is essential to make at-home charging easier for current and interested customers.

  • In the U.S., most plug-in electric vehicle drivers do more than 80% of their charging at home.

For eligible customers who already have Level 2 charging capability, or don’t require it, Chevrolet is also offering a $750 FLO public charging credit so eligible customers can charge on the go.
