We found the nearby Chevy dealer had interrupted the charge on my car in order to plug a Bolt into the DCFC station, so my departure was delayed.


They were able to unplug you? Was the car locked? I find that DCFC in particular has issues of “letting go” on my 2015 even if I unlock the car.


This wasn't explained. The VW folks assumed the e-Golf had been fully charged when they prepped it for me, then moved it to the front. But I found it had 32 miles of range, spoke to my rep, who apologized and escorted me to the DCFC where he unplugged the Bolt and moved the charging to the e-Golf. As compensation, VW offered a full tank of gas for my Prius the next time we came that way.

One 2019 feature that I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere is the Car screens now include a "Think Blue. Trainer" which attempts to give drivers feedback about the efficiency of their driving. To me, it looks like a graphic accelerometer log and a questionable use of both developer and vehicle resources -- I'll be surprised if anyone finds it more useful than distracting or amusing.


The "Think Blue. Trainer" started with the 2016+ models. I never use it.

The think blue trainer would be more interesting to me if it could export the data to a csv for me to look at later, rather than show unhelpful graphs while I’m driving. I never use it. CarPlay all the time.
