Our reader Jay Lucas of Alexandria, Virginia, sent us the following account of his own recent trip. What follows are his words, lightly edited by Green Car Reports for clarity and style.
I live in Alexandria, Virginia, and my wife Maxine lives in Louisville, Kentucky (don’t ask). Could my new Bolt EV take me the 650 miles to her house and back? I decided to find out.
On a bright June Monday morning my buddy Stew and I drove out of Alexandria just before the morning rush hour to reach Louisville that night.
