In late 2022 and early 2023, customers from Ford, Rivian and Bolt separately reported an unusual and slightly terrifying experience while fast charging their vehicles. In the middle of their charge sessions, customers recalled hearing a large boom, then a pop. Seconds later, their charging stopped and their battery ceased to work. Tow trucks were summoned to take their vehicles to the nearest service center. EV expert John Voelcker joins us today to go deeper into what exactly happened. And he sheds light on why we are still far away from a good experience at most public fast-charting locations in America. What are the stubborn barriers to a better experience? And how long must we wait before fast charging will be stress free? Listen to John Voelcker on this episode of the Driving With Dunne podcast.
