    If you've ever been unfortunate enough to have very little juice left in your Bolt's battery pack, indicated by the repeated warning chime and "Propulsion Power is Reduced - Plug in soon", you will have been frustrated by the lack of any visible indication of remaining range.  This can lead to alarm and consternation about exactly where the car is actually going to 'die' on you.

    Here's a little trick to assuage those fears.  Stop the car.  Switch it off.  Then upon restarting, the remaining range estimation will return to the dash display (approx. 15kms.) hopefully giving you the reassurance that you do indeed have sufficient range left to make it safely home or to the nearest charger. 

    Hope this helps.
