Owners should park their Chevrolet Bolts outside and away from structures and not charge them overnight. The vehicles should also be recharged after each use an, and owners should not wait until the batter is almost run down (deep discharge mode) before being charged back up.
GM says that the vehicles should be set to the 90% state of charge limitation using Hilltop Reserve mode, which applies to the 2017 and 2018 model years, or Target Charge Level mode for 2019-2022 model years.
