In unfortunate news for one Alaskan Chevrolet Bolt EV owner, they have been informed that replacing their battery under recall will take around four years. A person wrote to InsideEVs explaining the predicament they have with their 2020 model year car residing in the remote Alaskan town of Sitka.
Sitka is a tiny, and we mean under 8,500 people tiny, unified city-borough located just southwest of the capital of Juneau. It’s its own island, with no road connection to mainland Alaska, and definitely no charging infrastructure. The only way to get there is by boat, plane, or ferry, and the ferry only comes once a month and takes a whopping 12 hours. Why the owner, Patricia, owns an EV there with no charging infrastructure and seeing as EVs, and the Bolt especially, hate cold weather, is beyond us but we have to applaud her for it.
