But you can always leave your girlfriend to test the Tesla autopilot:
At the same time, no easy-to-access database of safety-certified charging stations exists.
That means buyers must do quite a bit of homework, something they may not be motivated to undertake even if they realize the need.
Last year, charging-equipment supplier ClipperCreek conducted a survey asking customers what they thought the most important features for a charging station were.
Safety certifications ranked dead last on that list.
But that may be because consumers assume that—like other electrical appliances—all charging stations in the U.S. are safety certified, ClipperCreek’s marketing and communications director Suzanne Guinn told Charged EVs.
That is not an assumption shoppers should make, at least when buying charging stations online.
In other words, look for stations that are UL-certified to ensure that a knowledgeable third party has deemed a specific model to comply with basic safety practices.
At a speech in Detroit yesterday at the SAE World Congress, a top General Motor’s executive took some shots at Tesla.
Dan Nicholson, General Motor’s Vice President of global propulsion systems, did mention that some customers may confuse the Bolt name with the Volt. Beyond that, however, most of what he had to say was comparing the Bolt electric vehicle with Tesla’s recently revealed Model 3 sedan.
Nicholson had this to say (in no particular order):

“It will be in production by the end of 2016, so it’s not necessary to put down $1,000 and wait until 2018 or sometime after that.”
“GM’s balance sheet is in pretty strong shape, so we don’t need to take $1,000 of your money just to hold a spot”
