    Isn't there a option through the central console to reduce the charging rate? Or am I just remembering one of the many other plug-ins we test drove? I searched both the manual and the guide (I still don't understand the distinction) for the term 'charge' and found nothing about this. If there is such a setting could someone help direct me to which menu it is under. Thanks.

    We can set the charge rate through the JuiceBox charge station. I don't believe the car has that option.

    The charge rate is controlled by the EVSE cable which sends a 12v signal on the pilot wire to tell the car charger how much current to draw. Sample values from the J1772 Wiki:


    The signal can actually specify any amperage between 0 and 90A

    There are no known settings in the car to override this.

    It's available on the other cars you test drove... Not on the clarity.

    Sadly, I have come to the same conclusion. And yet I have no regrets. Maybe it was the Volt, the Bolt, both? We are happy with the Clarity.
