GM has named AeroVironment’s EVSE-RS as the official charging station accessory for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV.

AeroVironment (NASDAQ: AVAV), which also makes drones and missiles for military customers, builds a variety of EVSE, from workplace charging stations to portable “trunk chargers.”

As an official accessory, AeroVironment’s EVSE-RS charging station will be labeled with a GM part number and will be available through GM parts departments.  The level 2 EVSE-RS is designed for indoor or outdoor operation, and is equipped with various safety features.

“We selected AeroVironment due to their strong brand recognition, reputation for reliability, and decades of leadership in supporting EVs,” said Darin Gesse, Bolt EV Product Manager.

“Our broad array of EV charging solutions is helping to make EV ownership more efficient and practical,” said AeroVironment VP Ken Karklin. “GM’s selection of our EVSE-RS is a strong validation of our approach.”

    Strange, there is no 32 amp EVSE on the website. This company wants $100 more for ten feet of cable on the same 30 amp unit. There is a crossed out list price of $1049 to $699 for a 30 amp, 25ft cable L2 unit. Clipper Creek has better prices and, frankly, I have not seen any of these units in my area. Well, Nissan dealers have a similar unit with different front plates. ???
