Chevrolet Reimagines Dream EV Garage
Chevrolet recently unveiled a complete garage makeover inspired by a Bolt EV owner. This EV garage came about when she realized she was missing out on her favorite gas station impulse buys since she charges her vehicle’s battery pack at home and skips the gas station altogether. Chevrolet went to work figuring out how to bring EV drivers who charge at home the perks of stopping at a gas station, like enjoying chips, footlongs and pizza.

What EV Drivers Missed
One great perk of driving electric cars is not having to buy or pump gas thanks to charging at home. But after years of hearing stories from Bolt EV owners who love living the EV lifestyle, Chevy noticed that there were a few things many EV drivers said they missed. Specifically, EV drivers miss the guilty pleasure snacks found at the gas station mini mart.
With many EV owners now charging at home, Chevrolet decided to transform one Bolt EV owner’s garage into the “ultimate EV garage” to demonstrate how EV drivers can have the best of both worlds: indulging in the tasty treats they love, while charging their electric car at home.
Designing the All-New EV Garage
Chevrolet collaborated with celebrity designer and builder Wendell Holland, recognized for his popular television shows in home design. Holland helped redesign Denver resident and Chevy Bolt owner Pamela Talley’s garage into an at-home convenience store. Chevy even polled the brand’s social media audience to gather followers’ favorite gas station snacks and incorporated these into the makeover. Pamela’s garage is now stocked with gas station favorites such as a frozen drink machine, hot dog warmer, beef jerky buffet, chips, candy, a drink fridge, and more.
Holland said, “I’ve seen firsthand how homeowners are evolving their space to fit the EV lifestyle, so collaborating with Chevy on this garage transformation was a seamless fit. To create the ultimate garage space for Pamela, we incorporated inspiration from beloved gas station snacks and transformed the space into a modern oasis for EV living.”
