    The utilities around here are bending over backwards to give incentives for EV owners to charge off peak.
    In our area, our utility looses money when users charge during peak hours.

    I know of a gas station that has one.
    It isn't to save customers though, as gas stations make almost nothing off of gasoline.
    Charging at a gas station isn't very convenient unless the gas station...

    A BEV won't work for everyone.
    Some just have driving patterns that preclude a BEV.
    For others, they simply believe they will always need a backup. It is just psychology.

    It is true that energy-wise, 1 gallon of gasoline is equivalent to 34kWh.
    One you put that in your gas tank, 70% to 80% of that energy is used to...

    No problem. I just want to be clear that the 30% loss is average. Worst case will be more and it depends upon garaged or not, preheating on a plug or not, and distances.

    I think you misunderstood your friend.
    There is no loss of performance in cold.
    If it gets very cold, Regen is limited and top power is limited. However, the remaining power available is still...

    Updates that don't require a dealer are pretty new.
    Ford would actually be the first I have heard of beyond Tesla, so I won't fault GM for not doing that now.
    I do hope they do so in the near...

    I was very happy with the sequel as they got much better access to the companies.
    Better movie than WKTEC in my mind.

    3rd winter with Teslas.
    On average, we get about a 30% reduction in January (in Minneapolis).

    If Apple started making cars, it wouldn't be Tesla that is in trouble, it would be car dealerships.
    Apple could easily sell direct and, unlike Tesla, has a huge war chest to lobby hard for fair...

    I found the door made access to the back easier.
    However, I'm about average size.
    Of course, the back seat makes little difference to me, the range of the Bolt is what would grab me.

    No arguments on the styling, it is a very subjective decision and if you value it highest, and prefer the styling of the Fisker, or ELR, or others, you should buy it.

    The thread was started with a title and first post comparing the ELR and Tesla.
    If it weren't so full of incorrect information, and opinion stated as fact, it would have had little response.
