    Also, if it is any real consolation. Germany is barely buying any Teslas. Why should we buy their B-Class? They won't outsell the BMW i3 in the US. Might in Germany.

    Sure, that's fine by me. I charge at night, most of the time - usually in the 3am to 7am time period. Sometimes 1am-5am. rarely do I charge during peak load (hot August afternoons). Off-peak...

    Not me. My want is to maintain buying domestic cars, perhaps "forever". I got 50 miles AER this morning in the Volt and 19.6 miles out of .46 gallon. I know a future model is coming from GM (maybe...

    The problem with this is now that one station is installed, you get 12 people interested and then what? More stations? How many more? Make them 120V or higher? If everyone had a Volt and plugged...

    It is a "build the building and we will fill it with some equipment".

    What pressure do you keep them? I run 40-41psi. My OEM tires are at 41 K miles now (for a 2011) and I did have to replace one tire due to a bubble formed after hitting a pot hole (my daughter is...

    If they can build them cheaply, fine. But at what scale? Millions per day? Per hour? what "could" it get to in a factory setting.

    The most efficient solar PV cell is on the space station -...

    Battery density does rely on the places that Ions can land (ie. honeycomb or otherwise). Imagine the fibers of a steel wool pad and all the air space between. That is the kind of idea you need to...

    Well, right - me too. 40kWh would be totally awesome for most drivers' needs. But maybe I am hearing too much from the investors who say Tesla is the only way and that Tesla cancelled the MS40 due...

    With an Equinox sized CUV, they could flatten the battery pack to a 8" depth using cells turned on their side and possibly get 100+ miles easily out of 35-40 kWh. I can get nearly 40-45 miles in the...

    DC fast charging is good. If you can get it. Went by my nearest Nissan dealer today. It is Sunday so they are closed in PA. They have a DC fast charging unit. iCEd by their own lot guys. Local...

    Dave, slapshot came from an M5 prior. I think he likes to push it a little bit. I have done 52 miles last summer in my 2011 and do 42 all the time. I expect to do nearly 50 this coming Tuesday...

    Craigslist had a 2011 36k mile Volt in GA for $15999. I would say to get the best volt prices, you will have to wait for the 2012 to come off lease next year. Canadians will be picking up a lot of...

    Does it matter? I have never been more than 150 miles from a gas station. It is an estimate. Depends on drive cycle. If you barely use gas, the mpg during those short times when you do factors...

    If anything, if you just bought it, talk to them about returning it due to faulty systems and not trusting the dealership with their representation of a working car. Many states have lemon laws for...

    The Fisker solar roof was about $2000. That is the same price as the Supercharger access at Tesla.

    3 miles a week for those who park outside, the same energy consumed to cool the car in hot...

    They need to get to a lower price point. Stuff like the $2k navigation upgrade adds up considerably. We need to see EVs get to sub $29K and lower for them to really gain traction. But do offer...

    I hope Volt Gen II allows a max charge setting. Some people do live atop mountains and could gain a few kWh while regen is used going down the hill. Maybe allowing a setting of 90% would be a large...

    They have to so something soon and the 2015 NA auto show sounds like it is needed. Tesla fans and watchers are basically calling GM the loser in the battle of EVs. Well, mostly investors saying...
