    16* 3.3? With many Volt owners over 40 mile AER, only the leadfoots are seeing 3.3. When I get over 40miles in my 2011, that is more like 4.0. Give me 16 kWh of usable battery and I think 62+...

    I just fault them for not dumping when the price was $280. Slow trigger finger, the Germans.

    PiP = HOV access.

    Great - we ship our money overseas to buy a fully imported plug in for people to possibly not plug it in and get free access to an HOV lane. Maybe we should re-think this?

    If I worked in the area my daughter does, I could go almost 100% all EV like you results show. A trip down there and back is under 30 miles and if someone did that every weekday and one or more on...

    My belief is that if anything goes wrong, it is the loss of one cell. The pack is made up of "triplets". If a cell goes bad, the triplet sitting in the 1/3 of the battery should signal a low...

    It looks like it may be a battery module installed behind each solar module? If not, then the box they describe is only 1.2kWh. Hopefully modular and expandable. Solar city's home module is 10...

    Sag, one thing to look at now is if you order a Model S now, you can have a December delivery. Generally, if they are producing faster now they will run down backlog pretty fast. December is a big...

    The price spreadsheets show one thing, that Tesla saw many sales of P85+ and thought to go further and make an AWD supercar of sorts. It is a money grab and the company needs money. They will sell...

    I use the manual method on my 2011 to relearn, but someone here said that the mode isn't available on the newer models. After a tire repair a while back, I had to reset them due to one of the...

    44,000 miles, stock tires except one which had a bubble and I put on a used tire ordered on sale from a tire reseller nearby.

    Should last 15k longer. I ran a set of tires on a Chrysler Concord...

    2011 here, 44,000 miles. Brakes are nearly new in terms of spec. Had it at a shop for a tire rotation and they did a look at the brakes and said they were in great shape. Only real wear is when my...

    warm wouldn't be much. Hot to the touch, or burnt finger, could be something to strongly worry about. But definitely get it adjusted anyway - it is possible it is part of it.

    California is looking to change the net-metering laws after 2016. Solar may not be all it is cracked up to be in a couple years there.

    First, you can solve your concerns probably simply by...

    The problem is "battery glut".

    We don't need big batteries. We don't need fast charging batteries. We need batteries to support our daily driving habits. They just about nailed it with the Volt...

    Bought my Volt with 93 miles on it. Drove it home. 1023 miles for that first trip. I have done numerous 700 mile round trips without a recharge.

    It can't be that hard to take two Spark EV drivetrains, hook them together via software and managed speed controllers and put that under a CUV with a genset and 25-30 kWh of batteries. Or 50 kWh of...

    Cadillac? They do need a makeover.

    But GM needs to get to work on either an affordable electric pickup truck or something like an EREV small pickup and CUV.
