    Self selecting bias.
    It makes sense that those buying a 75-85 mile BEV have driving patterns that are less than that. Those buying an EREV obviously plan to use the full range and then some. So...

    Toyota drive quality is awful.
    Lexus, that is another matter, they make the quietest vehicle that gets its motive power from controlled explosions.

    Don't get me wrong, our former Prii were...

    FCVs do have some advantages over gas cars.
    Based on them having an electric drive train, they short drive very smoothly and quietly. Power delivery should also be very responsive.
    However, I have...

    With EVs, you have a rudimentary infrastructure already in place.
    With hydrogen, you have no such thing. With FCVs you are 100% reliant on the public infrastructure. With EVs (extended range...

    You may very well be correct.
    I do agree, however, that 1 month of sales doesn't tell you much of anything.
    Trends over time are much more telling that a snapshot in isolation.

    It may work with the smaller batteries needed.
    The issue is, you have to figure out how to profitably have three times the number of batteries in the vehicles, sitting and waiting.
    The way I...

    Ah, so you meant to take this completely off topic then.
    Perhaps you could do a search for a thread comparing the Volt and Model S and pick it up there?

    The article is looking at the top three sellers in June. If the Porsche Pannemera was one of the top three sellers it would have been mentioned. If the Fiat 500e had been one of the top three...

    It depends who the audience is.

    For some discussions, where the customer is primarily looking for a plug-in vehicle, all plug-ms get compared because there are so few (especially outside of...

    First of all, EVs are not the competition, conventional cars are.

    The Volt has a couple issues working against its sales numbers.
    The impending second gen Volt has, I'm guessing, a number of...

    Listen I would love to see Apple building cars.
    They could be as innovative, if not more, than Tesla and they have the deep pockets to be able to single-handedly propel EVs into the mainstream...

    I still can't see Apple building a car. I'd love to be wrong, more innovation is good for us all and I would love to see what they could come up with.
    I agree with Don, the closest they would get...

    I'd love to hear about your impressions of it, if you do get one.

    I simply wont go back to the inconvenience of fueling up somewhere other than my garage.
    Of course, Toyota would not sell one to me until there are some commercial Hydrogen stations in Minnesota......

    We are currently building a Net Zero house.
    By the energy models, we expect to use about twice the electricity as the average American household (20,000kWh/year).
    So judging from electricity alone,...

    Not surprising, our government is huge.
    However, the biggest money and CO2 saver is, as Brianbear pointed out, the DoD.
    Cutting that would be a huge help in many ways.

    The "ludicrous" upgrade is a hardware upgrade.
    The price of the 70D has not been lowered. Tesla has added a RWD 70 which is 5K less than the 70D.
    New "range" upgrade gives a 10% range increase. ...

    Generally a good idea to summarize the story you are linking.
    It is a story about California's plan to limit the state incentives by income.

    Couldn't agree more. This will help free up charging stations.
    All plugins I am aware of can send a message when charging is complete, and many/all(?) charging stations can as well.

    No, that is like saying Toyota got it wrong because so many people need to haul stuff in my area.
    Gen1 lackluster sales were due to uncooperative dealers and bad marketing. Both of which led to no...
