    Don't forget cold temps lower tire pressure and when it drops, so does range. I keep mine at 39-40 psi even when temps are 30F. Have had to lower pressure on some days when air temps rise so they...

    They may want new customers. I don't see a lot of new ESVE installations going on out there for new commercial J-1772. If they are like Car Charging (current Blink owners, etc.) - there is perhaps...

    Yes, but they rarely do get one unless they were already into the whole EV/green/conservation thing.

    I hit 42 the other day with 32*F. Not bad for a 2011 with 50K on the odo. It was in...

    Nobody "needs" 80+ kWh on-board. I would be glad to have 30-35 kWh and the occasional DC FC.

    The problem with 80+ kWh on board (whether high 400Wh/kg or less) is that it puts more batteries than...

    Try to arrange a weekend test drive. I think a lot of the Tesla "desire" is in the lack of available stores to test drive and talk to salespeople. If you can test drive for a weekend, determine if...

    I've been to two other dealerships who said the same thing. Always say "# of years running" as well. They say it verbally and never in print. Classic may be the TX dealer who is #1 in truck...

    You could try to locate a used one for under $18K. There are some great deals out there if you go looking. And if you find it isn't for you after a year, your mileage reimbursement will easily pay...

    Money i am not spending at the gas station is going toward my Volt monthly payment. If I had kept my prior 25mpg car, Which was paid off, might have saved money. However, we don't buy EVs and EREVs...
