    Good find. That would be huge. Basically it's what Envia was promising. Note that as the cells get larger the kWh/kg number goes up at the pack level because the pack/cell weight ratio goes down.

    If your work is simply providing a 240v plug, then you'd want a 240v portable charger and potentially the ability to work with 120v. The best one, and likely the only one I'd buy, is the EVSE upgrade...

    There isn't any place to put a spare. If you were willing to sacrifice the space you could do what some have done -- buy one of those small ones and store it in the hatch. On the runflats, you likely...

    I think you're conclusion that buying would be better than leasing is right, especially if you don't need to get a new car every three years, if you're worried about the miles (I don't, however,...

    As others have mentioned if the answer to the question of whether the car was titled to someone else is "yes" then it's not eligible for the CA and Fed rebates. Maybe the dealer doesn't understand...

    Congrats on the car. It doesn't take long to figure out the car. Just a couple of tips: If you have a lot driving where you stop, using "L" will increase the regen, potentially giving you a better...

    Dropping that much elevation will truly pop the estimate for a few days! I experience it whenever I go to the mountains.

    Not much new actually. Clearly GM and Nissan will be battling it out. Nissan will likely win the battle on price, Nissan is king when it comes to making things cheap, and GM will have the better...

    One of the members here got an ELR this weekend. He didn't think he'd want the ACC but I think he's already changing his mind. There is a world of difference between cruise and adaptive cruise. They...

    The dealer may not have "done anything" but any software upgrade can break any number of things. Or the GPS may be broken. Hopefully it was the former and not the latter. If it's broken you'll know...

    Probably about the right number given when Gen 2.0 will hit most markets, which is at the end of the year. Incentives could be phased in.

    If gas prices were a big deal then we'd expect to see it...

    This is why everyone would be better served with smarter officers who had a tool other than force in their bag. Pepper spray and arrest some guy for charging his car? Seriously? Anyone with a minimal...

    She really wanted the Sonata hybrid in a special color. I just helped her find one and negotiate a decent deal.

    For the 2015 MY, you should be able to make it to work on a charge but likely not coming back unless you're an ecco driver. the elevation gain and loss = mass X gravitational constant X gain/loss. It...

    Relax. Probably it wasn't charged all the way. Also the estimate is based on recent driving history. If all you're doing is turning it on and off and not going anywhere then you could get a very low...

    The Sonata hybrid was a POS. I know this because I helped a friend buy one. She never liked it, the reason for which was obvious if you drove or rode in it. I've always felt a tad guilty but then I...

    You've sort of gone off the deep end here. The cars are not remotely in the same class. I wouldn't swap my Volt for a Fusion Energi. The ELR? Ba ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!
