    If you're in California you get the rebate on the lease as well as the purchase. So that drops your monthly by $42/month. Also the factory rebate should also be available on the lease since they're...

    Yes, very good.

    Yes, very good.

    It would need to be more than an adapter. The Tesla chargers validate by using the VIN of the car, which means the car would have to have the protocol implemented. You'd also need communication to...

    First, while GM will sell the Bold nationwide, don't think it's aimed at a national audience. The Bolt is designed for ZEV states. Sales from other states are just gravy.

    Second, there will be...

    Ouch! Note from BMW to BMW: vet the journalists more for driving skill.

    Sounds good to me. The sooner the better. But I suspect the timetable is likely shifting by a month or so, not a lot more than that. The good news is that they're not having any last minute issues...

    People looking to buy cheaper cars usually are extremely price sensitive. A hybrid version will be more expensive. That's likely why there are very few hybrids in this price range.

    This was the botched introduction that killed the car. Since no one actually could drive the car, everyone looked at the spec sheet and concluded the ELR was a Volt with a nicer interior. The...

    There are a number of problems with what you're saying. The big one is that you're complaining about what has happened over five years so let's look at five years and not one year.

    Looking at...

    Makes my point that she's not rational. One percent of the population has a gluten intolerance. Maybe ten percent are gluten sensitive, which means if they eat a ton of things with gluten they may...

    I have a friend who did it. He stayed in the right lane and had every Civic and Fit in the world zoom past. However, that was a few years ago. There may be more chargers along the way now. But it...

    It's human nature to worry about small new risks and to discount much larger existing risks. You just get habituated. That's very well documented in the the branch of economics that studies...

    There is more going on than you're recognizing and I'm not sure they have increased the "buffer" you're seemingly referring to. There are actually two buffers. There is the SOC operating window....

    Personally I just got an ELR so I'm not in the market for another car, but I think it looks great, much better than Gen 1. I haven't seen a Cruze in person so I can't comment on whether it looks like...

    You have the right document. Just search on this definition and you'll get plenty of hits in technical and scientific articles: "A vehicle that functions as full-performance battery electric vehicle...

    Because SAE has defined EREV, going forward companies will only be able to say a vehicle is an EREV if in fact it fits the definition. Whether that matters to you is up to you. But for legal purposes...

    I've never had a car get to 100K miles without several major repairs. This seems pretty trivial. My Volt has been perfect, I've never had a problem with anything, but I did get an extended service...

    It's not a full electric since it has an engine. I'm almost certain the motor and battery can't provide full performance, which would rule out it being an EREV. That would make it hybrid, albeit a...

    Likely the fob battery. I replace mine every two or three years. The only puzzle is why the key in the dash didn't work.

    I liked the write up about the driving experience. Electrics may be quick but they never feel nimble, likely because all that weight. Even the Model S never feels nimble and it has awesome...
