    Interesting. Thanks for posting. I was assuming we'd get a reveal at the Detroit show though LA is the "green car" showcase and I suspect it would get more press at that show. They could invite CARB!...

    This is a big deal to me. Glad to see how well the Volt did.

    I think the confusion comes from multiple tests. I think the Mini did better than the Volt in some but overall and in this difficult...

    If you only have one car then the Volt is more or less the only answer unless you're willing to rent cars, and that's not as simple or as appealing as some would suggest. If you have access to an ICE...

    Yes the Spark and Sonic are both built on the Gamma Global. But I think the first cars to use the new Gamma Global (G2XX) show up in 2017. There was the whole Peugeot platform sharing idea but that...

    With all due respect, unless you're buying a super high end model, the only reason anyone has to buy an MB is the logo. My joke is the only people who buy an MB are the over 60 set, Asians not born...

    Seems pricey. I did a build and ended up at $50,645. You can get a Leaf with roughly the same range and with similar equipment for $36,000. You do give up that huge honking logo but you probably get...

    I think of it more from a platform standpoint than a car standpoint. The Sonic sits on a fairly old platform which is in its final years. The replacement shows up in 2018. An electric Sonic would...

    I haven't seen it. I have, however, seen it when DC charging the Leaf. In that case charging was much faster in the middle of the SOC.

    This seems like yet another story based on the only actual story reported by The Truth About Cars. That means we have exactly one story from a web site that isn't always accurate. That said, we have...

    It's way better than the Leaf but even with the Leaf, as time goes on, you'll stop noticing it. You'll have a good idea of how far you can go and won't bother too much with the estimator.

    Congrats on the car. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Hopefully you'll get the charging part worked out in short order. Should be a simple deal.

    One benefit, if you can call it that, of congested...

    Yes but it could be the part not the assembly. The Chevy Cruze isn't on the list.

    Best to do it now given the deals and that you can use the tax credit. Since on principle I'm reluctant to agree with Elemental I'll say that it's better to start the savings (and fun) sooner. LOL My...

    Trying to have a serious debate with Elemental is like trying to have a serious debate with Steven Colbert. Not going to work. If you approach it knowing that you'll have more fun.

    There is a lot of variation depending on a half dozen variable, but your bottom line seems in line with what I'd expect.

    Since the standard for batteries is that they reach EOL (end of life) when they lose 20% of capacity that would have to be usable. Also note the manual says "up to". This strikes me as CYA language....

    Congrats on the car. I've not really followed the Saks version but $20K off seems like a decent price.

    Maybe you don't want to go faster. Statik had an interesting article over at INSIDEEVS.COM where he suggested all the drive train failures -- a $10,000 repair -- in the Tesla Model S were due to...

    Shouldn't be any different. Maybe a bit better because the depreciation has been lower than average.

    Leases are structured so that the first half of the payments are less than the expected...
