Your not wrong. $1250 was the Gen 1 price in April 2016. They also ran a Spring special that month that took an additional $300 off that price. I locked in at the $950 price before I bought my CPO 2013 premier ( I hadn't taken the test drive yet, but was scheduled at a dealer). It was the end of the month and the sale price was ending before my test drive. I talked with the Rep at plugless and told her the situation. She told me I could place the order and they would hold the order with a CC number (not charging it) until I contacted them with the out come of my test drive. After I took my test drive and committed to buying the car. I contacted plugless and gave them the go ahead with the plugless purchase. Only after I placed the plugless order did I find out I was on a waiting list with a 2 month backlog. I didn't mind because it gave me the time to figure out the electric installation at my home. At about the time I was scheduled to receive my unit. I was contacted by Eric B. Customer rep. He told me they were having production delays that were taking longer to work through than they had planned for. He Said, I was number 2 inline for the next unit deliveries. I didn't mind, because I was not ready for it on my end. An additional 2 months went by with email status updates every few weeks with progress reports. After 4 months from the order date, I finally got the email I had been waiting for. It's Ready to Ship!

He took the time to show me how the system was well made and Plug n play. He told me that the folks at plugless were excellent to work with when he had any technical installation questions. The adapter install took about 4 hours in total ( about 45 minutes of that was spent fixing a snapped stud in the car. He told me that might happen based on previous installations he had done. He can thank midwest salt roads for that one.
Anyway it still took me an additional month before I was ready on my end with the electrical circuit work finished in my garage. I've been happily Charging On! The past 4 months.
One other thing I'm taking advantage of is a fed tax credit extension = to 30% of EVSE equipment purchase price. That's an additional $285 off of the $950. Bringing my cost down to $665.
That makes me a Very Happy Plugless owner.
I checked out the latest plugless pricing and was shocked to see the $1,419.00 price hike. They are also marketing the product differently than before. It's now being marketed as a PREMIUM Charging system. With a Premium price. I love my system, but if I were faced with that price point. There is no way I could justify it, yes I can afford it. So Yeah, it's Cool and convenient, but not $2669 cool and convenient.
Here's hoping future customers will be offered a significant Spring special discount.
For those that have a problem with the energy efficiency loss. I waste way more money on my monthly cable, internet, and cell phone bill. I'm not worrying about the cost of a cup of Starbucks in Efficiency loss. Plus I don't deplete the battery every day during normal usage.
Most of the time I'm partial charging.
