Re: On the state of the affordable long-range electric car

Re: On the state of the affordable long-range electric car

Don't forget about Kia and Hyundai. *IF* they follow through with their announcements, both (well, they are the same company, like Buick and Chevy) will be introducing 200+ mile BEVs at some point over the next 6-18 months (Niro and Kona) - as well as an approx 180-mile Kia Soul. In 2019, there shou...

Re: Do not use EVgo fast chargers. No, seriously. Just don't.

I guess that I wasn't clear enough : No self-identified "EVgo Rep" has ever stuck her/his head on this forum, in any thread.

(Unlike ChargePoint, which has a rather visible and interactive presence on the forum.)

Re: Rodent Access to engine compartment

Many mammals (including rats) hate spices - especially HOT spices (like Tabasco or cayenne pepper or Chili pepper flakes). Under a car hood and on wires, dabbing some tabasco here and there twice a month could help deter. Try it and report back!

Re: On the state of the affordable long-range electric car

I have a great need for an electric truck. Ohio-based Workhorse has announced a plug-in hybrid electric pickup truck. up to 80 miles on all-electric mode, 60 kWh battery pack, AND also useful to power tools on location for constructions workers and other hobbyists – with a 7.2 kW power system that ...

Re: Do not use EVgo fast chargers. No, seriously. Just don't.

I would also appreciate some additional detail. When ChargePoint 'forum user' says "all ChargePoint DCFC stations on I-5", does that mean all the stations in the CEC plan, from Yreka in the North (near the Oregon border) down to Santa Clarita in the south? If so, there appear to be 16 new ...

No self-identified "EVgo Rep" has ever stuck her/his head in here.

I would suggest asking via plugshare app (leave a comment).

Re: Bolt keeps honking at me...

Last night I started using the auto-lock feature, so here's to hoping it will stop all the honking. There's an autolock feature? Where do I set that up? Page 42 (Delayed Locking) and Page 144 (Vehicle Personalization / Power Door Locks : Delayed Door Lock ) Page 35 (Passive Locking) and Page 145 (V...

Re: Bolt keeps honking at me...

If EVs and ICEs were equally dangerous to pedestrians, then about five people a year in the US would be killed by EVs. NHTSA’s report above claims a quiet EV is 1.18 times as dangerous to pedestrians and 1.5 times as dangerous to bicyclists. That suggests PWS will save about one to two people per y...
