Re: CT - Lease advice appreciated

People in other states should not compare to the deals that can (sometimes) be had in California. GM bends over backwards to sell in CA, to get CARB credits. It's also a much easier sell for the dealer (because of the existing infrastructure - over 40% of U.S. public charge stations are in CA).

Re: Dan Neil on the Prius Prime

The Prime is a better car to drive on longer trips than the Volt, and the Volt is better for trips within its AER. The Prius has a more comfortable interior, with more interior space and much better visibility. The Volt performs much better. If you want the 'EV experience' the Volt is the better ca...

Re: "Full" battery levels dropping daily

You are right. The graph shows 49% of my energy goes to climate. I have been warming my car up in the garage before go out in 5 degreeF. Not good. Will work on some different habits and see if I can improve on this baseline for Michigan winter driving. Plug your vehicle into 240V (24Amp or higher) ...

Re: 2018 Honda Clarity : BEV, PHEV, and fuel cell

DucR - the image doesn't show up for me. The problem with the linked sites is that it : - shows "electricity + gas" for PHEVs and I want to know what the gas engine produces all by itself, as if I were driving at 60 mph on the freeway and using just the gas engine. - shows "greenhouse...

Re: 6 Weeks & Tire Failed--Is It Covered?

Yes, that's I what I'm saying. Tire (rubber) and wheel (metal), assembled and inflated to normal pressure fit fine underneath the false floor that lies more-or-less flush with the folded rear seats. If a full size spare tire is in there, will the cargo area carpet be flat below the false floor (or ...

Re: New Mobility World in Frankfurt

There isn't a lot of info on the unit about this (or maybe I just missed it), but I would *hope* that if one has a station with (say) 4 charge spots, and a max output of (say) 300 kW that if 4 cars are connected that could charge at a max rate of 100kW, that as each vehicle ramped down their chargi...
