first speeding citation in history

was for an electric car. It was a taxi in NYC. He was going 12 MPH in his electric car, where the speed limit was 8 MPH. The police officer was riding a bicycle.

Another first for electric vehicles!

This is according to the Today in History column in today's (May20) Monroe MI News.

Re: What "other" BEVs are for sale in Ohio?

FWIW: I did an inventory search for both the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Bolt. Turns out that the Toledo-area dealers seem to have some in stock: At least 3 Toledo Chevy dealers show a Bolt, all of the LT trim level, and the Leaf is available in Toledo and Ann Arbor. The AA dealer has always had sever...

Re: What "other" BEVs are for sale in Ohio?

Even the Bolt has availability issues. One guy in Frackville, PA on another forum says the Chevy dealer he'd been going to for over 32 years doesn't have any Bolts. When he asked a few years ago, he was apparently the 1st to ask. I asked him in Sept 2018 about whether there's been any change at tha...

What "other" BEVs are for sale in Ohio?

The question is in the title. A friend (who is convinced that EVs are absolutely not for him) seems to think that BEVs are available from the major auto manufacturers "anywhere". I'm thinking that compliance cars are sold in California and a few other places, but not in Flyover Country. I ...

Re: DCQC charging rates

Thanks for the info!

FWIW: I didn't notice the brand of charger, but it looked about the size of your first picture, but was horizontal oriented; IE: long dimension horizontal. It has a small window with a readout that tells you what is going on during the handshake phase, etc.

Nice pics!!

DCQC charging rates

What are the typical rates of DC quick chargers? Seems like I've seen numbers as high as (at least) 55 KW. My Clipper Creek gives me 7.7 KW, so that's kind of my baseline. I charged at a Chevy dealer today, just to see how they operate, and sat in the car, listening to the radio while charging. With...

Re: Set time zone on clock?

FWIW: my '17 Bolt changes from Standard to DST and back with no intervention from me. However! It doesn't seem to do it immediately, dunno if it takes multiple "starts" or just a time delay. My cell phone was not connected via a cable, but was in my pocket, and I don't have a subscription ...

XM not working, AM is OK

Yesterday, I got in the car and when the radio booted up, attempted to select XM (radio had been on AM). The "Sirius XM" displayed, along with the channel name and the name of the current selection, but just momentarily, then "No Signal". I could return to AM, but when again sele...

Re: Teslas charged w/diesel generators

The biggest point to me is that there are so many unsold M3s sitting on the lots. It seems to me that the "maintenance" charging could be done with the [included] 120 volt charging cable and some extension cords. When 'our' Chevy Bolts are selling at less than 2000/month, I don't see where...
