Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

I'll have ended up paying $17,000 in "rent" , oh plus the $2500 I put down, and my residual is $25K, which adds up to MSRP, like magic! So where the fuck did my $7500 federal rebate go?!?!?!??!? Oh that's right, The lease company ate it, which is what they do. . That is the way leases ARE...

Re: charging cable for sale

Good luck getting $350.

Anyone can buy a 120V/240V (both), 16 amp charging cable for about $200, which will charge faster than the one shipped with the Bolt.

Re: Safety issues

From a general safety standpoint you should have your brake covered when stopped anyhow. Obviously, this will turn the lights on. Why? I enjoy the habit of "one foot driving" that I have developed with my Bolt EV (so much so that I have to remember to train myself the opposite way when no...

Yeah, buy a used Bolt. Hasn't somebody already talked about that? Isn't there a thread for that?

Oh, yeah, THIS one!

Re: EVgo DC FC pricing changes coming Feb 12, 2019

I am very aggravated by EA's connection fee, and I don't understand why we should pay a buck just for the privilege of plugging the car in. OK, I'll explain it to you: Credit card fee . Credit Card companies charge businesses for "the privilege" of accepting client payment using their net...

Re: Help me understand how regen works

If I remember my high school physics from a few years ago, the generation of electricity when "running a motor backwards" is the opposite of "running the motor forwards". By that, I mean that to accelerate (increase torque) using the motor one increases the current flowing in the...

Re: How much will my battery degrade after two years of charging to 100% almost every night?

This proves that my decision to charge to 100% most every night has been vindicated. No, it means you managed to drive 264.1 miles one day. Nothing more, nothing less. Maybe the exact same drive on a similar day (same route, temp, rain/cler, humidity, wind speed and direction, etc.) when the car wa...
