Re: Charging At Home

Yes, "capable of". there is wording "with additional equipment". The supplied charge cord doe NOT provide that much current.

Re: Charging At Home

Buying a 2022 EUV soon. I have a 30 amp 220 VC outlet in place (unused electric dryer outlet). What happens if I plug in the 40 charger that comes with the car? The circuit is protected by 30 amp breakers. It will take me awhile to arrange for a 40 amp 220 V plug. Thanks Caveat : I do NOT have an &...

Re: free charging at Electrify America

I used 4 differnet EA sites (since it was free, I basically used the occasion to try 4 different EA sites near major highway & interstate junctions, so that I know where the sites actually are, and to check that there are no charging problems). I did a "SF East Bay tour" driving north ...

It's still cheaper than gas (unless you are getting 70 mpg)

Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

Yup. I didn't notice. The price I posted was "potential savings" (the default) and not "purchase price" ($38500). Sneaky bastards.

Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

I went to the tesla.com web site, and clicked "order now". That was the price that popped up. It might be because I live in CA and maybe there is a discount / rebate from the state that is automatically applied.

At any rate, FAR from the $65k someone stated.

Re: VINDICATED: Finally - GM to launch updated vehicle navigation system

I can buy a new phone for less than the GPS option cost in most new cars, AND get free map updates on the phone. Why would I want to buy GPS software for the car when my phone can send map info to the display screen in the car? It is the 21st century.

Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

Please let us know the financial details of your Tesla 3 purchase, and how much was "stripped down" from its $65K model to make it financially satisfactory to you. He did say "Tesla Model 3", not "model S". I just checked, and the "standard range plus" model ...

Re: My experience with the Grizzl-e EVSE that we bought

I seems to recall that several years ago Enel bought the very small eMotorWerks, (maker of JuiceBox). The experience might not be the same these days, since a multi-national and a small local business just don't run the same way.
