Re: Need a longer range ev

A local dealer has a 2013 Volt with 75k miles for $10,300. My co-worker has a relative that works there so I'm going to see if there is any friends of family discounts ;) I made the mistake of buying the MIEV without the remote FOB. Other than the car key fobs, is there any extra pieces I need to ma...

Re: Need a longer range ev

I'm leaning Bolt. May end up going Volt unless I can get a decent deal on a Bolt. I just bought a neat little cedar challet that will be my retirement place. That's why the need for 100 mile range. Once I recover financially from the closing I will make a decision on the car. Maybe end of year if th...

Re: Need a longer range ev

Just checked, it's an LT trim. $34,755 msrp, sale price $28,688 with employee discount and $1500 for existing lease. The only options are comfort package and interior protection package

I need to learn more about the model options. But that looks Iike a very good price.

Re: Need a longer range ev

Sounds like a newer Volt is my best bet. There is a 2018 at a local dealer for just over $30K. That's for employee discount with a current lease. I can get employee discount through my brother in law but don't have a gm lease. Not sure the trim level for that either. But with the federal rebate it w...

Re: Need a longer range ev

Thanks for the responses. I think I can rule out the I3 based on the heater setup. The only public charge stations on my 100 mile route are within 30 miles of my house. So I would need to go end to end without charging. A decent hybrid would be fine for the long trip as long as I can go 30+ mile on ...

Morning timed charge to warm battery

Now that it's starting to get cold here in the northern Midwest, I put the level 1 charger on a timer to prewarm the pack before driving. I don't really need the charge as I top up at work. I also run a small space heater to pre warm the cabin. What would be the recommended charge time to warm the p...

26 17 on the rear
20 18 on the front

They do look like they will be loud. I do need good snow tires.
