Re: Hyundai Kona EV

For me, the center console buttress is a deal breaker. I doubt very much that I would fit comfortably.

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

So far, this is pretty similar to our e-Golf and LEAF. Since EV's don't have excess heat, we tend to not run the defroster when we don't have to, obviously. The LEAF has a deeper trough, and the e-Golf has a more closed trough.

Re: Future of the Dealership EV Model

Something needs to change, that is for sure. How many people buy a car (ICE or otherwise) and then have it serviced at a local shop?

This is a new concept? It looks very similar to a concept from several years ago. I do like it!

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

We just got our Bolt EV about 2 weeks ago. In general, it is wonderful. Two EV-centric niggles: no light in the charging port, and no coasting in D. We are a tall family, and we fit in the Bolt EV better than any other car (let alone any other EV!), so there's that. It is the longest range EV that w...

Re: Used 12 SE Premium or Used 14?

You can add a backup camera for reasonable money - the camera is powered up when the backup lights come on, and some are wirelessly connected to the monitor.
