He refers to extended range (larger battery?) in the video -- and says it's one of only six (!) units with this capability. I hadn't heard of that previously.

This turns out to be more or less reproducible. I didn't realize it at first, but the outgoing trip is about 95% uphill.

Guess-o-meter

I don't usually have an issue with the range remaining display*, but it did a couple of amusing things yesterday: 1. On a four-mile trip, I lost ten estimated miles (rather than 8) on the round trip... OK, whatever. But I lost 8 of those on the way out, and only 2 on the way back (same path). 2. One...

I'd ask why the sales turned down, but I'm even more puzzled that the registrations stopped tracking the sales. People buying out of state?

Re: Sono Sion

As I was out driving today, I was looking at an apartment building, thinking how it would be to live there... but where would I charge? I hope that someday soon, apartment buildings will all have EV infrastructure, but they're mostly not there now. But, I thought, if I had a Sion, I'd just have to p...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

The infamous charging 'timeout' happens very soon after plugging in and continues for 10-45 minutes. ... Can anyone else confirm this issue with ChargePoint? AFAIK, this is down to the car. I don't know why it does it. But it's not specific to ChargePoint. I see the same thing at home with my Juice...

Re: dead charger

Hey Joe, yeah $6300 is way more than i thought i'd ever spend but, to replace that car would be 30 to 40 grand. What? No. It's $5K-$10K for a used i-MiEV on cars.com (but you might have to ship it), with one outlier at $15K. Or you might be able to get a used Leaf in the same range locally (there a...
