Yeah, you'd think so, but last I heard, EVgo had yet to turn a profit.

Blue Bolt at the grocery store today (the same store that often has a Leaf, though not this time). Just by chance, I parked across from it and one space over.

Re: EVs in Everyday Life

I passed an i3 going the other way this morning, as I took my i-MiEV into the local Mitsubishi dealer, to finally get my recalls done. (Apparently they were done with no problem, it passed the free inspection, and I paid nothing.)

Superchargers are locked down. Regular wall chargers (or whatever they call them) are just J1772 devices with a different pinout.

Re: Want one, but cautious. Opinions please.

May not have a choice in color, but ideally would want a red one, as I've read they have been proven to be faster than the others... I don't think the i-MiEV comes in red? The only colors I've seen are white, black, silver, purple, blue, and blue/white. I hope you hit up a Smart forum for advice as...

That's the one noise it makes in the videos -- squealing tires. They may not hold up long.

Re: 2nd Gen Tesla Roadster

Ten times the range of my i-MiEV, and about ten times its (new) price. So that checks out. ;)
