That video's a few years old. Those are imported i-MiEVs, not the NA production models. Plus, it has the usual degrading tone about range and charging that has mostly gone away recently.

I'd still like to drive Bear out there, though it'd take 2-3 weeks to do the trip :lol:.
"Bear" - 2012 Diamond White Pearl ES with QC - 2/21/2013
Solar-powered since 10/10/2013

"Koorz" - 2012 Cool Silver Metallic ES with QC - 1/5/2015

Driving electric since 2-21-2013.
3 years with the i-MiEV and loving every mile!

From Mercy Davison:

The Council Report and agreement are at http://www.normal.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/2258.

If you’d like to watch the Council meeting, which included some great testimony by the owner of Rivian, go to https://www.youtube.com/user/NormalIllinois and:

The local newspaper has covered this issue. I searched on their website and found this: http://www.pantagraph.com/search/?l=25& ... a=eedition

Enjoy!

A car company that only talks about "mobility" is an immediate fail based on an overused buzz word.
You already know what they are hocking by the single word "mobility".

At best it will linger a few years sucking up reservations creating nothing.

Our only hope is they can the mobility crap and MAKE something that would fill an unserved segment of the market, the low end is really ignored for example, but would anyone buy nearer the Elio type of cheap?
