Re: EVs in Everyday Life

I ran across a Bolt yesterday; the first one I've seen in the wild. We were both adjacent to the Laurel Supercharger that neither of us can use, so I'm not counting that as "Seen at a charging station." :)

A couple weeks ago, I saw my first i3 not at an EVSE, in Silver Spring. I'd just come out of a parking garage that did have an EVSE, but I don't think it came from there. (The garage itself was interesting. There were two charging spots -- one free when I got there, the other one with a Leaf taxi. But in nearby spaces, possibly waiting, were a non-taxi Leaf, and a Fiat 500, maybe a 500e.)

I saw my second Bolt in the wild today -- a white one, at the Laurel Amish Market.

(There were a bunch of Bolts at the Drive Electric Week event in Hyattsville on Saturday, which of course doesn't count, but I was kind of impressed by how many showed up.)

There was a Spark EV leaving the Amish Market next to me yesterday (different from the one above -- that one was silver, this one black). It was funny, because just moments before, an ICE Spark was entering the parking lot while I waited at the light, and I thought, "Too bad it's not an EV." And then there was one. :)

Upon arriving home from our cross-country Tesla trip, I saw more non-Tesla EVs in one brief drive to town than I did on our entire US trip. Here, I stopped by the hardware store -

That was my observation, as well. We saw more EVs between Cupertino and Sacramento than most of the rest of our trip. On that list were some that I never saw before, such as the Spark EV, e-Golf, and Soul EV. I caught a quick glimpse of an orange Roadster in San Francisco. Although they don't really count as EVs, we did see a Mirai on the way to Sacramento and an FCX Clarity at Lake Tahoe (there's hydrogen infrastructure out that way?).

The amusing sighting was the 3-4 Teslas parked at the Dentist office by the Gigafactory.

At home, the BMW i3 count is going up. Usually see one a week (although likely the same one).

Up here in Canada I don’t think I’ve never seen anything other than a Tesla or a Volt outside of a charging station.

Usually a Model S but I’ve been seeing more and more Model X lately.
