EVs in Everyday Life

Thu Aug 11, 2016 12:37 pm

New thread for showing off two or more EVs in one photograph in a conventional everyday parking lot or setting, excluding EV events or EV charging stations. Last week I had a Tesla S in front of my i-MiEV, a Leaf next to me, the Tesla X behind it, but the Fiat 500e got away before I could snap the picture, thus only four EVs. This is a horribly-tight parking lot into which I would never take my Tesla.

I was originally going to make this a competition, but for now let's see what going on around the world...

I don't think anyone is going to top that :lol: .

Best I have right now is the one day I parked next to a BMW i3 at Red Robin.

"Trader Joes" - appropriate :-)
No photo, but when I flew to Schipol Airport (in the Netehrlands, outskirts of Amsterdam) earlier this year I was shocked (deliberate) to see an almost endless stream of Tesla Model S taxis - they outnumbered the Merc's and Audis by 10 to 1 at least.

I tried by sending an email to the Mitsubishi dealer in Russia. Never heard back from them. (See the Russia topic).

Aw, since I was part of the record-breaking Guinness World Record EV rally, I could have posted a photo of >500 BEVs - but this topic's purpose is for everyday life connections of our i-MiEV with other EVs in everyday situations. :|

Even though I have recommended the Volt to a number of single-car owners and we have at least two esteemed members of this forum who own them, (I just deleted what I thought would be an attempt at environmental humor vilifying fossil fuels :mrgreen: ), I'll let you - the members - decide whether the Volt and i3 REx should be included in this thread. I haven't been following PHEVs - are there any others with decent all-electric range and speed?

I guess I'll vote ..........."YES" Volt's do count! A Volt is technically a PHEV, but it's possible that a Volt can function as an EV for extended periods of time, if the owner has a short commute and charges up every day. Of course I have a gen1 Volt which is rated for 35 miles EV driving, the gen2 Volt is rated at 53 miles.
