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...

No. It will not.

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...

$3400 from evseadapters.com. ($4000 for the dual-standard version, if you want to future-proof.)

Re: Electric Car Review Talking Points

Related: When looking at used EVs on cars.com, etc., the number one thing I want to know (for models where it varies) is: Does it have DCFC? How often this is answered in the ad: approximately 0% of the time. Instead, the listings are full of copy enumerating such amazing and unexpected features as ...

Re: My JuiceBox has gone wonky

It doesn't use Bluetooth. The EVSE connects to wifi, and communicates with the app over the public Internet. (!) You can also use their web site. I won't be surprised if it comes back up after I restart it, but I'll be surprised if it stays connected long, at this point. (I'm leaving it off for now....

My JuiceBox has gone wonky

The charge before last, the graph (as seen in the apps, on iOS and Android) abruptly dropped off after a few minutes, but the charge completely normally, AFAICT (almost a full charge, over five hours). Then, last night, I fully charged the car, and it never showed up in the apps at all -- in fact, t...
