I like this car's look and like its respect for the environment. Hopefully tho it won't have this problem: https://chimicles.com/hyundai-automobil ... n-lawsuit/

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 park it outside...

Then, on the way back home, my miles ran down a little faster than I expected, and I turtled for the first time. I did end up getting home OK. But as I contemplated having to stop at the side of the road and abandon my car, I realized there'd probably be no choice but to have it towed if it ran out of power. But, if I had a Sion, I could just leave it for a day, come back, and likely be able to drive it home.

This is why it annoys me to see the solar panels dismissed as a gimmick. "You can charge it faster from a 120V outlet." Yes, and...? How many people, in how many situations, don't even have that?

The amount I drive, I might never have to charge it. Let it sun for three or four days, and you could even take it a hundred miles. I want one. :)

10,000 pre-orders? Hope it's enough to keep them going...
