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.
