Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

Crazy. And it's sad that, as a whole, we're nowhere near even starting to tackle the problem. Iceland did just get a carbon capture plant up and running, but on the stats provided, they could've provided a $10,000 incentive for about 1,200 EVs for the same cost. With how clean Iceland's power grid i...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

So, if anyone even knows about this, the LG batteries used by Chevy and Hyundai have two manufacturing defects in them, that (apparently) when both are in the same cell, the cell can internally short out and cause a thermal runaway event after charging. Originally, the recall only affected 2017-earl...

Re: VW ID.4 EV

Stopped and took a quick look at one this morning. It was already sold, so I couldn't sit in it, but it's a decently-sized vehicle with a nice looking interior. A little over $41,000 for a Pro model (RWD) with 260 mile range. Looks like they can even option up and get AWD and towing capability. Bein...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Electrify America has already announced that they will be discontinuing CHAdeMO support, thus screwing us i-MiEV, Leaf, and Kia Soul owners. That's not right. When is someone going to make a CCS-CHAdeMO adapter? OTOH, my 600-mile round-trip to Lake Tahoe from the SF Bay Area in my i-MiEV was comple...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

PSA. If you live in an area with wild rodents, it might be a good idea to ensure you either turn off the HVAC system or leave the recirculator enabled when you park your Bolt. I left my Bolt parked for 2 weeks and apparently the recirculator was open, as a mouse made his way in, soiled, and chewed u...

First Real Maintenance

Well, it finally happened. Koorz needed some TLC outside of the usual. I had to replace the front brake pads. It sucked that nobody stocked the pads, but I was able to get them fairly quickly through Napa, and changing them was really easy. I'm guessing that the previous owner didn't keep the car in...

Re: Floormats and heat dissipation

All the vents are under the dash. Should be no problem.

Re: Aptera is Back

Solar is in the roof, rear edge, and dashboard. In the rear corners above the tail lights, those three squares on each side are cells. The ones on the roof blended into the black paint. The one picture looks like there is a license plate. The way the article is written makes it sound like they drove...

Re: Aptera is Back

2nd Prototype built and rolling. Looking good in white, which is the color I selected in my reservation. Just hope the color scheme applies to the nose on the production versions.
