Re: Nissan Attempts End Run On Quick Charge

Given that the LEAF is the only car sold today that even has a quick charge (QC) capability and there have been complaints that there aren't enough QC chargers, it seems in Nissan's best interest to...

Re: Utility Issues Fire Warning to EV owners

Point taken. Clearly my facetious summary of Mr. Modica's content has clouded the intended message.

Whether he is liberal or conservative, it is clap trap as his facts are wrong or, at the very...

Re: Utility Issues Fire Warning to EV owners

Wow. Did you read any other articles on this site? Complete Fascist Conservative clap trap. These guys definitely have an axe to grind when it comes to EV's as they are "patently dangerous" and "a...

Re: LEAF Capacity Is Only 20-21kWh

Actually if you read the entire blog there is some contention as to whether the capacity is 21 or 24kWh.

If one reads the battery performance related LEAF blog threads, there is a wide discrepancy...

Re: As Usual, Ford Doles Out Info Sparingly

Charged Up said:


I think for those very reasons that the 80mi that Mulally cited was comparable to the 100mi used by Nissan. Even with less air drag and a more efficient drivetrain, it would be...

Re: Guess the price announcement date

Doesn't look like Ford plans on saying anything too soon.

If you scroll towards the bottom of this Hybrid Cars article on the LEAF...

Re: Monthly OnStar Report for June 2011

Charged Up said

Well maybe it is a unit issue. 12.5kW/40mi would be 312.5Wh/mi (31kWh/100mi) if the 12.5 was kWh.
10k to 13k per 40mi is 250-325Wh/mi which is trending better than the LEAF...

Re: Monthly OnStar Report for June 2011

Hmmm

I am a little suspicious of our 27kWh/100mi number. Is that from the actual meter reading to charge the battery or just what OnStar says? The LEAF forums put the charge at 24kWh to get...

Re: Plan On Charging Four Times A Day?

Looking at the article they are in fact counting plug-in & disconnect as separate events.

Still I would think that most owners only need to charge once a day (which is twice by this article's...

Re: Dominion Power EV Rate Hearing

Charged Up suggested that Dominion Power:



I think this is a very bad idea. The whole point behind time of use rates is to encourage power consumption when the network can best handle it and...

Re: Driving the 2012 Focus

ChargedUp said:



Since there were several comparisons to the Volt earlier, am I correct to assume you mean "the backseats of the Volt felt roomier than in the Focus"?

Re: AutoNation Expects E Focus MSRP $30k Before Tax Credit

According to the e-mail I received:



Anyone who has been reading the Nissan LEAF forum knows that this is a pipe dream. I am thinking at least 6-7 mos.

Re: AutoNation Expects E Focus MSRP $30k Before Tax Credit

The price for the CW package was only available on the order link which I received in an e-mail.

The package was not an add-on, but a different trim, e.g. SL-CW. I selected that, then added...

Re: Need Another Reason to Buy an EV?

Unfortunately the HOV status has never applied for Hybrids and won't for EVs in Oregon. As it is, there aren't too many HOV lanes on the Oregon highways, but almost all of the on ramps have an HOV...

Re: Get LEAF Now or Wait for Focus Electric

Re: Zero CO2

OK. If you think reducing CO2 generation will starve the plants, you're not going to be convinced to buy an electric car to reduce greenhouse gases, but there are plenty of other reasons to buy an...
