Re: On Order!!!!

Re: On Order!!!!

If you have a fair weather day, where you don't have to use the hvac, and you can keep the speeds 50 mph and below, I bet you will be able to 90-100 miles on a charge no problem.

The $1,182 includes an $800.00 deposit so the cost of the upgrade plus shipping is $382.00. Not bad for a Level 2 charger. Do remember these are somewhat underpowered 3.84kW and 16 amps, but...
