      Let's just say he is less black/white about these things as I am. Besides, they have made significant quality improvements on the car since 2014/2015 so it should be dead reliable. He has two Corollas now, so that is where he is used too.

      But yeah, I see what you're sayin

      Not sure how to say this, but we needed a "reliable" 2nd car that could do my commute in a pinch, all the while not paying through the nose for it.

      Sooo, this is what turned up ... again!

      18 months old with hardly any miles on it, 5500 of them to be reasonably exact. It simply is the best price/range/capacity option out there.

      Tomorrow be road trip time as it is a couple of hundred miles from here.

      Road trip pics from yesterday.

      Traveled from Sarpsborg to Moss by i3 (almost free), Moss to Horten by ferry (free), and Horten to Krisitansand by Opel Vectra (holy **** gas is expensive!)

      Good start, the sun is breaking through!


      Only interrupted by a short stint of foggy mcfog face


      On the other side, the sun had completely broken through though. Let's see if you can name the white car in the very lower left corner.


      It was a good day from here on. I like vivid colors.


      ...
      FWD 4hours in an Opel Vectra
      ...

      And here she is! Bought sight unseen, so I was very pleasantly surprised to meet an owner, that not only was a car dealer, but was very particular about his cars (although it was really hers this one). Was even undercoated, my biggest gripe about the one we had earlier, that it wasn't.


      91% SOC, and 111km to the first planned quick charge. Should work, but I had hoped it would have 100% when I picked it up. No matter, it will make it.






      First stop, dropped from 91% to 22% SOC over 111km. Pretty much as expected.


      Cranking it up to 82% for the following 96km leg. Noticed a mint W113 and Datsun Lauren in the background. Driven by youngsters up to noo good I'm sure.


      Getting there, 23min. later it had reached it's 82% goal.


      A bit messy.


      Reached the next destination wit 21% SOC, resulting in almost exactly the same average consumption as the leg before, 16.8kWh/100km.


      Third leg was a mere 35km to the ferry, then another 35km on the other side.

      (shared) First place!!!


      Anyways, here she is on home turf. Long distance in an EV is no sweat if quick chargers are at hand, and you can spare the odd 25minutes.

      17 Volt LT (non premium) lessee here. Love it! Kind of wish I got a premium however. The cloth seats are definitely not the most comfortable.

      Didn't even know this was on here. I'm in.

      2012 Volt Premium - bought with 80k on the clock @ $10k OTD. Didn't even know these were such a bargain on the used market.

      After the 35% tint was installed.

      So far my best full charge drive to work:

      I can usually charge to full at the 110v at the office if I don't go anywhere during the day. It has been ridiculous fun. Been tweaking the driving for the best MPG(e?) possible, and using Sport mode on days where I just don't care about those numbers.

      Pulling away from anything at the light hasn't gotten boring yet at all.

      Miles Per Tank of Gas 824.45 Miles 0.00 3/22/2017 - 4/3/2017 (I like these numbers when I hear about range anxiety)
      A loving welcome from TCL

      Congratulations! I like that color.

      I'm actually thinking about going back to BMW i3 too. Local dealership has a used 2015 i3 Rex for sale with about 13k miles on it.
      It's certified, so I might buy this one at $23,000 plus TT&L...

      Crap, I didn't see this thread for some reason. I leased a 2017 Audi A3 E-tron for my wife at the end of December last year. She has a 14 mile round-trip commute to her school and back, and they have a charging station there that allows her to plug in and start the car remotely and cool it off when she leaves. She really likes it and if you keep your foot out of it and use the dynamic mode, it can go for about 35 miles on a charge. We have two 220v outlets in my garage so it works out perfectly for her.

      No pictures of it hosted anywhere, but it looks like this.

      Just out of curiosity, is she charging everyday to get that 35 miles EV range?

      Nissan Leaf seems underrepresented! This 2016 will soon be joining the stable.

      It's perfect for my 12-mile round-trip commute, and there are 3 free 240V chargers in my parking garage at work.

      Forgive a bit of my ignorance to the later Leafs...Leaves?

      Do they still have battery degradation issues, or has Nissan changed something in the battery/climate control of the battery to combat it?

      Yep. She comes home at night and plugs the car in. We have it set up on the app to start charging at 1:00 AM-5:00 AM every day to charge it while we sleep and during the cheapest hours. She has about 4,200 miles on the car right now and has spent about $80 in gas the entire time.

      Forgot about this thread. Assumed someone lease for a steal! So far I have been loving this car. Feels like what I imagined the future to be like instead of a regular sedan with a electric drivetrain.

      Joined the party with my short commute and loving it. If you have a short commute and have a second vehicle for longer trips, an EV makes a lot of sense.

      Went for the full fat SEL with drivers assistance (lease).

      They redesigned the battery again for 2016, and in my limited research I haven't seen much about 2014/15/16 batteries suffering the same degradation issues as the pre-2013 refresh (non-Lizard) batteries.

      Just found this thread

      Leased a 2014 Fiat 500e back in April 2014 and returned that a month early to take advantage of a $49/month deal for another 500e. Free changing at work and some weekend charging at home using 110V for the last 3+ years not a problem at all. Only items need to pay for the 3 years of ownership is tires and not a single problem for that car as well. It's the most reliable car I had ever.

      Been getting 90miles of range constantly with mostly stop and go traffic in SoCal and some 75mph freeway speed with AC on. If it has another 30/40 miles extra range it will be a perfect car.
