Re: What’s up M3F… bought a CF monocoque to ruin with a baby

Our distribution is a fixed $9.97 per month-- so the i3 didn't increase it.

I suspect your parents house is in PPL's territory? Whereas I am in PECO's.

Re: What’s up M3F… bought a CF monocoque to ruin with a baby

Our electric rate is $0.067/kwh. The 2017 i3 has a usable capacity of ~28kwh, so a full charge (0-100%) is ~$1.85. So, it costs ~1.4 cents per mile to drive. Or, $1.40 for my daily ~100 mile work...

Best handling front wheel drive car ever made, back in the era when Honda made awesome NA engines, and only ~300 of them in the USA. Doesn't seem out of the realm of expected to me.

Re: Why is the ePorsche carrying the Turbo name?

FWIW, one app (plug share) has all the charging options. The nav systems in the cars do, too, if you're in the free trial period or paying for a data plan for your car.

Re: Why is the ePorsche carrying the Turbo name?

Tesla owns the supercharger network, and it's exclusive to their brand, so it behooves them to market it as a Tesla feature.
