Are u planning to replace the onboard charger with the charger for a Chademo outlet or do u intend to use it as an add on charger?
I don't know if I would characterize it as selling out as much as there really isn't a big selection of what I would like to drive. If there was an electric sports car that would give me the performance, style, and price of the Mustang I would have purchased it. Unfortunately that car may not be out for some time. I wish there was because I've enjoyed the electric drive train. Besides the wife's EcoBoost Mustang breaks down to $.08 a mile with the current gas prices where we live. Her Leaf was $.04 a mile if we charged at home and $.14 a mile if we used public charging at $.39 per kwh.I know gas is cheaper... But I couldn't see driving another leaf and there's nothing on the market that appealed to me. My GT is just me getting back to my roots... Besides Race Red with the premium Red leather interior is sexy!
I hear ya on the the siren song of GT's.
I also "sold out" and just bought a used Yamaha FJ-09 for longer road trips, but still use the Empulse for my daily commute. SOOOO much better in the city!
As to cages, I don't have one but I'm trying to persuade SWMBO to sell her 2008 Prius and get a Chevy Bolt BEV when it comes out in a couple of months. Sure the styling is not sexy (though quite practical), but that 200 mile range is sweet, and for less than half of a Tesla! If we want to do a larger road trip (rare occurence for us), renting an ICE car would be financially practical.
I am not too sure, but ideally it should. Do you know where the heaters are located? I can check on my bike and see if i find them.
