So it's not distracted driving if the manufacturer basically installs a smartphone with 5 screens in the car?

+1

The design cues certainly resonate the 1st gen Civics, which is quite neat. Let's hope they don't rust like them.

I have a soft spot for the 1st gen civics, my mom had one (not sure what year, maybe '77) she bought brand new as her first car. I was brought home from the hospital in that car.

For some stupid reason she decided to just give it away to one of my cousins for free in the mid 90's, he wasn't even a very close cousin (who sold it a year later to buy a rusty MK2 golf)

If that car was still around when I turned driving age, I'd have it and probably would have been a Civic guy today instead of a Mustang guy :P

I don't understand this. If you can charge at home, how many people really need more than 200km a day?

The new leaf will have 360km of range but yea the fact is its hard to charge an ev in vancouver.

Living with a few EVs in the past year is actually quite difficult if you don't live in a house. I was not able to run power from my apartment and my work didn't have a plug-in. So what I ended up doing was going to the mall to charge. Metro having only 7 chargers means its generally taken up.

When I had the Smart EV which only had about 100km of range was a headache. I kept having to go to Market Crossing to charge the car and sit inside Starbucks or Tim Hortons and waited. Worse was when another car would pull up taking up 1/2 the current and increasing the charge time.

Can it take a selfie?

My friend just bought a Kona EV (which looks 1000x better than the gas version) and it supposedly gets 415km of range.

My dad just bought a Kona EV. I believe if you want the battery to last, you're supposed to only use around 80% capacity, so the range isn't really 415km, but that's still pretty good.

His commute is only around 20km each way and he charges it once a week or so.

EV is great and all, but I don't find EV charging readily available enough yet at this point, and it still takes extra effort to make sure you can find a spot to charge up.

I park on the street at home so I don't have a convenient way to charge up.

Gas is expensive and all, although I've personally never considered it too expensive to the point I would rather drive EV to cut costs. I have no issue with the range, but I just don't want to worry about not being able to find places to charge up when I need to. Not really practical for my lifestyle. I have friends that pre-plan everywhere they go and select restaurants to go eat out based on whether it's close enough to a charging station, lol.

I would actually buy one of these. Dig the car inside and out. Roughly 200km is a good enough range for in the city.

Personally I wouldn’t even consider an EV that didn’t get at least 600km. 1000 would be ideal. It’s not so much in day to day use, it’s the 6-10 trips a year where I don’t want to stop 3 times for half an hour to charge.

A few people at work have Model X’s and they park them on the street. They use those like rubber car ramps to conceal the cable over the sidewalk when charging..kinda ghetto

Anyone interested in an EV should be doing research regarding chargers. Because my understanding is that only Tesla’s can use the “supercharger”? Where as Tesla’s can use any charger with the adapter?

Correct, only Tesla can use their superchargers however there are DC fast chargers around town which is pretty quick but those are paid rather than free like regular chargers.
