Re: 2014 sparke collector car?

It'll be an interesting footnote in 20 years since it was the first production BEV sold by GM. I don't count the EV1 which was never sold and was really just a test fleet in consumer hands. But, the Spark EV will always be an electrified S-Box in most people's eyes, which doesn't have the cool fact...

(The 24 kW chargers are significantly less expensive to buy & install than the 50 kW chargers - less than 1/5 of the cost.) Source?

Re: Bolt!

None of which (the 100+ mi range LEAF not available before a year ago, or the standard charging rate of the base LEAF or the Spark) has anything to do with 'why aren't you talking about the Bolt very much here?' Why change your question mid-stream? Because SparkevBlogspot brought up supposed "reaso...

Re: Bolt!

MSRP on Leaf S starts at $29,010 You're talking about base Leaf with no DCFC, which I think is $1.2K option. Also, I doubt people who choose base Leaf S when SV/SL with 110 miles range is available will take much interest in Bolt. Much of the interest comes from people who can afford to pay $35K+ S...

Re: Can I use my Prius plug-in cable on my Spark, & vice ver

Any J1772 car can use any J1772 EVSE* . That's why it's called a standard. The charger and the EVSE negotiate the details of the session. Just because it's a standard doesn't mean there aren't compatibility problems. Some folks at https://priuschat.com/threads/charging-pip-using-chevy-volt-110v-cha...

Re: Bolt!

My biggest concern has nothing to do with EVs. Instead, I am greatly concerned by the inconsiderate attitude of some ICE, PHEV and PEV idiot drivers. These idiots seem to think the quick-charge parking spots are theirs to park in as they please and for as long as they want. Others fake charging by ...

Re: Bolt!

I'm surprised there's been so little chatter about the car here. http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=18907&start=580 has had about 25 pages of chatter between Feb 2016 posts and now vs. the crickets here. I think it's due to difference in demographics. Leaf is 5 seat and cost about $28...
