Re: GOM (estimated mileage) and battery degradation

I'm just getting started with checking battery capacity after 3+ years & it's merely curiosity for me.

I feel pretty confident that GM Engineers designed the packs to handle 100% charge at each 'fill-up' - Time will tell!

Re: GOM (estimated mileage) and battery degradation

Last night, I charged our 2015 Spark EV 2 LT at an EVGO station, and charged to 100%, with GOM showing 77 miles of range (50-degree temps last night). Car has been in our hands since late 2016, when we purchased it as a 178 mile demo unit. This is only the ninth time using L3/DC charging since we've...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

Stopped by the EA charge station here in Raleigh, NC this morning - found a number of the terminals to be down due to card reader issues, 3 would not connect to our 2015 Spark. Tried terminal 1, and it managed to connect & provided full charge. Spoke with EA Customer Service to let them know of inop...

Re: Porsche mission e depreciation

The Porsche 'likely' won't be a disposable car like the Tesla. Try buying new parts from Tesla - it ain't happening. Salvage prices on Tesla S/X are high due to lack of spare parts. And the 800-lb Gorilla in the room is the question: "What will it cost to service a Tesla that is out of warranty? And...

Car has been in for service on 2 occasions for 'Check Car' light - We still love driving the wee little beasty... and the local utility still provides free power for charging. PS: It would be GREAT if the local C...

Re: 7500 tax credit going away asap

Wow... I went away for a few days, and Hell breaks loose. Re: EV tax credit - kill it. Now. With fire if required. It's on its way towards planned obsolescence, anyway. If it dies tomorrow, or a year from now, it still dies. From the politics side, there is no 'Progressive' position. It's a fallacy....
