8 mi range on the dash range meter is flat pavement figure, or real life battery EV. For instance the EPA rates the 4Xe at 21, but our EV driving has our EV range estimator at 29 miles. So I think there is a "learning curve" for that calculated EV range on the dash.
The following will...
OMG, plug it in Every. Single. Day.
Throw away your smart phones, what pieces of junk they turned out to be!
I'm at 23.8 lifetime mpg, and slowly rising. I drove the first 3000 miles like a maniac on vacation and traveling.
Now that we have been using it at home as a daily driver...
I've seen this happen. We owned two EV's before our 4xE and saw this from time to time.
Anti-EV drivers liked to park their ICE cars in the EV spots too. Until the local laws caught up with technology and made hefty parking fines for doing that.
You're lucky you didn't lock up that night but sorry that happened to you.
I came outside one morning to find my trucks passenger window busted out, damage to my door and door frame, and interior damage from whatever crude tools they used to bust in.
When I park in known smash-n-grab places I...
For some reason, many people like to bust the 4Xe's chops because it's more money and not efficient. How about we look at a Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid and compare it to the Rubicon 4Xe.
Keep in mind, this is a tomato vs bone-in ribeye steak comparison. Prius is an aerodynamic high mileage...
These are our opinions, I hope no one takes offense to our criticisms of what choice they may have bought.
We bought a 4xe, but it had nothing, zero, zip, nada, to do with fuel economy. The mileage in town on battery driving is a bonus. We were seeking a FUN car. The fun factor was...
The A/C running on battery is that loud “vacuum sound” people complain about. It is a bit loud LoL, when that happens I just turn the engine on and it quiets down.
Our “doggie” mode so far is doors off, sides and back off, top latched for shade.
This is our preferred running mode in the sun...
