Yep, bonehead move, but I've made a few myself. Too bad we're not all clairvoyant and can see into the future.

I just spent a week driving an EV, a 2023 Volvo C40 Ultimate.

It’s unlike anything I ever imagined. A Volvo with 400hp+ and 486ft-lb torque. Point, shoot, and hang on. There I was flogging it on canyon roads, driving the piss out of it in one-pedal mode. It’s by far one of the most fun driving experiences I’ve had in a modern car, period.

Charging was no big deal. Never had range anxiety. It didn’t burst into flames or have to be charged on the side of the road with a gas generator.

Give me an EV Wrangler with at least a 300 mile range. I want one.
You should try a Rivian. It’ll make you ?

Same Ford and GM are losing billions quarterly on EV’s people don’t want them or can’t afford them the infrastructure isn’t there and never will be. Electronics is not a strong point for Jeep the lots are full of the the 4XE can’t sell them, just like Ford. The government is the problem not what consumers want or need. Before they do all that, fix the goddamn paint issues Jesus.

I thought that the 4xe was the best selling plug-in hybrid on the market. I see them everywhere. What am I missing?

About $4,000 electrical mods to your house to make it PHEV-able.

Neighbor across from me bought a Tesla back 10 years ago. Got it home and could not figure out how to plug it in. Realizing if he wanted it charged he would have to call and electrician, costing today about $4,000. Thats about 20,000 miles of ICE gas cost...

I hardly ever see them here. I guess it depends on where you live. And sales are down on everything right now. Cars, houses, big ticket appliances, luxury items, all down.

I don't know, so I'll ask:
Are Teslas, etc. capable of 120V charging? It's understood that the charge time would be longer; I'm just curious about core capabilities.

They are Full of problems as we know. But the lots are now full of then with super high interest rates. Some are buying them and are not happy with them. We know they are not very reliable.

Sorry- gas vehicles are on the threatened species list , but small diesels are critically endangered. Just submit, comply and get electric now, before Toyota comes through with the announced 900mi range- 10min charge battery in ~28 and you might actually want one of your own free will….. Greatly Diminishing The Value Of The One You Get Now.

You need a $20 extension cord from Home Depot. You are only adding 22 miles of charge. Easily accomplished overnight. If you are charging a full EV, and trying to add 300 miles, it's another story. Your neighbor drives a full EV.

Yes you can charge any EV on 120v. It cost me $600 to get my level 2 charger installed by an electrician.

Five more years of our rigs being the latest model. My glass is half full, not half empty.
