  2. do i need bigger battery upgrade if only using 1 or twice a year of long road trips?

    Yeah, the Republican introduced amendment to limit tax credits to EVs under $40,000 was nothing more than a message, it was non-binding. Its something Republicans could use in their campaigns, probably claiming they introduced legislation to stop wasteful spending and the Democrats ignored it...
  3. do i need bigger battery upgrade if only using 1 or twice a year of long road trips?

    I was reading that TeslaBjorn in Norway had a 11% reduction over 165,000 miles on his 2013 Model S (lots of supercharger use, and generally cooler temperatures in Norway), and someone commented on that article that they had a 9% reduction over 175,000 miles on their 2015 Model S.

    Mostly because I'm tracking this myself to create a graph by state/province
  5. New look at the EV factory

    From what I was reading from some early 1910's electric vehicle magazines put out by the Electric Vehicle Association of America, was that charging station owners were doing quite well making money. You can read them here (many of the archives are multiple magazines, over 300 pages total), from...
  6. Atlas Blue F-150 Lightning Pics From Irvine Spectrum, CA

    No, I haven't seen it in person, other than pictures of what might either be a Black or a Antimatter Blue F-150 Lightning on earlier threads.
  7. Atlas Blue F-150 Lightning Pics From Irvine Spectrum, CA

    I like that Atlas Blue, but I'd have to compare it against Anti-matter blue to see which one I like the most. https://www.fleet.ford.com/showroom/trucks/f150/f150-lightning/2022/?fmccmp=fv-reveal-flt-f150-lightning On the 360 Colorizer, Antimatter Blue looks like the picture shown in the first...
  8. Potential future EV credit changes [NO POLITICS]

    If they are not union, then the vehicle is not eligible for that $4500... Do you really think you'll need to take a 30-45 minute nap while charging on a long trip? Something that won't happen but a few times a year.
  9. Potential future EV credit changes [NO POLITICS]

    Also, this also removes the cap placed on sales of EV (it was 200,000 vehicles), so Tesla can at least get the $8000 credit again.
  10. Potential future EV credit changes [NO POLITICS]

    If it US built - non union with 50% us built battery, it looks like the credit is $8000. A union, US built EV is that $8000 PLUS $4500 for $12,500 The nice part of this proposed credit is that it can be used at the point of sale.
  11. Potential future EV credit changes [NO POLITICS]

    There is also this, too: From the article linked:
  12. Potential future EV credit changes [NO POLITICS]

    Information cross posted from: If the tax credit is stackable, like i think it might be, that means $12,500. If my stocks grow like I want them to, plus if I can save $12,000 in the next two years and 4 months and the combined $12,500 tax credit, I could afford the F-150 Lightning with the...
  13. The Major Problem With EVs No One Is Talking About

    This is more an internet connected car problem, and not an EV problem.

    According to the chart on the first post, your entry is 10830xxx, not 108278xx. FWIW, mine is 11118xxx
  15. Lithium EV vs Up coming Solid State EV

    QuantumScape so far (of news that they've released so far) is a 4 layer ceramic lithium SSB that they've tested to about 800 cycles.
  16. do i need bigger battery upgrade if only using 1 or twice a year of long road trips?

    This is a good indication on how well EV batteries last: https://insideevs.com/news/530836/2013-tesla-models-battery-degradation/amp/ 7 years, 165,000 miles and only 11% reduction in battery capacity (A 2013 Model S in Norway) Plus, some comments to the article, one guy states 174,000 miles...
  17. do i need bigger battery upgrade if only using 1 or twice a year of long road trips?

    The short answer is no. You don't need to spend an extra $7000 for the long range battery for the twice a year long trips you make. If you use the electric vehicle options in Google Maps, or use "A better route planner" website or the app, you can easily plan the trip around chargers. There's...
  18. Reservation holders for 2022 F-150 Lightning - sign in here!

    For what its worth, there's a lot of duplicates on the list. A few are clearly multiple reservations by a few people, but most duplicates are just duplicates.
  19. You can't get there from here.

    https://www.plugshare.com now has the F-150 Lightning as a vehicle you can add. For some odd reason, it has the NEMA 14-50 as an incompatible plug, but that's what most home chargers plug into.
