      Go for it! This car is a magic carpet. I do a 60 mile round trip with 4,oooft elevation change down to sea level and back up – no problem. Use 5% of battery only going down and 50% of battery come back. Plug in covenience overnight 110 is great.

        Your V&V letter does not say anything about HECO burning 100% nonrenewable energy and has more bicarbonate pollution per year than all of the automobiles on all Hawaii since the invention and importation of the automobile here. in 1899.

          You have no idea of the source of his electricity. I have a whole-house PV system on my roof. My house is zero carbon footprint and so is my car.
