Observations about driving a 21st Century electric car from a quantitative, technical perspective
19 April 2012
If you are in Chicago...
This is what Green Wheels Chicago looks like. 1540 North Western Avenue, Chicago, IL 60622 Not sure if that is the view from the street. Their prices for the Think mentioned in my previous post include shipping.
I work in the class 8 heavy truck industry. We design and verify the embedded systems (computers modules) that run everything these days.
We relocated to North Carolina in Mid 2010 and were not allowed to renew our lease of the all electric Mini E. We now own two "Think City EV" cars and sold our gas cars.
I am watching the developments in upcoming electric cars but so far I am very disappointed that none of the affordable early offerings even come close to the 12 kW built in charger that the Mini E has.
