      I actually had to read this ARTICLE twice myself - this is TCL God Bob Lutz talking!

      I really like my JuiceBox also. I like that I can see charging status from my phone, tracks all of my usage, and can send push notifications to my phone when it starts, stops, and if I forget to...

      The Fiat comes with 2 trip odometers, and I reset them both upon delivery. However, now that I no longer reset my trip odometer at each gas fill up, I have different uses for them. Trip A is now MY...

      Well, I'm committed now - I sold my Focus ST, and now have the 500e as my full time daily driver!

      Since I bought the Fiat, I simply had not driven the Focus, nor have I really needed to. Upon...
    5. 4 Week Update

      After 4 weeks of ownership of my fantastic Fiat 500e, here is a quick update.

      So far, the car has performed flawlessly, and I have really enjoyed the overall experience, especially the power...

      But you are perfectly fine charging your li-ion laptop, tablet, headset, razor, toothbrush or cell phone indoors regularly? By your logic, you should probably move these spooky, scary, and dangerous...

      There is just so much FUD. The media has this whole nation confused and scared.

      The intention of replacing physical controls with a screen is not just about making it cheaper to make (which it is), but is offering complete flexibility for future changes through software updates....

      Although I agree that Tesla and Musk have plenty of issues, I am really not impressed with what the traditional OEMs have brought out to compete either. Where are all of these new EVs I keep hearing...

      Congratulations! I'm just over 2 weeks in myself, and I was somewhat apprehensive going into an EV. However, now all of my gas cars feel so archaic. Wait a few weeks when it starts to settle in...
    11. This. Exactly this. I hate automatics...

      This. Exactly this.



      I hate automatics also. I hate the delay. I hate the lurch when you go to accelerate after a incomplete stop, I hate that you have to push throttle so far to initiate a...

      This is where BEVs really shine - the instant response and accurate speed control for use in traffic makes gas engines feel extremely laggy by comparison. Plus EVs are really efficient in low speed...
    13. Same here. I liked the BMW, but it shouted...

      Same here. I liked the BMW, but it shouted 'Electric Car', while the Fiat just shouted 'Quirky Bright Orange Fiat'! No one knows that it is an electric car - Literally no one. They just think...

      Dang- Mine isn't due to arrive until Tuesday! Although, I did stop to purchase everything I need to install the outlet this weekend.

      During my short tenure of EV ownership, I would agree that the 120V Level 1 charger works okay for most situations. However, I am going to a Level 2 unit (JuiceBox) so that I can top off quickly...

      I am on my 5th day of EV ownership with my 500e, and I enjoy it more each day. One of my favorite parts of owning the car is letting other people try it out. It's so much fun seeing the look on...

      I'm sorry? :D:thumbup:



      A quick tip - I plan on mounting mine on the wall in between my 2 garage doors so that I can charge not only in either garage stall, but also out in front of either...

      I strongly agree with this one! It made my 140 mile return trip a breeze. I actually stopped at a few extra places just to check them out, and they all worked well.

      Thanks! I really had to have the orange - It really fits the personality of the car. The design team did a really great job on a car that was strictly made to be a compliance car.

      As far as...

      I think you hit on an important point - It is all about expectations. The 500e is definitely not a car for all occasions, however, it is an outstanding second car for 90+% of the driving that people...
