Saw my first factory made EV today..

I've ridden by these Lexington MA parking meters, hundreds of times,
never saw a single EV re-charging.. Until today!
(That's the bicycle path behind the car).

Please forgive the camera phone..



The freakin door handles are flush!!

X, take a quick trip down to Natick. Sit in one at the show room. I did a few months ago. They were very nice and they have a real nice cut-away too.

Yeah! I wonder what kind of trade-in I could get for my Ford?

Hey, one never knows. I might win the lottery next week..

I saw my second Tesla Model S in the wild today! The first one was April 24th. I've been to the Natick Mall store and sat in the car, and had a good look at the chassis. They've sold a couple of dozen now, I think.

I've been seeing about 2-3 Leafs and about as many Volts per week lately, as well. There are even at least 3 Mitsubishi i MiEV's in the area, too.

We've had the Prius C for a year now, and we are just starting to see other Cs in the area.
I think we might have seen about half dozen in past few months.
I get the feeling they aren't a big seller around here.

Got to take it in for inspection this month. Since these are so rare around here,
I hope the gas station goofs don't break it!

Altough I'm not a Tesla fanboy, I might recognize its design is nice.

The Tesla Model S is the third pure EV to be sold in these parts, and they are the halo car for all EV's, in my opinion. As high performance and sexy and sleek as the Model S is - it is almost 2X as efficient as a Prius.

So it's very common for people to 'share' lanes. Even when driving.
