She looks like if she took off her shirt, her back would be hairy also.
that sucks man!Service sucked, and they discontinued it, all they cared about was Land Rovers.
And then the service would suck, all they would care about is Alfa, then he'll get another Q. It's a vicious cycle.And then you'll get bored with it again, sell it, and buy a Fiat 500 Abarth or the like.
I am now more convinced than ever. If you are a two car family and have the ability to install a charger at your residence one of your vehicles should be an EV.Glad to hear your enjoying the leaf seemed like you would enjoy it when you initially considered swapping, I'm strongly considering changing to an EV for my daily
since 91 Octane is nearly $1.60 per L up here (almost $6/gallon) for you US folk and looking to get only more expensive.
Honestly if Nissan released a redesigned Leaf based on the ARIYA EV platform with real thermal management I'd be sold on the idea,
was expecting to do a hybrid next or the redesigned Q60 but nearly $30K in fuel savings over 10 years (assuming prices stay at this level)
is just too much money to ignore.
Don't need to sell me on the idea of EV's I'm all for them I'm actually writing this from a Fuel Cell R&D facility.I am now more convinced than ever. If you are a two car family and have the ability to install a charger at your residence one of your vehicles should be an EV.
And I say that not because I am an environmental extremist. EVs are simply better. Smooth, quiet, powerful and responsive with practically zero maintenance costs. My "fuel" costs are less that 3¢ per mile charging off-peak on time of use rates. The fact that there is some benefit to the environment is a plus. Also significant improvements in capacity and charging speed are right around the corner. For instance, KIA is releasing a car later this year that has the ability to charge at a whopping 350KW! The chargers aren't there yet but coming.
Take your ICE powered car on an extended road trip. Say 400 mile range on a tank of fuel. That is a long time to go without stretching your legs. Get to a fueling station. You can fill the tank in five minutes if there is no line. You will probably want to go to the bathroom, get a coffee and stretch your legs. Soon you will have an EV that has a range of 350 miles and can be refilled in 15-20 minutes.
My son has a Tesla "Y". He took a four day road trip from Milwaukee WI to Holland, Lansing and Dearborn (Henry Ford Museum) MI and back. At the motel in Lansing they had a free level II charger so it got refilled overnight. At GM's Renaissance they had reserved parking spots right out front for EVs. Picked up a free 60 miles of range while they toured downtown Detroit. In the four days he said they spent a total of about 90 minutes sitting at Tesla superchargers. And one of those times they had lunch anyway.
They are not for everybody. Easy access to charging is a must. ICE powered cars are still going to be around for a long time.
I think they heard you.The refreshed Q! I might pick up one of those upcoming Z if the price is right though.
Let's start a pool to guess how much dealerships will mark up the Z's over MSRP.I think they heard you.
Nissan's new Z sports car will be powered by a twin-turbo V-6 with a standard six-speed manual, and soon we'll see the version you can actually buy.www.caranddriver.com
Yep my thoughts as well in terms of price.I'm thinking it will sticker at mid 30s stripped, and low to mid 40s nicely equipped.
Nissan steps in and tells dealerships no markup..... Yeah that would never happen I'm saying 12k.Let's start a pool to guess how much dealerships will mark up the Z's over MSRP.
I agree. While there are Z-car fan boys out there, I don't think there are as many as there are for the various iterations of Shelby Mustangs.I'm thinking it will sticker at mid 30s stripped, and low to mid 40s nicely equipped. It'll be a nice car but I don't think the desire for a 2-door, 2-seat, sports car is there like some think it is. And the manual transmission everyone is talking about? I bet less than 20% will be sold with manuals. If there is a markup, I don't think it will last long.
