  1. Haven’t needed one yet. I plug in when I come home at night and I’m good for 315 miles the next day. Never have used it all just driving around El Paso. I drove it to Lubbock non-stop and that was 295 miles.

    1. I’m going to try and do some really complicated math.
      You drove 295 miles FROM your home Leaving you 20 miles on the charge. But you never charged anywhere EXCEPT your home.

        1. I find it interesting that criminals always seem to return to the scene of the crime. Lubbock is the location where he committed some of his most disgusting crimes.

      1. I charged the car in Lubbock several times before returning to El Paso. They have charging stations everywhere in Lubbock. The charger I used was in my friend’s garage there.

  2. Carbon footprint? When you live next door to a failed Narco state that have half their people living in third world conditions you won’t get clean air. Look south, when you see big plumes of smoke, that’s the Cartels burning evidence
