Fall colors and Electric Vehicles…

Googled Berned Telsa

Same time this year…

So I made it through to Fall 2015 with an Electric Vehicle.
This may not seem like a lot to most but to me it means a lot !
Also in the news this year is the second season.

 

YouTube Screen capture Formula E

Formula E is Coming…

Formula E is coming.

 

 

So I see

Volkswagen on the ropes for Diesel,
Chevrolet Volt in the shadows,
Tesla delivering new models…

So combine that for Bernie Sanders and Tesla.
You get…
A Berned out Tesla is coming to the Crossroads of America, en route from San Diego to NYC.

 

See you all later ?

Just to explain the Summer of 2015

So far I have done the annual June car inspection with Smart Boston – Dealership.

So it has been a year and 5617 miles with no gas.
If it is $2.50 per gallon and 25 miles per gallon then thats $561.70 a year worth of gas.
But if it’s more like 50 miles per gallon or $230.85 for the year !
At 100 miles per gallon electric (MPGe) comparison it becomes $115.42 for gas !

Electricity is 12 cents a kilowatt and at 4 miles per kilowatt.
I estimate I used 5617 miles divided by 4 miles per kw
or 1404.25 kw multiplied by 12 cents
is $168.51 this year for electricity !

But Fuel Economy says someones Smart ED gets 117 MPGe !
The comparison page for 2014 Smart ED coupe says 107 MPGe for 68 miles range.
122 city and 93 Highway !
I beat that easily with maybe 68 highway range with heat or air at night in the rain !
OK, Some downhill and regenerative braking done… 

You do the MATH…

5617 by July 2015

Looking at miles traveled on the ECO page of VH.smart.com

Getting the Word out…

So who knows me and what I do ?
It is now almost a year since my last post that meant anything.
Last year at this time I was writing about Earth Day 2014 !
By July 2014 I had gotten the Electric Drive Smart

From Smart Center of Boston !

June was busy and near end I leased a 2014 Smart ED electric drive.
The plan is to lease the battery rather than include in cost of vehicle.
