New production EVs and PHEV

well I heard that BMW are actually going with the "standard" of SAE Combo which is the J1772 with extra dc connects underneath.

at the moment the only safe bet is J1772 for slow charging has really be decided as the "Standard"

The CHAdeMO connector at Morriset has sustained some damage as the plastic has been smashed so that you can remove the plug from the socket without unlocking.

Don't switch to gas HWS. That isn't helping reduce fossil fuel usage/CO2 production. It is turning a blind eye to the overall energy consumption equation. +1 gas prices are going to skyrocket if objections to CSG stay in place and we keep on exporting the majority of our gas.

EV Highway Perth to Augusta to where-ever

why accommodate when you can charge over $1000 for a chademo adapter

or even $95 for a SAE J1772 adapter
edit:
Don't forget supercharging isn't available on the base model is $2k extra on the next model up

oddly enough the home page works fine..

also can't access it on my mobile phone when going through wireless (802.11) but can on 3G. so it's not the computer, maybe the modem..
