Yes, it's pretty poor, isn't it.

I think a minimum of 60 Km range under stress, that is, the minimum you could get is what is required.

These things exist, at least, but they come under the category of "electrically-assisted fuel consumption reduction" or something like that.

Too Prius.

Old hat now.

F****** get with it.   I think.

The car sales ad is very poor, doesn't seem to say anywhere that it is a plug in hybrid, though you can sort of work it out from reading the rest.

Yikes, at that price, about 80 K, you may as well get a BMW i3 and be able to travel much further than 50km.

need to find out if wallbox may is included.

This is especially true for houses with old wiring.
Need to find out how much it costs for their alleged 16 amp unit.

BMW also source a 16 amp home wallbox.

this article says wall box is included, though houses with older wiring may cost more to wire up. ... eftm-16519

when i talked to a sydney dealer the wallbox isn't a wallbox but a holster for the mobile cable, which has a 10amp pigtail for out and about. (ie unplug the 10amp pigtail slot the rest into the wallbox thingy, it then detects and increases the amps)

they where also covering cost of install for the early adopters to the tune of up to $1500 for install if you used their sparkies which sounded dam expensive. because he told me all the installs costed more than $1500....:-s

$1500 to install a EVSE Image

Perhaps they use (M series) Gold plated cable.
