The driver is under 28 or the car is under 28? I’d be in favor of the latter - I don’t go to C&C to look at your stock 2007 Challenger with a cold air intake. The last C&C I was at was row after row of stock late model pony cars. I get that you like your car, but there’s nothing rare or unique about your 2010 Camaro… Read more
My sister is a public defender and has basically a stack of books on how men’s brains don’t fully form until about 28 because she deals with lots of stupid men that fit the bill. When I was 25, I ::shocker:: bought a Mustang, because it was the fastest I could afford. I didn’t crash it, but wow, looking back... wow.… Read more
Also GS350/GSF (totally biased though)
Alanis saved my life more than anyone will ever know, providing much needed backup for Jalopnik’s racing coverage when I really, really needed it. Trying to keep an eye on all the racing series all the time was exhausting as the only person here who was paying close attention to it, and being able to trade off weekend… Read more
Keep in mind a lot of the advice you are getting here is from people who clearly don’t own an EV.
The AC reduces total range by about 20 miles. That’s it. It’s negligible. Heater kills it, but you don't use those in Houston.
Start- stop driving is best for EV driving because when stop/ slow down, you’re regenerating power.
It’s heat that takes a toll on range, but not really the A/C. I can sit in my Volt with the AC running on a 100 degree day and use about 1kwh per hour, so you might use 4kwh in 4 hours, which is nothing in a high capacity EV. To equate that to miles, it’s probably no more of a hit than a 16-20 miles of range to run AC… Read more
Your fear is unfounded. AC/Heat have a very, very small effect on energy usage. You can sit in your driveway with AC/Heat, radio, etc... running with an EV much, much longer than an ICE car. With Tesla, there is even a camp mode to keep the cabin temperature stable over night. You’re fine. 100 miles is a piece of… Read more
48 miles give or take. It’s distance, not time that has the majority of effect on usage.
