    Tesla QUADRUPLED Supercharger Prices Overnight

    Thanks for the information. We actually rented one for a weekend using Turo since we couldn't find one on a dealer's lot (kind of like the Mach-E). I didn't say she wouldn't be using any gas - it was definitely fun to punch it at the lights or getting on the on-ramps where you get the ICE and...

    Tesla QUADRUPLED Supercharger Prices Overnight

    I have a Jeep Wrangler 4xe on the way for my wife. She works about five minutes away and rarely leaves the county. While it wouldn't work for my needs, I think this will be perfect for her - gets about 25-30 miles electric per charge. We can charge it every night and a tank of gas should last...

    GTPE Build week of 01/10/2022

    I haven't checked since my first email. I'll check again this evening/tomorrow to see if mine has been pushed out.

    Resale price?

    I went to look at a GT PE that a dealer had on the lot and I got Vroom to price my FE and that is basically exactly what they offered me. Same mileage and everything.

    Resale price?

    I have sold two cars to CarMax in the last three weeks. One for more than I paid 9 months ago and the other (a 2020 Volvo XC40 we bought at the end of 2019) they gave us $43,000 when we paid $44,500 two years ago (that was sticker -not the out the door price with taxes, tag, etc.). Vroom and...

    Too many Mach-E’s!

    Over 7 months and I still have not seen another one on the road. I'm here in the foothills of NC - about a three-county radius but I occasionally venture down into Charlotte.

    November 3rd 2021 Revised Tax incentives for EVs from House of Reps.

    I think you will lose your deposit once it gets scheduled for production. Although you may still be able to get it back if you cancel before the actual production week. Not sure. Perhaps those more knowledgeable will be able to chime in. I was in the same situation - thinking about canceling...

    GTPE Build week of 01/10/2022

    There was a VIN # later on in the email. And I think an additional link to track the car (maybe). I also wasn't sure if I would get an email. Some people said they did but most people said they had to keep checking the website. I learned about a month ago that Thursdays were the days that...

    GTPE Build week of 01/10/2022

    Got the email this morning. I put in my order on August 27th. It got rolled over to a 2022 (expected). A few weeks ago I saw a thread where it came out that when these got rolled over to 2022 a lot of the priority changed (something about going from a 10 to a 99 - someone said 99 meant...

    No Tax Credit for my loaded GTPE?

    Well that double sucks then. I was trying to decide between taking off the pano or taking off co-pilot to get below the $69K and I decided with the pano. I'll call my contact at the local dealership and discuss it with him. My concern is that, from being on this board, I know more about the...

    No Tax Credit for my loaded GTPE?

    I have a GT PE on order (no production date yet). Obviously will take delivery in 2022. I know it hasn't passed but the potential seems to be growing stronger that it will with the $69K cap. I am sitting at Total MSRP of $70,530. So remove the Pano roof (which I love) and take out the mats...

    No Tax Credit for my loaded GTPE?

    I had never really considered an EV. I would probably not have considered the Mach-E without the $7,500 tax credit. Mentally, that brought it down to be comparable with the other (ICE) vehicles I was considering.

    I'll call around when the time comes. Thanks for the information.

    Swapping out GTPE Summer Tires for all-seasons

    A lot of good information here. Another question - as someone who will never take it to the track, etc., and really just enjoys the torque at launch and leaving people at the light. I would want the smoothest, quietest ride and whatever performance I get will be fine with me, any suggestions...

    GTPE Finally arrived at Dealership...pick-up tomorrow!

    I have a GTPE on order and I drove 6 hours round trip yesterday just to check that I could fit in the seats without a problem. I'm 6'1+ and about 280. I had this vision of them squishing me in from the sides but I found that I didn't even notice them (for which I was grateful). The...

    Swapping out GTPE Summer Tires for all-seasons

    This is a question I had. I'm 54 years old and I have never "changed" out tires (for seasons). I live in the foothills of NC. We get snow two to five times a year. Are summer tires not acceptable for this type of weather? When you change your tires for the winter do you store the "summer"...

    Original orderers backing out of their GTs?

    I have a Cyber Orange on order (2022 with no production date yet). I drove 6 hours round-trip to VA yesterday because a dealer had two GT PE and I wanted to test drive one (just to make sure it was worth upgrading my FE). Both had a $10,000 ADM. The only way I was going to buy a 2021 model...
