  3. I heard this story on the news last night and tried to find more information. Now that I have it I'm not sure I have any inkling which option is best. That 39.8¢ variable rate scares the crap out of me, but doesn't it say that price is only in effect for up to four hours on each of the six highest-demand days? I'm also assuming that the delivery costs (by my estimation about 6¢/kWh) is added to these prices. I guess the answer is to sign up, then come December compare the three different rates.
  4. I have a 2016 with 21,707 km. No problems at all. I have 12 months left on the lease and would look forward to the faster charger in the new model, otherwise I would consider buying it at the end of the lease.
  5. What time, Ron?
  6. Soooo......Bernie's? At 6 pm?
  7. I believe Mark Twain said "It were not best that we should all think alike; it is difference of opinion that makes horse-races." The electric is what I want, my fresh air needs are met by my Miata and my motorcycle.
  8. Sorry, but I hope that doesn't happen. I don't care for the ED convertible. In fact I turned down a lease offer on one that was at a more attractive price than the coupe I chose. I just want a cheap little crap-box and it's looking like it might not be a Smart.
  9. I'd still lease another ED in a second, if my lease was ending and the new model was available, but Nikki doesn't paint a rosy picture. If MB replaces the Smart ED with their own EVs, I have a hard time believing that they'd retain their claim to "most affordable EV."
  10. The other day I briefly saw 145 kms at full charge. After the car had moved about 100 ft the range had dropped to 120 kms. It has become a game. I know it's bull$hitting me, I want to see how big a lie I can get it to tell.
  11. The new EDs will be eligible for an extra $4,500 rebate in Ontario. I'm not great at math but that's $125 per month over 36 months. My lease says the residual value is 35% of the MSRP, which would mean that my lease should be paying back 65% of the retail price. 65% of $4,500 would be $2,925 or $81.25 per month. If the MSRP stayed the same, shouldn't that mean that a 36 month lease should be at least $81.25 less per month? The world of leasing is very confusing to me, but shouldn't it be fairly easy to get a lower lease rate now that Ontario is kicking in an extra $4,500?

  15. Dropping a 'busa motor into it might have actually been easier.
