why is there no posting of the consumption of electrcity per kwh to charge the EV between fills?
what about the lifespan and replacement cost of batteries?
that needs to be factored in the cost per km.
obviously for example if the batteries last 10 years and cost $7000 to replace then you should add $700 per year to the cost to charge
then the next question would be ...why would you give up a car that is the end all to saving fuel cost and is carbon nuetral? or is it?

Is that volunteered info from drivers or documented fact?

This chart you posted, is it suppose to represent drivers that have submitted their info or what?

Interesting links to a 'blog' site.

I think info straight from the manufacturer would be more accountable regarding any discrepancies. (particularly in court)

Info from unknown private sources can write anything that could be exaggerated in any way.

I've been duped before with all kinds of claims from snake oil products to hidden arbitration agreements.

If you want an official source, talk with smart....

Talk is cheap!

30 years ago I was looking for a refrigerator with a water and ice dispenser.

Went to a consumer trade show where a salesman told my wife and I that this model made crystal clear ice!

2 weeks later after the $2000+ refrigerator arrive we were anxious to see this marvel of technology.

Lesson learned, talk is cheap, when you can't substantiate a claim.

No, the fridge did not produce crystal clear ice or even come close to it.

People will say anything as long as they think you will believe it.

Unless it is in writing its bull crap!

That's it!

If it is factual it should be printed on the EV smart performance specifications and the owners battery warranty.

All I am asking for is a link to the printed documentation.

That should not be asking to much is it?

If someone has that info please share it.

My blog linked directly to the Smart documentation, you just didn't read it I guess.

There are a number of us who have invested thousands of hours researching electric cars (like me) on this board.

Not going to spend any more time educating someone who doesn't spend 10 seconds on google, or read a well written and researched blog article.

Bye.

Blogs! are you kidding? Unless it comes from MB its only a comment, an opinion or an exaggeration, or even worse, hearsay.

Talk to a contract lawyer and see how verbal agreements demonstrate validity vs a written contract in court. Ask yourself why?

Blogs! the very word sound like it came from an imbecile!

Don't be offended. I have my opinions too. I just prefer to learn them from factual documentation. That was how I was taught.

I like getting my info from so called educated drivers so I can catch them in a lie!

I find it interesting the psychology behind the propaganda in marketing and social media.

How some will defend to the death without really investigating the truth!

Just look at politics, religion and sports!

oh how we all get along...divide and conquer...the plan of the elite!

....here's an example of the mind control that we are being subjected to...

Look at your electric bill and see the words ...delivery charge...how stupid do we have to be to see that we cannot get electricity unless it is delivered to us!...so instead of including it in the kwh hrs rate they play this stupid game of breaking it down to make it seem like its out of their control and NOT included.

Here's another one...

You see an item on sale... its marked at $9.99 well that's BS,you cannot buy it for that price, but they tell you that's the price!

...and then you tell your buddy its on sale for $9.99

its $11.30!!! (rounded off of course) not $ 9.99

oh how we are duped! until we wake up

Like I said, I posted links and evidence and detailed calculations on the blog.

I blog because it's easier to explain concepts once and post a link than educate folks like you that come in without any knowledge and make baseless claims like needing to include battery replacement in the running cost of the Smart ED in your first post up thread. It's just your lack of knowledge that makes you suggest that.

Try actually reading the links I posted, then do some of your own research, test drive the car, and talk to owners.
