@  Th3Guardian : (13 December 2014 - 07:32 PM) does anyone have experience with this cruise control? http://www.smartiepa...e=index&cPath=1
@  FlossyTheSmart : (10 December 2014 - 11:30 AM) If anyone ever happens across a dead attachment (The file doesn't exist when you go to download it), let me know the link to the file. Generally you'll encounter dead attachments in posts older than 2007. The dead links are raising some (false) red flags for me on some things, and it's kind of annoying, so I've been making sure to edit the links away as I find them. The files are typically gone for good.

I was just wondering what kind of cost would be associated with recharging these little beauties. My hydro at this point is around $300 a month and I live about an hour and a half from the larger cities. Hydro keeps saying that we have to conserve and every time we get our hydro bill down a bit they raise the cost of hydro for one BS excuse or another.

If you are asking about the ED about $2 for a full charge for about 135 km of range. A/C uses up about 5% of the available charge, heat much more.

I've tried to find out the kWh required to bring a battery from 80% drain to full recharge - no luck thus far. I think $2.00 is a bit light - that would mean (in BC at 9 cents kWh) about 22 kWh, or an old 100 watt bulb running for 220 hours...What we really need is the kWh, then you can figure out the cost. May depend on time of day in some regions.Like all driving, you can make this number smaller by driving conservatively. All the same principles apply - your ability to anticipate traffic flow, your speed, losing weight in the city, tire pressure..... it will all make a difference.

17.6 kWh? Wow.... Well, then I guess the car will cost well under $2.00 to recharge in BC. Especially if you can get this within your cheaper rate of under 7 cents/kWh (limited to 1450 kWh per two month period per account - if you use more than this, it becomes closer to 9 cents). Rates outside of BC can be much higher, so perhaps that is where the $3.50 came from that the guys on the smart electric drive tour are quoting. Have a look at the US EPA rating sheet here: http://en.wikipedia...._electric_drive I like how kWh/100 km (or kWh per 100 miles) is used in the ratings. I would think this is the standard, but I've never been up on electric vehicle geekery... The EPA lists the smart EV as 87 mpg (US) equivalent. And the car is way heavier. Here's a bit of a primer I found on decoding the ratings for electrics: http://www.edmunds.c...ic-car-mpg.html
