Re: Where is the charge flap release on my 2014 I3?

In the right side rear door opening, bottom rear corner, there is a black foam cover with two small logos showing the charge flap door release and the charge cord lock release pulls. Pull that off and they are underneath.

I hope you strapped those bricks down. They might kill you even in a small accident!

Re: New owner long distance charging concerns

I would drive anywhere at any time with my 2015 Rex. The most I have driven in one day was 515 miles and I could have gone longer.

Re: New owner long distance charging concerns

Have you got the plugshare app on your phone? If you set the filters for the plugs that work on your car, you will see what is available along routes you wish to take. Read the comments to see how reliable the stations are. With a REX you should have no worries.

Re: 1st long trip in our 2015 i3 REX : Bay Area to Tahoe

Yep, with a little planning, you can go just about anywhere in a REX. I also have 2015 REX and recently went on the 1650 mile round trip on I-90 Washington to Montana and back with several mountain passes and cold temperatures (in the teens overnight). Piece of cake.

Re: Loss of Power in Real Life after 30 seconds

There is no loss of power unless your battery is very low. You can go up any hill an ICE can go up at normal speeds... you can accelerate with no loss of power. Not sure where you got this idea.

Re: Rex Junior and the tale of comfy winter driving without using the heater.

Hey, thanks for the comment, but I was perfectly comfortable. That's the point. I did not sacrifice my comfort, I just extended my range. I would look into the heated motorcycle clothing if it were a better option for me, but it isn't since only my ankles get cold. Might be a good idea for those who...
