Re: Some random thoughts about our i3

vger105 & JohnWasser – The i3 is a carbon-fiber, RWD, emission-free Zen pod – an oasis of calm during the madding commute. I've driven a good number of other EVs, including Teslas, and nothing comes close. Oasis of calm for sure. I've had mine (2017 REX) for a month and really hate that I'm not abl...

upgrade charging

I looking into putting in a 220v 40 amp service in my garage. Just checking to see if this is indeed what I need for a Level 2 charging system. I have a 2017 i3 REX. and it does take nearly forever to charge with the regular supplied cord. Also would any of you have recommendations on level 2 charge...
