Re: Do you have an i3 on order and awaiting delivery?

Lyra Leader is in front I'm seeing the tail of the LL in the hi-res cam, apparently waiting for another lock drop ahead of it. In the low res cam, I think I am seeing the smaller boat in front of the LL. That is, I think the hi res cam is looking back/north, and the low res cam is looking forward/s...

Re: Any i3 owners who have also owned a C-Max or Fusion Ener

Not sure, but I heard you can get AM radio stations on the FM band. Can anyone confirm this? The i3 is an ultimate driving machine. The C-Max is not. There will be many DC fast charging stations in the near future. So the i3 will be able to leave the city soon without gasoline. No, you cannot get A...

Re: Do you have an i3 on order and awaiting delivery?

Lyra leader is on the move through the canal. She is centered in view right now on the hi-res cam at Miraflores locks ( http://www.pancanal.com/eng/photo/camera-java.html ). Between the start of this message and right now, the name Lyra Leader was in full view, then got blocked by a building that a...

Re: Do you have an i3 on order and awaiting delivery?

It's anchored outside Manzanillo waiting for its turn to go through Gatun. It will be at Hueneme on 8/15. You'll see ;) Gatun to Port Hueneme can be done by this class ship in 7 days, meaning we could see LL at PH on the 11th. Or, it could wait days to get it's start through the canal (it is there ...

Re: Pre-Conditioning via the App

... use my Android tablet to pre-condition when I think about it. Over the last maybe 10-days, when I've done this and gone down to the car, I've found it unlocked a total of three times. I can believe I may have forgotten once, but not three times. Plus, this morning when I did this, not only was ...

The Lyra Leader made it to Panama, seven hours early, a little after 7am CA time. Once through the canal in a day or so, we should have an ETA for Port Hueneme (Oxnard, CA).

Re: rapid charge retrofit?

There are lots of mountain passes and long grades, especially in the western USA where you may have a 10-mile or longer grade...great on an EV when going down, but hell on the way up. The i3 is sold as a city car, not a cross country touring car or an off-road trekker or a drag strip champ or a mou...

Re: Production time start to end?

Watching online I have never seen start to finish production in less than 9 days. Mine took 8 days production start to end. Then another 8 days to Bremerhaven, and another 8 days to board the Lyra Leader (2 days through customs + 6 days sitting at port and ship loading). Current estimate is 27 days...
