Never mind forget it, between the censored words and 1990s layout this forum sucks. I'm out.

Say "hi" to the TMC folk for me. I cancelled the intended Model P3D purchase last night after 2.3 years, and am waiting on my refund after they could not guess at the actual delivery date or features of the car. I would call it a reservation, but there are no reservations anymore.
Very few people on that site see the EV400 as a true electric car. It's a subcompact, nobody drives an SUV on an unimproved roads, 125mph is ridiculously slow, and brakes/handling are not needed for EVs. Luxury features are for fools. The EV400's 180 miles of range (per Muskivites Experts) won't even get you to work. And of course 72F is cruel and unusual punishment.

But they say that about any EV that is quicker than 10 seconds gong from 0-60mph and has over 80 miles of range.

Yeah, funny things on that forum. Good people too, just like any forum. There's this really annoying guy on the TMC forum though. McRat is his name.

Yeah, I could not find a Hillary Costume, and refused to hire illegals, so I was booted.

Demo vehicle in Chandler Arizona

Stopped by the Jaguar dealership in Chandler/Phoenix Arizona and they had the demo car there yesterday. Got to fondle it for a bit but no test drives. Can't wait... This thing is amazing.

The one concern I do have is the sun roof in Arizona with the strong sun that we have would it be nuisance? There is no cover to completely block the light. The day I go would happen to be one of the 30 overcast days a year in Arizona so I didn't get to see how it would be in the sun. 4 panes of glass, UV and heat protection... but the strong light might be too annoying for me.

It shouldn't be too hard to put body-colored vinyl on the roof, and a tint is always an option. None of the reviewers so far have complained about heat.
