Yes, I’m still here. Not much to post about lately..catching up:
- Ford announced a 300 mile SUV EV (something I posted about).
- Then Ford sacked their CEO.
- Since then no news from Ford either good or bad (e.g. have the plans changed, will the EV come sooner or later–don’t know…)
Other things: I’ve been able to take the C-Max Energi camping some more:
Here it is with us at the Nashville KOA. It really is a great car for a “toad” (car towed along with the RV). Its small but not too small (same size as an Escape), with a small EVSE like my LCS-20P you can charge it up at the campground and be ready for any adventures/sightseeing/etc. and it can be towed 4-wheels down (we use a dolly so we can take any FWD car). About the only drawback to the C-Max Energi is its weight: at 3900+ lbs it is a bit heavy; enough so that some RV’s may not be able to tow it (the Hybrid version comes in at 3600+ lbs..those 200 lbs fewer may make all the difference).
So, yes, I’m still here and still posting (looks like I’m at a one a month give or take clip)…
