    2022 Prius Prime or another Model 3?

    We sold our Ford Flex last year and have been living with one car (2018 M3) for the past 11 months. We're now ready to buy another car, and my wife's got a 2022 Prius Prime XLE on order.

    Using a Prius Prime custom cable setup with my MY -- temporary

    I traded in a 2020 Prius Prime Limited for a Model Y. I had a Prius forum member make a custom cable pigtail that plugged into my NEMA 14-50 50A 240V receptacle and ended in a 5-15 socket. The two blades in the plug were wired to the two sides of the socket providing 240V. This worked because...

    Will former Prius drivers drive more aggressively in a Model 3?

    OK. File this under "random thoughts." It's been inferred that Tesla expects to get a lot of former Prius owners with the Model 3. My question is this...Do you think they'll drive more aggressively once they get the Model 3? My hunch is "maybe" for a couple of reasons. 1) There's no more...

    Model X Design: Ugly or Sexy? Prius?!

    Friends of mine are in one of two camps concerning design: 1. Ugly (looks too similar to a Prius due to aerodynamic design compromises) 2. Sexy Personally, I keep flipping between the two - what about you guys? Kinda sad the nose cone is gone, personally.
