    Hi all you old timers - My 1st Forum post here. Our 1st EV drives were in our company S-10 EV's. About the time those leases ran out, we'd gotten our '04 Prius ... trading in the 99 Ford Explorer. Two years later, the 06 hybrid Lexus SUV came to market, so we said bye bye to the 2002 Range Rover. Then, March of 2011 we finally went back to pure ev, purchasing Leaf with VIN ending with 000659. It' s got 50K miles on it now. Gona say bye bye to the hybrid Lexus , just as soon as the X gets delivered. With our purposely (fully amortized) over sized rooftop PV system - both the Leaf & the X can fuel up for zero cost. So, that's the plan, and a bit of our history. Ok, that's post #1. I want to give thanks to the mods for maintaining the forum, too.

    Wow, the Chevy S-10 EVs! I had read about them, but of course have hardly ever heard of anyone who had or drove one. With that and the hybrids and the LEAF, you are quite the gas saving and electrical driving pioneer.

    Welcome to TMC! Interesting to have someone with S-10 EV experience here. So do you have an X reservation?

    Gotta love the full amortized PV system. I had a Solar City PPA system installed in February but it's still not turned-on yet. The electric company needs to swap-out my meter and they are in no hurry to do so. It's killing me that these panels have been on my roof for two months with zero production. Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread.
