    What are your thoughts on keeping the car plugged in all the time as the manual suggests. Do you know if the battery cooling system needs the car to be constantly plugged in?

    Huh, I wonder why they didn’t use the heater for the cabin to heat the batteries as well (like how the cabin and batteries share the same compressor for cooling).

    While you have one where you can see a lot of it, is there any way to run cables from the frunk into the passenger compartment? For example, to install Amateur Radios or other equipment that need access to 12V power and other things, such as an antenna?
