What electric car are you interested in next and why?
Subaru Solterra 4×4 capabilities. I live at the top of a steep hill so would be useful in the snow.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Pod Point – it came with the car, disappointing as it has to be online for charging schedules for off-peak rates. When the internet connection drops the car starts charging @ peak rates. It has been reliable though and never failed to charge when expected.
