I’ve always loved these things, never thought I would buy one. We’ve needed a second car for a while now, decided it was time to put my money where my mouth is.

I love the concept of having an onboard generator. When I picked the car up the electric range was 0, by using “Mountain Mode” I was able to build up a 40% battery reserve to use going up big hills, the drive in complete silence once I got home. It’s the coolest thing ever. No range anxiety.
