Thank you.
It was fun to have two FFE's while it lasted.
Could not quite manage the S85D.
Although we did do an overnight test drive with one.
It was quite jaw dropping.

However, wifey loved a test ride in a Mitzubishi Outlander PHEV 2018.
Which we bought in June 2018 and sold both 2013 FFE and 2002 Quad Cab Dodge Dakota.

We've been twice back to Revelstoke in the Mitzubishi.
Not totally thrilled about hanging on to the fossil fuel tread.
However, it works quite well and the all wheel for winter driving is awesome.

I'll dream about the tesla until it comes true one day.

We now have a Bolt and an FFE: each has plus's and minus's in comparison.
Chevy better range of course, also better turning radius and nice seat height adjustment.
Ford rides better (a matter of opinion ... wife thinks otherwise) and allows ME to decide when to turn on lights, radio, & dim the mirror, etc. Also has OK navigation function, which Bolt lacks.

BTW, our 2012 FFE had better hand brake placement ... but ancient history now.

Tesla: I have read some horror stories about Super LONG delays for replacement parts, and some do not like the controls ... otherwise nifty car.
(Check the length of an S compared to others, regarding parking.)

With 2 FEV and living in BC, do you have the ability to have both of them on a charger every night?? What about in real cold weather---any concerns with having one car unplugged???

thanks ( We have three 2017 FEV's in the extended family, I also had a 2014 on a 3 year lease)
