They probably paid him enough that he doesn't care...

True. I thought he was one of the few celebrities who were truly committed to the cause and would not sell out, but I guess anyone can be bought.

If he was just pushing the FFE and not dissing other plugins that would be fine. I agree that the part where he knocks the competition is indeed a sell out. Sad to see.

No evidence of that. Most insurance companies just go by MSRP till some history is established.

My LEAF just doubled in insurance cost. It now costs more to insure than our 2011 Infiniti G37 convertible.

yes, the insurance is very expensive.
I pay more than $1200 a year, for the most I can buy 250-500k with a $500 deductible. i dont even count in the umbrella.
I prolly should go to a higher deductible. It even went up $30 on my yearly renewal, after having the car for 11 months. that is pretty unusual. You would think they would have figured out that most of the driving is sedate compared to a beemer, etc.
safeco.

of course, it is very hard to compare auto insurance because the market is so fragmented even within states. we are good drivers, education discount, multi-car and multi-policy discounts, too.

Wow just watched the video. It felt super cheap. Like cheap effects and editing... just didn't feel like professional quality.

Also, I'm not understanding the "Butterflies" and how they will eliminate range anxiety... so instead of trees, they have butterflies... that's just lame. (in the same way the trees are lame... the butterflies are even less relevant).

Also, the whole "our charger is 30% cheaper" is funny. I guess they are in on the business of wanting to make people buy an EVSE from them, and not shop around instead of getting ripped off by a dealer. I hope someone buying any EV right now is smart enough to shop around. $799-$899 from Home Depot and Lowe's is way cheaper than going through a dealer.
