Pretty excited about getting a "new" car. Its on its way to the Ozark mountains from Mobile, AL.  A little over 6K miles and will be replacing my 2005 Scion XB.  I test drove one in '16 and that settled it for me as a replacement.  I'm 6'5" and it seemed just right to follow up the spacious XB (no kidding).  Can't wait to avoid our local gas stations which are consistently 30 to 40 cents more per gallon than anywhere else in Arkansas.

Hope you enjoy it - and yes, avoiding gas stations feels great.

Enjoy! Just filled up last week, and prior to that filled up in September. Plug in hybrids are nice that way.

The car arrived this afternoon, but without the charger.   The dealer told me it must have been removed during detailing.  They're supposed to be overnighting it, so will be burning gas for a couple more days.   Electrician might come out tomorrow (if he gets around to it) and install a plug for my level 2 in the garage.

I still stop by gas stations for bathrooms and snacks. And those windows don't wash themselves. About every three weeks I get some gas, but I do drive a lot.

About to end my first week of driving on EV only and averaging a bit over 45 miles per $1 with our local leckie rates.  Even went on an emergency "long" range 20+ mile run with 1 mile to spare.  The downside is that I now dread taking the Maximum Bob (named after an Elmore Leonard character) on a road trip because it will bring my numbers down.  P.S.  Really enjoying getting into a warm car every morning!

Glad your loving EV driving. I do recommend you let go of the high numbers and take the road trip. The C-Max has been a great road trip car for me. It is the combination local EV driving and the ability to take long road trips as a Hybrid that really show its versatility. The bottom line is to enjoy life and use this car as a great tool to get there no matter how far there is.

I'm with Tom on this one, I used mine as a battery-only car for the first few months, then I settled down to deciding when to use the gas for (a) distance and (b) for cabin heat.  Frequently during this very cold winter, I've been using the gas until the motor is warm, then EV until I'm close enough that the car will stay warm for the rest of the trip (further than I expected, frankly).  Playing with recharging on the highway is rather fun, too.

Yeah, it's hard to watch the numbers go down but overall if most driving is local EV they will quickly rebound.   :thumbsup:

 

 

MV, did you get an L2 EVSE (charger) yet?  It makes pre-conditioning/GO TIMES (especially warmups) more efficient and quicker.

Nice...yeah, this is pretty exciting to me as well. Good luck with the car!
