Yep, that's me, the white base model. I don't have anywhere to charge at home but fortunately that charger is only a two minute walk from my flat. I use the AC side for an hour or two early some mornings and that's practical because there is only a $0.40/kWh charge, no per minute. The 50kW DC charger still works concurrently if someone else comes along for a fast charge while I'm there.
I have not ever seen another Kona EV and no one has inquired about this one. But if I hang around the charger people seem to come out of the woodwork to ask general EV questions, questions that I'm only one step ahead of being able to answer since the car still has under 1000 km on it.
Have a good drive Monday. Napier-Taupo should use only about 35% if you're careful.
As I say, my brother was very excited to see yours charging recently...while I was still waiting for mine to be delivered!
In just two weeks of ownership, I just clocked over 1000kms yesterday...it's all been very pleasant driving.
On the open road, I found it sat really well...and even on the winding bits of the Napier-Taupo Road, I never felt the tyres were losing their grip (some reviews have suggested that the Eco Tyres are not very grippy). While I am no rally driver, I don't drive like a "Nana" either, so I like my cars to grip the road reasonably well.
I'm expecting some rain on my drive back to Auckland this afternoon...it will be interesting to see how my Kona copes with that.
How convenient that the Dickens Street charger is only a 2 minute walk from your home! I'm not as lucky as you, so I've had to pay for my own one in my garage at home.
I know you'll be enjoying your Kona as much as I am mine....maybe I will see you when I return for Xmas in Napier :-)
