It's here and it's FUN!

I pulled away from the dealer's charging station, turned right into heavy traffic and began my all-electric adventure!  21 miles to home on a mix of back roads and highway, and the car is everything I expected it to be and more.  I forgot to put on Eco Mode and managed 2.8 miles/kwh on a beautiful, 70-degree day in Massachusetts.

The car is "naked" without the decals.  It was one of the stipulations of purchase -- "too geeky", She said.  After 18 years of marriage, you generally know when you're getting a good bargain. 

And now the car is tucked in for the night, sipping from the charger, gearing up for the daily 50 mile, round-trip grind down RT2 to RT128 in Boston.....I can't wait!
