you didn't test a Tesla? It can display SOC% (but only by replacing the remaining range with the SOC%).
A setting changes range remaining to SoC

I forgot to look carefully when I test drove the Fiat 500e in the past but it looks it that car has it: https://www.allpar.com/cars/adopted/fiat/500e.html.

Bolt unfortunately for some stupid reason doesn't but the % SoC can be viewed via the My Chevrolet app, which is slow to update unless connected via KeyPass (near/in the car). Someone (here, I think) pointed out the KeyPass fact to me and also that the value can be displayed on the large LCD when connected via CarPlay.

From the gallery at https://www.smartusa.com/models/eq-pure-coupe, the gen 2 Smart ForTwo ED has it, as well. From https://www.greencarreports.com/news/10 ... n-the-road, looks like the previous gen had it, as well.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Any word on the supply and markup situation? It's funny that at https://www.facebook.com/groups/nissan. ... 162934371/ (a closed group), many people keep bringing it up, assuming the OP even lives in a state where it's available.

Anecdotal, but there are none at dealers in Minnesota. I did get a chance to sit in one when the generous owner brought it to one of the EV events I attended.
They had bought it in Maryland, and drove it back to Minnesota :)
Nice looking vehicle and the UI seems better than most. If the Model 3 wasn't available, I might have bought one 8-)

The U.S. spec 2020 Kona BEV is getting a battery warmer, but not a heat pump. GCR:
