Since there has been little information about the 2020 models, I doubt there will be much change.
Or maybe because they have a 6 month waiting list in Canada. At our dealer, their allotment of 2020 SL Epluses is all pre-sold for 2020.HRTKD wrote: ↑Wed Oct 16, 2019 7:42 amGiven there aren't any compelling new features in the 2020 model, I'll continue with the purchase process of the 2019. I'm not in any hurry though. I'm still waiting for the insurance to pay me for the totaled '15 Leaf.
The lack of a discount is strange. Maybe they aren't dealing because they're relying on the (generous) rebates to sell the car?
Ah, I hadn't considered that there would be a full order queue. I have one on hold, so it should be available.
Yepir. We have a 7.5 K diesel generator on board and 800 watts of solar on the roof. As long as the sun shines there is no need for the genny. But a couple of days of bad weather and the 8 x 6 volt batteries start to fade away. Ours has a residential fridge so a little more load than normal.HRTKD wrote: ↑Wed Oct 16, 2019 10:41 amAh, I hadn't considered that there would be a full order queue.

I see that you have a diesel motorhome. My F-350 is diesel. Love the power. On the Ford truck forum there was a recent thread asking when the Superduty series would go electric. It was mostly the camping and freight business owners arguing that a 100% electric heavy duty pickup truck is a long ways off, despite the claims of Rivian. I imagine the same could be said of motorhomes, though there's a lot more surface area on which to install solar for a motorhome than a pickup. My RV trailer has solar and it works great for me, but I sure like having the generator there, just in case.
