The angle makes the car look short, but you can see a bit of leaf next to it and its mostly the same length.

I hope they have it at the auto show, sometimes these companies thinks if the autoshow is in texas it needs trucks and only trucks and we don't always get to see the cool EVs or plug ins.
Great work! :) I'd buy it! (if I had the money)

Incidentally, I always park at Dallas City Hall, which is right across the street from the convention center. They have two free chargers. So I get free parking and a charge while I'm there. City Hall parking is always deserted on the weekends anyway.
That is great to know! :)
Don't forget: you need a special key fob to use those chargers! I charge there when I go to the Farmer's Market downtown. Look for my earlier posts in this thread...

you can call the number on my signature link to get a fob. You can also call it directly at the station and they will unlock and start the charge for you (and then send you a fob if you want).

I like the train though, so I will probably go with that route :D

After spending 40 minutes on the phone with them a year ago or so trying to get them to turn it on for me, I am glad I have the keyfob. In fact they sent me two of them, one for each of our cars.

The problem was when I called the lady was more than happy to turn it on but she kept asking me who my power provider was. I asked her very clearly, "do you mean MY provider for my house, or who is providing power for this station?" Because, I knew it was TXU for the station. But she insisted on knowing MY energy company, which was different. Eventually she said it was TXU (and I was like, "duh?") and got it turned on.

Remote turn-on was a complete FAIL for me. Don't say I didn't warn you... :shock:

Yea I wouldn't doubt it since there are only 7 of those stations, the reps probably don't know what to do since most of the units are in the northwest and they forget about the Texas ones. Key fob is the way to go - have 1 for each car.
