[quote="turbo2ltr"]Some of you have been asking about the SOC gauge.
The estimated cost is going to be near the $200 mark. Maybe $175.
It's going to have several more features other than just the SOC gauge. Mostly convenience features. (clear the "I agree", possibly a "charge to n %" feature, etc)
It will sit in the most forward area of the center console (behind the cup holder)
The problem is that there just isn't a market for it to make it profitable. Sure there are some people interested in here, but we are talking about $10k in engineering costs (time and material). I'd have to sell one to 30% of the people on the spreadsheet just to break even. I just don't think there are that many people interested.
So I'm thinking of taking preorders just to see how many people are interested. I wouldn't charge your card until it shipped.
Yes Dave I did bother to read the first posting!! SOC: I take it means State of Charge. I am just a lowly Middle School Science teacher. I do not have all of the Geek speak memorized.
So the mileage gauge blows and this will give us a more accurate guide to how much farther we can go, yes?
