    The lease works out best for me. I'm sure I can keep the mileage under 12K per year because my wife has a new Honda CRV that we can use for road trips. In three years I can either buy out the lease or walk away and get into another new EV. It will be interesting to see what improvements are made over the those three years. This one is working out so well that I'll never go back to an ICE vehicle for my daily commute.

    We have just 4000 km on ours since February. Someone will get a sweet deal when we trade her in later this summer. And it won't be us getting a sweet deal I guarantee you. We should do private sale, but it seems to much effort. Years ago we did a private sale with trusted friends and that was easy peasy.

    Looks like we drive about the same amount of miles.. I usually drive 30k - 33k miles per year. My mileage is a little higher than it would usually be as I drove the car 1090 miles to bring it home from Maryland as the Kona Electric is not sold anywhere close to me (Florida)

    3200 kms, mostly hwy driving/road trips since it arrived late July. Spent zero dollars in electricity using the various level 2 chargers around town and the few free BC Hydro level 3 chargers in the area with my travels. I wasn't impressed with Victoria only having 1 level 3 charger in the undergound parking lot at a mall downtown by a walmart.
    The brakes clunk like many do due to the sub sized brake pads that are factory installed. I'm planning to have them replaced in the near future and also attempt to unplug the irritating moaning mermaid speaker.

    4/9/19 5136 miles and am sold on EVs. If they made a decent electric truck right now and didn't cost a million bucks, I'd have one of those too.

    glad to see Victoria is getting some more L3 chargers. There weren't many when I was over during the summer and I used plugshare to search for them.
    Is the charger at HD a true L3? Be great if it was!
    Petro can is installing a L3 charger in Kamloops soon too. It will be interesting to see if the infrastructure is there to have a true 200kW charger vs the 50kW ones in the area. Am I correct beleiving the Kona can handle a 100kW charge?
