The all-new smart electric drive is so green it's tree powered ; )

Hey Arvind, I test drove a LEAF myself, and it's a great EV.  So I'd say have no regrets.

It would be great if you share your experience with the smart ED owners for comparison.

We are inclusive to electric vehicles here.

Sorry to say but we bought a 2013 Leaf SV last week instead. It was a very hard decision, influenced by: family of 5 with avg household age 71, leaf is bigger/more practical for this family, leaf has been out longer and is better supported, smart ED relatively new, no dealer discounts. Will be watching the evolution of the ED3 with great interest from the sidelines.

Anyone picking up their smart electric drive today?

Getting the process started to install a charging station in the garage. First step was to fill out a questionnaire at -- then a guy from Bosch in Michigan called me promptly, and identified a local electrician to come out, inspect the location, and give me a quote. The HW itself can cost $1300-$1600 (also at above website). Need to do some drywall work before calling electrician. Anyone else go through this process before? Any tips?

We changed our minds after learning that it will cost $3000 to get the custom color we wanted. So will take one of the cars expected in the first shipment. Due date still May 15.

I was hoping that the San Jose shipment would arrive May 3. I am still waiting to buy an ED3. I don't think I can wait until August or September or whenever.

San Jose shipment delayed from May 3 to May 15. Something to do with battery lease terms ... We didn't like any of the configurations in the first shipment, and have special ordered our preferred configuration for ED3. Expect it to arrive mid-August.
