110V charger is acting up

I've spoken to our dealer and I think they are busily leafing through manuals to figure out what I'm talking about.  While they are busy with that, I thought I would post here for user…Continue

I read about "Messages" in the manual and after 11 months of driving, finally got one.  "Care Ser. in 30 Days."   Obviously it means a trip to the dealer, and probably means a battery check.  Does…Continue

Pix, finally.  Sorry for the delay.  For some reason, the photo posts upside down.  Here is a link to the photos on my profile page:

@spicejax  The smart business is alive and well and has been integrated into the larger M-B passenger car business. All of the same work is being done, but has been divided-up further and shared amongst the larger M-B team. It's a good thing though as it means smart is an integral part of the business. 

The ED launched in the ZEV states in May and the 50-state launch is early next year now. That is true. It's looking like February. Currently, California makes-up for about 70% of ED sales with NY, NJ and MA taking up the rest truly.  Are you interested in an electric spice?

Thanks Eric!  What a lifesaver.  Pictures to follow shortly.

Eric thanks for the info. So what if anything is happening in Montvale? smartUSA seems to have been absorbed into MBusa. We owners hardly know y'all are there.

Only thing happening is the ED and that's been pushed back. WTH?

Hi everyone, 

Mindy, I happen to have a pair of these decals you can have. Direct message me your address and I will send them out today/tomorrow. 

Did you wrap your car through smart Expressions? Would love to see it. 

For others, the part# is A 451 817 81 20.

Call your closest smart centers parts department. Give them your VIN# (see it on the dash looking from outside the drivers side windshield WMEE etc). They will have all the parts for your car on the computer. The ED decals should be on there. I don't know if there's different colors (black etc). Another idea is find someone that does vinyl signs, like FastSigns. They can reproduce the graphic, and it maybe cheaper than the MB part. You could have them do something like put your name in the D of ED. It's easy for them to do with the Die-cut vinyl.

If you go the MB part way. Let us know the part# so others can do the same.

I can't wait the see the wrap.

Three questions: Did you go with gold? How much did it cost? and Did they wrap the door jam as well?

See you at the Hangout tomorrow.

Does anyone know how to get (purchase/obtain/order) the decals that are the "plugs" on the tridion cell of the electric drive?  I did a wrap over my tridion cell and now I want to put the plug-shaped decal back on there.  Is it a part that can be ordered?  Can you pick the color?  I want black to match my black car.

Thanks in advance if anyone has info on this.

Turned in my Gen2 electric drive, and got my Gen3 last week.  Having lots of fun with it already.  This weekend I took it out to a friend's house - 70 miles round trip, all on one charge, 100 degrees outside in the Arizona sun, A/C on the whole way, driving at highway speeds.  Got home fine with 10% of the battery left.  Dash said average speed was 50mph, and that I got an average of 3.8 miles/kWh.  Pretty darn good!
