Yep, I wimped out and bought a ready-made EV. It is a 2011 Think City made in Elkhart, IN. Was a company demo with 3500 miles. Good deal. I don't think I could buy batteries and charger for what I paid. Better say we. A 50/50 split with Darlene (the usual deal between us :-)). Anyway, we've had it about 2 weeks. I get to use it about every other day or two. Pretty nice. I like it. Just got the L2 EVSE installed this weekend. Put in a kWh meter also.
