Re: [EVDL] What connector is this? - Embracing EVs

charge and add a petrol generator to your trunk or as a trailer. Someday you might be able to charge while waiting at a
stop light.

ce ideas, they implement practical solutions =

such as buying a gas car because it is cheaper in the long run. Money talk=
