Working on some aerodynamic mods currently. I have a temporary belly pan on it as well as a grill cover.

Have about 1200 EV miles on it right now. I lowered the front end a little bit recently and was actually able to pick up a few MPH! And of course it has all new flat black wheels...

Very happy with the car as a commuter and errand-runner. It's awesome! The electric bill is almost negligeble.

Got a blog going at Comments and suggestions welcome.
