Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

We often talk about the benefit of the xenon headlights on our long-term 2013 Cadillac ATS, but what does the light output look like?

    I had a 2010 CTS wagon with halogen projector bulbs, which I traded for a 3 row 2009 SRX when our family expanded. The SRX has xenon, but they both had equally sharp cutoff and wide light pattern (the only difference being the color of the light).

    My 09 Mustang, with reflector type xenons (factory - not aftermarket), does not have a very clear/sharp pattern. So I think the projector lenses are the key to a good headlight pattern, not the light source.

    Why are xenon headlights optional on any Cadillac? They should be standard equipment across the lineup. Make the adaptive feature optional.

    @allthingshonda - like xenons are optional on BMWs, MBs, Lexi ....? I think Acura is the only "luxury" maker with xenons standard - I'm not sure about the ILX though.

    Something about that photo--nice composition, with the dash lights and the polished rimes and the dark/light contrast.

    Yay and kudos for taking a beam output pic against a wall. This should be done with all cars in your fleet!

    +1 hank39. I really want to see how their MDX's highly advertised jewel eye LED headlights perform.
