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?

    Did you test its range in Normal or Eco mode? In Eco, the front engine isn’t used, whereas on Normal, it’s used when needed.

    What was the answer to this question...normal or eco mode in test?

    Actually eco mode does use both motors as shown on the dash display of power distribution.
    Having two motors increases maximal regen braking by applying it to both axles.
