Hey, Everyone. We bought our Pacifical Limited in late August and have been putting it through the paces. So far we love it. Im a huge fan of the feel of the electric drivetrain.

Having now driven it from hot summer temps into the winter i'm learning the downsides of cold climate on battery efficiency. We've learned to adjust a bit to make the most of the lower mileage. I now bring my 120v charger to work with me to trickle charge while i'm working.

I recently installed a L2 charger in the garage which is a fantastic upgrade that allows for really fast top-offs and fast overnight full charges. But with gas being so cheap right now the payback time isn't really practical. I'm crunching some numbers to get a sense of the charge cost vs. gas cost. I'm curious who else has figured that out to see if i'm close.

Welcome! I'm out in the west burbs and taking delivery in the next day or two. I haven't done any cost calcs as of yet so I can't help in that regards except for saying that I know some folks have gone pretty in depth in figuring out all the numbers. I just yesterday saw a spreadsheet someone on here had made of the break even points for everything you could want to know. I'll see if I can dig it up again.
Welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy the discussions here as much as I do. The forum is one of the first things I read in the morning along with the paper (online too). I am seeing more Pacificas all the time here in the NW burbs of Chicago too.
