Welcome! Thrilled to be mentioned in the BMW email update!
We've been having so much fun driving the ActiveE, it hit me when I received the email from BMW today that I better do an update. We're now at 12,600 miles and what a pleasure it's been to continue driving 100% Electric with BMW.
We recently took a trip to Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, CA. This was quite the adventure. It was approximately 85 miles and while we knew that they had recently installed 6 brand new Level 2 Chargers, we weren't sure if they'd be available. As luck would have it, all 6 were wide open. We had a nice meal, played some slots and zipped back home after a quick stop in Old Town Temecula where two more Level 2 chargers were available for our use. Props to the 91 Express Lanes for allowing Electric Vehicles a free ride.
Yesterday was our 6 month anniversary with the ActiveE. It's our only car and we've yet to have to rent another vehicle for a longer trip. The 100 mile range has worked out perfectly. Leaving the house every morning with a full tank (aka battery) of electricity is fantastic. I don't miss stopping by the gas station every three days one bit.
We have 18 more months with the ActiveE and our goal is to drive, drive and drive some more.
Hope you'll continue to follow along on our journey.
