I'm in Central Florida and the KONA Electric is not for sale anywhere close to where I live, so I shopped online at Dealerships in Maryland and New Jersey. Found a great deal in the color I wanted (ceramic blue with white roof) in Maryland. Flew up to Maryland, bought the car and drove it just under 1100 miles to bring it home.. I already have 2000 miles on it and love it. I'm on track getting well over 300 miles on a charge. Here in Florida, we don't really have cold weather, so, running the range killing heater won't be necessary. AC only seems to have minor impact on range (shows 20 miles range decrease when AC is on) Already disabled VESS do get rid of the noise at low speeds..
