    And that front area... Oh boy..

    Driving the Clarity for two weeks now... I actually never ever noticed the rear wheel cover, even though I walk pass it every single day charging the vehicle by getting chargers from the trunk.

    ... Because it's rugged. :)

    As somebody who is neither an engineer nor physicist, I look at that and I think there's no way that tub is the least bit aerodynamic. That nose seems fat and tall and flat compared to other EVs (B or PH or otherwise).

    I don't care for the front but the side view is okay with me. I'd buy it.

    You stole my line! I really like the Clarity skirts, but then I liked them on my Grandfather's Hudson Hornet, too. It's just a bit retro, and everyone else will be copying it soon, maybe.

    I actually like the look of the Clarity. That's part of the reason I bought one. I even bought the white, to really show off the aerodynamic features!

    That's right. That strangely shaped cladding is needed to take those scrapes from boulders and logs when the Kona is used to traverse rivers and mountain trails.

    I can't stand the front. And having the charging port offset in the front messes me up too. I like symmetry.

    Hey I can dig it, If I had a 240v plug already installed at home I'd buy one.
    The Soul EV (the new one) is also handsome looking too.

    How far is your commute? It will probably charge 5 miles per hour at 120V.

    Its roughly 30 miles daily.
    Yeah it would fit under my current charging time load, but I dont want the range anxiety of seeing a charge bar under 50% always.
