Slightly off-topic, but I didn’t want to start a new thread for just a note. Wired had a preview of the new Polestar 2 EV and made brief comparisons to the Tesla and Taycan, two cars I know Leo is/has been interested in.
I also know that Leo is planning on a trip to Germany, and wanted to mention the great trip Volvo (Polestar’s “parent” company) provided me when I bought their XC40 last year. Their Overseas Delivery (OSD) program flies you (and a friend) over to Sweden, puts you up for a night, gives you a tour of the factory and museum, and insures you for up to two weeks of driving, all included at no added charge.
I took the ferry to Germany and drove around Hamburg, Koln, the Rhine river and the Black Forest, then over to Neuschwanstein and the lakes around Salzburg, before dropping the car off in Munich for delivery back to the US. Beautiful trip and it was an experience driving there.
Not really recommending the Polestar (hear it’s best to lease their earlier hybrid cars because of the complexity of the engine), but the program does touch a lot of Leo’s bases.
