    Incredablehefey & Imaginex20,

    Sorry, but we're full up on those years and models, plus a few other folks are wait listed. I think at this point we're only a few weeks away from releasing production hardware and software. I'll post the group's results of the tests this week or next.

    You can see some of those results already in the quotes on our homepage: https://www.smartpedal.com.

    I got the newer version and tested. My mpg for the first tank(441 mile) is 57.1mpg, the best average mpg ever in my life. Although the weather has been amiable to prius during the period (upper 60F to mid 70F), I've never got this high mpg. My best mpg was around 55 mpg last spring. My average speed was 39mph meaning I drove between 50 and 60 mph. I drove in echo with mode 3. I'm so happy with the result. I'm trying mode 2. I will share the result soon.

    daiske99,

    Awesome news to read. To some up your last two reports:
    • In mode 3 your Prius generated 57.1 mpg at an average speed of 39 mph.
    • In mode 2, your Prius got 54.2 at 37 mph.
    What did you think of the driving experience of both modes?

    Marc

    Well... In terms of the driving experiences, I can't see the difference. As you can see the average mph is slower but mpg is lower. Strange... I think I prefer the mode 3...

    You and your car of awesomeness were the first actually.

    [Context for others: Raytheeagle and I own identical red 2010 Prii.]

    The Barcelona Red was a fantastic color and still glad I chose it:).

    Always nice to see another one at Smart Pedal Headquarters (y).

    Hi Bobzchemist,
    The site began taking pre-orders last week. If you want to order one, I can make sure it gets to you before June.

    You asked before about a group deal for Priuschat members. If a few people are interested in pre-ordering now, I can discount the Smartpedal Advanced (which is what the group is testing) from $249 to $129. This will pretty much be a one-time deal for the product launch.

    Separate from all that, we'll be giving the active testers a full production unit--so you folks don't need to order. (y)
    (But of course you can tell your family and friends that _they_ should.)

    Smartpedal isn't just for Prii, either. The Ford and Hold pre-order sections will go live next week. Meanwhile, Toyota and Nissan pre-orders are live now.

    Here's last weeks result:

    Not a bad result considering I was going mostly 65-70 mph most of the time;).

    I was at 48 mpg before installation.

    So good improvement (y)!

    Not sure if cycling through the display options would get you back or not.

    Just 50 k on your odometer :)!

    I just clicked 153 k miles on Friday(y).

    Hi Tande,

    Thanks for your interest. Here's the promo code to order: PRIUSCHAT. Other Priuschat members can use this code too.

    We set the retail for Smartpedal Advanced at $219, not $249. Using that promo code will save $90, making the price $129.

    Included is a one-year limited warranty. If you are interested, the extended warranty increases the total warranty length to three years and is $20.

    One important thing: For the Prius, we currently only have production units available in May for the Gen3 (2010-2015). The Gen4 units are about 3 months out.

    Marc
