It's only for the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf

Bosch is giving electric vehicle (EV) drivers a wireless charging option, and even new financing plans to help them afford it. 

Bosch Automotive Service Solutions teamed up with Evatran Group Inc. to offer a Level 2 240-volt wireless charging unit. It's only compatible with the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf for now, but will open up to other models later. 

Bosch recently announced its wired charging system, Power Max home charging. It only costs $449 while the new wireless system costs a whopping $3,000 -- but Bosch believes that convenience will be key to sales of the expensive wireless option.


“The main reason is convenience,” Kevin Mull, vice president of business development at Bosch Automotive Service Solutions told PluginCars. “We think this is a very viable future technology and over time, with advancements in technology, the price will start to come down.”

To help EV drivers who want the wired or wireless system, but can't afford it, Bosch is offering financing options. Option #1 includes $0 down with no monthly payments for 12 months if repaid in full in a year for charging stations that cost $1,000 or more. Option #2 offers $0 down and a five-year 2.99 percent loan on charging stations of $3,500 or more (including installation).

It's a word because the word is misused so often that it became mainstream as correct. For anyone with a proper education, they will not accept stupider as proper in spelling or grammatically. We all learned when we can add "-er" or not in middle and elementary school.

If you haven't noticed, even fabulosity is a word now.

I don't agree with the guy you're arguing with but that's basically the definition of how words are formed.

All words started out as things that people were saying before they were formally acknowledged as part of the language. In American English "stupider" has actually been a word for long enough that most people wouldn't even think about it. A bit longer and no one is going to care.

Sure, but that's like saying "ain't" is going be accepted. It's a real word for a while now too. It still will never be accepted.

As a general rule, you are not supposed to add "er" with words that has more than 1 syllable.

Please use stupider in your next paper you have to write and see the red pen fly.
