I'd like to go all EV, but I'll have to wait a bit for a used vehicle or for one that would suit all our purposes. The Bolt is really close and I think not that bad on rough roads, but I would probably still have to hang on to the Highlander. I'm sure that vehicles will be coming along, but for now the Spark EV fills all our driving around town needs and lets me wait a bit to see what's coming.
Yeah, that's kind of the way I feel. My gasmobile only gets used when either both me AND the wife need to be out of the house at the same time, or when we drive over 80 miles roundtrip - about 3000 miles a year. Otherwise we share the Spark. I'm thinking of getting a used bolt, but really don't need to yet. I think as more come off of lease and glut the market the price will go down even more. And if we got a Bolt, then I'd only use the gasmobile for trips over 200 miles, which is maybe once a year.
I'm thinking of getting a used PHEV (plug in) instead. Fine for a lot of our town driving (coupled with the Spark EV) and available as a gas mobile for longer trips. So, Driving all-electric except for trips of over 80 miles.
