    I do the same. Why put 3,000+ miles on my car when I can rent a new (or near new) MiniVan (Family Trip) got a few $$$

    For the Electrics and Hybrids, they have their place and are getting better quality. They are not as "environmental" as most of the users think they are.
    I am not sure how the states are going to add road taxes to electric cars? Current the tax is part of the cost of fuel, but with less petrol vehicles, and more electrics they will have to make up the difference someplace. Will there be an extra fee to renew the license plates?

    At the higher altitude around here in Denver, the electric vehicles make some sense because they don't loose power due to altitude.

    I put my $100 in to reserve a CyberTruck. If they actually have a 500 mile range and can rip a 10-second 1/4 mile, and drive itself, that would be pretty cool.
    With a truck bed, could throw a generator back there if needed ;)

      We are already going to save @160 a month, about half the payment. I like buying with cash but were saving it for house upgrades. So it's a wash, instead of gas being burned in the end there's a car. The prices on these were going up in the 2 weeks we were looking, also saw on Car and Driver Chev is offering 0% on em if they're CPO. I called the dealer and GM financial and got no response.
      Hate chevy but I hope it works out

      I am definitely no expert in EVs, but I seem to remember reading a lot of bad press on the Volt.

      The bad press was cost. They lost money on every one. Reliability is very good, no way I'd ever purchase a chevy but I was impressed after researching. Saw some with close to 500k.
      But again, no way I'd have an import in my driveway, and didn't want Tesla prices.
