I would but they’re just so expensive

I wish the government would give money to us millenials that are trying to save the earth. They could just tax the boomers more they’re all rich

Not interested. That said, unfortunately, there might not be another option before long. (Unless you're buying older used cars.)

Weren’t we supposed to have electric hovering devices already a la George Jetson?

I hear electricity is free too. And that hovering is cheap.

re: Would you ever consider buying a electric car
Bit of a chicken and egg problem: most areas don't have sufficient infrastructure to easily support electric vehicles without significant shifts in the driving habits of owners; most areas have zero incentive to build out sufficient infrastructure until there is a critical mass of electric vehicles on the road.

I consider myself fairly tech forward, and I didn't think I could justify an electric vehicle when I purchased a few months ago. Went with a regenerative hybrid instead.

It's a shame there aren't more plug in capable hybrids being offered. That would actually bridge the gap well, pairing usefulness now with an incentive to build out charging capacity.

Sure.

The technology will just continue to improve along with battery life.

I have had one for a couple of years. Never thought I would buy one, but I have enjoyed it. If you take long road trips, be prepared for a more extended trip. If you mostly commute in town, it is a no-brainer.

Yeah. As they get better at least. It has basically nothing to do with gas or gas prices, just that some of them are cool.

The life of a battery in use never improves though.

Definitely.

I couldn't manage one right now, but as a second car or sports car it makes sense.

No.

I don’t want to have to make sure and charge my car every evening so i can drive it the next day.

Yes. Seriously want a Rivian - as soon as they fix the goofy way it looks from the front.

My fear is that I tend to hold on to cars for a while - 10 years at least - and my cell phone battery life has taught me a thing or two about relying on batteries.

EVs may have 300 mile range at first, but bet that drops significantly over the years. With the recharge time like it is - an EV just isn’t a viable option for me or worth the risk.

the problem I see with this is in cities, lots of people live in apartments or multi unit dwellings where they might not have a spot for a charger.

The city would need charging stations lining th blocks.

I think they should have some sort of gas backup so you could switch if need to.

Yes, but there needs to be a few more options on the market that could get 400+ miles on a charge.

Scruffy is looking backwards.

Want to get an older vehicle without all the bells and whistles.

100%. The only solution is to use a charging station once (or twice) a week, depending on your commute.
