I think its a great car. Its a REAL car, unlike the Leaf, which is terrrrrible (handling, looks, and money leaves the country etc...) BUT, but...

BEVs remind me of 8 tracks...kind of a stopgap between gasoline and hydrogen...

And I could never drive one, as its a 150 miles to visit the parents, and road trips are OUT. You need two vehicles to do what any one gasoline car can...

plus, there is no such thing as a zero emmissions car. Its like robbing Peter to pay Paul. Emissions from the car, or emissions from the power plant...take your pick I guess. Plus, I know there must be tons of extra emmisions from building the battery, which requires them to be shipped around the world to several manufacturers for completion...

There continues to be no free lunch.
