    I agree a lot of misinformation. I don’t think the government should be incentivizing EV cars but I’m not going to leave an opportunity to get some of my taxes back when I can. The car comes with a level 1 charger for free, level 2 charger cost $600 for the smart ones, but there’s a tax credit on those too, installed mine for free. Free charging at the big box stores. The batteries last longer then 10 years and can be rebuilt without replacing the whole pack. With gas in Hawaii costing me almost $5 a gallon for my truck, it’s a serious expense. We bought a used Camry hybrid for my wife a few years ago and I was happy with the 36 mpg, the car was over 10 years old and I ended up having to rebuild the battery pack, wasn’t hard or expensive, sold it for what I paid three years prior. When Toyota came out with a plug in hybrid version of the RAV4 we jumped at the opportunity, with the tax credit it’s the same cost as the hybrid version, gets 40 mpg on gas and 50 miles of EV range per charge. I just installed solar a few years ago because our electric is the most expensive in the US and the power goes out all the time, we have battery backup for the house now and produce excess power. We charge her car for free with solar and she’s getting 150 mpg average now, when the charge runs out the car continues on gas. Toyota hybrids are basically bulletproof, the design of the planetary gear system is genius and Toyota designed the pack on the car to have over 90% capacity after 10 years with a 150k warranty. In 10 years we will save over $10k on gas, It also gets to 60 in under 6 seconds, she loves the passing power. I love my gm truck with its 6 liter small block, I need a truck and it’s pretty reliable, it now costs $120 to fill and gets 15 mpg and it hurts. Her car is basically free to drive, is fun and perfect for her commute and our longer road trips. Most EV people are idiots, they have no idea what it takes to be “green” they buy new cars every few years for appearances and charge with fossil fuels. They don’t have any idea how big of a solar PV system they would need to actually offset their cars energy and they charge at night so it’s not sunlight. Tesla’s are horribly built, unreliable POS and Tesla doesn’t want you to be able to fix it. That’s not the case with my wife’s Toyota, and I’m seriously considering the Ford lightning, especially if gas keeps going up. For us we are saving money and achieving energy independence. I don’t mind learning how to fix new shit, electric stuff is easy. The heat pump system is stupid complicated.
