For those who is in need of a family car soon, go check out the rav 4 ev. They are leasing for about 445 taxed with no downpayment, plus unlimited miles and 2500 cash back. Car has a 100 miles range and uses a tesla drivetrain. They are also super rare too as there are only 2600. Get one before Labor Day. Save the planet save your wallet win win. Car has a 51k Msrp, you get it for about 33k

Hard to say since less than 1% of the Prius batteries have died. Tesla rebuilds them down the street on theirs.

Plus that's the same lame argument from guys on Fox News, get some better ones

It's a valid argument though, that people always try and dodge by saying, "That's what so-and-so said, get a better rebuttal."




Besides, electric is boring.

oh okay... cause that SAVE THE PLANET part caught my eye, that's all.

and a gasoline powered cheap car is probably cheaper in the long run probably, but noone asked about that.

I have to be out there in the land of fruits and nuts next week, screaming at all the smug Prius drivers. This thread reminded me how much I hate that state.

Keep in mind a loaded mini SUV cost about 27k. Once you add in the other costs, you basically come out the same as buying a normal SUV with benefits such as Hov pass, zero emission etc. I know some people are sensitive over their politics. My post has nothing to do with it, it's just a good deal for the pkg.

Hmmmmm I bought my new 2012 jeep grand Cherokee limited AWD fully loaded with leather, premium stereo, sun roof, Nav etc with tow package for $32K. I average 22 mpg and it tows 5000 lbs no problem. $33k toy SUV? No thanks.

Perfect for the typical nor cal socially conscious x gen couple with 1.3 children.

I want a fiat 500 convertible electric!
