Hi Patrick,

The RAV4 EV is the best apple-to-apples comparison we have right now. And again purchase cost is much higher now because the RAV4 EV's are in such demand, and the supply is very limited.

The Tesla is much faster than the Elise. And the Tesla is faster and less expensive than a Ferrari. Remember, apples-to-apples; and more importantly, EV's have to get into production for costs to come down. You could compare the Leaf to the Versa, or even the Leaf with the Prius, I suppose.

Are you going to ignore my numbers, after asking for them?
Sincerely, Neil
