I would love another EV. I miss having the ForkenSwift (well, actually, I still have its rusted out carcass, but that's getting stripped and sent to the crusher some day).

Probably no EV beater (winter or otherwise), because most of my driving tends to be on the highway, with trip lengths that are often out of range of lower end EV's (especially in the winter). I bike around town 3.5 seasons.

Considering budget: each of my last 3 beaters has been a thousand bucks each. That's also slightly out of range for a used EV.
Latest mods test: 15 mods = 15% MPG improvement: A-B test, 2007 Honda Civic 1.8L, 5-speed
