LOL. Yeah, not a compromise I am willing to make either really.

The difficult thing about EVs is that most people simply don't do the math on how they use the vehicles they have and what they really cost.

Clearly, EVs can still be stupid expensive in the wrong use case. In my case, I expect it to be more of a wash, but moreover, I am now driving a car that I can enjoy driving all year round. Had I purchased a used Leaf, I would absolutely be saving money right now compared to my other cars.
