Precisely.
I wasn't going to buy a nearly $40,000 car that could only go less than 100 miles on a charge, takes all day recharge.
But I might buy it for about 15% of its MSRP about 7 years later.
My 2011 nissan leaf is the newest car that I have ever bought by far and may likely be the newest car I ever buy.
