what do you think?


If the Hyundai Kona EV works for you I see no reason to wait if you want a new car today. Personally I would look for a discounted lease and then see what is available in 2023.

The only new electric CUVs on the horizon are the Ford Mach-E and the VW ID4 and both are sold out until 2022.

The Audi Q4e might go on sale next year or Audi might decide to delay a year to sell more EVs in Europe to avoid huge CO2 fines. As of right now it is still labelled as a concept not a production vehicle.

The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Prime is also a very strong candidate with 40 miles of EV range for city uses and then the hybrid system for road trips.

The longer you wait the less chance you will get the $7500 federal tax credit.
