what do you think?
What are your top priorities for an EV?

I'm seeing used Chevy Bolts for ~$15k these days. In Oregon it's possible to get $2,500 off that if income is "modest". The Bolt new is going for ~$25k these days, but no federal tax credit.

I'd probably go Niro over Kona if it were me. It looks better and I think has a bit more interior volume.

The RAV4 Prime is very interesting. 300hp, 40 mile range, 40 MPG in hybrid mode.
