When I say new car I mean new to me. I would only be spending a few grand out of pocket when I add the value of the Prius, $4-5k, +4ksce rebate used EV or PHEV.

Iím also factoring in money saved via having pure EV range for my daily commute saving $6 a gallon gas. As well as monthly saving being in SCE prime tou plan. Lowers my overall electricity bill.
