Howdy, Northern Virginia Resident

I've been using low-power electric vehicles of various levels of slowness to get to-and-from work for the past 3 years.

Haven't tried anything above 2hp or $1,000 yet.

You must live close to work. Welcome to the forum. Maybe you could check out some of the low-budget EV conversions already posted here.

Exactly.
My previous job was less than a mile from home if I took a direct route using footpaths.
My current job is only 3 miles away.
