The EV this is a chain. Like, to me a "new car" is 2012. I see my next car as being EV or Hybrid at least, probably a second hand 2016 bought in 2021. The manufacturers are getting on board, most of them do EVs now. We just have to wait for the rich people to buy them first. Not ideal.

Don't think that's true at all. Been following the EV threads on boards out of mild temptation, and they're all having great success with second hand EV's. At worst people say the battery degradation is down to 90% after 4 or 5 years

Interesting. I’d be looking for something twice the capacity. I think the new ones are 60kwh but would be waiting a while for any salvage auctions for the innards.

What’s the range on a fully charged second hand 24kwh Nissan Leaf?

I get 130-140 km but I do 70+ a day and charge every night
