I was T boned last week and my car is a write off Upside...after a day in hospital getting tested and imaged I am not a write off...just very sore.
I had not planned on purchasing at this time as my car suited me just fine. A replacement for it would be an Audi A4 station wagon style. My old one was V6 and I think the new are 4 cylindar.
I also have had Mercedes B Class and BMW X1 for the kids...still have the X1. So those vehicles remain serious contenders.
But I am also considering going to electric. One daughter has a Prius hybrid...good on gas but doesn't feel all that solid to drive.
The Teslas have a wider driving range but not much room for bee boxes and are pricier than what I want to pay (around the 100k range in Canada).
So on the radar now are the fully electric BMW i3 and the hybrid Chevy Volt. I am leaning towards going BEV...fully electric.
Any input from folks driving electric vehicles would be appreciated. The BMW costs about 0.02$ a kilometer. Cost...just over 60K
