If you're thinking of an electric vehicle, this is the one! It's easy to charge from a regular plug in my garage. It charges fully in 8 hours. I haven't been to a gas station in 3 months! It is also incredibly quiet. You won't miss the roar of the motor and will enjoy hearing the great sound system it has. It has been ideal for me as a commuting car.
Good bye gas, hello electric!

If you have a daily commute of less than 30 miles round trip, this is the car for you. If you are tired of paying a local gas station the ever-changing prices of gas, this is the car for you. If you just love technology, this is the car for you. Yes, it's not a tesla, but if you don't have the $100,000 to plop down on one, then get this one and you will have an insight into what it is like to own a tesla....it's pretty awesome!!
Possibly your new best friend!

Ok, let's address the elephant in the room: range. On an 80% charge I average between 40-50 miles and 50-60 miles on a 100% charge, in city driving conditions. If this does not meet your round trip commute needs or you don't have the option of charging at your destination then this is probably not the car for you. If you fall within these parameters then read on....
We drive this car about 600-700 miles a month. If compared to the city MPG of our gas compact sedan that's about $70 in savings a month which is half the cars payment and we only put $1500 down! I work with people who commute 36 miles a day, and spend more than my payment just on gas. We live in a condo complex and the outlet I use to charged is billed to my HOA!
