You could give me a brand new electric car for free and I wouldn't use it.

Either electric or gas. The first 60 miles are electric, then it switches to gas. I hardly ever drive 60 miles in a day, so I’m usually on electric. It’s quiet, zippy, and I don’t miss stinky gas stations.

I wouldn’t own an electric vehicle since I can’t go too far out of town with it.

I don't have any place to hook up an electric car.

That is an issue for millions of people.

Right now...all gas. I have a deposit on the forthcoming Tesla Model Y & the Volvo XC40 recharge. Both vehicles are about a year away. No matter what....our next car is 100% electric.

Cool. You are lucky you can charge it. Good thing you don’t live in a high rise apartment with on street parking.
Tesla Y? XC40? My next might be a hybrid. Extension cords suck.
Hey! Inspend 9 grand switch from oil heat H/w to a 95% efficient tankless gas system.
I have a window A/c that occasionally gets used. C

Directly, electric as it's a Chevy Volt. But "source" is hard to know. I would guess coal since that's where most of the upper Midwest's energy comes from. Often times it's petrol as this electric car has a gas generator and 10 gallon fuel tank on board. Hoping GM uses the same tech in a bigger vehicle soon.

So it can be recharged with an outlet and as needed a generator maybe kick it for charging. I thought Chevy was discontinuing the Volt.

Yes, and that's what makes it awesome, electric for typical days but with the on board it has a 350-400 mile range. And of course can just fill up the petrol and keep going.

Chevy did is continue it, along with all other sedans.

They're a good car to get used though as the price is better and by records the batteries last much longer than expected.

The Volt advocates are lobbying GM to use the same tech in a SUV format.

My friend who is GM salesman told me the Volt was Chevys no. 1 repurchase vehicle. Yet they canned it <shaking head>.

Do the batteries ever need replacement?

I have a 2017 Volt and love it! I would happily have purchased more in the future. Very sad to see them discontinued. The advantage of being able to switch to gas to take long trips so I’m never stuck charging the car is comforting, but I usually am all electric.

When we bought we figured on replacing them in 10 years. But we've since learned that they last longer and that there are ways to replace certain cells rather than th whole shabang.
