I own a new Nissan Leaf which cost me $23,000 after rebates. I have solar panels on my house rooftop so I am not dependent on fossil fuels.
The car charges at night in my garage for free. It gets 85 miles per charge which is enough for a normal commute. Maintenance is virtually non-existent the first 2 years. I have A/C and heat and all the usual
bells & whistles that are on my Prius. So I think I have answered all of your complaints. Oh, and did I
mention that I can keep up with Mustangs ... It helps to get out of tight corners sometimes.
