I have an EV but I also have other vehicles. I wonder if this is the case for other ppl too. I use the ev as my daily commuter because of the low cost to run.

When I got my first ev I had another ice. However, I quickly realized I really like ev, so I switched other ice to ev too.

Significantly cheaper cost to run is great, but I also like the performance of EVs too, instant torque everywhere is really nice. I find the ac, heater, heated seats, heated steering wheel, all come on much quicker than ice, which is very convenient.

What I find surprising is that my range is very good even in temperatures hovering close to 0c or slightly below, even with winter tires. I still get consistently over the posted range in both cars. (leaf posted range 240, I get over 260km). I am expecting some further drop when we get to - 10-20c as others predicted, but it appears it won't be as massive as originally anticipated.

Why do you need another EV thread when there's already a few threads about ownership and discussion which you state is the entire purpose of this thread.

I own an EV, and this thread is wholesomely unnecessary and terribly conceived.

I wished I had more than 1 downvote to give.
