Dummy wouldn't be seen dead in it so no dummy.
I was referring to crash test dummies. Had to look it up. So there was none in the video?

wow, $10k for 4 year-old Bolt? I might as well shop for a used >200 mile BEV at that price or take over a short-term lease and buy it out.
Read the fine print: if you buy you can sell after a year with no Ontario rebate implications.
If you lease and get rid of the car before lease end, you have to pay back the rebate.

He leased four years and rebate entitlement is fully completed over the first three years.

By short term lease i mean a lease term about to draw to a close but thanks for reminding me to make sure of rebate eligibility completion.

That dashes my hopes for a decent Honda BEV offering that isn't limited to 80 miles.

Hey now! My first new car was a 75 Rabbit I bought for under $5k. At the time it was one of the only FWD cars (along with the Civic, which could be had for $3k). Fond memories - & if I'd managed to grab an e-Golf I would have come full circle.

It's supposed to be patterned after the original Civic, but I don't really see that either.

A 2017 QC leaf at only 2k more now would seem to be worth it over this smart. It really needs to be about 15k for its constraints.

If you can wait, 2019 Leaf ( and other cars ) will have a new dense,cheaper lithium ion battery from LG that will give 60 kwh and give at least 225 mile range.
thats good news. I read somewhere that LG and GM are together building batteries exclusive for electric cars and research on larger capacity batteries. I would suspect they will get first piece of the bread.

Several solutions are available, instead of argue mention problem and collaborate on a plan to mitigate.
Also how much gas is being saved, enough to buy more kms on the lease?
Are you planning to buy the car out, how does the math work?
Perhaps trade the SUV for another EV either now or future, save on gas and repurpose to highest mileage traveler?
Lies, damned lies, statistics and alternative facts
