    To me, the math doesn't yet justify an EV.

    I would still only go hybrid or plug in hybrid. Despite the propaganda in many areas of the country chargers are not available (plus time penalty if they are) An example is I looked at a road trip to the Cherohala and home in a day. First chargers over there that are not linked to a hotel room....bzzt. So that easy day trip turns into 2. Even if available add an hour for charging vs 10 minutes for gas. I met some Teslese and they were saying how it is not a concern. However they were Michigan yuppies where the chargers are more common and a long drive for them is to Starbucks or the airport. No thanks still.

    Serious question : suppose you dumbass and run out of battery in your sparkmobile on the highway... You can't just grab a gas can and hitchhike it to a gas station and back.

    I suppose your only option would be a tow truck?

    I haven't been in that situation in 30-something years, but it still seems like a drawback.

    The modern world is too fast paced for me, anyhow. I'm fine with this plan, as long as there will be snacks.
