I took delivery about three weeks ago now. My previous car was a 2014 Infiniti Q50 hybrid AWD. It gave me a taste of what electrons can do. That thing was awesome in every respect. I loved that car.
Things have changed. My wife is now retired and I am trying to wean off customers from my side business. I do IT support for automotive retailers. I decided that maybe an EV was right for me. My wife has a fun car and my driving has been reduced. I only put 6K miles on my Q last year. I thought maybe a transportation appliance was right for me. The local dealer had two leftover 2020s in stock. Dealer discounts and factory rebates totaling ~$11,000. Then there is the Federal tax credit of $7,500. I had to take a look. I took one for a drive and thought "Hey. not bad. I could live with this". With all taxes and fees, a 72 month extended warranty minus all incentives and my trade, out of pocket came to About $18,000. Not bad. After three weeks with it it has really grown on me. I have started really enjoying this car. The smoothness, the quiet, the power delivery and the fact that I can preheat (or cool) the cabin is a big plus.
Then there is the extremely low maintenance costs, (the other car is a Mercedes) and the absence of the angst of owning an ICE powered car. You know, "what's that noise?, It is really cold today I'll have to take it easy until it warms up, Yikes, gas prices going up again" etc.
So, there's my story. I look forward to gaining more knowledge about the car while I'm here.
