Since this is such a geek rich target environment, I thought I'd start a chat about electric cars. As of this year, more and more BEV (battery only electrics like Tesla, Nissan Leaf, and Honda Clarity BEV) and PHEV (plug-in hybrids like the Chevy Volt, Toyota Prius Prime, and my new acquisition the Honda Clarity PHEV) are hitting the market. I am coming from a 80's, 90's, and early 2000's Chevy Suburban background to Toyota Prii (official Prius plural), and now the Clarity PHEV (yes, even in the capital of fossil fuel production - Midland TX). The Prius is a great car, but it is hybrid only until you get to the new Prime, and I loved getting 40-50mpg routinely. I have a client, who gets paid a lot by oil companies from drilling and producing oil on his property, who also has Prius and told his kids "I sell it to 'em, but I damned sure don't have to buy it back!" However, I have been following the electric car development, and we are just too far apart and too few charging stations to go "all electric" out here, because the very best can only get 200-220 miles (Tesla), down to only 87 miles for the Honda Clarity BEV. For us out here the sweet spot is the PHEV. The Prius Prime (like the Hyundai Ionic and a few others) can only do 25 miles all electric, but then it's hybrid chops really kick in and it can do around 600 miles on a tank of gas. The Volt is the PHEV champ with 53 miles all electric and 370 miles on gas. My Honda Clarity PHEV can do 47 miles all electric and another 300 miles on a small (7gal) tank - more like 280 to be safe. Why'd I pick the Honda Clarity? - mid-size sedan like an Accord - 5 adults - and Acura quality interior treatments - just much nicer to drive than the Volt or Prius Prime. Thanks to the 47 mile range no fills up in this first week of ownership, unlike a Prime that would be on the very edge of its commute limit. However, it has a trunk, not a hatch, so versatility is much lower. Oh yeah, the $7500 federal tax credit covering more than the down payment was another incentive... Anyway - any other electric car drivers out there in TabletPCReview land?
