You guys see the vid of a guy blowing up his Tesla?

I might do the same for my '12 Leaf-- basically just a local car now. What they don't tell you about EVs: winter sucks your battery; your battery will degrade over time; the faster you go, the quicker your battery drains; it cannot be your primary driver; and, if you want to replace your Leaf battery, it's over $8,500 now.

Bought mine used, knew all of the above: in my situation an EV works and has paid for itself in fuel savings. However, when the battery is toast, wtf will I do with the car? What fool will put $8,500 into a 10 y/o car that they paid $8,500 for?

Only green thing about an EV-- no oil changes. That's it.

Wish we could get some European cars over here. Drove a VW Up, diesel, for two weeks. My god what a fun car and the MPG was insane-- 55mpg.
