And it's Goodbye from me

Recommended Posts

Alan, I was thinking of an appropriate comment, but you got there before me.

EVs are the destination. Hybrids are just a stepping stone, but they’re still the best compromise right now.

I still agree, but lots of people were saying that when the first Prius arrived in 2000 - and it's what I said to people who asked about my Prius when I got my first one in 2002.

Yep - but the stepping stones are a little too far apart for me at the moment.

IMO Hybrids and PHVs are a safe island where lots of people are gathering at the moment.

Almost 12 months in with our Prius PHV and still more than happy with it. Maybe a full EV in the future, but currently we are achieving an average of 110+ mpg with home charging (30+ miles on EV then hybrid at 75+ mpg) and grabbing top-ups as practical - mainly shopping centres with free charge points. 

No range issues and low running costs. (Plus an affordable vehicle when bought at 12 months/10000 miles old when compared to a new EV).

Cheers
