None. Planning on getting a Tesla Model S Plaid.
FIRST OFF – huge mistake – creating propriety charging adapters/means
was the biggest blunder ever. Make these vehicles plug in to regular
120V receptacles. We already have the infrastructure – creating a whole
new infrastructure to charge these vehicles consumes a huge amount of
energy which negates the benefits of the EV for an extra amount of time.
This also limits the consumer base.
I want a Tesla .
the Rav4 Prime had a crazy dealer markup a few months ago….about $25k markup in Phoenix
Why do they make the leaf look so lame
Any budget? Maybe in your little bubble but not in reality
Don’t buy electric vehicles. Like blood diamonds, electric car batteries are blood batteries. https://youtu.be/RFHvq-8np1o
I like electric cars but the time spend to charge is my draw back especially during road trips. I have a BMW X1 which I spend $55000 for it but with gas prices high I still don’t care cos on road trips I spend less than 3 mins to fill up. As much as I love electric cars… is not for me now perhaps in the coming years. But for now I love my 2022 BMW X1. Electric cars can wait.
It's not price on charging that's a main worry for EV owners, it's the country infrastructure charging points set up for users that it's a problem for mass owners .
Excellent job! Being 6’10” I have limited options but I’m looking at the Tesla 3.
I'll give you several reasons you Narcissistically, holier than thou Hippocrates shouldn't buy an electric car. More than two-thirds of the world’s cobalt production comes from the Democratic Republic of Congo, 20 percent of which makes up a lithium-ion EV battery. 73 percent of the Congolese population, equaling 60 million people, lived on less than $1.90 a day, and children as young as four are the ones who are forced to do the majority of the mining. Children living in hell on Earth so YOU can drive your electric vehicles. An awful human cost in wretched Congo cobalt mining so that you can save the planet with your clean energy crusade. You make me sick, claiming you care about the little guy and all the meanwhile condemning hundreds to their deaths. So go on and drive your death mobiles I hope you're proud of yourselves?😠
what about vf8 from VinFast? YOu might look into that…
Andy, great job on this compendium of EVs under $50K. It’s very irritating when the dealership charges $10K over msrp to nullify our $7500 tax credit. It’s the same as no tax credit so I’m better off buying a Tesla!
Great content! A lot of information and details about really different types of #Evs! Thank you for sharing! ⚡🔌🚘
Are you sure that Polestar has Apple CarPlay?
Looking at all this new electric automakers, I think Elon is still very much conservative with Tesla cars. The looks, the accessories (LED LIGHTS ) interior and exterior.
There's No Dealer Markup…lol… Because the "Dealer Markup" Goes directly to Tesla !
REALITY CHECK –
In case you were thinking of buying hybrid or an electric car…
Ever since the advent of electric cars, the REAL cost per mile of those things has never been discussed. All you ever heard was the mpg in terms of gasoline, with nary a mention of the cost of electricity to run it.
At a neighborhood BBQ I was talking to a neighbor, a BC Hydro Executive. I asked him how that renewable thing was doing. He laughed, then got serious.
If you really intend to adopt electric vehicles, he pointed out, you had to face certain realities. For example, a home charging system for a Tesla requires 75 amp service. The average house is equipped with 100 amp service. On our small street (approximately 25 homes), the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than three houses with a single Tesla each. For even half the homes to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly over-loaded.
This is the elephant in the room with electric vehicles. Our residential infrastructure cannot bear the load. So, as our genius elected officials promote this nonsense, not only are we being urged to buy these things and replace our reliable, cheap generating systems with expensive new windmills and solar cells, but we will also have to renovate our entire delivery system! This later "investment" will not be revealed until we're so far down this dead end road that it will be presented with an 'OOPS…!' and a shrug.
If you want to argue with a green person over cars that are eco-friendly, just read the following. Note: If you ARE a green person, read it anyway. It's enlightening.
Eric test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors and he writes, "For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine." Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9-gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles.
It will take you 4.5 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.
According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned, so I looked up what I pay for electricity.
I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh. 16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 Mpg = $0.10 per mile.
The gasoline powered car costs about $25,000 while the Volt costs $46,000 plus. So the Government wants us to pay twice as much for a car, that costs more than seven times as much to run, and takes three times longer to drive across the country.
WAKE UP NORTH AMERICA!!!!!!!….
Cybertruck dual motor $49k
Ev are the first step into owning nothing and be happy. That's why leasing is so cheap. When government loses revenue from fuel tax what taxes you think are coming on utility Bill's.
Not on a Fixed Income or Minimum Wage.
If unknown reliability wasn't a factor, I'd personally go with the Ioniq5. But as we all know, higher charging speeds can cause damage to batteries, and frankly I don't trust that HMC has enough data to know how 350kw(if they are ever actually capable) will degrade the batteries. Tesla has so much data and I trust their battery technology and BMS more than the others right now.
I have a Toyota with a manual transmission an gas with a automatic is too slow when it comes to merge into traffic. I like the ability of an EV to accelerate quickly when to comes to merging onto the interstate.
I have a question for you dip wipe auto engineers. How is it that an alternator can charge a battery but you cannot find a way for electric cars to recharge themselves. What is it? Something you already have but will wait a few years for it to come out. Then you can charge another 5 grand on a 50k car that is worth only 20k. Screw all others huh?
Went to look at stealership, they are adding hardship fee along with just trying to get hybrid Rav4. I'm just going to have to suck it up and get the Y even though it going to be basically 65k.
I currently drive a used 2015 Nissan Leaf. It is still running great getting me to and from work. It is also good for hauling bulky yard equipment without messing up the interior.
I plan on upgrading my used 2015 Nissan Leaf to a used Tesla Modle 3.
If Elon Musk would be really concerned about our future, he would sell his Model 3 for $20k so people with a normal income can afford one, but in the US only the rich can afford EVs!!
Some great choices here. I test drove the Polestar 2 and its stablemate, the Volvo XC40 electric, and for anyone looking closely at the Polestar, I would suggest finding the extra $ for the Volvo. Its a far more luxurious proposition.
#3 Extra cost to install 240v circuit in garage for fast charging….
WHAT ABOUT RECALL?
What about the insurance cost?
I like the Mustang mack
The RAV4 seems to be the logical answer for our next purchase. NEED 90% or so of the time is suburban commute to downtown work. Our family, especially my 11 year old, is in love with Tesla dream. Maybe our $$ is best spent with RAV4 now and holding out for next few generations of Tesla products? We are a road trip type family. 4 at home now + two young adult family members – 1000 miles away and another in same town. Thoughts anyone?
Like many on the net, you note Tax credit effecting the price of the vehicle. WRONG!!! A tax credit is a tax credit ONLY. And ONLY if you qualify for the whole amount on your taxes. Nuff said
Would have loved to see the Toyota bz4x on this list. I've been looking at EVs and leaning towards that once it's released this year. I really liked the Mach E as well and will try to do a test drive of the Ioniq5
Explain the BLACK CAR on the LEFT of the thumbnail? Please? I did not see it in your video!
Elon's the man but compared to a lot of these other vehicles the Tesla is pretty damn ugly. Never liked the styling from the get go, he needs to change his stuff up. Look what KIA's done with their logo and their vehicles, they look tight.
You obviously don’t know what a budget is. Thanks for nothing.
(oo)The Alternative to plastic/petroleum-based products is hemp various different materials substances resources for it makes over 26,000 different things. It has even been proven to be 10 times stronger than steel and 30% lighter stronger and lighter than concrete, stronger and lighter than brick. Far more versatile making the design possibilities practically limitless, at the same time being easier to work with on-site' equally as amazing 1 acre of hemp! Can produce enough bio fossil fuel to fuel 10,000 vehicles for a year at about a dollar per gallon. One of the major differences is hemp bio fossil fuel only releases the same amount of carbon dioxide unoxygenated air per mile as a person does when the exhale versus coal, oil, and gas. Which release tens of millions of years worth of petrified death per mile. The real winning sales pitch" is 1 acre of hemp! Produces 3 to 4 times the amount of oxygen as a acre of trees at the same time sucks in 3 to 4 times the amount of carbon dioxide, greenhouse gases, deadly unoxygenated air as a acre of trees plus it rejuvenates and replenishes the soil back to Garden of paradise type of quality after every harvest even if the landscape has been previously stripped, robbed, and depleted from overharvesting things such as cotton and corn that has been marinating in petroleum-based fertilizer. Not to mention it has the same nutritional value as rice, corn, wheat, barley, and milk combined is one so we can easily deal with people being over fed and undernourished In layman's terms we can rebuild faster much more efficiently at a fraction of the cost in half the time of what we are doing today without leaving any excess poison is toxic waste behind. In other words we can manufacture, mass-produce, distribute products that every country, city, and continent is going to be happy to spend top dollar. Example, hemp clothing distributes moisture across the body more efficiently than any other material leaving a person feeling, smelling, and smiling their best even under the most extreme circumstances don't forget about the limitless design possibility plus it promotes good respiratory function so if a person has asthma, allergies or other breathing complications just by wearing its clothing you will alleviate those symptoms with the potential of diminishing them all together. Hemp has even been successfully grown on radiative soil. So in theory if we grow hemp along the shores of our rivers and lakes we will greatly improve upon the quality of that water. Nonetheless we definitely will improve upon and maintain the quality of our air, water, foods, landscapes, working/ living environment, habitat, and every day home products to the highest degree that is humanly possible by producing 3 to 4 times more oxygen per acre than we do currently. At the same time sucking in 3 to 4 times the amount of carbon monoxide greenhouse gases un oxygenated air per acre as we do currently, as a added bonus everywhere we grow it we will be rejuvenating and replenishing the soil back to Garden of paradise type quality even if the landscape has been previously stripped, robbed, and depleted of all its value from overharvesting things such as cotton and corn Keep in mind America has about 800,000 acres of available farming land. So again we have the manpower, woman influence, technology, resources, substances, capability, and technology to create clean high-paying jobs from coast-to-coast that will improve upon and maintain the quality of life in such a way.That will gradually consistently, constantly, systematically almost effortlessly and naturally thus allowing each person's generation to become stronger, smarter, healthier, happier, better off physically, mentally, financially, possibly spiritually then the previous generation. With that type of leadership, loyalty, and devotion to one's self and country People may start finally having jobs, products, power sources that will allow them to be healthy and wealthy enough to live enjoy their life all the way through out retirement. You can't do that would dirty low-paying jobs. That come from outdated power sources, inferior materials, poisonous, toxic substances, pesticides, and chemicals that never change their killing composition which means whether it's solid, liquid, or burnt off in to our airways atmosphere as a vapor is always going to be poisonous, debilitating, deadly to the body at the same time polluting, corrupting, and devastating to mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world. The bottom line you cannot promote life by doing business with materials, resources, and substances that have been scientifically classified, religiously verified as petrified death or worse. Think about this because it's a simple logic basic concept if life is not free why the hell would death be any cheaper. I guarantee it's not so would you like to know how souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on the end results of dirty low-paying jobs. Would you like to know how souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on a diminished quality of life? A better question what do you think the spiritual cost is to one's own soul and spirit living dying to the lowest standards of quality opposed to the alternative which is the highest standards of quality? Case closed. Mercy, forgiveness, and spiritual welfare are not changing these facts. Protecting, carrying, and compensating any whimpering, whining, crying souls and spirits that are freely connected to a life that is not living up to the pleasure, potential, responsibility of femininity and masculinity. You're either part of the world solutions or you are exacerbating the world's problems either way there is no playing it safe in the middle every one of us is being held spiritually accountable for each and every moment.I Laugh, smile, grin, chuckle with confidence I say now a wish and pray for my soul and spirit to be held spiritually accountable to the statements I proclaim to the way I'm living personally professionally. I guarantee you never see hear another body, man, woman in power, persons of legal, religious authority, leaders ever freely validate the statements they proclaim with that level of certainty. One reason could be the don't have the best interest of the majority of the population's needs at heart. Another reason could be they cum from a bloodline of cowards! One is genetic hereditary the other is simply a generic learned behavior either way it is physically, mentally, and spiritually useless to freely live and die in such a low quality manner especially if that stupidity, ignorance, and desperation stems from being soft, lazy, out of shape, over fed, undernourished, overworked, underpaid with dirty low-paying jobs. S.R.F.
You left out #3. You can't actually get any of these vehicles for at least 6-8 months if then. All these features don't mean anything if the cars don't exist.
