I'm in no hurry and honestly have yet to drive one. However, I am interested and don't want to discount them entirely based on price. Although, I can certainly understand why others do and I agree there has to be compromise somewhere. I really wish GM would make a full size sedan with the Volt Tech in it as I'd seriously consider it. I'm just afraid that may not happen with the launch of the Bolt. I have also seen some chatter that the Volt may not see a version 3 depending on market demand/etc. As for Tesla, EV is all they do and to some extent most other manufactures are chasing them which is certainly a turn of events.I seriously considered a CPO Tesla back in November. I worked with a salesman at the West Palm Beach service center, where they also keep the CPO vehicles. I test drove a P85+ and a S85 and had my desired list of required and nice to haves along with pricing. I had my financing lined up. I was ready.
Then I drove one. Other than being fast, the "wow" factor was not there for me. I've had lots of fast cars, and now I'm just over it. LOL
I've had a Voltec vehicle for nearly 5 years now. Driving electric is nothing new to me, it is normal. I expect the quiet, the smooth, the not going to gas stations.
When I considered the price (62-68k) for a used Tesla and thought about if I really needed the additional cost and range, I changed my mind. I picked up a 17' Volt earlier this month and now I'm a happy camper once again.
Good luck with your decision.
