I live in a condo in Seattle. We do not have a lot of electric charging infrastructure-- but there is a level 2 charger at a supermarket across the street (but not free). I have a plug near my garage space-- but not enough amps (even at 110 V) and the HOA would not let me use it even if it did. (Please don't suggest move to another building that will let me charge-- the Seattle real estate market is generally considered the hottest in the country. There is no right to charge WA state; Plugshare has been contacted, but the one member that was sympathetic has left).
I don't need my car for commuting (use public transit) but need my car for weekends as well as to loan to my parents in the summertime. Since my parents are older, my next car will need the 2 driver confidence packages (and if possible ACC) or the equivalent.
WA state allows cars that gets 30 miles or more by electric will have the first 32,000 not charged the high (almost 10%) sales tax. So Prius Prime is not eligible. Unclear if the Ioniq PHEV will be eligible.
I don't like the looks of the Prius. The Ioniq has gotten mixed reviews (and the PHEV has not been released, but has gotten mixed reviews from the European mags). Should I buy a Volt Premier or a Honda Civic Touring (Honda sensing is the same as the 2 driver confidence packages and ACC)?
Given these circumstances, which would you buy?
