You're begging the question of what makes a solution the best.The EREV solution is really the best. The downside is having an engine + battery pack reduces the amount of space available for passengers and cargo. Buyers want larger vehicles but, as seen with the CT6 hybrid, it's hard to find passenger and cargo space in a PHEV with decent range even in a larger footprint.
Obviously an EREV gives you as many EV miles as most BEVs and they also work just fine for road trips. BEVs simply aren't suitable for long trips. So EREVs are the only seamless solution at this point in time.You're begging the question of what makes a solution the best.
I have one. There's a lot to like about it. The 7.5 Ah battery lasts well longer than my B&D lead-acid ones. It kinda sucks at mulching if you let the lawn get too long (kinda hard to avoid in the spring).I'm looking at the Ego system. I like the fact they have a self-propelled mower and with COPD that's important.
They also do on-demand mowing but I think it costs more (like $75 with a week's notice).Time to buy a herd of sheep to do your lawn mowing.
Sorry about that. Fact is I love our 3rd Volt even more than I did the first two. My 2017 has been 100% FLAWLESS with ZERO issues. That is until some asshole in an F150 opened his door into the side of her and now I have to have the entire right rear door panel repaired and repainted to the tune of $350. Am trying to live with the GOUGE, but it's hard when the rest of the car is so PERFECT.For a minute there, BAZINGA, I thought you had suffered some catastrophic Volt-related failure and were abandoning it. The sarcasm wasn't conveyed well through the thread title. WHEW.
