Makes my deal on the Clarity Electric look like a steal. $499 down ($1,499 less $1K loyalty cash from the Fit EV program), 35 payments of $199, less $2,500 OR rebate. Comes out to $4,964 for 3 years or ~$138/mo.

Do I wish it had more range? Of course. But can't currently touch any other EV for anywhere near that amount and we have a 43 mpg "gas guzzler" for longer trips (and our motorcycles for vacation trips )
That sure makes up for not having self-service gas stations! I found that to be the strangest thing when my wife and I vacationed on the Oregon coast a few years ago.
