Thanks! I think you're right, I already can't imagine going back. I have a 2018 base model... I've never been happier with a car.Welcome to the community and congrats on your Clarity. I think once you've owned a hybrid it will be quite difficult to ever consider a petrol car again. What trim/spec is your new car?
For me, the price of gasoline vs electricity is not so different. We pay .12 cent KWh for electricity no matter what time of day, and gasoline is currently $2.06 per gallon. The convenience of a preheated/precooled cabin and silent EV running is more enticing than the cost savings of using electricity vs gasoline.I did extensive research on the cost of electricity for me and gas. I figure I saved $6 per day or $42 per week in fuels costs (over my previous car which got 28 mpg). The full range for me is around 50 EV miles which is my commute almost exactly. My charging costs between 10pm and 7am is $0.1275 KWh and the cost of gas is $3.69 per gallon.
