      @Automotive Territory: Trending News & Car Reviews I beg to differ. There are plenty of nice looking small ICE cars but for some reason all the manufacturers think that electric cars need to look futuristic. The little Honda EV is cute though so maybe we're moving in the right direction.

      12:40 "Many electric cars still qualify for government incentives".

      Only if they are bought NEW. No incentives apply to USED electric vehicles. At least, not here in Canada. For example, the average asking price of a used Kia Soul EV is about $20,000 - but instead of getting any incentives, people get TAXED. The 13% sales tax adds another $2,700 to the already ridiculous price. And this is not even to mention car insurance - another requirement that the government imposes, instead of offering insurance incentives and thus motivating people to buy used EVs. Now, here is a question: by effectively imposing prohibitive prices on the used EV market, do governments really want people to go electric?

      @Automotive Territory: Trending News & Car Reviews You buy...then you find out at about 60/65000 miles just what these Renaults and Fiats(fix it all tomorrow) are all about...the other side of the motoring rip off,maintenance,predominantly by french specialist.Renaults have something that is very special to them,its called 'Intermitant electrical fault'...it comes and goes and is annoying,interupts with everything in your car,power steering locking up when you least need it to,electric windows going up and down without you pushing any button,push button start not working,etc.Any mechanic will tell you French are complete nightmare cars that keep them in a living.The fault is caused by the use of thin aluminium strips instead of copper wire,these cheap aluminium strips crack and thus you have an intermittent connection,as opposed to copper which bends freely without cracking or snapping.After owning a Laguna I am very well placed to confirm that if you buy Renault you will be keeping many mechanics in business.

      I can only show prices for new vehicles, as they are most or less fixed. Still, I haven't seen a new ICE vehicle being cheaper than 8 or 9 thousand. New electric vehicles are more costly but have you tried searching for used electric cars? I've seen used Nissan Leafs for way less than 10 thousand.

      @Automotive Territory: Trending News & Car Reviews I don't know the average worldwide either. What I do know is I've never paid more than 4k for a car and 95% of the people I know cannot afford new cars and need to buy used. Gas guzzling SUVs tend to be cheaper, unfortunately. I've known many people who salvaged junk yard wrecks because that's all they could afford. It's kind of cruel irony that the hard working people most affected by high gas and maintenance prices can't afford the vehicles that would save them the most.
      I'm well aware of the cost savings, but they're irrelevant if you can't afford the initial cost.... I've wanted an electric car for the last 15+ years but I doubt I'll ever be able to afford one. And I'm not alone in that sentiment. I hear many echoing it...
      And, unfortunately, you can't function in my locale without a car. If I could, I'd ditch my car in a heart beat to save all that money to be better spent...I have a bike, but there are no bike lanes. And it would be suicide to try to ride one in the traffic on our roads...

      Japanese manufacturers were expecting hydrogen to be the next big thing that's why they are late to the EV party. As for long-range commuting, at this time electric cars are not meant to be used for this. Also the comparison between M3 and Nissan Leaf don't seem fair, Leaf is about $15k cheaper. It's better to compare M3 to cars like Chevy Bolt, Kona EV or Niro EV. Those could cover over 200 miles on a charge too and have almost identical price tags.

      @Automotive Territory: Trending News & Car Reviews The Asians are definitely not leading the electric car revolution. Even their hybrids are only so-so, with the possible exception of Toyota's older Prius model, or Honda Civic.. Plausible scenario: You now have a $28-40k USD electric commuter car on your hands.. with maybe somewhat less than 100 miles range. You decide to go on vacation and see something of your country on a road trip... Now you're down to 2 practical choices: Tesla model 3 or Nissan leaf. The leaf and chevy e-cars struggle to even make a bit over 200 mile range on flat roads, and their performance is laughable at best. So..
