So this is what I've found out that I didn't know and wished I had expanded more on today's episode. There are two different types of Hybrid vehicles. Then, there is EV. There is a plug in hybrid which leans more to EV vehicles and then, there's the hybrid that leans more to gas vehicles. Unfortunately, I put out some miss leading information with EV. They go way farther than I said in the episode. I also found that Tesla goes further than most EV models, which is why it's one of the, if not, the best EV vehicle on the market. It's also, depending on the model, one of the most cost effective vehicles. With all the technology that comes with the car like the self driving and them going up to 250 miles per charge up, it's no wonder the Tesla keeps being at the top. Problem is, will they let Tesla still be Eligible of the Tax write off? Some site have gone back and forth on this. Then again, other manufacturers have stepped up their games too. Tesla has had a lot of clap back performance wise from other manufacturers. Some have gotten close to the 300 miles mark and they know it. The Nissan Leaf has gone from only going about 100 miles a charge up to 150 miles. Ford just came out with the Mustang EV that goes 230 miles per charge up. My only question is for Ford is do you still get that Mustang power? Now, enough about EV, let's go over to Plug-in Hybrids. Among the cheapest have been the long standing Toyota Prius and also the Toyota RAV4 then Hyundai and Kia have come out with their line of Plug-in Hybrids that are very cost effective like the Niro and Ioniq. Honda has the Clarity going for $35,000 and can go up tp 48 miles on a plug in charge. That's pretty impressive. No matter what you choose, these tax write offs that you get are no joke. Some of the these tax credits go up to $7,500 and they are only $33,000. I'm really thinking of trading off but then the question comes down to, what am I trading out? Let me know what you think?!
