Vehicles: 2017 Nissan Leaf, 2019 Tesla Model 3 LR
I bought the 310m dual motor, AWD 3. I wouldn't do less for cross country road trips. It is smooth, secure and, exactly when you want it, very fast.
I love this car. And as a person with climate guilt (which I think should be consuming us all ) it helps. As our grids get cleaned up, the energy to move these things is cleaner.
I used to have a 2011 Subaru Forester - exceptional mountain vehicle. snow, lite off road, good seating, power up hill, good ride. However, it also burned gas and polluted the air. I bought a 2017 Nissan LEAF for the benefits that electric vehicles have: no gas, oil changes, maintenance for most things. Also, and the big one, no carbon guilt and cleaner air in the neighborhood. A little while after I bought the LEAF, I installed a 220 charging station at home. 110v regular household current worked ok, but it made the car more flexible to charge at 25miles an hour.
So the big "why" to go EV for us is that the climate crisis is an emergency and most everyone stands around with their hands in their pockets.
I recently bought a Tesla. Yes, it was a stretch, but when it's an emergency, you do what's right. I travel to see family and I try not to fly. I had the car on its first road trip this week end. So far so really good!
