One of our cars is crawling along these days and though we we’re not excited about buying another vehicle, we are excited about what type of vehicle it will be. Yes, you guessed it, an electric! After years of researching, a few drives here and there, and much advocacy, we’re planning to dive in head first.
Since we haven’t bought a car in years, there’s a lot of ground to cover. And adding in the electric vehicle (EV) component arguably compounds the legwork required to make sure we getting a good deal and minimizing obsolescence. The search got underway in Albany, NY when I drove a Nissan Leaf. In short, I was really impressed with how it handled. It felt like a solid car without all the noise and rumbling of a combustible engine — something you have to experience to appreciate. We’ve been looking for a used one in Upstate NY but not seeing too much inventory. I’ll have more updates soon.
