Look at gas prices, we're already in deep shit with our exploding fossils. :lol:

Honestly, daily suburban drives would probably barely dent the meter. Topping up after 40 miles of daily use (American average) is 10kWh of power on an Ioniq 5. The HVAC bill in a sunny climate is going to be 4-6 times worse than that. If you want to worry about electricity consumption, direct your ire at McMansions.

Looking at my stats for the last 30 days, it looks like charging accounts for 1/2 of my total electricty usage.  So it's still doubling what my normal usage would be.

Our Bolt is like $15/month for electricity. (Total bill is $50-100 depending on the month)

The styling could use a lot of work, but it is an enviably thick head of hair. It would be fun to have a beer with him.

Really? You must get a lot of use out of your car. I drive about 80 miles a week. A WEEK! (:cry: in WFH)

My favorite Internet person got an Ioniq 5!

I had no idea that the charging cables had active cooling.
Tesla needs to migrate North Americans to CCS ASAP. If they don't do it voluntarily the regulators will do it eventually anyway. Like Apple and their stupid Lightning cables.

I have almost 13000 miles since Sept, we use it as a regular car and don't drive my wife's car as much now a days.

My electricity use over the last 31 days and roughly 1000 miles:



Note that these are Bay Area electric rates, which are higher than the rest of the country (but so are our gas prices).

Yeah I think that's about twice as much as I'd pay in Utah

And their ADAS guy takes a look. I'm super impressed.

So far I've seen about a half dozen EV6s around me, but only one Ioniq5. Both look great, glad there are more stylish EV options coming out lately!

I wonder when the buzz will die down so I can actually get one without giving up a kidney.

I wouldn't expect any normalcy from the car market for at least another 18 months.
And then, I spent a week as a lemon, jumping in and out of a gin and tonic.

I'm going to try a coworker's EV6 next week. My best view of an EV6 in a parking lot was a bust; the interior was basically an episode of Hoarders.

Saw an Ioniq out in the wild for the first time yesterday. Didn't get a great look at they were going in the other direction but I thought it looked good without being super attention grabbing.

I priced one out: $59k. Only a few grand more than the Hyundai. Damn.

I saw one the other day for the first time.  I thought it kinda looked like a circus wagon from the back.  A bit too glitzy for my taste.

The Genesis? I think it looks pretty nice for an egg car.

The pixel art rear is near and dear to my heart.

It's by far the ugliest of the 3.  The whole exterior is a mess.  The interior is nice though. I love the blue interior.  Shame they ruin it with that lime green stitching though.
