Poll - Electric Vehicle ownership now or in the future [View all]

I'm thinking about getting an EV or Hybrid in a year or two. Curious if and when people on DU are considering a EV. If you have one, let us know what kind and if you like it or not. Or what the biggest positives and negatives are.

Will be taking suggestions to add to the poll for the first 10 minutes after I launch this.
