and the 85 KWH is $72,400 and those prices are after the $7,500 Federal tax credit.
So unless everyone wants to donate to my new car.
I can't afford that. I will use the car to travel to Los Angeles so an all electric car isn't going to work for me. I will have to go with a hybrid electric/gas car.
Then just go with the best hybrid available, Prius.
Or better yet, save $5000 and get the 2013 Honda Civic. I get 40MPG in mine and am glad I chose it over the Prius. After calculations, it would have taken 20 years for me to recoup the $5k price difference at the gas pump had I bought the Prius.
