    200-300 miles, in warm weather, with the best EVs. Battery capacity and vehicle range decrease significantly in below freezing weather. For talking purposes, as much as 40%.

    I don't hate EV's and just showed you what the most popular one's are so that you can start looking for brands that brands that will be available in 2025 when you're ready to purchase....

    LOL, if you can do without AC in Houston, then you can also stop eating all but one peanut butter sandwich per week, and use that grocery money to get the FI system in no time! You can do it Chuck- we believe in you!! :D

    LOL. Man, I am seriously impressed though- summer has to be FL swamp-like.

    Chuck71RS. I find it crazy you don't use A/C here in Houston. You must work outside to adapt to the heat and humidity.
    Heat only I could totally believe but the humidity gets to me. Had to go a week a few yrs back in the summer when my A/C went out.
    Had ceiling fan and floor fan on me and still had a hard time sleeping.
    Good for you.

    Just got my bill. I live in a one bedroom apartment. Approximately 10.7 KWH daily, 310 for the month. Total bill - $42.48. This is for hot water, lights, TV, computer and of course, the A/C. Average daily temp - 88 F.

    Speaking about electric vehicles, here in China there is a huge push by most levels of gov't to go electric. In Shenzhen, every city bus is electric, all the scooters (and there are huge hordes of the things completely ignoring any sort of traffic control!)are required by law to be electric, the only motorcycles allowed are police bikes and a large portion of the cars are electric. I probably see dozens of Tesla cars when I'm out walking every day and there are a number of local manufacturers producing them as well. To buy an energy efficient car, it is cheaper license wise to get an electric or hybrid than it is to buy a gas powered car. Also quicker as reportedly you can get the license to buy the efficient car right away whereas for a gas car, it's basically a lottery and can take a month or more to get a license to buy one.

    Electrified cars are where the industry is going, they be all electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid. Our plug-in Pacifica got 64 miles per gallon of gas used this summer. That doesn't take into account the electricity it took to charge the battery but by Chrysler's calculations which does take the power into account, the van got 48 mpg.
