That's true but a simple car and a performance car are no the same thing. One offers far more fun. Sure I will agree that passion is usually the reason we buy one car over another. But it would seem there is no real reason to buy an Electric RAV 4 when a gas powered one will perform identically and cost half as much. It's like your choosing to pay twice as much for the same or really less performance. You can drive a regular rav 4 across the country.
Still it's your money and if electric vehicles get you off and make you smile then plug in and smile!
I love to drive a 42 year old car with triple weber carbs!
