When charging stations are ubiquitous, I would seriously consider buying an EV.

We definitely ought to do away with fossil fuels, and EV's are a way to do it, but we ought to address our out of control car culture too and make vast, revolutionary investments into robust public transit.

What you do mean "reconsider"? I considered one before, now I'm strongly considering it.

No one can afford one in this economy and Biden. Think buying a electric vehicle will help the environment, climate. Does not exist the climate is always changing

No, not really

I can buy a ****LOT**** of gasoline for the money an Electric Vehicle would cost... ****AND**** my gas-consuming vehicles are a ****LOT**** more cost-effective over the next 10 years ***AND*** much less damaging to the environment NOW and in the FUTURE. I will NEVER buy an EV.

Electric cars are great for around town. They can not replace my truck for towing. Taking a boat to prineville reservoir from bend and back is pretty taxing if not impossible for most Electric vehicles currently. I don't want to make it home with 3% battery hoping nothing happens along the way.

I would never be able to afford an electric car and they are worse for the environment when it comes to the batteries in them. Plus a new battery would cost more than the care itself. And I wouldn't want one to begin with. It is the worst idea ever!!!

They are still to expensive, don't have a far enough reach and there is not enough infrastructure. We aren't there yet. Maybe in 10 years, but not now.

I am considering an electric vehicle, but gas prices really don't play a part in this decision.

Will never buy an electric vehicle! The cost and maintenance over the long term just don't pencil out.

The arrogance of our country thinking we can make a difference in changing the climate is laughable. Especially when countries such as China, India, Russia and those in South America do not pay attention to any of it.

I will when they are feasible they are not I am in the auto business they have just as many negative's as positives. But in 5-10 years maybe we will see Hydrogen or Bio fueled would have been a better way to go but whatever Politicians think is best for us

We need to find a better way to store electricity before electric vehicles will be feasible for the whole of society.

Do you complain about everything? It seems that way.

Obviously, if kids who shouldn't be riding these bikes cannot ride them to school, that represents hours of the day that they won't be on them, being reckless, violating basic rules of the road, and putting lives, including theirs, in danger.
