If they ever made one that could go longer distances. I have seen only 1 recharging station for such cars at Fred Meyer. To make them attractive, need many more recharging stations. Until then, no thx

How about YES!, but it’s too expensive. Therefore, I’ll wait

We have an EV for local & shorter range trips (have gone to Vancourver, WA & Eugene, OR) and a Hybrid for longer range trips. Electricity is $10/month, and nothing once we have PV. No maintenance cost

Because I want to make that choice being I'm a free individual in the United States of America. Free to make my own choices and not be told by a dictator governor of the State of Oregon. FDKB.

No one forced me! I love getting 50 mpg while gas guzzlers are paying my share!

Government is already controlling you when you drive. Ever stop at a stoplight? That's some university indoctrinated bureaucrat deciding how long you will be made to sit there and wait for his little technocracy to "turn the light green" so you can go.

No one is forcing you! Watch something else beside Fox for a change, to get a full picture!

I mean I would but they are too expensive. Honestly I would rather to not drive at all and take the bus everywhere but that isn't currently realistic.

Not easy, but doable! Worth it in the long run.

I've always wanted a hybrid but having my vehicles paid off it's just not worth it.

Although it’s environmentally friendly, it is far too expensive. Perhaps in the future when corporations become competitive in this area and sell vehicles at cheaper prices.

It’s not that it’s too expensive I just like gas powered cars and I love hearing the engine rev unfortunately kids today will never understand not only what that 3rd pedal is for but also a real car

We were fortunate to buy an EV new with substantial discounts and rebates, credits. $16K for a $34K new car. I don't think it's too expensive.

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.
