Re: Tesla - check out this video timeline on plug-in hybrids from Dec 2010 to Apr 2019 from InsideEVs. The timeline goes by fast (I watched it a couple times), but the rise of Tesla is undeniable (keep your eye on the purple bars), and the Clarity ranked in the bottom 1/3 at best. Teslas as so common now though, that I appreciate the Insight even more as a 'unique' car.

GM throwing their future away by discontinuing the Volt...

One of the main reasons I wanted a Tesla was the instant torque(you can't really speed in Boston due to traffic/low speed limits but some quick acceleration fun is doable:grin:), and the Insight being a partial series hybrid(parallel hybrid for Prius) sort of gives me a small taste of that. I wonder if more powerful series hybrid vehicles that aren't focused on fuel economy will take some buyers away from electric vehicles because you will get to experience one of the major benefits of an electric vehicle without needing a place to plug in/charge.

Thanks! I had looked into the Leaf as well, and found the average range, especially for early model years, lackluster...The Model 3 or a used S would have been a primary, but as mentioned in other comments on this thread, support, attention and uncertainty really deterred that as a realistic choice. I think if the price on the Chevy Bolt can come down some, it will be a contender in the market. I'm still thrilled and feel I made the right decision.
