Gently used electric cars are very inexpensive. In January, I had an agent buy me a 2014 Cadillac ELR at auction in Tulsa, OK. GM made 2900 from 2014-16. This one is 1 of about 600 red ones made. It was just off a 24 month lease with 18000 miles. Had it shipped to my house and it came out to 33% of retail before taxes. It came with 20 months of bumper-bumper, 3.5 years of drivetrain and 5.5 years of battery warranty remaining. It needed a little interior warranty work and the local Cadillac dealer gave me a new CT6 to drive for two days while they did it. The 20" low profile tires were noisy at 20,000 mi so I replaced them. Has 40 mi of electric range then another 300 on generator for long trips. It is a dream to drive with the series 1 Voltec drivetrain. Goes around corners like it is on rails. Super quiet with the new tires. I still want my Elio as well, but, I am smiling. I will have an even bigger smile when my Elio arrives.
