I bought a 2015 Fusion Energi back in February and I’m obsessed with it. It’s the best of both worlds. Electric & Gas. It doesn’t have a long range battery but my work is only 5 miles away. It’s about 25 miles/ charge then switches to hybrid mode. Since February I’ve only filled up once and it’s my daily driver. Sadly my city isn’t very E Car friendly, so there aren’t plugs at the mall or anything 🙁 But it’s definitely fun to drive! Even my F250 Diesel driving husband likes it! 

Congrats on the Tesla!

MrsPiggles:  Congratulations the Tesla S is stunning, good choice. Yeah the VW e-golf is 100% electric it gets 126 miles per charge. My husband wanted something quite small cause he always had big cars, we even checked out the fiat electric but he is 6’2 so that didn’t work out lol.

There are a few hydrogen SUV’s coming out as well in a few years, if your husband likes big cars. I’m considering one of those when the family grows, but right now I have my eyes on a beautiful Italian. 

rubyrane:  My hubby has a F250 Diesel too, I love driving that monster!!

saritacg7:  Really? I hate driving it, I feel like I’m about to run someone over every minute. Lol He’s been trying to get me to drive it while towing a 14ft trailer I keep telling him he doesn’t care for other peoples’ safety. Lol 

I prefer to ride shotgun. I call it my “Chariot” 

 

I’m so jealous of the E VW, I had a CC before my Fusion and I was obsessed with it. They don’t offer them in Texas though :/ Darling Husband has worked for VW before and I asked him why I’ve never seen one.

rubyrane:  That’s funny, it was an adjustment but after awhile it was quite natural you just need to get used to it. Ours is bit lifted and has a the long bed and one time I had to parallel park it in downtown L.A., I was sweating bullets it was so intense. But I pulled it off in 4 maneuvers, I was pretty proud of myself lol

Yeah the VW Egolf is only in a few states right now lucky Cali was first because like you again I also had the CC 2011 and was in love with it! I traded it a few years ago but I think I’m going to get it again because I miss it.

My husband has a volt that he loves though I’d love to get a tesla in the future.We had a charging station installed at my house.  I think at the time there was a full rebate courtesy of a government program.  I’m not sure if that is still the case.  You can also just plug it into a regular outlet but it takes a lot longer to charge.
