I recently wrote about how I turned in my 2017 Chevy Bolt LT nine months early on a 39-month lease. In that blog entry, I focused primarily on how much money I would save by doing so over leasing a Tesla Model 3. I posted a link to this SolarChargedDriving.Com entry to a Chevy Bolt Facebook Group and received nearly 150 likes and more than 100 comments. My blog entry sparked a lot of interesting discussion and debate and I thank all those who posted likes and comments and feedback.
I've been driving a leased 2017 Chevy Bolt LT since Sept. 2017. It's been a great little car: Zippy, fun, quiet, fuel efficient. It's got plenty of range (238 miles), including enough range for a 2,400-mile round-trip road trip I did with my teen daughters from Denver to Santa Barbara, Calif. and back in the Summer of 2018.
There is a lot of misinformation and outright anti-Electric Vehicle propaganda circulating on the internet. After all, BIG OIL and its moneyed interests have A LOT to lose if the world converts to electric vehicles which are far more environmentally and health friendly than any gasoline vehicle ever will be.
There's absolutely no doubt that electric cars are quicker than gasoline cars.
Whether you're driving an electric car or not, there is no excuse for endangering other people's lives by regularly texting, surfing, etc. your phone while driving. Unfortunately, at this point, it seems to me, based on admittedly anecdotal observation here in the Denver, Colo. area, as if about 50% of drivers are regularly texting.
The video below is a GREAT ad for the cost savings that you can generate, right from the start, when you buy or lease an electric car and fuel it with electricity generated by a home solar system.
