Ok, maybe I'm nuts. I've been considering a full-EV and had looked at the Leaf + and Kona. After test driving, pricing negotiations, etc, I've found that I'd be paying at least $40+k for the EV. I know it's all relative, but that's a lot of money to spend when I'm not absolutely certain I'd be happy with a full-EV. I had also considered the PHEV's (Ioniq, Prius Prime and the Clarity)- only ones that have the Federal Tax Credit benefit (a criteria). I am most "drawn" to the Honda Clarity Touring model, but I haven't even seen one in person. I like the higher EV range, the looks of the Clarity, and having had a very positive history with past Hondas, my comfort level is there. Thed Clarity seems (to me) to be a nice balance between EV and hybrid. I haven't read anything horrible in the reviews. My issue: I'm in Massachusetts and the Claritys are in California! Is it a crazy idea to consider a cross-country purchase(fly and buy or ship)? I did a quick search on the subject and didn't see any major pitfalls. I've read on this forum of people getting very good deals on the Clarity Touring model (<$34k). Fact: I've never seen, sat in nor driven a clarity. Something to consider or am I ready for psychiatric admission?
