I bought a Prius in 2005 and had it converted to a Hymotion PHEV in 2009. Later I sold it to my granddaughter at a low price. I gave courses on hybrid cars for the local YMCA Open University. I bought a Highlander Hybrid in 2009 and tried to convert it to a PHEV in 2014 and failed. I traded it for a RAV4 Hybrid in 2016. I bought a Chinese ZAP Xero Pk 3-wheel pickup BEV in 2007 with gel lead-acid batteries and tried to convert it to lithium-ion batteries, but failed. I gave it away in 2010. I leased a 2012 LEAF SL for 3 years. I leased a 2015 LEAF SV for 2 years. My daughter bought it at a low price when I returned it to Nissan. I have given talks on EVs several times. I signed up for the Tesla Model 3 on the first day possible after test driving the Models S & X. I own some stock in Tesla. In April 2017 I bought a Bolt EV Premier with fast charging capability and have driven it for about 7800 miles, including several trips over 400 miles. I had to go to northern Virginia to get it and drive it 278 miles back home. I get about 300-miles range around Blacksburg VA and higher than 238 miles on long trips driving slightly over the speed limit. When my turn comes for the TM3 I plan to sell the CBEV, perhaps to a daughter or some other person on a list I have of interested persons. I plan to get the Long Range 310-miles TM3, probably with the Premium upgrade but probably will wait until later to get the Autopilot and Advanced Autopilot. Starting next week I am giving a 3-lecture course for the Lifelong Learning Institute of Virginia Tech on hybrid cars, plug-in hybrid cars and battery-electric cars. I estimate that there are about 15 BEVs in Blacksburg VA, most of them LEAFs bought used.
