I can't help but notice these days the line of cars plugged in at malls, offices, etc. all with preferred up front parking considering buying an EV and now trying to educate myself on what it would be like with an EV in terms of: hybrid vs all electric what is maintenance like on an EV - do I go to my regular mechanic for things like oil changes, brakes, tires. is an EV less prone to things breaking? volt, leaf, kia soul, prius - why are there so many used cars all seem to be around the same year and mileage. makes me wonder why and which used car would you recommend and why charging - how long can i leave the car parked in one of these stalls? are you having to top off all the time is this good for the battery? HOV sticker - if I buy a used car with an HOV sticker is that transferable and would I be abel to drive in an HOV lane by myself? what are the rules? any helpful resources or links to get me acclimated this new world? appreciate all your guidance and things you learned along the way.
