I know a few folks on here do. Have posted pics and relevant info etc.
But with the proliferation of threads arguing about how great and economical they are, how many of y'all, especially the noisy proponents own EVs and what are they?

Grit dog,

Would building an electric powered trike count? I did that in 2005.

I have one too, love it! Better yet, my wife likes to use it.[emoticon] Grit, I think that other than the nutty Tesla truck thread, most have been started by goobers who just want to whine about EVs. I wish along with their whining they'd come up with some suggestions for alternatives.

I read this piece of writing fully on the topic of the comparison of the most up-to-date and earlier technologies, it’s a remarkable article. https://www.gtopcars.com

I'm starting to get into the battery yard tools... Gives me an excuse to buy new tools! [emoticon]

I'm still using a gas mower, chipper, edger, weed whacker, chain saw, but now have a cordless leaf blower, hedge trimmer, drills, impacts, saws and electric pressure washers.. [emoticon]

I know that's not the question, but it does show that i'm moving to that battery direction for sure.. [emoticon]

I would likely buy one if they were cheap enough, but cheap to me is around $10,000. And I've only spent over that for the diesel trucks to pull the 5th wheel.

I own a Bolt EUV, that I got in July. I had a Bolt EV from Jan 2020. I have a reservation for a Silverado EV.

I bought a Silverado 3500HD CC Duramax in August.

I drove a gas Express to Iowa in August.

We have traveled beyond the range 2 times since Jan 2020 in the Bolt. My wife has traded for my daughters Equinox to make a 200 mile trip. I am not interested in spending time to charge. If I was assured a charging point at a destination, I might actually take it.

I also have electric yard tools, and use them when appropriate. I still use gas when necessary.
