EVs have been a tax credit not a deduction. Big difference

Can you register a vehicle without a residential address? Like if fenikz sells his place/breaks his lease, buys a van in Montana and wants to register it there, can he register it without an actual permanent residence?

I don't believe most states allow you to not have a mailing address.

this is also true.

in some states, I believe you can put a homeless shelter as your address.

I'm pretty sure it would work just fine, however i'm not sure why anyone would want to have a PO Box and receive important mail in a state they didn't live in.

Yeah, I'm watching those and Rivian. I don't expect the latter to ever be anything but vapor, but hoping it inspires someone else. I can't give up the trail capability in my 4Runner, but I'd love to go electric.

Can't think of a worse place to get stuck without battery than in the wilderness.

The Lightning is also gonna be like $80k, so not necessarily affordable for the masses.

Can't you just buy everyone here an electric car? We only have like 10 members. Don't be selfish.

I could make that work, for sure. I just need to get to trailheads easily.

Yeah, my vague business idea when there are enough of the EVs around is to retire and start a company driving out to random backwoods shit and recharging people’s vehicles. Especially because most of them won’t really even get that deep in the woods.

My friend has the Prius version of that. She loves it, but the rear end is ugly af. She had the damnedest time finding the exact model she wanted, so I guess they just don't make a ton of cars like that.

I did look at the Prius prior to this but like you said the rear end is ugly and most people said it was even a hazard because you can't see shit behind you

29 miles on electric is work and back 2x which is cool, probably will just end up with a decent mpg sedan because EVs are still hard to get the ones you want

My mom has the plug in hybrid Pacifica and it's legit. 32 miles on electric and then 30mpg mixed driving with no battery. We put a charger on our construction trailer so she can get up to 64 miles of charge a day. It's super roomy, comfortable, and has so much usable space. Probably gonna drive it until the HOV runs out and buy another one.

I know people hate mini vans, but I don't give a fuck. It's too damn useful. It has a bluray player, 2 hdmi ins, 3 screens, wall outlet.

Rivian just got government approval to sell so it might actually come to fruition. The Rivian and Tesla trucks are interesting overall, but I have serious reservations about them as actual work vehicles. I have a 5' bed right now and I run into issues pretty often so the tiny bed on the rivian isn't good. Heaven forbid if I ever want to put on some racks to haul lumber or something.
