While I can't take out any credit for another year or so, I'm really torn between getting an all electric vehicle when the time comes or just sucking it up.

So just as I suspected, an all electric vehicle would practically pay for itself given the miles I drive per day. A hybrid would save money too but if I'm going to have a payment, why not lose the fuel bill entirely?
would buying new batteries every 6-10 years at $5k -$6k plus the initial cost be worth saving a little on fuel costs?

Who is They?

He literally was directing it at the people in this thread. So again...which of us truck owners dont pull trailers, haul equipment...etc?

He fabricatiled a scenario to make himself feel good and that's what I'm calling out. Sure concrete cowboys exist but I doubt that's what the majority of this thread is.

Chevrolet Volt Replacement Batteries Could Cost Anywhere From $3,400 To $34,000 To Replace. GM Authority.

while true, there are reman and more and more new options that arent from the dealership. I have a customer in Austin that makes a good living buying hybrid cars from the auction that have battery codes, and putting in a used or new battery and selling them.
