MaintenanceCostsNot sure this is true for electrified products. The Pacifica Hybrid continues to have its share of issues and there have been some issues with the 4xe products as well.
AjlaI'm probably not going to buy an EV performance car. I just don't think the power delivery and silence are going to do it for me.Most likely is that I'll have an EV/PHEV "premium" vehicle, (which is where I think EV attributes make the most sense) and then have a "classic" ICE car for Sunday trips to Culver's.
DukeisdukeThe US Postal Service uses some of these, complete with a custom grille that replaces the three-pointed star with a white-painted USPS eagle logo.I've never seen very many of these. About 50/50 split between the commercial versions and passenger versions.
DukeisdukeIt's interesting that the Olds has a column shifted three-speed, while the nicer Buick still had to make do with a floor shift.
