I’m in my mid-30s and love my Toyota RAV4, but I know my wife won’t buy a new car for her.
I’m looking for a cheaper, more efficient, smaller, more powerful, and less-expensive alternative.
For my budget, I’m willing to pay $30-$40 less than the top-of-the-line Prius and Nissan Leaf, but only if I want the best features and the most fun.
I’m a fan of the Tesla Model S, but it costs $65,000 more than the RAV-4.
And I’ve been looking at a Nissan Leaf for awhile now.
“I was going to go with an electric car but I wanted something that’s cheaper,” she says.
It’s not just the features that matter.
“It’s the cost.
How much do you pay for the battery?” she asks.
“I can’t pay that much for a car if it’s just not worth it.”
She says she loves the Prius, but she’d rather have an electric option.
While some experts argue the Model S is a great choice, others say the Leaf is much better.
And if you really like the ROV4 and want the most power and the best handling, you can get a $30,000 Nissan Leaf with a top-end battery for less than $20,000.
The price difference is the most noticeable when you compare it to other luxury vehicles.
The Audi A4 is $25,000 less expensive than the Toyota Prius.
If you want to save money and have a bigger space, you could get a Chevy Volt for less money than the $80,000 Prius with a $35,000 top-level battery.
There’s also a lot of room for you to customize the Priuses and EVs.
When it comes to a car, a lot is about the look, so you want the car that looks the most appealing to you.
She’s looking for the perfect vehicle for the cost, not the power.
“My husband’s not going to be able to afford it, so I’m just going to stick with the best,” she tells me.
A cheaper car is just what you need to save and get ahead in life.
