Electrics are great...if you don't have to drive very much. I drive 225 miles daily (round trip) just to get to and from work. I need a car that has enough range to do that comfortably, and if it's powered by some sort of petroleum product, I need the car to be able to easily make two round trips so I don't have to hit the gas station every day.

I used to have a '16 Prius, and it would just barely make the two round trips to work...on days with high winds (frequent where I drive), my MPG would drop and I'd end up stopping early for gas. The Jetta, regardless of weather, easily makes 2 round trips, and I could probably make 3 pretty easily. No electric has the range I need, especially given the headwinds and temperature extremes I deal with all the time.

I'm not at all disappointed with the idea of more Diesels entering the market. Bring them on! I'll happily drive them!
