Might be worth checking out the lease options. I'm leasing a Smart ED
for $124/mo with $250 down. A Smart's not the best freeway car but it's
great around town. I've seen deals on Leafs for under $250/month.

So...if the insurance company winds up totaling the car, as we suspect they
might...can anybody suggest an inexpensive EV suited to a retired couple?
It would need to be freeway-capable with a reliable won't strand-them 50-ish
mile range in a Phoenix summer with modest air conditioning usage.
The biggest potential problem would be budget...they're on a fixed income. They
have some, but not much, money they can supplement an insurance settlement
with, and I can probably pitch in a few pennies. I'm hoping the used market is
mature enough that there might be something worthwhile there.
Suggestions most appreciated.
