If they've been driving a Lincoln, they might not take to an imev. I've
had a Tesla for two years and an imiev for 5 months. I much prefer to
drive the imev where the range allows. In the winter here in Texas, the
imiev range was about 50 miles without using the heater. The heated
seats serve well enough. In current temperatures, 50-80, the range is
more than 60. Haven't yet used the air conditioning.
So, my parents are okay. But, apparently, their '89 Lincoln Town car might not
be...somebody pulled out of a driveway in front of them faster than could be
avoided...resulting in smoke coming from the engine compartment and suspected
possible frame damage.
The imiev was $26k including TTL. Income tax credit is $7.5k and Texas
has a $2.5k state rebate. So, $16k.
