If you could choose between the 3 and they were the same price, which would you go with?

Assume similar performance and range.

Additionally assuming a similar price as well, I would choose the ICE until charging times improve.

You neglected to include a PHEV choice in the poll, but if that were added, I would strongly consider it. In fact, assuming insignificant weight gain over the ICE equivalent, I would prefer the PHEV to the pure ICE solution.

In the end, I voted for all of them because you gave us the ability to do so and I think all of them deserve consideration.

Until someone figures out how to share Supercharger stations, or create a similar model, Tesla is the easy answer if you ever want to leave town.

I get that EV's are the way of the future but the range and charging rate is of concern to me. I can get 800km per tank and fill up in less than 5 min. I think were a ways off of full EV exceptance.

I think it depends on whether it's an only car. For us, the wife drives less per week than the range of a Tesla, so just plugging it in at home one night is more than adequate. We can take my ICE car for longer trips, or use hers to park in the front at the airport. Could we have two fully electric cars? Kinda, but it's pretty easy to just have one ICE and one electric.
