I am a retired owner of a 2011 BMW 323 with 178,000 km on the odometer, I keep my cars for a very long time. I get annoyed when I fill up and I want to buy an electric car for my grandchildren. I’m hesitating between the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Bolt. […] I ride about 14,000km a year and my trips rarely exceed 45km. Which of these two vehicles would be my best choice?

Of the two vehicles mentioned, the Chevrolet Bolt seems to be the best choice. However, you could also consider two other vehicles in the same price range: the electric Mini Cooper and the Mazda MX-30. Both vehicles offer significantly less range than the models you’re considering, but given the distance you’ll cover, they’re still worth considering. All these vehicles offer a comparable loading volume.
I want to buy a Golf R within two years, do you think Volkswagen will market this model electrically? I need all-wheel drive given where I live, but I might as well consider a GTi if the R wasn’t offered in electric.
The release of an electric vehicle intended for performance at Volkswagen will probably have to wait a little over two years. The German manufacturer is currently leading other projects (ID.Buzz and ID.Aero). According to our sources, Volkswagen is still developing a GTX version of its ID.3 electric sedan (not marketed in North America), also known by the codename ID.X. We currently know that a working prototype exists, but the German manufacturer has yet to give the green light to its commercialization.
forced to wait
Currently owners of a 2019 Kia Niro PHEV, we are camping enthusiasts and have had an Aliner A-frame tent trailer since last summer. Unfortunately, despite its light weight of 2000 lbs, the Kia prohibits towing with our vehicle. We are therefore looking for a new PHEV vehicle with a towing capacity of 2500 lbs. To stay within our budget, we’ve only found the RAV4 Prime, and there’s a 24-month wait. Do you have any other suggestions?
Unfortunately, there are no workarounds. No vehicle but the RAV4 Prime meets all of your criteria. And according to our information, the future Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Honda CR-V Hybrid will not be able to pull an equivalent load.

I would like to know if it is possible to install a trailer hitch. [hitch] for bike carriers on long-distance model Ioniq 5 2022 with rear-wheel drive. My dealer doesn’t seem to know.
For real ? However, Hyundai offers a number of accessories in this direction. Towbar package ($880.51) and bike rack (from $626.30).
