Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

    Acceptable mpg for a car with this level of performance and refinement. My son averages about 24.5 mpg in his 2011 GTI Autobahn (DSG) and that is all in town - plus he drives like a jerk...I've done a country drive in the Mk VI noted above - that included a brief stint at 120 mph (yes - being a jerk also) and got over 31 mpg for a 50 mile jaunt. Still a vehicle that punches above it's price class in a lot of areas.

    I've got 7,000 miles on my 2015 GTI, and with mostly rural and suburban driving, I'm averaging around 33mpg. In the summer months, it's a bit higher when you drive conservatively.

    It's interesting, the CLA did much better than this with similar specs and was still panned for it's mileage.
