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?

We added about a thousand miles to our 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk for February 2016 and averaged about 21 mpg.

    the bigger cherokee gets the same milage with the same engine combo, at least its a bit bigger, and imho better looking. I'd still hate how slow and gas guzzling the cherokee was when I put 3,000 miles on it. 22-24 mpg on the freeway. And I have no idea when the thing actually uses 9th gear. 85mph - no, 65mph - no. whats the point?

    jeep renegade limited fwd 0% for 60 months and $1k bonus cash advertisement on this page... hmmmm... can't imagine why the need for generous incentives when subcompact cuvs are all the rage...

    ad claims "over 390-mile driving range"! with the legal disclaimer: "Based on manufacturer estimated 31 hwy mpg and 12.7-gallon fuel tank, 4x2. Actual mileage may vary."

    YMMV indeed.

    I've gotten similar mileage out of my 2002 4Runner (3,800lbs, V6 4wd 4 speed auto). My record is 20.43, and I've seen 19+ several times. This isn't apples to apples, I just feel that a 4 cylinder crossover shouldn't be getting comparable gas mileage to a 14 year old body on frame 6 cylinder SUV.

    Wait - your gas prices start with a "3"?! Wow, here in non-California-land, we're still near $2/gallon. I hope you guys don't give this pig a pass when it's time for the wrap-up.
