Well put. My ideal vehicle right now is a PHEV that can get 50-60 miles of EV only range. Possibly turning on the gas engine minimally just to keep it good running condition. That is enough to get me through my daily commute. However, it is still going to be a good long while before long trips are as nice in an EV as they are in a ICE. Telsa isn’t terrible with their fastest charging, but still can’t compete with the speed of a fillup.

Also, from an environmental standpoint, making PHEVs makes WAAAAAY more sense right now. Electrified vehicles are MASSIVELY limited by battery availability right now and that will be the case for several years to come. So what makes more sense? Making one EV that can go 300 miles on a charge or making 6 PHEVs that can go 50 miles on a charge? A PHEV with 50 miles of range will allow most people to get 90%+ of their driving in without gas.

This is why it was dumb of the house democrats to add a 2.5 gallon gas tank limitation to the build back better EV tax credit clause (it never passed). If we really want to focus on what is best for the environment, PHEVs will be the best option as long as battery supply is a limiting factor.
