Yes I own the cheapo Nissan Leaf, a 2014 variety, but I've been looking to upgrade and the offerings are just not there for cargo carrying capacity. If I want to wait until the ID Buzz gets to America, maybe 2 years maybe never, I might have a vehicle that can carry some real cargo. For sure the manufacturers are not seeing the electric car as a game changer just yet, the investment while substantial is not at that level (maybe except for VW) so my options are limited. I could buy something that went 250 miles, which is a reasonable range, but those are small cargo cars--the Niro the Soul the Bolt and the Leaf (not yet at 250). All these other soon to be entrants are expensive and geared to the luxury market. I doubt EV will be the big carbon reducing product if it's not affordable to many.

How about this one for cargo carrying?

Have you considered the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid? 30 miles-ish electric, the rest is petrol.
