Why did you choose this electric car?
Researching solar + battery installation at home and a great dealer offer to buy back my 3 yr old diesel car prompted me to look into EVs. After research I decided now was the time to go electric and the IONIQ 5 stood head and shoulders above all for me as price, performance, efficiency, tech and looks + very local dealership matched my aspirations.
