Should you buy an EV in 2023? Or wait?

I hear this question a lot and I get it: EVs have never been better, gas ain’t getting cheaper and the tax credits won’t last forever.

Still, I’d strongly recommend buying a hybrid over an EV for now. They’re cheaper, they hold their value better and while you’ll still have to visit QuikTrip, getting 55 MPG means you’ll actually pay less for a “fill-up” than an EV.

But here’s the real kicker: Consumer Reports ranked hybrid cars as the most reliable segment while PHEVs/EVs were among the least.

It’s best to wait and get the underrated Hyundai Sonata Hybrid instead.
