Loosing your humour?Well done! Do you have 3 phase power available at home?
I still have doubts they will take off....Hybrids arent in the same market space as EVs. A hybrid is just a range extended ICE vehicle after all. I think they started off with the Prius in the small car segment purely because of the battery and technology limitations at the time.
A lot of those constraints for pure EVs have been solved now and just needs economies of scale to get the cost down. Economies of scale can come with the “second car” market that I’ve mentioned above.
Well Elon Musk is doing his best to try and make EVs a success. Every other car manufacturers fingers smell like sh!t!I still have doubts they will take off....
It started with hydrogen powered cars, used cooking oil or vegetable powered diesels....LPG powered cars, then Hybrids, now EV's all going to be the next great alternative to straight petrol powered cars....
For what ever reason, all these have fallen off in some way or another and I suspect the same will apply with the hybrids and ev's....
I also look every couple of days at these, to compare any Cross6s with mine, just for interest. I have it insured for $8,200.It just so happens I started looking at Cross 8’s for sale again. Here’s 3 in Australia on Gumtree, Carsales, Autotrader. Now I was looking multiple times a day, everyday.
Prices are going up quick by the looks. I bought my SSV right before the covid shite hit the fan for $15k off Carsales from a dealer with 165k on the clock and the general market price here in QLD was around 20k and there were about half a dozen for sale in QLD.This is all getting out of hand.
Was talking to one of my neighbours and he brought up this subject, about the value of VF’s at the moment.

Two of these are still for sale since July. The price has gone up, not down.
Now when I started looking back in 2019, $8k-$12k was the going price and there were enough.
Mid 2020 $10k-15k for 100000km-200000km.
Now a VY2 for $20k and high k’s! I found some other low spec (less airbags, no climate, no leather seats etc) VY2 Cross 8’s for more than $20k and they were rough inside.
No VZ’s (Cross 8’s), almost at all, come up anymore.
This is all getting out of hand.
