Kia and Hyundai to build EVs in Mexico

I've been accused of being a tree-hugger for many years. Our house is highly energy-efficient, with solar electricity generation and water heating. We recycle what we can. It takes a 50-mile drive to do so, but we combine that with our weekly shopping trip to Missoula. There are no public vehicle charging stations in our area, that I'm aware of. When I first heard of electric vehicles, charging took several hours. Presumably, that has gotten better. In Montana about half the electricity is generated by fossil fuels. While I'm keenly aware of our climate problems, when it became time to replace our old car. we opted for a hybrid Honda CRV, which gets around 40 miles per gallon of gas. My truck, used as little as possible, gets around half that. Am I in love with the Honda? Not particularly. All that electronic stuff is a pain for an old fart but, all in all, it helps us do our little bit for the climate. Bottom line: there are many things to consider before getting that new vehicle.
