Yes, this will be my first ev.
In my opinion, Honda and Toyota have become stale. I had a few civic hatchbacks before, even had a crz once but that should've been a bev. Honda doesn't seem to be forward looking anymore. Toyota reminds me of Buick, nothing exciting. Did look at Tesla, but they remind me too much like an Apple product, no offense to Apple people, I'm more of an Android person.
When looking for the car i have now, was going to get a Mustang, stopped by the Kia dealer and feel in love with the Stinger. Realized at that point Kia and Hyundai have bold and exciting new designs and more technology for the money.
As for why i chose the ev6? I like some aspects of the ionic 5, but it comes down to style. IMO, i like the looks of the ev6 more then the ionic 5.
