Probably no EV will be able to hit these marks for a while. A diesel hybrid would probably will come to market first and get close to be effective at all these things. Hopefully they will give a plug in option when diesel hybrids comes to market.I typically drive about 400-450 miles per day. I usually haul and/or tow a lot of heavy equipment, furniture, etc., so I need something large and rugged with a lot of towing capacity. Basically I need a larger SUV or truck. Oh, and it has to be under $40K or I can't afford it.
Which electric vehicle would you recommend I buy?
Really with what is currently offered, a turbocharged diesel V6 that alot of manufactures have turned to would make the most sense. A normal gas hybrid doesn't make sense if you are towing alot and you are doing alot of highway miles.
Even if you had the money and the tow capacity was enough with the Tesla model X, I'm not sure the shorten range would make sense at all. You would be stopping alot and you would have to drive fairly slow to not absolutely kill your range.
