2021 Highlander Platinum AWD
Which one you prefer and why?
One of these days they may all wake up to the fact that electrical regeneration efficiency is pitiful(around 30%). When they resolve that issue they will have the range needed to make the IC vehicle truly obsolete and it will cost less than any current technology, even the IC vehicle it will replace.
Until that time I will keep my two older vehicles that have cost me 31 gallons of fuel to drive them since 11/31/20.
What are the two highest cost incurred in driving any car, especially new ones. Kind of like asking anyone how many taxes you pay yearly (it's close to 100). The tea party was a revolt against a 3% tax.
You get about 85% of the energy when you charge a battery in an electric car. Better solutions will be coming soon I hope, but until then the early adopters will pay dearly.
Tesla model Y MSRP: From CAN$68,600Last time I checked, Tesla Y was around 140k Can$. Highlander Hybrid + 10 year of fuel is way less than that. Case closed.
yes even the cheapest Model Y with very basic features is 10 K more expensive than my fully loaded 2021 Platinum and its ride quality is very rough. 7 seater model Y is a joke .. 3rd row has only 2 seats with no leg or headroom. Only 2 little kids or a pet can sit in the 3rd row.Doesn't take much to bring it close to $100K all in when you add a couple of options. No thanks.
It was technically obsolete when you drove it off the lot...... But it should last a long time....
If your definition of “obsolete” is that it couldn’t be passed off as “new,” that’s going to happen in a couple years when Toyota does a mid-cycle refresh — my guess would be 2023.I have bought Highlander V6 few days ago and enjoying the ride and luxury of Platinum trim but ... worried that my car will be obsolete soon.
Sorry guys, I confused Model X with Model Y. Price for X is 112 990 $. Shame on me
