Great read in the September issue of [email protected] They reviewed 20 EV’s and from my perspective the Ocean is an absolute bargain in comparison. Between price and performance, I think this would have been the hands down winner.

Another note, Car & Drivers tag line is “Intelligence, Independence, Irreverence.

The problem with Car and Driver is they tend to stick with one brand /model forever and it takes a sea change (or an Ocean??😁) to convince them otherwise.
Well, C&D has only had the EV COTY for two years now. 2021 had the Ford Mach-E and this year the Ioniq 5. EVs are changing rapidly, I expect a different manufacturer each year.

[email protected] They reviewed 20 EV’s
The 7 most expensive EV's tested average MSRP: $130,700 (wealthy folk)
Second tier 8 EV's tested average MSRP: $74,400. (Well off folks)
Third tier of 4 Everyman EV tested average MSRP: $45,500 (more than Average JOE)

Thus, logically makes sense that The Hyundai Ioniq 5 would WIN
Sure is a beauty!

Betting both brands (Ford & Hyundai) heavily advertise in the C&D magazine

Fisker Ocean ULTRA should be the tested model at $70,000-$75,000 average MSRP
Alas, since Fisker Inc does not believe in magazine advertising,
the Fisker Ocean will NOT win the 2023 C&D EV Coty

The Model S was top ten for 2 years. Obviously, the 3 or Y would not make the top 10 as they are such "niche" vehicles unlike the TWO Cadillac Blackwings that made the list. I still don't understand how all EVs are clumped together - how many people are cross-shopping the Chevy Bolt with the Lucid Air?

I think I prefer the MotorTrend rankings/awards - they have multiple EV categories and include EVs in the overall awards. EVs currently have both the Car of the Year (Lucid Air) and Truck of the Year (R1T) awards.

If i had a dollar for everytime….😂
We have had 3 whippets since 2002 and you would not believe how many people named theirs’ “Devo”.
I go for less traditional names , Reddi- because he was a red/white mix and his favorite food was RediWhip, Jet - because that sucker could fly, and now we have Hayden named after the bourbon. J.Basil Hayden when he is in trouble 😁
