With the fuel price what it is at the moment?
I want to buy an EV but there are only two choices under R1m in SA and the BMW i3 is EOL, leaving the Mini SE with a 200km range. I'm thinking that EVs won't retain their value well due to being new and changing all the time. I really want a Hyundai Ioniq 5 but expect we'll only see it in a few years.

A Land Cruiser on the other hand retains it's value very well. I will mostly be driving it short distances so petrol won't be much of an issue. In any case the Brent crude price is falling so I expect petrol to become cheaper again. A series 200 Land Cruiser will be good for many many years.

I also have an eye on EVs but am way to tight to spend the kind of money they go for. I don’t know if that’s going to improve any time soon - as long as people are paying the asking price for EVs, they’re not likely to get much cheaper.
