Problem was charging , my gas guzzler took 10 mins or so to top up he took been 1and 1/2 hours and 2 hrs. Guess it's great if you love service station's
Same for me i would never change back to ICE. I have an Ionic and i have only had to charge on a public charger once, rest of the time i charge at home on a 7Kw charger.

To me, personally, that sounds like you're a perfect candidate for an electric car

SWMBO has a Q4 E Tron sportback 40 and it will only ever need to be charged at home.

Mine has much less range, but don't care it's too much fun

Add solar panels & batteries into the mix and it's peanuts to charge them both.

I must admit to loving the acceleration, It is nearly as fast as the BMW 530D that the wife drives.

Id suggest against a hybrid then increased complexity for not much return
