I skipped all of those iterations and went from a 2006 Prius to a 2021 Mustang Mach-E in one go. =D Well, there in the middle I also purchased a 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid, which I also still have. I gifted my 2006 Prius to my 88 year young parents just before the Mach-E arrived, because we don't have room for, nor do we need, three cars. =D
2000 Subaru Forester, which abruptly gave up the ghost and led to a 2013 Prius. I was almost about to buy a used Leaf to putter around town, but was instructed by wife that I needed to have a real backseat for the car seats etc. Was almost going to do Rav4 Prime or Escape PHEV, but decided to jump off the deep end into the MME as a full BEV. No regrets yet!
My last 2 ICE vehicles were Subaru, a 2003 Forester then a 2010 Legacy Outback.
I got a 2018 Chevy Volt, I was not really happy with it, after 4 months I traded for a 2018 Honda Clarity - more room, more comfort, with Honda quality.
My wife's Hyundai Accent was getting old and we got a used 2016 LEAF (30kwh) which she is still driving - she was not very interested in it until she drove it, from that point she loves it. She ran the range down into single digits a couple of times, but it got her home (1 charge at chargepoint pubic charger)
I reserved a MME Premium on 1/1/20, converted to order, then sidestepped into the FE which is now about 3 weeks old to me. The PHEVs were always meant to be interim until better choices were available.
