It pretty much comes down too is it useful enough being able to charge at home and work, if you need to, to give up the extra space. Don't forget about taxes too, you really need to save enough money to pay for the difference. IMO

Am working at a dealership and we got a 2013 energi sel in a trade, and am thinking about trading my hybrid for it, mine is a 2013 hybrid se with 49000km (30247mi) and the energi have 102000km (62963mi) it's a sel with leather, roof and almost all options. Might have to pay 1000$ for it what you think??
30K extra miles on the plugin might be something to worry about as well given I have heard the CVT can have issues at higher mileage numbers.

Do you need / want all the options on the Energi vs the Hybrid SE? If you do, than paying $1000 and trading your SE in appears to be a very good deal based on clean retail values in the US. I would expect a normal consumer trading in an SE with 30k miles for a fully loaded Energi with 60k miles would have to pay at least $3000.
Also, doesn't Hydro-Quebec have the lowest cost electricity in Canada and likely less than virtually all suppliers in the US? This coupled with your relatively high cost of gasoline should give you fairly quick payback of the $1000. I'd do it even with the 30 k mileage difference.

If you don't need the extra trunk space of your Hybrid vs the reduced space in the Energi because of the larger battery, it sounds like a great trade.
You can pre-heat or pre-cool the Energi cabin while plugged-in, using a smartphone scheduling app.

Yeah electricity here cost .06¢/Kwh, and 90% of my commute is in the 20mi radius, so basically it will lower my fuel cost to nearly 0$ per week and I can charge it for free on a level2 at work. Also fuel cost is on a rising streak over here
I also agree if you don't need the extra space, it sounds like a great deal.
