Yup.

The only difference in my household is the Tesla is probably replacing the Prius (Prime)
I'm quite happy with our LEAF for local duties.

I hope you’re talking the older Nissan Leaf. I routinely drive my 2018 leaf 50 miles one way on my daily commute and have driven it 80 miles one way multiple times with no issues other than making sure there’s a charging station to use while I go about my day.

Back to the model 3:

Odds are if a person isn’t on the reservation list by now then they could probably get the 60kwh 2019 Nissan Leaf before they can get their hands on a model 3. That version of the leaf will probably still be available with the tax credits but the model 3 tax credits will probably have run out.
The 60kwh version of the leaf should be competitive with the model 3 in every way except for as a status symbol and maybe the model 3 will be more “luxurious”.

and the battery degradation lawsuits? yeah, thought so.


So over it. ONE company is doing everything they can to bring about sustainable transport. The others? Just falling further behind the EV curve.

Oh well.

Carry on with your FUD. it's pretty entertaining.
On average EA is installing one chademo for each 4 - 5 CCS plugs so its coming along... But the real question becomes are the new stations compatible with the 2018 LEAF because most of the AV DCFCs along with all the Eaton L2s stations are not.

This is not even close to correct for the US

Oops.

Small loss so far though, since the EA roll-out is sloooooow

I don't know about slow but its obvious that Fly over country was passed over again.

And so, honest Elon upsells another sucker from this thread topic's long-promised-and-non-existent ~$35 k Tesla Model 3 SR to another vehicle that costs...how much, in reality?

Smart move.

That way, you'll still have something to drive, during your frequent long periods of waiting for your model 3 to get back from the shop...

Perhaps you mean “before they can get their hands on a model 3 SR”? If you choose an LR and perhaps add on additional options you can likely get a model 3 sooner.
