I have a handicapped placard, so I use the larger handicapped spaces when more than one is free.

To paraphrase a line I find amusing -- I would never join a club that would accept the likes of me.

At work there is no one else with one, so the answer is no. But we do have a few model 3's and a model y and a Chevy bolt that park around the same area. I don't think its to purposefully keep all the EVs near each other, but rather we park near where our work area is, and the EV folks all seem to get to work around the same time. In my specific work group of about 60 people there are probably about 6 EV drivers. Never really counted them though.

Can't say that I do. I always park far away at the end of a row to avoid door dings. By and large it works. All of our cars remain pretty much ding-free.

I will say that once I develop an interest in a specific vehicle, I start to notice them more. A lot more. I'm sure it's a matter of selective perception.

I haven't had any experience with anyone even recognizing our Leaf as an EV. So far so good. Hope our luck holds that way.

No, but I will note that I notice other EVs (mostly Teslas in Orange County) on the road a lot more, now that I'm driving one.

I will also note that at times, in parking lots, I find myself treated like I was driving "The Invisible Car."

Like others, I like to park far away for various reasons, but other EV drivers here don't seem to do that.
Leafs are rare animals in my area, so I don't get a chance to see or park by many. Teslas have gotten more popular here, but I typically see them parked close to the stores. I've also seen more Bolts grazing at the charge stations, but not many parked by me.

There are few Leafs in my area (North Texas). With the Covid 19 shutdown, the Leaf parks next to the 74 Beetle I’ve owned since new...
