Not sure if I am ready for fully electric car. Charging is a challenge since the apartment doesn't have one. I will have to do it at work but what if I leave current employer?.

    Volvo only because Tesla wont be around long enough to service the car.

      They’re cutting production of the model x and s, laying off people, and have a mountain of debt, $900 million of which is coming due in a few months. Interest rates are rising and debt is becoming more expense to service. Oh, and they can’t turn a profit and have bet the company on the model 3 which they can barley build profitably. Hyperbole.

  • Tesla : I too worried about the charging anxiety, but I’m here to tell you that you probably won’t worry about it after the first week, max. After that you’ll realize that it’s actually a lot like having a regular car. When there are so many superchargers available and you get 310 miles of range, it’s honestly not something you’ll worry about for long (Anecdotal, but it’s backed by feedback from a lot of other EV owners)

    I charge for free at work every day, Round trip commute is about 90 miles, I’ve only had to charge it over the weekend once or twice in the six months we’ve had the car. We do have another car that’s an ICE car, so that helps with some of the anxiety knowing we always have a back up. But even then once I saw the sheer amount of money I was saving in fuel, I knew I had made the right decision without a doubt.

    https://forums.tesla.com/ : Spend some time on the forums, might help you feel more prepared to make a decision. Happy to answer any other questions you have, feel free to PM if you want.

    XC40 for the all inclusive hassle free leasing option they offer.

      Mostly because I drive to/through remote areas all the time and hate the idea of needing to plan ahead for charging. Also I doubt the cars are made very well and don’t respect the company

    Tesla all the way. ICE will have no resale value 5 years from now. Tesla taking off like rocket

    Are you over the age of 40 and wear cardigans with leather patches on the elbows or Swedish? Then buy the Volvo. Otherwise buy the Tesla

      If you have midlife crisis or doing the needful then buy Tesla.

    W/o the ability to charge at home electric car would be a PITA. As for Volvo - you don't plan to keep it after warranty expires, do you?

    Tesla. It's overpriced for a slightly better reason.
