    If no charger at home then definitely get a Tesla and pay for the super chargers. They’re fast and they’re spread out everywhere. And you can charge at work.

    And you’ll love that car so much more than a bolt or any other EV on the market. They aren’t even in the same league.

    We have a Tesla and a charger at home and prefer to just charge it at the super chargers. 99% of the time. We’ve also taken it to LA and range anxiety isn’t a problem.

      You do realize that exclusively supercharging a Tesla battery back isn’t good for battery life? Granted that may be for the older 18650 cells and not the 2170 cells, but still, not worth finding out unless it’s a lease lol

      It’s fine. Charge it to 80% rather than 100%. Tesla optimizes for battery life. How is the competition better?

      The charge level isn’t the issue as much as the charge rate. Lithium ion chemistry doesn’t just change for Tesla. Supercharge it enough times and you’ll find out.

      This is negligible at best with the new model 3s. You won’t notice a difference.

    No charger at home IS an issue. Go Civic until you can get a Level 2 charger for your home. If your house has a 240 Volt dryer plug then you’ll be okay with a Tesla. You’ll thank me later for saving you the stress. If you’re in an apartment that doesn’t have any option to charge then don’t get the Tesla.

    Model 3 100% you can install a 240 volt dryer plug and charge at a 25 miles per hour rate. Plus once the Tesla Network goes live you can send your car out to give rides which will make you money while you work. Elon Musk estimates the average Tesla owner could earn $25K per year of passive income. Could a Civic do that? Oh and you won't be puffing poisonous gas into the air.

    Isn’t Tesla a luxury brand? Why would you want the cheapest option from a luxury brand?

    Depends on how far you drive to work/fun etc. If no charger at home, that might become an issue.
