OK, I appreciate that. I too apologize for getting heated.
Yeah, the charging infrastructure is huge for sure. That's going to be Tesla's leg up when the big manufacturers finally decide to put their weight behind EVs. It's something the people who like to predict doom and gloom for Tesla forget or try to ignore. I got to speak with a Nissan higher up who happened to be in Mie Prefecture when I was, and he said "we're fighting for our lives with Tesla abroad."
I wanted a Model 3 badly, but it's just not feasible over here. They don't even begin production on right-hand drive models until 2019 and I need a car absolutely right now. My wife wanted me to get a Honda Fit hybrid or Note series hybrid and hold out until the Model 3 finally comes, but I'm just ready to be done with gas and Nissan's charging network over here (7,000+ ChaDemo points at 50kW with unlimited use for ~$20 a month) sold it for me. As far as I know there are just 6 Superchargers in all of Japan, one of which has reportedly been closed for months. The only other options were a BMW i3 for $50K or a Mitsubishi iMiev for $24K, which is just a sick joke.
If I still lived in Colorado, I would have picked the Model 3 without a second thought, but the one thing I wanted to consider in this thread was the Leaf's place as an everyman's EV in the US. The original Leaf was basically the Prius of EVs. Now that the Model 3 is out and within reach of a lot of people, I wonder how it will fare. If SVs start to appear for $30K, $29K, $28K out the door or with attractive leases, I think it will prove an interesting alternative for many buyers.
