The bike did arrive via freight, but I was the recipient and dealer. I had to register my bike by it's CC equivalent - so KW to horsepower, then research the world of motorcycles to see what size gas engine produces that power level. It took a few hours of research and prep before visiting the county office.
Nissan dealers in Bexar county will have the same 'challenge' (if it's really a challenge) because there is absolutely no way for the county to identify a vehicle as an EV in their current system.
There's a small Electric Auto Association chapter in town, and there are commercial EVs and conversions running around, but they're all registered as gas vehicles.
My concern at this point is that a politician is likely to scan the county vehicle registration records before deciding it would make sense to install a Level 2 charge point down town. And the search results will clearly show that there are zero EVs registered in the county. Garbage in, garbage out.
