If you try to commute with it, you will need 120-volt charging at work (especially in cold weather) and 240-volt charging at home. You can probably make the round trip when it is warm until the battery starts to deteriorate if it still has low rolling resistance tires and they are inflated to at least 40 psi. The electric parking brake is nice--I miss it on my 2015 and have already had the foot pedal parking brake fixed/adjusted twice under warranty. Someone mentioned that the ones with electric parking brake cannot be pushed if the traction battery is depleted, but that is not correct.
Once I get the car, I'm going to make a couple dry runs to see how things go. Tomorrow I'm heading to the hospital in my gasser to "check" the facility out for charging options.
What low resistance tires do you recommend?
