Thanksgiving delayed everything. The adjuster isn't even going to look at the car until Wednesday. I'm still in limbo, expecting the car to totaled.
I was slightly in shock afterwards, so I didn't think to turn off the emergency blinkers. With the HV battery disconnected, the 12V died overnight. I foolishly didn't get everything out the car the day of the accident, and am unable to get the car to open up. There are just a few things in there that matter (e.g., the Tesla umbrella that I got in the goodie bag when I picked up the car - Tesla no longer does goodie bags). I need to wait until the disposition of the car is determined before trying to get the door opened via the tow company.
I started thinking about replacement cars. Picking up a Model 3 overnight loaner today. Making appointments to drive a number of other EVs. However, I have a Tesla wall connector, and getting any other model EV would require a replacement EVSE. Not to mention dealing with other charging networks on long trips. The SuperCharger network makes all our trips so very trivial, so I will be hard pressed to buy a new EV that doesn't use it.
Which is why I'm thinking of used EVs, specifically a LEAF. There don't seem to be many around.
