So many 2+ vehicle households with a place to plug-in at home. How are there not already so many more folks that have a Leaf or Bolt or Ioniq BEV as their second driver vehicle? Doesn't even pass the upfront "but the cost" test any longer.
ioniq BEV for the US is a compliance car. Per https://www.hyundaiusa.com/us/en/vehicl ... q-electric
, "Sold in select states" which leads to "Available in California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont."
Live outside those states and want an Ioniq BEV? Have fun with that, esp. when it comes to service...
One problem is that some of the deals may not be well known. Some people just Google for or know about the (crazy high for this day and age) MSRP on Bolts and then see the price of the Model 3... guess which one they go for?
Folks balk at the charging time (for no reason) on level 2. And, many may balk at having to spend an unknown amount of $ to install an L2 EVSE. In some cases, it can be high (http://www.myrav4ev.com/forum/viewtopic ... 8264#p8264
like for me isn't the highest I've heard. Back in 2011, I recall hearing of even $6K.)
