Not if the Model E will be Supercharger capable, as Musk has suggested (how they will keep the smaller battery from frying on a Supercharge is unclear to me).
Being able to use the Supercharger network means that many people, including me, would be able to go with no ICE car as a backup. Chademo is fine for doubling the range of a LEAF but a thousand mile trip is downright easy on the Tesla Supercharger network
