Charging is a PITA. How often do you guys charge and do you do it at home or fast charging network.

the charging network over here still is abysmal, i wouldn't use an ev even if i'd get it for free. If i absolutely had to go electric i'd get an hybrid.

I do it at home, I don't use a supercharger unless I'm traveling. Work is close enough so I don't have to charge at work but I can if I need to since they have electric chargers there too.

I have used a Supercharger once. Otherwise all my charging has been done at home.

Serious question, how many km/miles do you drive a day?

Charging couldn't be easier. Plug it in at night and magically I have a fully charged car in the morning. More than enough range for my typical day. I've often gone several days without charging. Granted Covid has limited the need for some of the longer drives, but it has not been a problem for me whatsoever.

Then I don't really understand your concern or aversion.

Not having to go anywhere to fill up my car during normal day to day driving would be a big plus to me. Having to supercharge or whatever for longer travel, that's fine, but I don't travel long distances all too often.

Add to that the fact, that the _nearest_ (and only) charging station is around 6 kilometres from my working place (and no, it's not a fast charging one) and you'll get it, maybe. Oh, and since we're tenants, we couldn't even install a charging port at our house because the owner doesn't want it to be done. On top of that the prices of the ev's are a joke (a bad one).

This is a valid concern. For anyone that is renting/leasing a property I can see how that would make life difficult if the fast charging infrastructure is poor where you live.

Here in the US some states have been passing laws requiring landlords to allow installation of chargers.

it's just not an viable option (at the moment). On a sidenote: The development of electricity prices, at least over here, is terribad. Up, up and then some.... well, to be honest, you could say that for almost everything lately.

I think in the UK they've mandated new homes built include a charger.
But yes, unless you own a home, harder to access chargers.

Home charging will cost a lot in Dubai. At least that is my assumption. I run 5 GPUs for mining and my bill went up by $120 per month since then. It’s profitable since I am making about $600 a month but still.

My total fuel cost for 2 cars per month is about $80 lol.

anyone noticed how alot of new EV's are looking quite similar?

Squinty/thin headlights eyes, and possibly a lightbar connecting them on a grilleless face that is sloped?
And interiors are starting to look identical too.....full width dash screen from driver to center console or a big tablet attached to the top of center console

I thought the Battery/skateboard setup was supposed to allow designers the freedom to create unique looking cars....now they all look like they could have been made by a single manufacturer following the one sausage different size philosophy..
