Tesla built a supercharger, but I doubt that we'll see SAE Combo L3 charging station in our province for at least 5 years. ....
For that reason, driving it home doesn't save me any money so I would just ship the car all the way to Edmonton.
Aww, no 82 mile EPA rated range EV Road Trip postings.....
But I totally see your point. Someone needs to buy the non-DCFC Spark EV's. And you, with your Solar setup, would be a model EV owner !!
Negotiate with the sellers about "how disappointed you are that the car doesn't have this very important option". "It will be very hard to sell". You would be willing to "buy it for $1000 less".
Good Luck ! Go get those dogs !
Although,, I can see the case for Tesla to come around and start selling access to the Superchargers to other EV's.
Currently Tesla's model is the Superchargers bring NO MONEY, forever. Selling access would at least allow them to start making money off the supercharger network.
Only time will tell if there will a Tesla-to-SAE Combo adapter cord
and a method for Tesla to sell the electrons,, (for a change) !
Tesla currently sells a Chademo-to-Tesla
Used '14 2LT w/ DCFC. +78 K miles.
Mostly free charging! Only one LONG visit to the shop....
GM needs Modern Troubleshooting tools for Modern EV's.
3 step Trouble Tree, 1st try car died again, 2nd try not covered / cost $800. 3rd try fixed the problem.
