2016 Baby Blue with DCFC 18K miles and have hit 115 on the GOM thanks to the NYC traffic. Con Edison has a program with FleetCarma Where you get monthly payments for avoiding Peak hours. I received $150 just to join, and now recieve $0.10 per kWh for charging between midnight and 8AM AND $20.00 per month if I never charge between 2PM and 8PM, AND $5.00 per month just for participating.
It works out that I basically get paid the more I drive withe free electricity.
My son in Peekskill loves it with his Model 3, as this is his only car.
We even get spreadsheets that track absolutly everything (except location driven).

It's a shame that EVs are so rare here.
Some of the issues that are killing the acceptance of EVs here are: In a city with over 8 million people, there is only 6 DCFCs in the entire city with none in car dependent Staten Island with a population of 1/2 million; and a peak period rate of $0.39 per KWh (BTW peak period here is 8:00 Am to midnight every day of the week. )
