Pre Purchase

Recommended Posts

Where are you from? Canada, London Ontario.

What car do you drive? We will be buying an electric car in September.

What's the longest trip you've taken in your EV?


I am using a better route planner to review the options with regard to range and charging options on particular routes.

That's a great use for the planner! What are you considering?

Head spinning. Going to lease.

Tesla Model 3 would be immediate choice if it were not for the closest service centre being 150km away. Added to that a whole day for a service. So it has to be planned with possibly a day of work and a guarantee that the service would happen. Add in possibly need for non service visits. Also lets see how the test drive goes. Not a fan of almost everything on a touch screen. Reaching for levers, buttons and knobs is more convenient for us. Not a deal breaker by its self.

This will be my wife driving the car. She is a lawyer and just wants the car to work. She has other priorities:) No jumping through hoops. Currently with the GM Volt an oil change is 30minutes. If longer dealer drops her at work and then picks her up. She loves the Volt but the lease will be up in September with the car being discontinued. Her daily commute is usually 40km round trip. The Volt is perfect (well okay not perfect considering fossil fuel also being used). 

The Hyundai Kona EV & Kia Nero have not started arriving yet plus no idea on wait times for delivery once ordered. 

The Bolt not great value. 2019 Leaf no way. 

Luckly for us the GM, Kia, Hyundai, Nissan dealers plus a few more are on the way to work. 

I realize the Model 3 is probably a better bar but there are day to day considerations.
