New electric cars on average across all brands had 79% more problems reported than ICE models.

Are there any chargers that aren't hardwired, and qualify for charge up nj and the jcp&l rebate.

Anyone have experience with Polestar 2?  At $299 lease with Costco incentive of $2000 on down payment seems like a steal, but based on my research its safety features are less than idea (e.g., too sensitive, ironically potentially causing more safety issues than it solves)

I've seen the ioniq 5 leasing for under $300 a month at some dealerships. In my opinion, you get much better bang for your buck, as it charges much more quickly and comes with two years of free EA charging. I've put in over 30,000 miles on my own ioniq 5 and I'm loving it!

the 2 year ea charging is becoming less and less valuable as the lines get worse and worse. unless you charge at major off hours you can frequently expect an hour wait to charge.

This is location dependent, but I fully acknowledge this sentiment. On road trips, I found that when I specifically charge at non-EA stations, I can get moving on my trip much more quickly because there's no wait times.

For the first 9 months I had my car, I did not have a charger at home so it was super helpful to have the free access.
