It is a pretty serious issue for DC fast charging. The standard in the US is effectively CCS (or Tesla), and almost all new EVs use CCS except for Nissan and maybe some other Japanese. CHAdeMO chargers are already being phased out, so even if it's not a major issue right now it will become a bigger issue.

If you expect to only use it local  and never need a public charger it won't make a difference.

Thanks for the info, I mostly drive locally to work but do plan to take it to upstate on weekends in summer so that wont work.

Follow up question: Is the $7500 tax credit only for pure electric or also for hybrids?

Gov gives out a $7500 tax credit for electric vehicles but only for the first 200,000 for each manufacturer (Tesla and GE already sold 200k so the credit is not applicable to them). The $7500 credit is not a refund it means that if you owe at least $7500 in taxes at the end of the year you pay $7500 less on your tax bill.

It needs a plug. PHEV can qualify.

From the IRS:
"For vehicles acquired after 12/31/2009, the credit is equal to $2,500 plus, for a vehicle which draws propulsion energy from a battery with at least 5 kilowatt hours of capacity, $417, plus an additional $417 for each kilowatt hour of battery capacity in excess of 5 kilowatt hours. The total amount of the credit allowed for a vehicle is limited to $7,500."

ETA: Minimum battery size for 7500 credit is 17kWh. Under 5kWh gets nothing and between 5 and 17 gets partial credit.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Lease started 11/2020
Today I'm handing it back to Rodo.
Here's the breakdown:
Your offer is $27,600
Your payoff verified by Honda is $23,247.59
Your Equity check will be $4,352.41

call leasing direct in crown heights. when i leased and looked around they were the best prices. they claim to beat everyone else by about $500 when all is said and done. plus they have great service.
googe leasing direct ny but call because the prices on their site doesnt really reflect the good current deals....
