I actually work only a few hundred yards from the factory in Fremont. Has anything changed, other than MUCH, MUCH more demand for spare parts as the sales volumes increase? https://www.sfgate.com/cars/article/tes ... 796037.php
Since any EV I own will be at least my 4th car, I'm not really concerned about range or charging issues. I charge at home and at work, and I get there early enough to have my choice of the two chargers no more than 50 feet from my office. I used to charge just at work since it's cheaper, but my disaster preparedness instincts tell me to never let the battery go so low that I can't simply drive home. I'm very close to a couple of major fault lines, and each day that passes is one day closer to the next big quake.
I only have an EV to play the idiot liberal games here in CA anyway. A new EV allows me to save about an hour each day on my one hour combined commute. The cost of fuel is moot, as I'm a Sr Staff Program Manager in Silicon Valley. We're well compensated here. My biggest concern is personal safety when driving the FFE. It's simply too small to feel safe in, IMO.
