I just got my S85D a couple days ago and ended up at one of the nearby Ford Dealerships yesterday. First a list of a number of things I learned: The dealer was a very nice, pleasant person. I got free energy there (J1772 adapter worked well). I am welcome back for free energy 24/7. I might be able to get a charge at any Ford dealership that has a charging station (I would guess they all use J1772 and that the Ford Focus EV does because that is what they had available). Ford trucks are very big in Nebraska (I really knew that but I say that after actually looking at the inventory). Ford does not have a car or truck near the price range of a Tesla. Ford is for the masses. The dealer was well aware of Tesla Model S. Though both I and my friend said the word "Tesla" multiple times, the dealer said the word "Telsa" every time (my friend and I are polite and didn't see any reason to correct him, and when he kept doing it, there was an interesting subtextual issue going on, in my mind, with the issue "why would someone keep saying Telsa when two others nearby are saying Tesla?") The dealer praised many times the technology of Tesla. The dealer said, at least a couple times, that electric cars are the future. He has not sold or ordered a Focus EV. When I moved in that direction a couple times, indicating that I liked the Focus, that I didn't need the Focus to go that far because I had a Tesla to do that, he mad no attempts to sell me an EV. He was honest about the limited range of the Ford EV and did not sound like he would really like to sell one to anyone because of the "70 miles" it could travel. I think those are the main things. My opinion: he says that EVs are the future on the one hand and is doing very little to go in that direction, even stopping it by not wanting to sell EVs. My opinion: there are two kinds of EVs, in general: Teslas, a practical albiet expensive, EVs and commuter cars that are inexpensive and not very practical and do not do much to promote EVs. I don't mean to put them down--I have looked at many and wanted one but held back buying/leasing one because I can't drive to the next town and back with one. My opinion, based on limited experience: Tesla is the only company in reality (some others might be doing so behind the scenes that I am not aware of, take Apple, as an example) that is committed to EVs.
