I currently have an MX on order for December delivery. I wanted to share a story from this morning. My public parking garage at work (about 20 minute drive from my house) has no EV spots (yet at least). Out of curiosity I looked at the PlugShare app and sure enough the public garage one block away has 2 EV spots (2 stations of EV plug J1772). I took a walk over to see the garage and the EV spots. The monthly parking rate is the same for both garages. There are several office buildings in the general vicinity of my office, as well as an apartment complex, that utilize these parking garages. Most of my charging would be at home but still I was curious and perhaps I would consider changing garages to have the use of these EV spots. Anyway, both spots are taken. I ask the attendant in the office whether the spots are usually taken, and I am told yes. In fact, she tells me that the parking garage manager owns the car in one of the EV spots (it is a Chevy Volt). Keep in mind this is a County owned garage with County paid employees running it. I ask what time he gets to work and she says about "6:30 am" and that he works all day and parks there every day. Now, I don't want to start a debate with the lady in the garage office, but I ask "so this means there is really only 1 EV spot if the manager takes this spot every day" and she says "yes". I ask if she thinks this is unfair that the spots are supposed to be shared with the public and she does not respond. I thank her for her time and leave her office. But before I leave the garage, I walk over and look at the J1772 and sure enough it says "vehicle full - charging stopped". This is at 9:15 am. This aggravates me because I quickly realize that this guy is hoarding this spot all day to the exclusion of others and his car is fully charged! Ultimately I suppose there is nothing to stop him from doing this. And then it hit me. At these public garages near office buildings, people probably get there at zero-dark-thirty in the morning and park their EVs and leave them there for the day, so there is probably never an open spot. Is this the norm for garages near office buildings? I will do my charging from home so its not a major issue but I will not change garages due to this understanding. I am more curious as I am not in the EV world yet whether this is the norm - that people park for the day and leave cars all day in the public spot.
