Ideas on how to secure a EV parking space while waiting for MX


Aug 11, 2015
[COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]I'm moving to a new construction condo towards the end of the year and in order to get an EV parking spot with a charger I need to own an EV. Unfortunately, I have a US 11,xxx reservation number for MX and although I live in SF, it looks pretty certain that I won't get mine this year (and I currently have an ICE sedan). Not sure if there is a good solution here but wanted to see if anyone had a suggestion. I suppose I could ditch my current car and lease an EV but I have never leased a car before and not sure if there's a short term leasing that would fit my need. Living in the city, I'm mindful of the number of parking spots I need to maintain so timing of when I get a new vehicle and get rid of existing one will matter as well (although not critical - more for convenience).

How will they handle all the people who get EVs later? Seems like a very odd policy. Anyways, if you really need to show proof, I'd just buy a Chevy Spark or Leaf or some dirt cheap used EV and resell it after you've secured your spot.

There are websites that let people take over leases. You could find an EV with a few months left on the lease to assume.

It's not entirely clear, but why would you need an EV parking spot with a charger before you actually have your EV? Is it not possible to get the spot later once your Model X arrives?
