We may buy out the car after lease. We will also take a cross country trip soon
Maybe I will see resale values when it is time. If it drops to 2k I will buy then sell the car and maybe get the 2k back.Don't forget, that last 20% takes 30-40 minutes to charge.
Really useful to wake up with 100% before a long trip, but you really don't want to be sitting at a supercharger going for 100% on a non-restricted battery.
Then again, the 75D will fetch more in a private sale than a 60D would, so you'll get back some of the dough.
Was planning on buying it out. Love it so much
Someone hit my car and it may be totaled. If it is (very likely) getting a new car (75D). Here is the thread ACCIDENT!!!FWIW: The factors that convinced me to get the larger (in my case 100kWh) battery were not that it accumulates available mileage quicker at the superchargers (although it does that too), nor that my daily commute would cycle the battery to a lesser degree (although it does that too) but rather, that I could achieve various day trips without even charging en-route. Whereas my previous X75D would incur the necessity for a mid-trip charge on our weekend routes (locating, detouring, waiting for & at supercharger - first world problems I admit) I can now readily round-trip from east bay SF to Monterey, Santa Cruz, Napa & well beyond without even thinking about where/when/if to charge. Just plugin at home of an evening, like my phone.
This has undoubtedly (although somewhat unconsciously) expanded our candidate destinations on weekends That's worth a lot to my family.
I admit some of these advantages are specific to a more electrically voluminous (physical) battery (vs. the software unlock which realistically, won't change your charge rate, nor cycle-wear for a fixed commute distance) but the day trip logistics might bring significant value for your use-case if there are frequent destinations that are just out of reach with the 60D sans-supercharge.
As always, the answer is "it depends".
For me, this has been an enormous advantage & I'd definitely do it again given the choice.
