To me, it would seem this would be a no-brainer. I can't see many people who would buy this car only for long trips since it's not as convenient as an ICE (at least until we get the supercharger/battery swap infrastructure in place). It's also not a weekend only fun car like my Ferrari, which I can't leave anywhere like the movies for fear of vandalism, etc. and it's only a 2 seater to boot. The Model S seems like the perfect DD unless you commute over 250 miles a day, and even that only applies if you don't have a way to "top off" while at your job. Pre-warm/Cool the interior via app, no startup noise waking up the wife/kids (try that in the Ferrari!). The ONLY downside I can see is that using it as a DD with the 21" tires will be more expensive than it would be with the 19's or another cheaper tire, but if you are spending 100K on a car, I would guess you could afford the tires.
I like that it's so smooth in stop and go traffic, one peddle driving with heavy regen is the best, and that I never have to take time out of my commute to stop and get gas because I fill up at home every night!
Yes it is. 23ish miles each way. I love almost everything about it as a commuter car. I've only ever owned one car at a time, so I'm not sure what people look for in a commuter; to me, it's all the same--daily driver, weekend getaway car, road trip car, etc. So it's tough to pick out which things are especially good for commuters but might not matter as much for errands, trips, etc. Quiet, comfortable, amazing acceleration, not stopping for gas, regen braking...I think I'm going to list everything about the car, so I'll stop now.
