I posted a general introduction thread in the general section, but I haven't gotten replies to some of my questions that are more specific to life with a Model S in Minnesota. Thus, I'm starting a thread here to ask some of the questions that I have not been able to find an answer to. The first question concerns our MN annual registration costs. We currently are paying about $400 each annually for our Focus Electric & Fusion Energi (based on MSRP back in 2013 of $40k plus). When I try to put a Model S VIN into the MN DVS web calculator I get an error. It would be useful to know your Model S year, trim level (or whatever the correct term is to differentiate 70D vs 85 vs 85D vs P85 etc) & how much the state is gouging you for... I'm hoping one Model S wouldn't cost us more than $800 per year at the beginning. I tried asking this when I did a test drive this past Saturday and the store employees refused to tell me. The biggest potential road block to getting a Model S is the lack of Superchargers going NW along I-94. My wife is from Winnipeg, thus we make multiple trips to Winnipeg each year. Right now it would not be possible to make that drive via Superchargers & would be extremely difficult to make it at all. I hope that we'll see major progress this summer along that corridor. This past Saturday I decided to go to the Eden Prairie store to test drive a Model S. It was not a good experience, which I detailed here. Do any of the local owners have suggestions of who at the local store is better to work with? I know that there are a couple Tesla employees with recommendations on the EV Sales Savvy website. How would I go about working with a different Product Specialist without offending the one that I had who wasn't very good? Another concern based on stories I've read on the forum & in the media is service wait time. It seems that some service centers are really backed up. The Model S would be our only car, thus getting a loaner would be critical. What has been your experience with the Eden Prairie Service Center? How long is the wait to get an appointment? How do they do at having Model S loaners available? Finally, I'll be at our next MNPEVOC meeting on Thursday. Hopefully I'll see some of you there & will be able to learn more about the Model S. Thanks!!
