Based on his spree of dislikes over weekend, he's obviously taking the refusal route. Oh well.
Friendly mod note: Can we lay off of @littlecloudy? He has requested an account and post removal upthread. That request has been pushed up the pipe, but until then we can probably move on with other on-topic conversation.
My first EV only had a 120 volt 12 amp charger and my second EV only had a 120 volt 15 amp charger. (see signature) It was OK (not great) but it did work. It was just a very slow process.
However with todays larger battery packs, having a NEMA14-50 outlet at home should be considered the bare minimum.
I think your concern is legitimate, but premature. The Roadster and the Model S were meant to change how people thought about electric cars, not be the electric cars everyone and anyone could own and drive. The Model 3 moves the crosshairs down market quite a bit. It will change how many more people view electric cars. But it's still not an electric car for everyone. You still need enough income to justify it, and you still need a way to charge it. For now, that means a garage or a stall with an appropriate outlet.
Once half a million members (and more) of this much bigger and much more middle market adopt an EV as their daily driver, I expect a tipping point in the shift to this new technology will be reached. Tesla will shift the crosshairs once again. This time, instead of targeting the BMW 3 Series, they will target the Honda Civics and Toyota Camrys of the world. And the charging infrastructure (as well as battery charge rates and capacities) will have improved to the point where small and relatively inexpensive electric cars become much more thinkable, even without a home-based charger.
And only costs mouse nuts. Selling all day on Angie's List for $299 by licensed electrician. People will spend more than that for a car cover.....
Lol! This is an internet forum. Don't like your account? Stop using it (and make a new one). Don't like the direction the thread is going? Stop reading it.
To be fair, most of those replies from after the removal request are to posts that appear before the removal request, so the users of those replies most likely hadn't seen the removal request.
I saw the request and hadn't planned to say anything else until he went on his dislike spree the day after his removal request.
Precisely my plans too. I have a main service panel that is expansion challenged, so I'm going to see if I can do without the 240V method. Have estimate on Friday, but if they want to replace entire panel or similar, nope will be my answer. I have 8, 24x7 superchargers a couple of miles from my house. When I'm headed for long range, go there for 20-30 minutes, drink a soda, possibly chat with fellow owners, and be on my way...
