no offense, and I will try to state it as mildly as possible, but I don’t care about EV opinions from anyone living in California. You guys seem to live in your own la-la land fueled by government sponsorship which then immediately gets negated by the completely outrageous taxation and cost of living.
I don’t need them to be in my neighborhood, I can charge at home (unlike millions of people who can’t), but I did check and there aren’t that many and the ones that are there seem to be in dealerships. There are giant spaces in the country where there is nothing at all. Also that map seems a little misleading as it lists private complexes, or at least so it seems at a glance
Great. That’s exactly when it will make sense, no reason for me to waste time and energy (haha) on it now. 10-15 years ago (don’t remember exactly) one of my friends was all about solar panels. The solar panels now are way better than his, the savings in electricity is nowhere near what he thought, because you know, NJ and the house is not turned exactly like it needs to be, but he has the badge of being an “early adopter”.
I’m all for other people being beta testers for EVs, killing themselves to test driving aids, etc. I’ll wait for production grade models.
Looking at the map the chargers exist where tourists go. I hate tourists, I want to go where locals go, screw the tourist traps. The best foods I’ve had, the coolest sites I’ve visited, and the weirdest people I’ve met were not on any map or tour guide. Noone puts chargers there unfortunately. The one place where this kind of backfired was Oahu though. Winding up in an area covered in posters of “kill all tourists” and similar, in a bright red wrangler was a bit scary
