It’s probably going to come down to how often you would need to charge and if the location is convenient for doing other things, like errands or grabbing a cup of coffee or something. Since it’s a lease, I wouldn’t worry much about battery degradation due to exclusive DCFC, especially if you don’t charge it to 100% and leave it that high.I have been interested in an EV for some time. Have an opportunity to lease a 2022 ID4 Pro at a great price with both federal and state incentives (We live in Southern NJ) but need some advise. My wife and I are retired, she’s 71 and I’m 67 and we are unable to home charge. The closest Electrify America public station is only 5 minutes from our home. My wife is really against getting an EV due to charging times, etc. we only have one vehicle so this would be our primary car. Does it make sense to move forward with getting the ID4 or is my wife right that it’s not practical for us? Thanks for any advice as I’m really struggling with this decision.
Also I’m assuming you’re aware that you can charge the car (slowly) with a 120V outlet, but just wanted to mention it because if you’re not driving a ton each day that can probably recoup the miles you drive.
