No. I'll buy an EV once the cost-per-mile gets near or below ICE, and the full recharge rate is not measured in hours. Oh, and the car is not designed to appease a bunch of tech/enviro geeks.

Yeh, I need a little better range, and a lot shorter recharge time.
But a lot of the car tests are preferring the Tesla over the BMW 3 and other competitors for driving dynamics. If so, I could dig that, & I could be a tech/enviro geek (clean boy) as a bonus!

At speed, the suspension is wallowy.

But hey, the seat fart noise thing is neat

For a 7 year old. The owner tried to demonstrate the fetch mode. Lol. His car got confused and just gave up. We could have walked over to it in have the time it took to get confused and stop. IMO, It's an unattractive person lacking in redeeming qualities.
I appreciate your take!
