    Not sure where you got that info from, but 9 times out of 10, a charger is available for my Leaf. If I have to wait, it's only 30 minutes for a L3 charger when someone is ahead of me. 2-3 hours sounds like a Tesla line during a holiday.
    10 hours on L2, but the Leaf can charge on L3 up to 80% in 1 hour.

    Most public L2 chargers are more than 3,300 watts. Maybe you're mistaken because that's the limit of the Prime.
    There is not enough data on the Leaf yet since it came out as an 80 mile car. I don't think any 2nd Gen Leaf hit 200,000 miles yet but there are a few that has hit 100,000 miles and haven't lost its first bar yet. There are some Teslas with over 200,000 miles already.

    it's not that hysterical. It's realistically more like saying if you run your AC, it uses up gas faster in an ICE. Charging times are good or bad turning on how the individual manufacturers set up the car, not the public or home charging appliances. Those two issues are red herrings

    Can we consume our way to a better future?

    Us too. :cool:

    We have a 2016 Leaf and 2014 PiP. It’s great since it is an easy justification to get an L2 and the Prius benefits a from it as well. EV + PHEV is the magic formula as far as I’m concerned, I am just amazed more people don’t do it…. :confused:

    I plan to upgrade the PiP to a Prime sometime, but at this point I will likely just wait until the 2023 and possible redesign is unveiled, and make a decision then.;)

    But they were happy to welcome Tesla. Is it still the case that while Tesla is headquartered in Texas, they cannot sell them there, due to laws requiring cars to be sold by dealerships not associated with the manufacturer, which Elon is adamantly opposed to.

    I can't speak to the OP's rationale because if cost isn't an issue, getting the car with max eMPG is the wave. However, I'll say that for budget-conscious EV buyers, new Hyundai EV's still qualify for the full $7500 tax credit. A new Ioniq can be had for ~$21K before TTL with that factored in.
