Current EV technology isn't reliable enough to buy a new EV this upcoming year and have it last 8-10 years IMO. I even argue 2-3 years might be the normal car exchange lifecycle for an EV.Potato Patoto. Depost Order Fee. Same difference. Market is certainly nuts. I only want to do this once as I didn't want to do the buyback on the Bolt which is a fun car to drive. But the restrictions have spread and made it not very usable IMO so, here I am. Just glad there is another EV that interests me.
Bjorn's Ioniq 5 1000km test scares me a little. The charging rate is AMAZING but that car has some battery thermal management issues: no pre-conditioning which means charging is sloooow when the battery is cold and above 50C it throttles power drastically (Bjorn couldn't get more than 66 kW of power) and above 40C it throttle charging rates.
EV6 is built on the same platform. There will be growing pains but I'm sure the car will drive amazing though.
Having literally fought others for the ability to buy a RAV4 Prime and Mach-E... the EV6 will be just as unavailable. Order it the second it opens.
