I mean... I... quite literally said exactly why I was able to look at EA chargers and why I was doing so.Is it me, or is it weird to have so many current Tesla owners who are experts in the Electrify America charging network???? Do they have some much free time on their hands that they are surveying random locations to verify reliability, and the exact reasons why people may, or may not be, having challenges charging??? Or, are they spending their weekends reading PlugShare Electrify America location reviews????
And then:I see EA chargers in many of the same parking lots as Superchargers, and since I'll be relying on them soon I often go take a look.
As mentioned *literally and explicitly* in my post:...your knowledge of charging at an Electrify America location is 2nd or 3rd hand, or conjecture. Please refrain from commenting on something you have no experience with.
I think a LOT of long time Tesla owners who are consider their first non-Tesla are, in fact, quite interested in the EA network.This summer, at (4) supercharging stops where I was able to wander over to the EA chargers and take a look, I saw:
The particular Tesla owner that you're replying to never claimed one would be stranded relying on EA.I have driven 22,000 miles in a Porsche Taycan, and 10,000 miles in an Audi e-Tron. Been to 11 states in those 32,000 miles. Never been stranded. Ever.
My direct, 1st hand observations are why I stated those exact words, yes.But, is it bad enough for some one with no experience with the network to share that they will "be more wary taking roadtrips in the R1T."
Experience with CCS EVs is not necessary to relay 1st hand observations of CCS EV charging one has witnessed.Why spout that kind of bull$hit when they have no experience with CCS compatible EVs...
Hopefully less than a year - Early order number, passed on LE only because of Max Pack requirement.... and are a year to two years a way from getting their Rivian???
If you were having one of your great EA charging experiences in your non-Tesla and noticed Tesla drivers in the adjacent parking spots having problems with Supercharging, I would actually expect you to share that experience?I have ownership experience with Model S' and Model X's from 2015 to 2019. That does not make me an expert on the Tesla supercharging network, or the recent vehicles, so I keep my mouth shut about it.
Nothing about my EA concerns mean I'm not getting the R1T, or am even less excited about it. I'm just as excited.Let's focus on future Rivian ownership and things we know about.
