2013 FIAT 500e
My 500e doesn't limit ME, since it fully recharges the US average daily drive from a standard wall outlet while I sleep or work, & can double that distance when needed, but of course lots of people can't plug in at home or work....:I live with the limitations of my 500e
Maybe you didn't list eGolf (avail w. DC option) because of its air-cooled battery, but when I searched about a year ago they didn't seem to have the same degradation issues as other air-cooled EVs. Maybe VW Group knows a lot about air cooling from classic 911/Bug/Bus experience, or possibly it just has a much more heat-tolerant batt chemistry.I look at Chevy SparkEVs, Kia SoulEVs, and BMW i3 REx as alternative options. Each has the faster charging port though the range is similar to the 500e.
Since you listed i3, maybe they're actually okay too, but a few years ago I met a couple of their drivers at public chargers who complained about significant battery degradation. The REx onboard gas charger option is cool though, adding much less maintenance than having a separate all-gas car....:
No kidding! What the heck are they thinking?! It takes a minimum of about 1 3/4 HOURS EVERY DAY, just to recharge the average US daily drive! There's no way everyone has time for that! For most people it's only good if they can do it at work or home, where they can recharge a daily drive on L1 anyway!"L2 is good enough for everyone." It really isn't.
