I would not buy it. I think that this GREEN movement is too polytical. We have so many nice reliable cars to choose from, so why to jump into this one. It is expensive and with no reliability data.

I might buy one, depending on my financial distributions when I retire in 40 days. I travel outside town about once a year, otherwise I will be driving on all electric energy.

Well done.  I have neglected to do the calculations, but this shows pretty clearly that if we continue using fossil fuels for electrical energy production, which we will, then electric cars at this point in time are not a good idea.
