I'm on the verge of buying a Model S as my BMW 530D is now getting a little old, a little high mileage and frankly, I've been looking at EVs for around 4 years, but unable to find one in my budget with the appropriate range etc. I want a little advice/some opinions from those who already own and use their Model S daily.
I'm looking at buying a used Model S 70D from 2016. Will have less than 60k on the clock. What concerns me even now is the use that I'll be getting from it. I regularly commute (weekly) between Sunderland and Heathrow, a journey of 280 miles each way (give or take a few). I'd have a Type 2 charger at home so I'd be leaving with a full charge and I'd have supercharger use halfway there. When I arrive, I wouldn't be using my car for 3-4 days as I walk between my accommodation to the office. There is no fancy charger at that location and I'd be forced to use a 3-pin plug for the time I'm parked up. I'd then be returning home and stopping halfway to use a supercharger.
Would this kind of use have any detrimental effect on the battery or it's longevity?
Does anyone here use their car in a similar way, and how are you finding it?
I'm already thinking about the 30 minute stop to charge, as I currently don't stop if I don't have to in my ICE car so the other factors are important to me.
Also, how long will it hold a charge for when not used? If I park at a long stay car park while I go on holiday for 2 weeks, will the charge still be there when I return home?
Thanks in advance for any information you can give me. I'm looking forward to joining you on the road to cleaner driving.
