Ok, yes, it's over a year away and anything could happen between now and then, but I'm seriously thinking of the factory pickup option.
First, I live in Ohio and probably wont be selecting every option there is so a factory pickup would, potentially, get me my car sooner, as well as increase my odds of getting the full tax credit. Secondly, it would be nice mini vacation for my wife and I.
I've got a couple of questions though:
1. Do you save on the destination charge by doing that? That alone would just about pay for the trip.
2. Are there any concerns with jumping in a brand new car, literally just off the assembly line, and driving it 2,500 miles? I know with ICE vehicles there used to be a "break in" period, does that apply to EVs?
3. Any other considerations?
