I'm betting quite a few future would be BEV owners are making the question in subject. I'm one of them. As I don't have currently any car I didn't see any reason to get a garage in my apartment. There are few garages in my apartment building, but not enough for everybody. Also there are few parking spaces with possibility to connect block heaters, which would nicely work as slow charger spots, but again not enough. Common city situation. More cars than there are apartment parking places. People park in streets.
So what would a person with a BEV do if there is no charger in home to plug it in? In grand scale, this is a major problem. In Finland that is even bigger problem because of cold winters and over -20 centigrade temperatures, which is too much for Roadster battery without plugging it in.
Any thoughts how to solve that problem?
