I'm a long time lurker and Tesla enthusiast. I've been waiting for this car since 2010. I don't care about a HUD (yes it would have been cool) and while waiting for AWD is unfortunate (I would have gotten it but now I won't) I'm over it. I'm high on Tesla and I will be getting the car as soon as I possibly can.
However, I live in a condo building with outdoor assigned parking and I'm trying to determine the best way to charge my future Tesla. There are no other EV's in the lot and no available outlets to modify. The condo is basically a starter house (in the city) and in 3 years I'll hopefully be moving so I want to spend as little as possible. The condo building is small (22 units) and I will be unlikely to convince them to install a charger.
I'm confident they will allow me to make modifications as long as I pay for them. Does anyone have any suggestions for the most cost effective solution? And how can I address the condo boards likely concern that I am paying for the charging costs and not the building as a whole?
FYI- The nearest supercharger is 30 miles away and not a viable option.
I drive 84 miles round trip for work (nearest supercharger to work is an additional 12 miles/20 minutes past work)
