Several years ago I was considering the Model S but went a different route because there was no SC, dealer or charging stations in my state (I live in Knoxville, TN) so ended up leasing another brand. My lease is up and now I am again considering the Model S. Things have improved some. There is a charging station in Knoxville, and SC and dealer near Nashville, but still 180 miles away.
I would get it in a heartbeat if there was a SC in Knoxville. My only concern is servicing the vehicle and having to drive 180 miles each way. I've seen half a dozen Model S's in Knoxville over the past years so obviously people where I live are buying them in spite of the SC distance.
If possible, I would like to hear from existing Model S owners who live more than 150 miles from a SC. What has been your experience in this regard? How often have you had to travel there? What can I expect? I don't want to go into this with blinders on.
Thank you for any input.
