Quick poll among everyone here -- will the Ariya be your first EV or have you owned one before?

It will be a completely new experience for me.

The closest was being a passenger in a Chevy Bolt (Uber) and was impressed by how smooth it drove.
Anyone share similar experiences?

Well, I drive a Chevy Bolt so that might be considered a similar experience. What sold me was stomping on the accelerator. Instant torque is a wonderful thing.

I have never driven in an electric car, but I am looking forward to the responsiveness, handling and most of all the quiet that it promises.

Tax credits please explain....
Basically an EV purchase allow the purchaser to obtain a 7500 tax credit based until a specific manufacturer has sold 200,000 eligible vehicles (basically something that plugs in). After a company has sold 200K EVs the tax credit ramps down quarter by quarter. GM and Tesla have both exhausted the credit, nissan is getting close at 150K EVs sold. Federal EV Tax Credit Phase Out Tracker By Automaker – EVAdoption

Depending on what State you live in there might be an additional state credit. Here in Maryland I received a rebate for the EV purchase as well as for installing a level 2 charging station...rules vary by state!

Keep in mind that you only get the tax credit if you have tax liability and you need to pay attention to politics as they can change the rules.

Waiting for EPA numbers to come out. Hoping it hits the 300-306 range. It’s really needs every mile it can get. Somehow with a larger battery, it has shorter range; when compared to model y.

Comparing a Tesla to any other vehicle results in the same conclusion. The Tesla electric motor is simply more efficient than anyone else's. EPA MPGe ratings:
Model 3 = 134
Model Y = 125
MachE = 100
ID.4 = 97

So the MachE/ID.4 is 25% less efficient and the Ariya will fall in 15 to 25% less efficient range.

I’m looking at this article and it has a chart of specs and ranges towards the bottom. Like this is WLTP, and EPA will be revised down 10-20 miles off of what’s in the chart.

Does that table of ranges towards the bottom get anyone nervous? Then also knowing that we will have to be good people and charge that battery to 80-90%. I would get the larger batter obv, but still...

2017 Chevy Bolt EV, now 38,000 miles. Love it, but: no ACC; no "lane centering", only LDW and "late = over the line" LKA; max DC Level 2 (DCFC) charging rate of 50kW; no internal navigation (only Google maps via Android Auto); EPA range of 238 miles; FWD only; & loss of Fed tax credit meant new Bolt EV prices plummeted, making trade-ins also lose value (approx. $3-4 K).
