About a year ago, shortly after returning from a road trip where my wife and I rented a Tesla model S, we placed a small deposit and order on a Volkswagen ID.4 AWD, after we test drove a RWD version of same. During that year, VW corporate sent me about two emails that pretty much said, thanks for the deposit, we have no bloody idea when we will be able to make your car given world events. So we kind of forgot about it, and we ended up buying a small truck, a Ford Maverick, that we are extremely happy with (also an order-and-wait situation). On Monday, dealer calls me up and says, hey your car is here, can you come in and sign papers today? Hmmm. So we did research and math given tax incentives and gas prices, test drove it (loved it), and well, today we bought it! Electric car ownership, hmm. I don't love the overly minimalist control layout (it does look good) and find it not very intuitive, it's like I'm a PC and all of a sudden my car is literally a Mac. But wow we both love the smooth and ample power, quiet running and spacious layout. I have never had nice cars before and never thought I would buy a new car and here I am, the owner of two brand new vehicles, each in their first model year and in high demand (well the VW is technically second year but when we ordered it, it was a 2021). I feel fortunate and also, kind of stunned when I look at my driveway. Three months ago I had a 15 year old minivan and a ten year old VW Golf with zero options.
