Hello All,
Joining from outside San Jose, CA where it is Teslaville and has been for years.

Currently driving a 6.5 year-old Honda Odyssey (ICE). Have a Kia EV9 reservation that I’m stalling on. Considering a Lexus GX hybrid when it comes out. Deliberating whether to 1- make myself a guinea pig with a first gen all-electric vehicle; 2- wait (and wait) for more EV’s to arrive and more charging stations to be built; or 3- settle for hybrid (and wait) for the Lexus GX to come hybrid in the U.S.
Oh, and also wavering on whether I need to only consider a seven seater or whether a six seater would be okay. We are a family of five that drives carpool a lot.

Multiple dealers are only 15-20 away.
 
Welcome jozabo! I can't believe how expensive the EV9 becomes once you begin adding additional features. I've spotted a few on the streets, and they look impressive. However, my primary worry with the current electric vehicles is their rate of depreciation.
