I know I've seen Soul EV around on rare occasions in the Chicago area (other than mine) -- any other Chicagoans around?
I lived there from 2012 to 2022 but didn't get my Soul EV till after leaving. I was always surprised at how slowly the infrastructure has developed there for a city that size in comparison to other places in the US. Even Atlanta seems to have more public charging infrastructure than Chicago. I'm curious how your experience has been with public charging or if you've even needed it. I remember using a first gen Leaf from i-go car share before it became enterprise car share back in the day and there just wasn't a lot of places to charge in the city or in the burbs. It still seems relatively sparse on plugshare these days too.
