I bought a 2017 Titanium with 24000 miles for around $20K. It does have all the bells and whistles (adaptive cruise, maintain lane, moon/sun roof, upgraded rims/tires,etc).
I do live in Florida which seems to be an excellent climate for electric/hybrid cars. As a hybrid I get low 40s cruising at 70 to 80 mph. When I plug in, I get 100+.
It takes about 7 hours at 110V and 2 hours at 220V to fully charge the battery. Some studies show the battery should not be fully charged/discharged and should be kept in a middle range.
I have read articles from Ford that the battery will last the life of the car. There is also the 8 year 100,000 mile hybrid drivetrain warranty.
Like you said, it can be a hobby. Sometimes I find spaces closer than handicap parking since I have an EV. Other times I am willing to walk the half mile to find a plug in location.
There are a few apps to help. Chargepoint is the main app for me. There are many places that offer free charging. Winter Park Florida has many free EV spots throughout the city. Orlando offers low cost charging. Museums often have free EV spots.
Malls, theme parks, retail locations have charging stations but the cost ends up being more than using the gasoline engine.
The downside is finding a dealer that can work on the car. I just had my closest dealer hold the car for two days trying to figure out how to perform a modem firmware update.
Ford Mobile support can give you a list of dealers who can handle EV vehicles in your area. Evidently my dealer could not and now I need to travel 25 miles to a dealer that can.
