Minimal NVH is a substantial selling point that a lot of luxury cars strive very hard to achieve too, so when it's a gimme on an EV at any price, that's going to be hard to compete with.
Your first statements, yes. The Leaf, isn't fast, but 100% on demand torque is pretty damn cool. Charging it at home has been cool, free charging at the DC Fast chargers even better. I'm acclimating to it and debating on putting in a 220v 32amp charging station at home for convenience. Having a fast version of this car, would probably do me in and I'd buy the Model 3 as long as optioned out it isn't 50k.
