So which do you think is better? Both qualify for federal tax credit, though 330e only receive partial credit. The model 3 extended range is faster to 60 and most reviewers like how it drives and accelerates with the instant torque. Can throw you back in the seat like an s even though it is slower than some models. Plug in hybrid means you can always get gas pretty much anywhere and don't need a parking space with an outlet so you can park in a car port or apartment garage space.

How much credit do the “e” vehicles get? I’m thinking about the X5e as a family hauler

Keep in mind that unless you have early reservation of Model 3 you might never see any tax credits. Also Tesla has best "autopilot" in the industry that should be a big selling factor.

Yes I was looking at that too. Depends on the size of the battery.

I would buy both.

Here's my thinking. This way you can have the BMW to drive now and then in three or four years when (IF) your Tesla is finally delivered, you can trade in the BMW and drive the Tesla.
