Not ubiquitous, but I can see a charge lasting me a week. The nuisance is I'm in an apartment with basement parking: if many people do this there's going to need to be some new wiring system there so we get charged (dollars, not electrons) appropriately. Otherwise I'd buy (lease) one tomorrow.

The answer to that would be to let the 'local automakers' leave your country rather than prop them up. (like happened here, Australia) Short term pain, but probably long term gain. Carmakers like Elon Musk/Tesla with very different car making models aren't likely to oppose this.
