I'd say get a Chevy Bolt now. There is a dealership in San Antonio selling new 2020 LT with "comfort and convenience" package and DCFC for $22k. Most other people report ~$24k out the door. There is a Costco discount on top of massive manufacturer discounts.

On the used market, I'm seeing 2017s as low as ~$13k.

There is a recall on 2017-2019 due to a handful of fires while charging. That may make it more difficult to buy used from a dealership. A permanent remedy is expected in January, but in the meantime the recommendation from GM is to use the charge limiting function to avoid the last 5% of charge.
