Best second-hand EV as the first car?

As a new resident of the States, I'm thinking about which second-hand EV I should buy as my first electric car. As I noticed, there are way too many factors that need to be taken into consideration, so I collected a couple of questions, hopefully, you can help me in them. I would be glad to have any info on:

• Power consumption of different EVs

• Recharge times

• The quality and reliability of the built-in navigational system

• Range calculation efficiency

• Battery lifespan? Degradation over time? I’m wondering how much I can trust a few years old model in this matter

• How hard is it to find a trustworthy service for EV's?

Thank you in advance!
