Should I buy this car, 2019 Kia E Niro

Hello, I need some help please. I live in Arizona and would like to talk to others that have an E Niro and live in the desert. Arizona gets super hot and our infrastructure for EV charging is sparse from what I can tell.

I am concerned about battery degradation.
I am concerned about charging stations not working and getting stranded

Any thoughts on this?

Correct, the battery is actively cooled. I live in the south of Spain where it gets pretty hot and degradation because of high temps is not on my worry list. However, I do recommend not parking the car over hot tarmac and leave it broiling in the sun for an entire day each day of the week.

As for chargers, I recommend the OP to use abetterrouteplanner.com to simulate his most frequent trips and see if the charging network is sufficient for his needs.
The OP is from USA, so I'm not sure abetterrouteplanner will be helpful.
No sure if it's complete but they do have quite a lot of chargers in their map.
