I have made this argument or point many times with other car folks. Back in the day (1970's) when we were getting ready for a road trip with my family, my father would bust out the AAA maps the night before and map out all the destinations before the final destination, MAINLY because gas stations were not as abundant and convenient as they were back then as they are now. Fast forward 40+ years and who needs a map anymore? We have gps and there is practically a gas station anywhere, anytime. BUT, EV cars have brought traveling back to the olden days/70's. You have to plan your stops to charge again. You have to plan your lunches or longer pit stops because of the time to charge...lame. A typical drive from either Sacramento to LA or Las Vegas for me is super easy and fun for me and wife/kids in my QP or CL600 or RAM Dually. It would NOT be fun in an EV. Those of you who argue the EV for getting groceries or cutting commute time. I get that. Buy a Volt. That is what my wife has. It is hard to justify a $100k HOV lane car or "grocery getter" around town.
