I'm a skeptic of the practicality of EVs for all.\nAs you should be! You brought up what I think are some excellent points. This is far better than the whining on Facebook where people just scream that they love their gas guzzling car and they are happy they will be dead before they are forced to get rid of it. Whatever.\n\nElectric certainly isn't going to be for everyone and I swear that it is far more ideal for those who have access to a second vehicle in their home. Either a spouse, or a family member\/friend they could borrow something for when they have to do long trips. I think if your introduction to EVs is when you are travelling and driving all the time, and don't have your own home charger to utilize, then a bad experience wouldn't surprise me in the least. Renting and hoping the hotel has an open charger is a gamble. But, owning, and having a charger at home... that's quite different.\n\nStill, the real barricade will be those that want to go EV, but can't because there really aren't enough chargers to go around. Apartment dwellers, those who have street-only parking. It will take them years to figure out solutions for these individuals.\n\nAlternative fuels may also eventually be a thing.\n\nI think that it's important for many to realize how disruptive electric is to a well established market. Kind of like how the Internet has turned so many industries on their heads. The introduction of the EV throws the entire ICE ecosystem on its head. I could see a point where we owned both an EV and a hybrid exclusively. But, I have a hard time figuring out how we will get to a point where people are able to actually live entirely with an EV as their single means of transportation... at least until we see sub-10 minute charging times and far more chargers available, at a reasonable price.
