I see charging on road trips as a huge obstacle to EV adoption. I am retired, and not in a hurry, so I am fine with it. But with our current charging infrastructure, we are renting a car to go to Rochester, next month. Driving the Bolt would have required a night in a motel, each way, and a side trip to visit old friends would have been out of the question.Now sure, if you said you'd drive that 8 hours (500 miles) without stopping, then yes, ICE cars are better for your purposes right now. even if you only stop once for fuel, 8 hours and 15 minutes, it's better. But at any time, if you decide to stop to pick something up from a store, 8 hours and 45 minutes. Then, if you decide you need to use the bathroom, 9 hours flat. Then, if you decide you want to grab something to eat, 9 hours and 30 minutes. We've basically just rewritten the story of the tortoise and the hare using EVs versus ICE vehicles.
I think we should ban cars and all ride bicycles...for many reasons. But it is not going to happen, any more than EVs are going to take over from ICE cars. "Give me convenience, or give me death!", is our national motto.
