yeah, I don't have a dog in this fight, but for the record - for the vast majority of people in America range anxiety is not a real issue, but the perception of it is very real. How many times have you reached for that flashlight in the back of your truck, only to finally remember that you haven't changed the batteries in 3 years, and it's a toxic mess. I think that affects people's thinking. Living in the western part of the country, there are definitely areas where range anxiety is legitimate with a fossil fuel vehicle as well - but for the most part today's EV's would work just fine for just about everybody.
BUT I said all that to say this - if submitting to our robot overlords will put one of these in my garage? I'm listening..... has a cool VW Type 3 vibe
