How about asking your electric car friends how far they can go from home without any worries. And how far they actually drive every day. Range Anxiety is a real thing. Most people only drive a few dozen miles per day, yet few have electric vehicles. (or use public transit for that matter.) Why? Because electric cars are more expensive to purchase, require various additional items (eg. chargers), require planning ahead (have the car charged, know how far you need to go, and where there are chargers on your route), and finally the limited range and long recharge times scare people.
As for driving thousands of miles, plenty of people do just that. You fail to consider a car going such distances will normally have more than one person in it capable of driving. I've driven/ridden, in one shot, from Birmingham AL to Raleigh NC a few times, RDU-ATL several times, RDU-DC several times... The ability to drive more than 200-300 miles per day, at any given moment, is something electric cars cannot do. And even when they can go 1000 miles, it will still take hours to recharge them. (Granted, people will have far less apprehension with a 1000 mile range car.)
