It wasn't a joke when cars had not much more range in the 1930s. The Model T got about 15 to 20 mpg and had a 10 gallon tank. That's the same range as the Tesla S. And this is precisely why there are "gasoline alleys", leftover remnants of that era when every city had a string of stations around every major artery so people could top up again on their trips.
Except that in the `30's it still only took 10 minutes to top off and you were on the next 200-mile leg of your trip. Batteries and charging have a long way to go and may never catch up to that level of convenience.
