I keep saying this:

I'll drive an EV when it can carry the load my ML320 does (or, if you like, an Explorer or Trailblazer or Grand Cherokee) for at least 300 miles on and off Interstate highways at freeway speed (70+ MPH) with adequate power reserves for passing, then be ready to do it again in 15 minutes, repeated indefinitely. Oh, and I have to be able to buy it used for $15K or so.

Sure, lots of folks depend on it, but they accept mobility restrictions that only a car can alleviate.

And then there's the USA outside the cities...
