We used to use re-chargable vehicles all the time. They were called horses. After a certain distance, they needed quite a long time to re-fuel and rest.
The solution was to swap the discharged horses out for new ones. This would also work well for electric vehicles. If cars are very easy to rent, there's no need to own a specific one, so once it's flat, plug it in and pick another.
Car ownership is dropping in Europe as it becomes cheaper and more convenient to rent. Rent a big car for the family holiday, and then a small one for a day trip, and then a van for moving furniture. Much more convenient than having to use the same vehicle for everything. Getting a train 90% of the way and easily renting a car for the last 10 miles is a nicer journey than driving all the way. Now, an electric car is fine for ten miles, while it wouldn't have managed the whole journey.
It's not about making electric cars behave just like the petrol ones we are used to. It's about changing how we transport ourselves around.
