"Very long"? I not infrequently drive three hours to the nearest major city, do some necessary business, eat a nice meal, and turn around and drive three hours home. Six times a year, at least; often more. Plus two to four trips of five hours each way, plus one that involves really high mileage - I did 3000 miles in eight days recently.
A pure EV would make a great commuter car for me, because I live really, really close to work, but that's another car that I have to garage (no space; something's going to have to park outside) and pay insurance and taxes on (not cheap), on top of which it's extremely expensive for what it is. I don't buy cars only for my daily use case; if I did, I'd just drive something tiny and cheap, because all I really want for that is climate control and protection from the elements. I need something that can do 800-1000 miles in a day, and EV's are nowhere near that level yet.
