90% of the time I do not drive the long distance so electric car would serve me well. However few times in a year I need long distance car. On average typical office space is occupied in 80%. 20% of workers are sick, attending remote meeting, traveling on business trip, etc. But try to run office with 80% of seats available and quickly some workers will find out, they have no seat available.
The other issue is "potential" for long travel. Buying electric car you need to assume that the need for long distance travel will not occur even if you do not plan for the moment.
