I am sure that lots of people still think about this - or pretend they will do it, anyway, but whether or not they actually roadtrip frequently the idea that they can't with an EV is a negative.
That, and plenty of folks live 50 or more miles out of the nearest urban center, or in other areas where a 100+ mile round trip is quite common. Current-model LEAFs won't even get you there and back again, unless you can be certain of a charging station in the urban area for the return trip. With that sort of hassle, even home-filtered biodiesel sounds like a more attractive option.
It is great that more affordable EVs with longer range are on the horizon. But that isn't really solving the bigger problem, which is the impression that range sucks, and will continue to suck. I'm not even sure that impression is all that wrong. 200 or even 300 miles ain't squat.
