  •  and the guys that owned (3+ / 0-)

    the first internal combustion engine cars faced similar issues, plus in some places, being fined for scaring the horses.  The technology, as far as practical road experience, is in its infancy.   Similar changes over time in what EVs can do should be forthcoming, just as power, range and features of IC cars changed.

    The Tesla really isn't yet a touring car, a long distance ride.  It can be done, but it doesn't feature the convenience of driving an IC car.   But over time, that will probably change.  No one right now who needs to make plus 100 mile trips routinely probably wants to own an EV to make those trips.

    I spent two years in Chicago a good long while back.  In all the time I lived there, I made one trip out of the city by car that went over 100 miles.  I could have used an EV with little or no inconvenience if they had existed back then.
