Wow, again, trying to paint a picture full of assumptions serves no one.But let's look at big picture ignoring that you should take lots of breaks on a long road trip for health and safety reasons - you could be like my crazy aunt and uncle that drove straight from Montana to WV and back all the time only stopping for gas several time a year for decades- sometime while hauling a heavy load.
An EV takes longer to drive long distances = true.
But most people get their vehicles serviced before a long trip.
That is not needed with an EV.
How much time does that save?
No checking oil at every gas fill-up.
No adding coolant.
No timing belt/chains jobs.
No serpentine belt concerns.
No concern over head-gaskets or exhaust leaks.
A Check Engine Light? WTF is that (said no VW owner evAr)
FWIW- I don't have a horse in this race.
EVs are at that point that the compromises seem extremely minor considering the pros.
It takes two and a half hours longer, trying to candy coat it is as transparent as it is sad.
