Re: When charging takes no longer than gassing up
I'm sure your home charger and your charging plan at work have you covered as to your commuting range. The range to other destinations--grocery shopping, mail drop, visiting, and so forth--would concern me more were I in your place. And lately I've had to make a few trips for 350 miles each way. The Tesla Model 3 could make it--with one visit to a Tesla Model 3/S supercharger along the way, plus one slow or fast charge at destination, especially when preparing for the return leg.
You raise an interesting point. Will the last gas(p) of internal combustion see the relegation of gasoline (or Diesel) cars to rental and long-haul freight fleets? Will the railroads take back the long-haul freight market they lost to the truckers? Will all shopping go to home delivery and on-line ordering? That might seem a different area for speculation. But already we see internal-combustion cars extending their range to 500 miles, or 600, with good driving habits. So I suspect the only thing that will kill internal combustion, will be legislation, or a new theory of individual/joint/several liability for local air pollution.
