Norway would prove you otherwise.
Significant EV use over there. The number of Tesla cars I saw was massive.
They use EVs to pull trailers… boats. Not huge ones but trailers and boats all the same.
They have a network of chargers. Anyplace that our PHEV went we could charge. Even north of the arctic circle there were loads of Tesla chargers.
Now, at least Northern Norway has been hooked on practically free hydroelectric electricity that soon they’ll be exporting to the rest of Europe at market rates. But that’s a different situation and discussion than your premise.
There were no complaints about EVs in far northern climates (we spent all our time in Northern Norway, much above the arctic circle, and I actively discussed EVs with people since we used Airbnb and everyone spoke a English).
So there’s that.
The only time I spent in southern Norway was at the Oslo airport. But I saw Teslas set up like this Renault, on the E6 multiple times.

Common for any vehicle to have a hitch, but I was quite surprised at the number of teslas with them, and the number I saw actually pulling trailers:

More super chargers than gas/diesel pumps:

Some homes have updated chargers, particularly if they have a full EV. We charged our PHEV at a standard wall outlet, 12A/220V in every place we stayed that didn’t have a bigger charger. But otherwise you can get more. This isn’t great if you’re moving long distances on highway voyages, but that’s why at the gas stations, every one has 22kW and 50kW chargers.

Simple enough that my 9yo could do it with total confidence and safety.
So, yeah, there may be reasons for concern. I only own a hybrid. I’m personally a PHEV believer, more so now having driven over 1000km in one. But the EV thing isn’t an issue to these folks’ daily use, fringe cases aside. I thing the frigid cold situation was also put to bed by the ability of the teslas jammed up on I-95 in VA for days… to keep giving heat and keep operating….
So definitely less of an issue based upon objective use scenarios from real people…
