They polled within inner-city limits, where EVs would make the most sense because of the population density, price of gasoline and lack of gas stations, and better public transportation versus suburban/rural areas. Push it outside the city limits and it'll be a whole new ball game.
[censored], if those 200-300 mile range numbers are true, then that's just straight garbage, not including recharge time. I wouldn't even be able to make it to some national parks from the closest charge center.

My typical West Palm Beach to Jacksonville, FL round trip is 600 miles, plus local driving. None of the Tesla cars can make it one way. Nor is there a charger near the hotels I use.
I just don't have the time to deal with that. twitter.com/ TroyTeslike/ status/ 1038920763955396608
