and Elon Musk is right.....99% of all travel trips per day are under an electric cars capabilities. Just because some poster does a lot of interstate travel does not change that fact. When they get electric cars on par with gas cars costs....then you will see. And btw, I won't be one of them jumping on the electric car bandwagon. I'm older and like my gas powered cars. But soon we will die off leaving a more open minded generation. Now after saying all this, I am still not convinced electrics will hit cost parity anytime soon. The way gas mileage is going, its a moving target as gasoline cars have greatly improved. Time will tell but I don't see 2025 as having electrics take over either.

I think it was Musk/Tesla that claimed most American's don't drive more than 50 miles a day. Not sure if true, but even if its double that... an EV can do that no problem.
